please remember that treatment wetlands are a TECHNOLOGY.... Yes, it is a green system, but it is always a technology used to treat polluted wastewaters!
The result of its application are green flowering areas but they are systems built to treat pollution.
I'm a wetland designer, I always use the design formulas to size the plant. For small plants I use empirical formulas but when I have to design winery, swine, agro-industrial wastewaters and heavy polluted waters I sit down on my office and dialogue with my MS Excel design file.
Be professional, your plants will last longer!!!
