Creating a Wetland Buffer

U.S. Army Garrison Aberdeen Proving Ground-Before: A former open burning/open detonation and chemical warfare material disposal site showed signs of soil, groundwater, sediment, and surface water contamination. Personnel placed a sand/chitin mix into the pond as a sediment cover to act as a wetland buffer for plant nutrients, and to provide a food source for bacteria to break down contamination.
