Abstrakti

One of the water quality management practices in forested catchments is to construct wetland buffers between managed areas and recipient water courses. Wetland buffers can be constructed simply by routing runoff from forested areas to natural peatlands and wetlands, or by rewetting lower sections of drained peatlands by filling in or blocking the drainage ditches. The use of natural and restored wetland buffers for reducing nutrient and sediment export from forested catchments, particularly catchments dominated by forestry-drained peatlands, has been studied actively in Finland during the last 15 years. The studies have shown highly variable retention capacity for wetland buffers with different site characteristics and under different environmental conditions. In favorable conditions, high amounts of sediments and adhered mineral elements may be deposited within peat and surface vegetation of the buffer. Dissolved nutrients can be retained biologically into plant.
