Abstract Treatment of landfill leachate is challenging due to high concentrations of oxygen-demanding compounds, such as biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) and ammonia nitrogen. The limited oxygen-transfer capability of conventional subsurface flow treatment wetlands has lead to the development of alternative design configurations that improve subsurface oxygen availability. This chapter compares the treatment performance of two aerated subsurface flow constructed wetlands treating landfill leachate against other, non-aerated systems. Results from these pilot studies indicate that aerated subsurface flow treatment wetlands are a viable technology selection for removal of ammonia-nitrogen of landfill leachate.
