Abstract: Dye tracer studies using Rhodamine WT have been performed on two field scale subsurface flow wetland units for further improvement of secondary treated municipal effluent at Byron Bay in N.S.W., Australia. Tracer tests were performed to cover varying hydraulic conditions. Highly variable hydraulic behaviour was encountered arising from various random and systematic causes.
