Chestnut of the University of North Carolina began a five-year study of using coastal lagoons (with marsh wetland littoral vegetation) for recycling and reuse of municipal wastewaters (Odum, 1985). , 1972; Stiven and Hunter, 1976). In 1972, the University of Florida began a research effort directed at assessing the effectiveness of natural cypress wetlands for municipal wastewater recycling. From March 1974 until September 1977, secondarily treated municipal wastewater from a trailer park north of Gainesville was discharged to two isolated cypress wetlands (domes), and two control wetlands were also monitored.

Flow to this wetland was discontinued in 1991 when a zero surface discharge option was implemented through landscape irrigation and groundwater recharge. 10 The Reedy Creek, Florida, system utilizes a preexisting forested wetland for wastewater polishing. 6/19/08 11:24:43 AM 14 Treatment Wetlands With wetlands being protected by federal law, the use of natural wetlands for wastewater treatment became limited at the end of the 20th century. Hammer and Bastian (1989) during the conference on constructed wetlands in Chattanooga, Tennessee, stated: Although some natural wetlands have been effectively used for water quality improvement, we do not wish to encourage additional use.

By the 1980s, most constructed wetlands in Germany were RZM systems, although examples of the MPIP system were constructed in St. , 1990), and Oaklands Park, United Kingdom (Burka and Lawrence, 1990). 16 The HSSF reedbed at Acle, United Kingdom. HSSF Constructed Wetlands The first full-scale RZM wetland into operation in 1974 in Liebenburg-Othfresen, Germany, for treatment of municipal wastewater (Kickuth, 1977). The area of about 22 ha was originally used to dump waste material (silt, clay, and dross) derived from mining of iron ore.
