Clogging influence on metals migration and removal in sub-surface flow constructed wetlands.

Chromium (Cr) and Nickel (Ni) removal from secondary effluent has been evaluated in a four year research program to determine the effectiveness of Sub-Surface Flow (SSF) Constructed Wetlands (cw(s)). Tests were performed in small scale (10 l/h) and full scale (150 m(3)/d) SSF cw(s). Metals removal was also assessed as a function of increased clogging that occurred in the cw(s) over the course of the study. Cr and Ni content were evaluated in sediments at various locations along the flow path… CONTINUE READING
