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


Big Sky, Montana, USA | August 21-25, 2017
Wetland Pollutant Dynamics and Control (WETPOL)

The 7th International Symposium for Wetland Pollutant Dynamics and Control (WETPOL) will be held August 21-25, 2017 at the Big Sky Resort, Montana, USA. 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 committees here.

WETPOL 2017 will bring together 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 2017 is being held in the USA for the first time.  This international event will create unique opportunities for attendees to participate on an international platform as well as to enhance exchange and collaboration between scientists and industry.  A new location means new opportunities for both international and domestic participants.

WETPOL 2017 will present the latest advances in the field of pollution control and diffusion in natural and constructed wetlands.
