Paper Title:
Reversing Clogging in Vertical-Flow Constructed Wetlands by Backwashing Treatment
  Abstract

More and more constructed wetland CW) were used to treat waste water in the world for its advantage on cheaper and efficiency. CW would clog for improper design or imperfect management, so application for it was limited. The purpose of this paper is that using backwashing method resolve filter media clogging problem which is an intractable matter in constructed wetlands project. The effects of the backwashing treatment on pollutant removal, as well as the influence on characteristics of hydraulics of wetlands, were studied. The experimental results indicate that CW hydraulic conductivity, hydraulic resistance time and removal rate of COD increased after backwashing. This paper confirmed that backwashing method can reverse clogging in vertical-flow constructed wetlands, and provided design guidance for applying backwashing method to treat clogging vertical-flow constructed wetlands.
