The objective of this study lies in exploring a long term restoration of the aquatic ecosystem in Chinese city lakes using treatment wetland, an environmentally friendly and cost-effective technology. Trials from a subsurface horizontal flow constructed wetland (CW) have demonstrated that the treatment wetland can be used for such kind of purpose of lake water quality control. Average removal of 84.2% for COD, 53.8% for NH3-N, 47.9% for TN, 73.3% for TP and 86.6% for SS can be achieved. Relatively, low removal of nitrogen lies in the lack of nitrification and denitrification process. Accordingly, improved configuration of the treatment wetland system has been proposed and discussed. Finally, the importance of the integrated constructed wetland especially for the application of urban lake water treatment is highlighted.||Funding Details:||Not applicable||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Taylor & Francis||Journal:||Journal of Environmental Science and Health, Part A||Volume:||46||Issue:||7||Start page:||795||End page:||799||Copyright (published version):||Taylor & Francis Group, LLC||Keywords:||Constructed wetland; Urban lake; Wastewater treatment||Subject LCSH:||Constructed wetlands--China--Xi’an Shi
