provided image
Water utilities in Texas and around the country are incorporating wetlands into their water treatment and delivery systems.

The natural filtering processes that occur in wetlands can help water utilities make used water clean once again. KETR spoke with Loretta Mokry, an environmental scientist with Fort Worth-based Alan Plummer Associates, who describes how the Tarrant Regional Water District implemented a "constructed wetlands" program.

Mark Haslett has served at KETR since 2013. Since then, the station's news operation has enjoyed an increase in listener engagement and audience metrics, as well recognition in the Texas AP Broadcasters awards.
