Category Explanation
This Single Source Award is being awarded in accordance with Department of the Interior Policy 505 DM 2.14 B; (1) Unsolicited Proposal and (4) Unique Qualifications, which allows for award without competition to an applicant. This recipient and project meet this criteria due to the fact that the use of constructed wetlands to mitigate effluent from an aquaculture facility is an innovative approach to waste water treatment. There are only a few examples of projects like this being done in the world, and most are taking place in Europe, Asia, and Australia. Professors at Montana State University have unique expertise in not only designing constructed wetlands to operate in a cold weather climate but also implementing these systems into full scale rather than pilot scale operations. The unique expertise that is housed at Montana State University, Center for Biofilm Engineering coupled with the fact that it is in close proximity to both Ennis National Fish hatchery and the Bozeman Fish Technology Center makes it uniquely qualified to be involved in the implementation of a constructed wetland at Ennis National Fish Hatchery.
