Wetlands for Water Treatment and Resource Recovery
July 25, 2016 @ 8:00 am - July 29, 2016 @ 5:00 pm
- Overview of wetlands and their overall role functions and values in and integrated watershed management in various landscapes for sustainable development
- Types of constructed wetland systems for use in various landscapes
- Hydrologic and ecological features of constructed wetlands
- Microbiology of constructed wetlands
- Role of vegetation in constructed wetlands for water treatment
- Biogeochemical features of constructed wetlands
- Design and optimization for using constructed wetlands to treat a wide range of waste waters
- Monitoring and assessment of constructed wetlands for water treatment efficiency
- Case studies of constructed wetlands from the USA
- Case studies of constructed wetlands in developing countries
- Potential uses of biomass produced in constructed wetlands
- Decentralised wastewater treatment as a business model
The course also provide a hands on design opportunity using a theoretical waste water source and several site scenarios to go through a step by step evaluation and design process that will synthesize all of the material learned in this course.
Course instructors are from the University of Florida and ICRISAT with experience in wetland treatment technologies. Their experience includes both foundational and applied science as related the use of wetlands for water treatment and resource recovery.
