A review of significant contributions of constructed wetlands in wastewater treatment and water recycling processes is presented. The significance of using wetlands for recycling wastewater has increased due to third edition of the World Health Organization (WHO) guideline that requires the safe use of wastewater, excreta, and groundwater in agriculture and acquaculture. Surface-flow constructed wetlands represent an attractive technology for reclaiming treated wastewater as a water supply source for sensitive and multi-sectoral peri-urban wastewater due to its low maintenance costs.
