Limnowet® constructed wetland is designed to treat wastewater from village of Karbinci in Nortnern Macedonia. The project has been funded by Suiss development cooperation. A constructed wetland consists of 4 horisontal beds with net surface of 2.750 m². Due to flat surface area, the water needs to be pumped into 3-chamber sedimentation tank. From here, water flows gravitationally until it reaches the recipient (Bregalnica river). Next to the constructed wetland there is a sludge drying reed bed for sludge treatment. The defect liability period is concluding in 2019 and has proven efficiency of the plant and suitability of technology selection.
