Wetland Systems to Control Urban Runoff

TD 756.5 .S36 2006

This is a book about the drainage and treatment of stormwater, wastewater, and urban runoff. Initial chapters speak specifically to water quality standards and treatment. Primarily concerned with the treatment of this contaminated water, this work provides an overview, design, and specifications for performance analysis for these treatment systems. Chapters discuss filtration methods and treatment. Considerable attention is paid to the use of wetlands in these processes and the role of sludge in the purification process. This book is intended for engineers and water scientists.
