Collecting Hydric Soils with Organic Carbon

Marc is in a stormwater wetland taking some soil samples to determine pollution removal through natural biogeochemical processes. The sample below shows signs of high pollutant removal capability.

Look how much organic carbon build up there is in this wetland! Organic carbon enhances potential natural pollution removal in wetlands. As ecological engineers, we search for ways to harness this natural potential.
