Published data pertaining to the treatment of wastewater by 26 wetlands have been assembled and analyzed to identify general principles for successful design of wetland facilities. Source of operating data have been tabulated. Performance is correlated with overall system features but cannot be predicted on the current basis. A simplified compartment model is presented. The selection of natural sites and the physical facilities associated with wetland treatment are discussed. A protocol for site review is presented. Operational techniques and the use of constructed (artificial) wetlands are also considered. Wastewater impact on wetland and the economics of wetland treatment are discussed.
Final report for 7/80-10/81; April 1983.
