ABSTRACT

 

During the study period the dye effluent and sewage wastewater were collected and analyzed before and after treatment with constructed wetland system for the water quality parameters i.e. pH, BOD, COD, TDS, TSS, Chloride, Fluoride, Hardness, Alkalinity, Sodium, Potassium, Nitrate, Nitrite, Sulphate, Phosphate, Iron, Copper, Manganese, Nickel, Lead, Cadmium, Arsenic, Chromium. % Reduction for all these parameters was found in the range of 50% - 100% for both of these wastewaters. The Constructed Wetland (CW) is composed of two beds, filled with substrate and planted with Glyceria maxima and Typhalatifolia. A high COD and BOD values were reduced by 86% and 90%, respectively. Results demonstrated that the CW can be appropriate tool for treating waste waters from the processing plants. The results were found better for the retention time of 3 days. In VF CWS moderate to high increase in number of plants were found at the end of the experiment.

 

Keywords : VF CWS, Phytoremediation, COD and BOD.
