About this book

This book presents state-of-the-art information on the use of constructed wetlands for improving water quality. It features contributions from prominent scientists and provides several important case studies. Topics covered include: design and treatment of waste water; natural designs in waste water treatment; water conservation and groundwater protection; waste and potable water issues; treatment of agricultural waste and run-off; treatment of hazardous waste run-off; treatment of domestic and industrial waste water; treatment of acid mine leachate; treatment of landfill leachate; constructed wetlands as wildlife habitats; and treatment of industrial waste.
