These notes wereprepared for the CSIRO Urban Water Systems Research Program Scoping Workshop, Adelaide, March 1993. Features of various types of wetlands are described including: natural systems; constructed wetlands with floating or emergent plants; sewage lagoons; buffer strips and vegetated waterways; Urbanlakes and gross pollutant traps; and a levee system to divert a whole river system. The potential functions of wetlands in controlling flow regime and improving water quality are listed. Integration with other methods of treatment and storage, methods of testing performance and key research onthese issues are also briefly discussed
