Abstract : This study evaluates the utility of constructed wetlands for remediating explosives contaminated groundwaters using bench scale flow-through type reactors. Specifically the study examines: the degradation of TNT, TNB, RDX, and HMX in contaminated waters in plant lagoons and gravel-based wetlands. The study also provides design recommendations for the wetland demonstration project to be located at the Milan Army Ammunition Plant (MAAP), in Tennessee.
