Sources and treatment of Campylobacter in stormwater constructed wetlands

posted on 2020-05-28, 00:57 authored by ZE MENG
Stormwater constructed wetlands are one of the most widely used passive stormwater treatment technologies in Australia. They have shown promising results in removal of typical stormwater pollutants such as nutrient and sediments. However, its ability in removing faecal microbial pollutants which might pose potential human health risks remains understudies. This thesis investigated the sources and treatment processes of faecal contamination in wetland systems, by undertaken case studies on two wetlands within the Troups Creek catchments. The findings from this research have the potential to optimise the design and maintenance of wetlands for faecal microbial removal.
