Control EDSS-Maintenance prototype. An Environmental Decision Support System to assess the definition of operation and maintenance protocol for horizontal subsurface constructed wetlands.

Horizontal Subsurface Constructed Wetlands (HSCW) is an appropriate technology to treat wastewater coming from small communities. Despite HSCW is considered a natural technology, operation and maintenance are crucial to guarantee their performance. These necessities vary according to (1) the characteristics of the community, (2) the wastewater treatment plant configuration and the HSCW design and (3) the characteristics of the receiving media. In this sense, the this thesis presents the development of an Environmental Decision Support System (EDSS) to asses the definition of operation and maintenance protocols for HSCW taking into account the aspects that cause variability among these facilities (1, 2 and 3).
