About this book

Focusing on the potential and use of constructed wetland ecosystems for wastewater treatment in cold climate areas, this book includes further contributions developed from papers presented at a symposium which formed part of the INTECOL '98 World Congress and at the Fourth International Conference on Managing the Wastewater Resource - Ecological Engineering for Wastewater Treatment.


Preface; Chapter 1; Performance of wastewater treatment and nutrient removal wetlands (reedbeds) in cold temperate climates; Chapter 2; Subsurface treatment wetlands in the cold climate of Minnesota; Chapter 3; Constructed wetlands for wastewater treatment in cold climates: planted soil filter schattweid - 13 years' experience; Chapter 4; Design and performance of integrated subsurface flow wetlands in a cold climate; Chapter 5; Plant species effects on seasonal performance patterns in model subsurface wetlands; Chapter 6; Enhanced nitrogen elimination in vertical-flow constructed wetlands in cold climates; Chapter 7; Polish constructed wetland performance and transfer of results into Alpine environment; Chapter 8; The use of engineered wetlands to treat recalcitrant wastewaters; Chapter 9; The application of subsurface flow wetlands in South Africa: from pilot to fullscale; Chapter 10; Designing constructed wetlands to remove phosphorus from barnyard run-off: Seasonal variability in loads and treatment; Chapter 11; Seasonal efficiency of a constructed wetland for treating dairy farm wastewater; Chapter 12; Experience and results from the northernmost constructed wetland in Norway; Chapter 13; Seasonal variation in fecal indicators removal in constructed wetlands with horizontal subsurface flow; Chapter 14; Design of constructed wetlands using phosphorus sorbing lightweight aggregate (LWA); Chapter 15; Nitrogen removal in light-weight aggregate pretreatment filter columns and mesocosm wetlands; Chapter 16; Removal and retention of selected heavy metals in components of a hybrid wetland system; Chapter 17; Enhanced nutrient removal in activated sludge systems - useful lessons for constructed wetlands
