Our 24’x36′ greenhouse is set up with locations for up to nine separate small-scale soil column experiments. At present we are utilizing six locations, with plans to expand to the full nine.

Our constructed wetland cells are currently in their second iteration, being currently set up to support a thesis for Samantha Roberts, a PhD student at Stony Brook University’s Center for Clean Water Technology.
