Constructed Wetland for Wastewater Treatment

Conventional wastewater treatment plants involve large capital investments and operating costs. In developing countries most of these systems fail because of high energy and maintenance costs. Constructed wetlands are low-cost alternative for treatment of wastewater especially for those areas where land availability is not a problem. They are simple to build, easy to maintain and operate, and have relatively low energy requirements.

A pilot-scale constructed wetland (CW) has been built at NED University. Treatment performance of this CW is being evaluated for various physical, chemical and microbiological parameters under local climatic conditions.
