    NITROGEN AND PHOSPHORUS REMOVAL IN SUBSTRATE-FREE PILOT CONSTRUCTED WETLANDS WITH HORIZONTAL SURFACE FLOW IN UGANDA JOSEPH KYAMBADDE1, 2∗, FRANK KANSIIME1 and GUNNEL DALHAMMAR 1Makerere University Institute of Environment and Natural Resources, P.O. Box , Kampala, Uganda; 2Department of Biotechnology, Royal Institute of . This book introduces the 3R concept applied to wastewater treatment and resource recovery under a double perspective. Firstly, it deals with innovative technologies leading to: Reducing energy requirements, space and impacts; Reusing water and sludge of sufficient quality; and Recovering resources such as energy, nutrients, metals and chemicals, including biopolymers.

    This case study is about a constructed wetland system for wastewater treatment and reuse in the SOS children’s village in Sauk, a suburb in the South of Tirana, Albania, constructed in In the village 70 children live permanently with their „mothers“ and „aunts“. This study evaluated the effectiveness of a constructed rhizofiltration system in the removal of heavy metals and enteric pathogens from municipal wastewater. The study was conducted at an eThekwini municipal wastewater treatment plant in Kingsburgh - Durban in the province of KwaZulu-Natal. The pilot .

      The study reported in the present paper is the result of an attempt to use this technology to demonstrate to the authorities in charge of municipalities in less developed countries that the use of treatment wetland could be one of the most viable alternatives for municipal wastewater and stormwater management. • Wastewater mainly generated in Uganda is Domestic and Municipal waste • About million m 3 /year of wastewater is generated (Dominant wastewater treatment is the primary type) and about half in Kampala only • On average only about 2% of the people in 22 towns have access to sewerage systems.

This study investigates the use of constructed wetlands as a cheaper and more effective alternative method of treating domestic wastewater in tropical environments. This book determines the technical viability of the model, with respect to treatment performance under different operating conditions and the economic competitiveness of technology in Uganda and across the region.

The Pilot. The Pilot Constructed Wetland investigated in this study was situated at the National Water and Swerage Corporation's Jinja Sewage Works at Kirinya, Uganda. The study revealed the economic viability of constructed wetland systems in the tropical regions.

Information on wetland function in waste water treatment is very important as the information can be used to detect undesirable qualities of water. The aim of the study was to assess the effectiveness of natural wetlands in the treatment of waste water. The study was carried out for a period of four months (November to February ).

The use of constructed wetlands to control stormwater flows and quality is a recent applica-tion of the technology and the number of such systems is increasing rapidly. The treatment of wastewater or stormwater by constructed wetlands can be a low-cost, low-energy process requiring minimal operational attention.

As a result of both extensive. Constructed wetland (CW) systems are engineered systems that have been designed and constructed to mimic natural wetland systems. They can serve as primary, secondary or tertiary water treatment systems (Yalcuk et al. ).CWs can be categorized into surface flow (SF), and subsurface flow systems based on water flow regime (Vymazal ; Yalcuk et al.

; Saeed & Sun ). A pilot constructed wetland design, based on horizontal flow criteria and receiving pre-settled sewage from the Jinja Kirinya Sewage anaerobic lagoons was used in the study.

The wetland had a total surface area of m2, which was sub-divided into eight individual units. A pilot scale vertical flow constructed wetland unit (VFCW) with a surface area of m 2 was built within the vicinity of a wastewater treatment plant, North Cairo, Egypt.

The wetland unit was planted with three kinds of plants namely; Canna, Phragmites australis and Cyprus wetland unit was fed with primary treated municipal wastewater at influent flow rate of.

Constructed wetlands are the man-made system that mimics the function and structures of natural wetland and manipulated for wastewater treatment. The aim of the present study is to investigate the feasibility of using the small scale constructed wetland (CW) that is integrated with six species of plants to treat municipal wastewater in a hotel.A pilot scale constructed wetland was setup for the studies of removal efficiency of nitrogen from treated municipal wastewater using various filter media and a macrophyte.

For the current research work pulverized fly ash bricks, shale and gravel media were used and a macrophyte Phragmites was chosen to find out the removal efficiency with various filter media.Vertical flow constructed wetlands for wastewater and sludge treatment represent a relatively new and still growing technology.
