The last five years have seen rapidly growing interest in the use of hydrophyte-based systems for treating sewage, mining and industrial wastewater. The potential of reed beds and similar wetland systems for providing cost-effective treatment for small, and often isolated, communities has led to over 400 such systems being operated or tested in Europe alone. This active interest is reflected here in nearly 50 papers and over 20 poster papers on all aspects of wetland systems: basic principles, nutrient removal, treatment of sewage, sludge, agricultural, industrial and mining wastes, systems for small populations, and specific design guidelines. This volume includes reports of practical experience and the latest research results from Australasia, South Africa, North America, China and Europe, and provides an essential guide to one of the most promising water pollution control options.
