Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Most sustainable wastewater treatment systems comprise novel combinations of traditional and new system components that mimic and work with nature. These systems will both protect public health and safety and will restore natural and human landscapes.
Wetlands to treat wastewater are getting more and more accepted not just as tertiary treatment technology for polishing purposes, but also for secondary treatment of, for example, domestic wastewater. Moreover, wetlands are also used for storm water and some industrial waters. There is now a timely need for a special issue to summarize the latest state-of-the art to guide academics and practitioners.
Therefore, I would like to call for papers to disseminate and share findings on wetlands used to treat wastewater. Papers are selected by a rigorous peer review procedure with the aim of rapid and wide dissemination of research results, development and application in the wider area of sustainable wastewater treatment systems. Original research papers or critical reviews are invited.
