Constructed Wetland at Sylvester Manor

Non-Proprietary Vegetated Gravel Recirculating Constructed Wetland Alternative Onsite Wastewater Treatment System

The NYS Center for Clean Water Technology (CCWT) is collaborating with Suffolk County and Natural Systems Utilities Engineering on the monitoring and maintenance plan for the non-proprietary constructed wetland treatment system at Sylvester Manor, which commenced operation in Spring 2017. Licensed technicians will maintain the system, and extensive monitoring will be performed by County Health Department personnel, NSU engineers, and faculty and students at the NYS CCWT at Stony Brook University, again partnering with local maintenance technicians.  As the first in Suffolk County, the system will be studied along with other like projects for full regulatory approval and replicability.
