Wetlands have been used for uncontrolled wastewater disposal for centuries. However, the change in attitude towards wetlands during the 1950s and 1960s caused the minimization of the use of natural wetlands for wastewater treatment (at least in developed countries). Constructed wetlands have been used for wastewater treatment for about forty years. Constructed wetland treatment systems are engineered systems that have been designed and constructed to utilize the natural processes for removal of pollutants. They are designed to take advantage of many of the same processes that occur in natural wetlands, but do so within a more controlled environment. The aim of this book is to summarize the knowledge on horizontal s- surface flow constructed wetlands (HF CWs) and objectively evaluate their treatment efficiency under various conditions. The information on this type of wastewater treatment technology is scattered in many publications but a comprehensive summary based on world-wide experience has been lacking. The book provides an extensive overview of this treatment technology around the world, including examples from more than 50 countries and examples of various types of wastewater treated in HF CWs.

Selected proceedings of the 7th International Conference on Wetland Systems for Water Pollution Control, held in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, USA, 11-16 November 2000. Wetlands are now considered as a widely applicable low-cost alternative for treating municipal, industrial and agricultural effluents. Increasing numbers of wetland projects have come into operation over the last decade, notably those in Florida. IWA's 7th Wetlands conference provided a forum for the synthesis and interpretation of the current status of treatment wetlands. The conference reflected the interdisciplinary nature of the topic, with a diversity of delegates from scientific and engineering disciplines contributing. It addressed research information on current understanding of treatment wetlands, and the need to transfer basic research information to managers involved in solving applied problems; and identified future directions for design and management of treatment wetlands. From a very large programme (of over 200 oral and poster presentations), 86 papers have been selected for these proceedings. As well as authoritative keynote presentations, there are papers on: phosphorus removal and transformations; nitrogen removal and transformations; pathogen removal; optimisation and modelling; ecological considerations; subsurface flow wetlands; surface flow wetlands; industrial wastewaters; agricultural wastewaters; and stormwater. They constitute an outstanding summary of our current knowledge of wetland systems in management of the water environment.

Proceedings of the International Conference on Wetland Systems for Water Pollution Control, held in Brazil, 27 September - 2 October 1998. It is increasingly recognised that wetland systems can play a significant role in protection of the water environment. Where once their main attraction was a perceived 'green' character, now constructed wetlands are chosen to provide cost-effective and efficient wastewater treatment - in municipal and industrial applications - that matches up to regulatory requirements. The forty-five papers in these proceedings have been selected from those presented at the highly successful 6th International Conference on Wetland Systems for Water Pollution Control. Six papers are invited keynote addresses, which review aspects of wetland systems from an authoritative and up-to-date perspective. The remaining papers are divided into the following themes: Industrial Wastewaters; Ecology of Microorganisms and Natural Systems; Wetland Processes; Combined Systems; Role of Plants; Design of Wetlands; Wetland Hydraulics; Hospital Wastewaters; and Stormwater and Runoff.

At present, constructed wetlands for wastewater treatment are a widely used technology for treatment of various types of wastewaters. The International Water Association (then International Association on Water Pollution Research and Control) recognized wetlands as useful tools for wastewater treatment and est- lished the series of biennial conferences on the use of wetland systems for water pollution control in 1988. In about 1993, we decided to organize a workshop on nutrient cycling in natural and constructed wetlands with the major idea to bring together researchers working on constructed and also natural wetlands. It was not our intention to compete with IWA conferences, but the workshop should rather complement the series on treatment wetlands by IWA. We believed that the exchange of information obtained from natural and constructed wetlands would be beneficial for all participants. And the time showed that we were correct. The first workshop took place in 1995 at T?ebo? in South Bohemia and most of the papers dealt with constructed wetlands. Over the years we extended the topics on natural wetlands (such as role of wetlands in the landscape or wetland restoration and creation) and during the 6th workshop held at T?ebo? from May 30 to June 3, 2006, nearly half of 38 papers presented during the workshop dealt with natural wetlands. This workshop was attended by 39 participants from 19 countries from Europe, Asia, North and South Americas and Australia. The volume contains 29 peer-reviewed papers out of 38 papers which were presented during the workshop.

Swamps and marshes once covered vast stretches of the North American landscape. The destruction of these habitats, long seen as wastelands that harbored deadly disease, accelerated in the twentieth century. Today, the majority of the original wetlands in the US have vanished, transformed into farm fields or buried under city streets. In The Marsh Builders, Sharon Levy delves into the intertwined histories of wetlands loss and water pollution. The book's springboard is the tale of a years-long citizen uprising in Humboldt County, California, which led to the creation of one of the first U.S. wetlands designed to treat city sewage. The book explores the global roots of this local story: the cholera epidemics that plagued nineteenth-century Europe; the researchers who invented modern sewage treatment after bumbling across the insight that microbes break down pollutants in water; the discovery that wetlands act as efficient filters for the pollutants unleashed by modern humanity. More than forty years after the passage of the Clean Water Act launched a nation-wide effort to rescue lakes, rivers and estuaries fouled with human and industrial waste, the need for revived wetlands is more urgent than ever. Waters from Lake Erie and Chesapeake Bay to China's Lake Taihu are tainted with an overload of nutrients carried in runoff from farms and cities, creating underwater dead zones and triggering algal blooms that release toxins into drinking water sources used by millions of people. As the planet warms, scientists are beginning to design wetlands that can shield coastal cities from rising seas. Revived wetlands hold great promise for healing the world's waters.
