Se7en Wetlands | 2020 WWD Top Projects
Se7en Wetlands is 1,600 acres of constructed wetlands built to provide tertiary treatment and final polishing to the City of Lakeland, Florida’s wastewater effluent. In addition to its use as a treatment solution, the acreage is also open to the public for hikes, birdwatching and running, which required coordination with the Lakeland Parks & Recreation Department, to ensure safety of the visitors to the city’s largest.
In this video interview, hear from Sarah Malone, Se7en Wetlands manager; Bill Anderson, Lakeland director of water utilities; Pam Page, Lakeland deputy director of parks and recreation about the city’s reasons behind the project and challenges it overcame to make it a reality. Additionally, members of the engineering firm that helped make the project a reality—Bruce Hall, SM&E principal landscape architect, and Jay Hood, SM&E director of landscape architecture—explain what makes the project special from a design perspective.
