Abstract

This paper discusses how the general efficiency of a natural wastewater treatment system can be classified as being inherently, passively or actively efficient. A new concept, ecosystem manipulation, is described. Rather than providing a specific set of tools and methods, this concept reflects the philosophy of inherent efficiency that should be embedded in the design of natural wastewater treatment or other pollution control systems. Three case studies are presented to illustrate how this concept was instinctively adopted in the past.
