This learn, carried out in Kenya, offers the 1st perception into the functionality of a built therapy wetland receiving pulp and paper mill wastewater within the tropics.
The wetland successfully got rid of natural subject, suspended solids, phenols and foodstuff. BOD and phenols aid charges are suggested for the 1st time. layout parameters and directions for the set-up and upkeep of a full-scale wetland are advised. The examine concludes that integrating a full-scale wetland, as a tertiary degree with the prevailing remedy ponds may considerably increase the standard of water in River Nzoia downstream of the effluent discharge.
This is a useful source ebook for scientists, managers and scholars within the box of wetland ecology, water and environmental management.
