Wastewater management includes multiple approaches for treating wastewater and increasing water quality. Poplar and willow plantings have the capacity to assist in these efforts and include many benefits for the community. Learn more about how these trees are being used in a cost-effective way to remove contaminants, treat wastewater, and improve water quality, as well as a case study from Woodburn, OR. There will be time to ask questions from current growers as well as time to compare notes.
