Wastewater Treatment in Constructed Wetlands with Horizontal Sub-Surface Flow


This book fills a gap in the literature by providing an extensive, worldwide overview of wastewater treatment via constructed wetlands with horizontal sub-surface flow (HF CWs). Special attention is paid to assessing the use of this treatment technology in individual countries and treatment performance of various HF CWs with respect to major pollutants in different types of wastewater. The book provides a broad base of knowledge, including: processes occurring in wetland soils and overlying water; various types of constructed wetlands for wastewater treatment; detailed information about design parameters, functioning, operation and maintenance, and costs of HF CWs; evaluations of treatment efficiency of HF CWs under diverse conditions; and information on the global use of HF CWs for various types of wastewater. Case studies from over 50 countries and more than 250 colour photos that illustrate the science make this an invaluable text.
