Constructed Wetlands in Water Pollution Control

1st Edition

Proceedings of the International Conference on the Use of Constructed Wetlands in Water Pollution Control, Held in Cambridge, UK, 24–28 September 1990



Constructed Wetlands in Water Pollution Control documents the proceedings of the International Conference on the Use of Constructed Wetlands in Water Pollution Control, held in Cambridge, UK, 24-28 September 1990. This volume contains 70 papers that are organized into 12 parts. Part 1 includes papers such as the need for hydrophyte-based systems in the treatment of waste water from small communities and soil oxygenation in constructed reed beds. Part 2 contains studies on nitrogen and phosphorus removal. The papers in Part 3 are devoted to sewage treatment while Part 4 deals with sludge treatment. Part 5 presents case studies on wetlands, wastewater, and reed bed treatment systems. Part 6 focuses on agricultural waste treatment. Part 7 contains papers on wetland and waste treatment for small populations. Part 8 covers industrial waste treatment while Parts 9 and 10 deal with mining waste treatment. Part 11 takes up the design of treatment systems. Part 12 contains 20 poster papers.
