A brief description of the natural wastewater systems used to handle the institution’s wastewater:

"Natural wastewater systems use plants and bacteria to break down and neutralize pollutants in wastewater and have minimal dependence on mechanical elements. Natural systems minimize the use of chemicals and require little energy to operate. Examples include constructed treatment wetlands, Living Machines and other technologies that treat wastewater by mimicking the biological, chemical and physical processes occurring in natural wetlands."
