• The smaller footprint required by this system reduces land costs.

• The technology is reliable and proven and supported by many years of performance monitoring; it has received government approval for installation and operation at a number of locations.

• Very little energy is required to operate the system, thus reducing operating costs; a typical system consumes 12 to 20 cents of electricity per day.

• Given the absence of standing water, nuisances problems associated with other wetlands (eg. insects and odour) are not a concern with AQUA wetlands.

• The system operates year-round, even in temperate and colder climates with no additonal heat input and no decrease in treatment volume or efficiency. This avoids costly storage and trucking and treatment costs associated with many other systems.

• The use of an AQUA wetland sends out a positive message about corporate responsibility and environmental stewardship.
