Natural wetlands function as water retention basins, sediment traps, and stormwater treatment areas. Wetlands can be implemented with or without additions which can improve the treatment capacity. With the correct management practices, wetlands can maintain and enhance hydrologic processes and water quantity; reduce soil erosion; design and manage enhanced and created wetlands to accommodate changes in hydrologic variability.
