About this book
Wetland Systems to Control Urban Runoff integrates natural and constructed wetlands, and sustainable drainage techniques into traditional water and wastewater systems used to treat surface runoff and associated diffuse pollution. The first part of the text introduces the fundamentals of water quality management, and water and wastewater treatment. The remaining focus of the text is on reviewing treatment technologies, disinfection issues, sludge treatment and disposal options, and current case studies related to constructed wetlands applied for runoff and diffuse pollution treatment. Professionals and students will be interested in the detailed design, operation, management, process control and water quality monitoring and applied modeling issues.

This new book, written by IEMA member Miklas Scholz (featured in the environmentalist March 2006), covers the water and environmental engineering essentials relevant to the drainage and treatment of stormwater, wastewater and contaminated water from predominantly urban areas. Based on this 10 years experience in urban water research, Dr. Scholz successfully presents a book appealing to readers with different levels of experience and knowledge, including those less familiar with water quality management, to professions and students interested in design, process and management details. It is recommended as a most useful reference and textbook, combining case studies with the latest research finding in urban water management technology. --Magazine of the IEMA, December 2006
