Project title: Constructed wetlands on agricultural drainage systems for enhancement of landscape´s water residence time and improvement of water quality
Project coordinator: VÚMOP, v.v.i.
Project partners: FES CULS in Prague, Dekonta, a.s.
Project leader: prof. Ing. Vymazal Jan, CSc.
Project schedule: 2017-2020
Total project budget of FLS CULS: 4 125 000 Kč
Based on results which are to be acquired during project experiments, the aim of the proposed project is to quantify the efficiency of constructed wetlands (CW) treating water from agricultural drainage systems for enhancement of landscape´s water residence time and improvement of water quality for nutrients and selected pesticides. Methods and steps for design and proposals of CW will be formulated as well as the procedures for arrangement of issues related to land parcels ownerships / lease. During the project, agricultural and nature-conservation activities in a landscape will be integrated in order to strenghten the dialogue among farmers, catchment managers, environmentalists, land owners and public to set the optimal landscape management for the sustainable use of water resources.
