a good example from Germany!

a new publication on constructed wetland:

Technology Review | Constructed wetlands
Overview of subsurface flow constructed wetlands for greywater and domestic wastewater t reatment in developing countries.

From the foreword:

"This publication is an important contribution of the GTZ program “Sustainable sanitation – ecosan” towards the topic of constructed wetlands in developing countries as it provides valuable guidance on using this technology in developing countries for domestic wastewater treatment. The program is commissioned by the German Federal
Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). 
The ecological sanitation (ecosan) approach is able to address both: child health which needs to be improved through better household sanitation and  wastewater treatment, and sustainable management and safe recycling".

A very beautiful and interesting publication that reports a lot of examples, a  complete summary on wetland treatment systems and the best pre.treament, and a full bibliography.!!!
