Abstract

Polluted river is a primary problem occurred in Changhua County, Taiwan because of rapid and massive developments of agriculture and industry. Water sample belongs to the water exhausted from influent of Yangzi-Cuo river, ci-tong jiao, Changhua County, and ecology technologies, which combined with gravel contact oxidation and surface flow constructed wetlands, are employed to enhance the water quality. Ecology technology is a useful and ordinary process which focuses on original treatment of pollution through chemical, physical, and biological procedures based on the mediums of soil, plant, water, and microorganism from pure environment. Moreover, this study aims on minimizing river pollution index (RPI) of Yangzi-Cuo river by using combinations of gravel contact oxidation and surface flow constructed wetlands. The inflow volume of water sample in suit is measured as 1,534-2,261 cubic meters per day (CMD). The major pollution in water sample involves of suspended solid (SS), ammoniacal nitrogen (NH3-N), total phosphorus (TP), total nitrogen (TN), and biochemical oxygen demand (BOD), and the values of above indexes is ranged as 10.0-26.7 mg/L, 0.9-14.0 mg/L, 1.2-14.1 mg/L, 11.1-18.2 mg/L, and 0.5-3.6 mg/L, respectively. Efficiencies of pollution elimination on SS, NH3-N, TP, TN, and BOD were depicted as 24.2-93.1%, 58.3-86.2%, 5.2-85.0%, 59.4-77.2%, and 46.3-76.4%, correspondingly, after purification treatment of ecology technology. As the result, ecology technology is benefit for the purification treatment of polluted river.
