Long description: Passive in situ remediation of contaminated effluents offers a ‘low cost’ management opportunity to remediate drainages to the standards required by enforcement agencies. However, the initial cost of construction of passive treatment systems is significant and often in excess of those for active treatment systems. It is therefore important that the engineering design of the passive systems produces an effective and efficient scheme to enable the construction and maintenance costs to be minimised as a far as possible. Passive treatment systems include aeration systems, sedimentation ponds, aerobic & anaerobic wetlands, ALDs, RAPS and wet/dry covers. Most active treatment systems also include passive elements in the treatment stream. The basic design considerations that should be considered to ensure the construction of efficient systems are discussed.
