Overview

Constructed wetlands are proving to be the best natural treatment syst em for landfill leachates. Most of the contaminants in landfill leach ates are degraded in treatment wetlands. Potential for long-term susta inability and significant cost savings are attractive features of this eco-technology. Documentation of the experience in this use of const ructed wetlands has been limited. Constructed Wetlands for the Treatme nt of Landfill Leachates is the first compilation of the results of re search from North America and Europe. Originally presented at an inter national symposium, this collection of papers offers the most recent r esearch findings from the leading researchers in this new and innovati ve natural treatment system.
