Evaluation and optimization of floating aquatic treatment wetlands for phytoremediation
pre-treatment of municipal landfill leachate employing saline-tolerant plants natural
to South Florida
This study explores a low-cost, low-maintenance, floating wetland treatment system
that has the potential to passively treat leachate in ponds, reducing inorganic nitrogen
and COD loading before discharge to POTW. The end goal of this research is to provide
design criteria for floating treatment wetlands so that landfill managers can reduce
leachate management costs by pre-treating their leachate using this type of system.
