Constructed Wetlands for Reclamation and Reuse of Wastewater and Urban Stormwater: A Review

In recent years, increasing attention has been given for reclamation and reuse of water (wastewater and stormwater) in the context of augmenting water supplies. Constructed wetland (CW) systems make

Treatment of agricultural wastewater with constructed wetlands

TREATMENT OF AGRICULTURAL WASTEWATER WITH CONSTRUCTED WETLANDS By Umesh Adhikari Animal manure contains essential plant nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium along with high number of

Performance of a constructed wetland as an upstream intervention for stormwater runoff quality management

The results suggest that vegetated microcosm constructed wetlands can potentially be used to pre-treat stormwater within the catchment and reduce pollutant load into wastewater treatment plants and consequently better raw water quality for water treatment plants.

Phytoremediation of domestic wastewater using a hybrid constructed wetland in mountainous rural area

The ANN model could be considered as an efficient tool to predict the studied phytoremediation performances using HCWs in a rural mountainous area and showed a very high capacity to remove total coliforms, fecal coliforming and fecal streptococci.

Removal of faecal bacteria and nutrients from domestic wastewater in a horizontal surface flow wetland vegetated with Echinochloa pyramidalis

The aim of this study was to evaluate the removal of faecal bacteria and nutrients from domestic wastewater, in surface flow wetlands vegetated with Echinochloa pyramidalis. Horizontal surface flow

Constructed wetland performance and potential for microbial removal

Wastewater treatment plants serving low flows require special attention in many countries, where a significant part of the total population lives in small agglomerations. This may be especially

Effluent quality performance of horizontal subsurface flow constructed wetlands using natural zeolite (escott)

The objective of the present study was to assess the simultaneous removal of physiochemical parameters in moderate strength wastewater using a lab scale horizontal subsurface flow constructed wetland



Treatment of Domestic Wastewater by Three Plant Species in Constructed Wetlands

Three common Appalachian plant species (Juncus effusus L., Scirpus validus L., and Typha latifolia L.) were planted into small-scale constructed wetlands receivingprimary treated wastewater. The

Utilization of created wetlands to upgrade small municipal wastewater treatment systems

Created wetlands offer a low cost, low maintenance, and practical alternative for upgrading secondary municipal wastewater treatment systems. The removal efficiencies, effects of seasonal temperature

The results show that SF constructed wetlands can be effective for reducing enteric pathogens in swine wastewater and that greater removals can be achieved using SSF designs and lower TKN loading rates.

Fate of viruses in artificial wetlands

Seeded MS2 bacteriophage and seeded poliovirus were removed more efficiently than were the indigenous bacteriaphages, reflecting the enhanced capacity for filtration or adsorption of viruses by the root-substrate complex (and associated biofilm).

Analysis of Residential Subsurface Flow Constructed Wetlands Performance in Northern Alabama

Constructed wetlands are becoming increasingly popular as an alternative onsite wastewater treatment technology in many areas of the U.S. This paper documents a sample collection study and
