Constructed Wetlands (8 Hour)
This unit evaluates the use of constructed wetlands (CW) in the
treatment of municipal and industrial wastewaters,
partially-treated effluents, run-off water and sludges. Following a
review of the relevant legislative and regulatory framework
associated with the discharge of treated effluents it considers the
typical design criteria used for horizontal flow, vertical flow and
other forms of constructed wetlands, together with their
construction and commissioning, whether as new build or retro-fit.
In addition, a series of case studies are used to explore the
operation, performance, treatment efficiency and ultimate
renewal/replacement procedure of a variety of CWs operating under
different conditions, with different types of influent, in
different locations. The unit evaluates the applicability, benefits
and limitations of CWs as a treatment technology together with the
impact on carbon footprint when using this sustainable wastewater
and sludge treatment technology.
