The seminar will summarise the research activities conducted in Southern and Central Italy over the past ten years about the use of natural systems (mainly wetlands) to treat urban and agricultural wastewater, also for irrigation purposes. The main topics addressed will be: pollutant and pathogen removal  (by single and combined systems), wetland hydrology (evapotranspiration), wetland hydraulics (hydraulic conductivity, tracer tests, clogging), and irrigation of energy and food crops with treated wastewater.
