CWA 12th Annual Conference

When: Oct. 11, 2016 - Oct. 12, 2016

Where: Manchester Town Hall

Developments in Wetland Technologies for control of Wastewater and Diffuse Pollution

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS – Deadline 18th May

Following from our successful collaboration in 2014, this year the Constructed Wetland Association’s 12th annual conference will again run alongside the European Wastewater Management Conference. This will allow participants of both conferences to explore wider issues and developments in the field of pollution control as well as their core interests.

Abstracts will be considered on any topic relating to constructed wetlands, however papers on the following topics are particularly sought:

Control of Diffuse Pollution using wetland ecosystems

Wetland treatment to remove multiple and emerging contaminants

Novel approaches to wetland treatment

Measuring the benefits of restored wetlands and rivers

Wetland ecosystems can process a wide range of waterborne contaminants, and understanding these wetland processes enables us to engineer wetlands to be treatment systems with reliable performance, ecosystem and amenity benefits, and flood mitigation. This year the Constructed Wetland Association is focusing upon the science and practice of measuring and understanding the benefits of wetland systems, including removal of a wide range of contaminants from wastewater, from treating diffuse pollution sources, and from making natural ecosystems more effective at processing waterborne contaminants.

Submission Details

If you would like to contribute to the conference programme please submit the following to Frances: by Wednesday 18th May (extended deadline)

A working title

A concise abstract of approx 150 words that describes the content of your presentation.

Author names, job titles, organisations and contact details

Who Should Attend?

The CWA annual conference has a track record of attracting a good mix of practitioners, academics, regulators and technology users. It would be of interest to practitioners in constructed wetlands; anyone interested in low energy wastewater treatment, professionals working to improve river water quality by tackling diffuse pollution (eg catchment partnerships); regulators and government organisations interested in water framework directive, biodiversity, sustainability or wastewater regulation; academics in the field of wetland engineering or pollution control.
