    Sustainable Water Treatment and Management covers broad water and environmental engineering aspects relevant to water resources management as well as the treatment of storm water and wastewater. It provides a descriptive overview of complex “black box” systems and related design issues and comprehensively discusses the design, operation, maintenance, as well as water quality monitoring and modelling of traditional and novel wetland systems. Further, it provides an analysis of asset performance, the modeling of treatment processes, and the performance of existing infrastructure in both developed and developing countries as well as the sustainability and economic issues involved. The book serves as a useful reference for all concerned with the built environment, including town planners, developers, engineering technicians, water and agricultural engineers, and public health workers.

    • Presents the latest research findings in wastewater treatment.
    • Includes international case studies and multidisciplinary research projects.
    • Explains treatment options that are applicable to any and all climatic regions.

    Miklas is also the Head of Department for Urban Drainage at the Construction and Service Oberursel, Germany. He is also a Technical Specialist for Nexus by Sweden and a Hydraulic Engineer at Kunststoff-Technik Adams, Germany.


    He has published 9 books and 321 journal articles in 129 different journals. Prof. Scholz has total citations of 15156 (9257 citations since 2019), resulting in an h-index of 60 and an i10-index of 237. He belongs to the top 2% academics regarding the i10-index in the past five years. Miklas also belongs to the World's Top 2% Scientists by Stanford University.


    A bibliometric analysis of all constructed wetland-related publications and corresponding authors with a minimum number of 20 publications and 100 citations indicates that Miklas is on place 5 in the world of about 70 authors (including those who have sadly passed away).


    In 2019, Prof. Scholz was awarded EURO 7M for the EU H2020 REA project Water Retention and Nutrient Recycling in Soils and Streams for Improved Agricultural Production (WATERAGRI). He received EURO 1.52M for the JPI Water 2018 project Research-based Assessment of Integrated approaches to Nature-based SOLUTIONS (RAINSOLUTIONS).
