This examine, performed 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 meals. BOD and phenols relief charges are pronounced for the 1st time. layout parameters and instructions for the set-up and upkeep of a full-scale wetland are advised. The learn concludes that integrating a full-scale wetland, as a tertiary level with the prevailing remedy ponds may considerably increase the standard of water in River Nzoia downstream of the effluent discharge.
This is a precious source booklet for scientists, managers and scholars within the box of wetland ecology, water and environmental management.
