Book Description

5 Aug 2008

Completely revised and updated, Treatment Wetlands, Second Edition is still the most comprehensive resource available for the planning, design, and operation of wetland treatment systems. The book addresses the design, construction, and operation of wetlands for water pollution control. It presents the best current procedures for sizing these systems, and describing the intrinsic processes that combine to quantify performance.

The Second Edition covers:

  • New methods based on the latest research
  • Wastewater characterization and regulatory framework analyses leading to detailed design and economics
  • State-of-the-art procedures for analyzing hydraulics, hydrology, substrates and wetlands biogeochemistry
  • Definition of performance expectations for traditional pollutants such as solids, oxygen demand, nutrients and pathogens, as well as for metals and a wide variety of individual organic and inorganic chemicals
  • Discussion of methods of configuration, construction, and vegetation establishment and startup considerations
  • Ancillary benefits of human use and wildlife habitat
  • Specific examples of numerous applications
  • Extensive reference base of current information

The book provides a complete reference that includes: detailed information on wetland ecology, design for consistent performance, construction guidance and operational control through effective monitoring. Case histories of operational wetland treatment systems illustrate the variety of design approaches presented allowing you to tailor them to the needs of your wetlands treatment projects. The sheer amount of information found in Treatment Wetlands, Second Edition makes it the resource you will turn to again and again.

"An indispensable resource for both academic libraries and professional consultants." CHOICE --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

From the Publisher

Examines planning,design,construction,operation of wetlands
TREATMENT WETLANDS is the first comprehensive book to systemically describe all aspects of this new technology. Topics include all major wetland configurations, wastewater sources, and combinations of climatic conditions.

This complete reference contains detailed information on wetland ecology, wetland water quality, selection of appropriate technology design for consistent performance, construction guidance, and operational control through effective monitoring. Design approaches that can be tailored to specific wetland treamtment projects are also included. Rule-of-thumb methods, regression-based empirical design approaches, and rational methods are explained facilitating wetland design based on multi-parameter input conditions.


* Includes engineered wetlands for municipal, industrial, and agricultural wastewater treatment

* Provides complete project planning, including comparison of specific wetland technology, site specific studies, permitting considerations, estimated construction and operation costs, and case histories

* Presents a summary of North American wetland treatment system database

* Covers design methods for treatment of biochemical oxygen demand, suspended solids, nitrogren, phosphorous, pathogens, and trace metals --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars no other book like it - good value 13 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
If you've ever seen one of those really old bibles that are massive, it is like that. A4 size and 2 inches thick, and even then they printed right up to the edge of the page. This could have been published as 3 volumes, but it squeezes into one.

It is also very comprehensive. Whereas edition 1 is a good university text (though now out of date) edition 2 is a huge development. Seems to be completely rewritten with different approach, up to date info and more graphs from research and testing. It is THE manual for managing and designing wetlands. Although useful for research and high level university study, this edition it is probably directed towards engineers/chemists/managers/environmental scientists for actual design and practical running of wetlands (with alot of supporting scientific information). I say this because there are lots of equations (empirical and theoretical) for treatment rates based on lots of different variables etc.

Despite the cost, I'd say it is excellent value. It is the bible of treatment wetlands, both figuratively and because of its size!

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive Reference 17 Feb 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
An outstanding volume. Extrememly well organized and comprehensive. Aimed at serious practitioner or professional engineer needing quantitative methods and process understanding. This is more than an engineering design manual - a thorough extremely well organized treatment of treatment wetlands. Restoration scientists and practitioners using simple "permanent pools" in stormwater wetlands will benefit from the wetland science and process engineering organized here into the best current reference available.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Thorough 11 Sep 2009
By Carolina Casaril - Published on Amazon.com
A very very thorough review of all things treatment wetlands. Those searching for help as to what to DO (whether in design or measurement) may find themselves overwhelmed with details. With the ability to select vital information out of this book, it becomes a one-stop-shop for all things wetland to this point.

5.0 out of 5 stars Treatment Wetlands - Second Edition 8 Mar 2010
By Scibona Rosario - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Salve mi chiamo Rosario e ho acquistato Treatment Wetlands per una ricerca sui sistemi di fitodepurazione. Ho usato il libro per la mia tesi (facoltà di Agraria) e lo trovato sicuramente "più che completo". Il libro è composto da poco più di 1000 pagine in formato A4 (quando lo visto mi è preso un colpo, lo avevo immaginato più piccolo)e l'ho ricevuto in circa 10 giorni (anche se Amazon considera come ipotetica data di arrivo i 30 giorni successivi l'acquisto). Un mio docente l'ho aveva definito "il testo sacro della fitodepurazione", aveva ragione!
