This outstanding new book examines the planning, design, construction, and operation of wetlands used for water quality treatment. Treatment Wetlands is the first comprehensive book to systematically describe all aspects of this new technology. Topics include all major wetland configurations, wastewater sources, and combinations of climatic conditions.
This complete reference contains detailed information on wetland ecology, wetland water quality, selection of appropriate technology, design for consistent performance, construction guidance, and operational control through effective monitoring. Design approaches that can be tailored to specific wetland treatment projects are also included. Rule-of-thumb methods, regression-based empirical design approaches, and rational methods are explained facilitating wetland design based on multi-parameter input conditions.
* Includes engineered wetlands for municipal, industrial, and agricultural wastewater treatment
* Provides complete project planning, including comparison of specific wetland technology, site specific studies, permitting considerations, estimated construction and operation costs, and case histories
* Presents a summary of North American wetland treatment system database
* Covers design methods for treatment of biochemical oxygen demand, suspended solids, nitrogren, phosphorous, pathogens, and trace metals
