We dedicate this book to the memory of Sherwood C. "Woody" Reed. Woody was the inspiration for this book and spent his wastewater engineering career planning, designing, evaluating, reviewing, teaching, and advancing the technology and understanding of natural wastewater treatment systems. Woody was the senior author of Natural Systems for Waste Management and Treatment, published in 1988, which introduced a rational basis for design of free water surface and subsurface flow constructed wetlands, reed beds for sludge treatment, and freezing for sludge dewatering. Woody passed away in 2003.
