About this title

Synopsis:

Wetlands for Water Pollution Control, Second Edition, covers the fundamental science and engineering principles relevant to the drainage and treatment of both storm and wastewater. Standard and novel design recommendations for predominantly constructed wetlands and related sustainable drainage systems are also provided to account for the interests of professional engineers and environmental scientists.

This revised edition deals with the design, operation, maintenance, and water quality monitoring of traditional and novel wetland systems, but also provides information on the analysis of asset performance and modeling of treatment processes, along with performances of existing infrastructures in predominantly developed, but also developing countries, and the sustainability and economic issues involved.

This new edition contains 10 new chapters, along with multidisciplinary, experimental, and modeling-orientated case study topics that include natural wetlands, constructed treatment wetlands for pollution control, sustainable drainage systems, and specific applications, such as wetlands treating hydrocarbon and ammonia, as well as ecological sanitation systems recycling treated.



  • Contains a broad overview of water and environmental engineering aspects relevant for the drainage and treatment of storm water and wastewater, respectively
  • Includes standard and novel design, operation, monitoring and maintenance recommendations for predominantly constructed wetlands and related sustainable drainage systems
  • Provides detailed solutions to pressing water quality challenges associated with constructed treatment wetlands, integrated constructed wetlands, sustainable flood retention basins, farm constructed wetlands and storm water ponds, and other sustainable biological filtration and treatment technologies linked to public health engineering

Review:

"The volume would make an excellent textbook for students, scholars and professionals as it deals with all issues related to the design, operation, maintenance, water quality monitoring, asset performance, modeling and economics of traditional and novel wetland systems...the author’s extensive experience on relevant scientific topics has ensured an authoritative work of excellent quality." --Environmental Processes

"The book is the second edition of Wetland Systems to Control Urban Runoff written by Professor Miklas Scholz and published by Elsevier (2006). It is comprehensive, up-to-date, carefully structured and well-written. This edition attempts to cover all aspects of the designs and operations of wetland systems and is one of the most in-depth textbooks of wetland systems published so far." --Ebrahem M. Eid, Associate Professor, Kafr El-Sheikh University
