About this book

The increasing interest in wetland systems for wastewater treatment and the growing maturity of the technology are reflected in these conference proceedings. The 40 papers (selected from over a hundred original submissions) which are included here cover a various aspects of wetlands treatment: fundamental mechanisms and processes; system performances; their use in the treatment of municipal, industrial and agricultural wastewaters, including non-point sources and runoff, and the protection of the natural environment. All serve to demonstrate the utility of wetlands treatment systems.
