Caption: Stormwater Treatment Area 3/4 in Palm Beach County, Florida, USA; the largest constructed wetland in the world. The water and vegetation of these vast man-made wetlands naturally absorb and cleanse excess nutrients from water before it enters the Everglades. This reduces the quantities of substances such as phosphorus flowing from agricultural areas, allowing conservation of the native wetland ecosystem of the Everglades.
