Wetland Case Studies

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter comprises six sections providing an overview of various representative and timely wetland case studies. The focus is on the treatment of domestic wastewater, farmyard runoff, swine wastewater, wood storage site runoff, and produced water containing hydrocarbons. Section 2.1 covers integrated constructed wetlands (ICW) for treating domestic wastewater. Section 2.2 provides guidelines for farmyard runoff treatment with farm constructed wetlands (FCW), a sub-type of ICW. Moreover, Section 2.3 covers a representative FCW case study on farmyard runoff treatment, and Section 2.4 describes ICW treating swine wastewater. Section 2.5 reviews wetlands controlling runoff from wood storage sites. Finally, Section 2.6 comprises a study reporting on wetlands for the treatment of hydrocarbons. All sections look at wetland systems from a holistic perspective, highlighting recent research findings relevant for practitioners. This chapter does not cover wetland systems such as sustainable (urban) drainage systems and sustainable flood retention basins used predominantly for flood control purposes. These techniques are discussed in detail in Chapter 4.
