Project title:


Nitrogen and Phosphorus Removal and Eutrophication Control in Municipal lakes

Project leader:


Wang Xiaochang


The project aims to solve the problems faced by many cities in China for further improvement of the water environmental quality after engineering measures have been taken to control the major pollutant sources. In order to prevent eutrophication to occur in urban lakes due to excess nitrogen and phosphorus concentrations which often results in deteriorated water landscape, research work is to be conducted for illustrating the relationship between urban lakes and the whole urban water systems so that water quality criteria can be proposed. Other research items include nutrients source control measures, onsite reduction of excess nitrogen and phosphorus, integrated plan for sustainable control of eutrophication and improvement of water landscaping. The project will provide a technological framework to support urban water environmental improvement.
