Biological methods for the treatment of wastewaters -- Types of constructed wetland -- Applications of the technology -- Framework for interpreting and predicting water quality improvement -- Mechanisms and results for water quality improvement -- Design -- Plants and planting -- System start-up -- Economics -- Case studies. This book presents a comprehensive up-to-date survey of wetland design techniques and operational experience from treatment wetlands. It is the first and only global synthesis of information related to constructed treatment wetlands. Types of constructed wetland, major design parameters, role of vegetation, hydraulic patterns, loadings, treatment efficiency, construction, operation and maintenance costs are discussed in depth. History of the use of constructed wetlands and case studies from various parts of the world are included as well. The book will be indispensible for wastewater treatment researchers and designers, decision makers in public authorities, wetland engineers, environmentalists, and landscape ecologists.
