Subsurface horizontal flow reed beds are being evaluated for Nitrogen (N) and Phosphorus (P) removal from plant nursery runoff water in New South Wales Australia. The need to include plants (Phragmites australis), the effect of reaction time (3.5 v 7.0 d) and dissolved organic carbon (DOC) on N and P removal in batch fed gravel wetland tubs (55 L) was studied over 19 months. Simulated nursery runoff water containing N (10.1 mg L(-1), 74% as NO3) and P (0.58 mg L(-1), 88% as PO4) and DOC (2-5 mg… CONTINUE READING
