Constructed wetland

Environment protection is one of the foundations of plant in the Capanna. Amon the few plants in Tessin it is the first in the Centovalli. This constructed wetland (Fitodepurazione) is a natural, environmentally sound system for the defecation of water. It protects underground water in endangered zones. This plant can be accessed, without water reaching the surfacte. This way the absence of unpleasant smells or insects is guaranteed.

Constructed wetlands are vegetated with plants, where wastewater is purified with a combination of plants, micro organisms, wastewater components and - with undergravel filters - also the filter substate.
