This examine, performed in Kenya, supplies the 1st perception into the functionality of a built remedy wetland receiving pulp and paper mill wastewater within the tropics.
The wetland successfully got rid of natural topic, suspended solids, phenols and food. BOD and phenols aid premiums are pronounced for the 1st time. layout parameters and instructions for the set-up and upkeep of a full-scale wetland are advised. The research concludes that integrating a full-scale wetland, as a tertiary degree with the present remedy ponds could considerably enhance the standard of water in River Nzoia downstream of the effluent discharge.
This is a beneficial source publication for scientists, managers and scholars within the box of wetland ecology, water and environmental management.
