Our Goals

  • Knowledge transfer between different applications of treatment wetland technology
  • Linking science and application of wetland technology
  • Increase acceptance of treatment wetland applications
  • Increase understanding of processes controlling wetland biogeochemistry
  • Cultural exchange

WETPOL Symposium

Aarhus, Denmark | 2019
Wetland Pollutant Dynamics and Control (WETPOL)

The 8th International Symposium for Wetland Pollutant Dynamics and Control (WETPOL) will be held in 2019 in Aarhus, Denmark.   WETPOL is the preeminent global conference bringing together scientists, engineers and practitioners working on the use of wetlands for water quality improvement. To be held in the USA for the first time, this conference will create unique opportunities for collaborative exchange and new participants are encouraged to attend. A full program focused on domestic wastewater treatment wetlands, urban stormwater wetlands and bio-swales, riparian wetland restoration, wetlands in agricultural settings and wetland biogeochemistry is planned. The conference will include one day of field trips to explore examples of constructed, restored and unique natural wetlands and riparian areas in the region.

The WETPOL program is designed by global elite Wetland Professionals interested in advancing the field of pollution control with natural and created wetlands, through knowledge share, collaboration and integration. See the 2017 committees here.

WETPOL  brings together (biennially) 200-250 of the world’s leading experts in wetland systems for water pollution control.

  • Researchers specializing in water quality
  • Researchers specializing in wetlands processes
  • Design engineers focused on water quality remediation
  • Representatives from the water sector (local community, water agencies, etc.);
  • Policy regulators


WETPOL  aims to present the latest advances in the field of pollution control and diffusion in natural and constructed wetlands.
