This research, carried out in Kenya, supplies 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 topic, suspended solids, phenols and food. BOD and phenols relief charges are pronounced for the 1st time. layout parameters and directions for the set-up and upkeep of a full-scale wetland are steered. The learn concludes that integrating a full-scale wetland, as a tertiary level with the present therapy 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.
