Abstract

To extend the application of stormwater biofilters (known also as bioretention systems or raingarden) under varied climate conditions, the concept of dual-mode biofilters (i.e., a biofilter that treats two sources of water) has recently emerged. However, studies of these systems have been limited to the laboratory-scale, and validation of the new concept at the field-scale is paramount. This paper presents results from the first field study on two full-scale dual-mode biofilters that operate under different climate conditions and operational regimes. The first, a dual-mode stormwater-greywater biofilter located in Jurong, China, received stormwater and greywater in various combinations. The ..
