Abstract

This paper discusses the different wetland processes which could be used to improve stormwater quality and reviews currently published guidelines on the design of wetlands. The review found current practices in wetland design, particularly in relation to the required hydrodynamic performance of wetlands, primarily based on experiences from wastewater treatment. Guidelines for proper design and utilization of wetlands for stormwater treatment have been ad-hoc and are not well defined.
