Design and construction of plant-covered retention soil filters (RSF)

F. Frechen, W. Schier & J. Felmeden
Massive improvement of municipal wastewater treatment during the last 20 years has reduced the pollution load of our water bodies significantly. At the same time, pollution load resulting from combined sewer overflows (CSO) increased which made appropriate countermeasures necessary. Up to now, this is usually done by introducing combined wastewater basins including sedimentation as a first treatment process which does not affect the soluble substances at all. The only technology that is capable of reducing...
