Organic matter composition, microbial biomass and microbial activity in gravel-bed constructed wetlands treating farm dairy wastewaters

Organic matter composition, microbial biomass and microbial activity in gravel-bed constructed wetlands treating farm dairy wastewaters

Ecological Engineering 16(2): 199-221

Organic matter (OM) composition, microbial biomass and microbial activity in a planted (Schoenoplectus tabernaemontani), gravel-bed wetland in Hamilton, New Zealand receiving cumulative OM (determined as volatile suspended solids) loadings over 5 years from farm dairy wastewater (8.2 kg OM m-2) and in situ plant residues (8.4 kg OM M-2) were investigated.
