Canadian Shield Consultants use the Aqua created wetland technology for effective and efficient wastewater treatment. The Aqua technology has been refined to enhance overall treatment performance and to address traditional problems in colder climates when biological treatment activity slows.

AQUA - Created Wetland for Wastewater Treatment

Constructed and natural wetlands can be used to clean polluted waters through various physical, chemical and biological processes. These wetlands can remove nutrients, metals and other problematic substances from wastewater prior to discharge into the natural environment. With an Aqua wetland, wastewater is discharged into a vertical flow treatment system, flowing freely through the system at a slow pace that allows the wetland plants to cleanse the wastewater.

  • Food, brewery and winery processing waste
  • Greenhouse, specialty crop discharge and runoff
  • Aquaculture discharge
  • Stormwater runoff
  • Golf course
  • Sanitary sewage
  • Livestock wastewater
  • Aggregate and mining washwater and runoff
  • Landfill leachate
  • Technology is reliable, proven, and supported by many years of performance monitoring
  • It has received government approval for installation and operation at many locations
  • Requires very little energy to operate
  • Insects, odour and other nuisance problems are not a factor as there is no standing water
  • The system operates year-round
  • The smaller footprint required by the system reduces land costs

"We were very impressed with your heavy duty machinery, and realized we were not dealing with a start-up company. All workmen on the site knew their jobs and performed all labour with such care and skill. I must add a personal comment that the workers were very amicable, answered all our questions and did not mind the interruptions when we asked for clarification as to what they were doing"
