    Samenvatting

    Constructed wetlands are one type of Sustainable Urban Drainage System (SUDS) that have been used for decades in The Netherlands. They provide stormwater conveyance and improve stormwater quality. European regulations for water quality dictate lower and lower concentrations for an array of dissolved pollutants. The increase in the required removal efficiency for these systems imposed in the Netherlands requires a better understanding of the
    characteristics of stormwater and the functioning of constructed wetlands as SUDs. This paper presents a brief overview of 5 different constructed wetlands from the Netherlands that have been implemented at least more than 10 years ago. Their efficiency and functioning is reviewed and a new method of assessment is described.
