Arcata Marsh – natural water treatment

The Arcata Marsh & Wildlife Sanctuary is an integral part of the Arcata Wastewater Treatment Plant – that’s a really natural way to treat water! Pages on Appropedia share details on processes, including the Digester, Clarifiers, Chlorination and Compost; as well as background, such as History of the land, and Bird life.
