During the growing season of 2020, restoration activities started. Non-native plant species like giant reed (Arundo donax) and Asian bittersweet (Celastrus orbiculatus) were treated with herbicide and once withered, removed from the site. In the early fall of 2020 the remaining plant litter was burned. In the future, native wetland species such as cattails (Typha latifolia, T. angustifolia) and broadleaf arrowhead (Sagittaria latifolia) will be planted to restore the function of the constructed wetland.
