NWRM Case Study 117 - Nummela 'GATEWAY' Wetland Park, Finland

NWRM Case Study 117 - Nummela 'GATEWAY' Wetland Park, Finland

In 2010, the Nummela Gateway Wetland Park (2ha), Finland was constructed both as water environment mitigation landscapes and as urban park. Monitoring of the Nummela Gateway wetland park over a period of three years shows that constructed wetlands rapidly self-establish, resulting in an increase in biodiversity and the establishment of several ecosystem services (e.g. erosion and flood control, and reduction of pollutants in runoff water). The constructed wetland also provides a range of other benefits including opportunities for recreation and education.
