This beautiful wetland was once a dry meadow until Allegheny Land Trust, a nonprofit organization that protects lands in southwestern Pennsylvania, constructed a passive wetland treatment system in 2009 to remove iron from abandoned mine drainage. The wetland is located at Wingfield Pines near Bridgeville, PA within the floodplain of Chartiers Creek. This image is the terminal wetland in a series of settling ponds. To view the ponds earlier in the sequence of this treatment system visit: www.gigapan.org/gigapans/58667/.

    Thanks for putting up these pictures. I was trying to explain this project to someone and was pleased to be able to provide a "virtual field trip." Have tried to use the site to visit other areas and have yet to find anything else as interesting.
