Abstract: There is a high cost to the building of new or expanded sewage plants so there is an effort to find less expensive ways to manage sewage disposal. A seven-year study by University of Florida may have found a solution by having secondarily treated sewage piped into a cypress dome swamp. The cypress trees and duck weed absorbed most of the sewage matter, and water was found to be purified by the time it seeped through to the aquifer. Dr. Katherine Ewel, the project co-director, is encouraged by the results. There are several sections to this report with intervals of blank screens.
