The paper deals with constructed wetlands and their role in treatment of wastewater. Following which the idea of how or rather why not can a natural wetland be integrated into the treatment infrastructure is discussed citing the various challenges that may come up when trying to put into action such a system and certain possible solutions that can be tried. This still being at the concept stage, lots more research into the finer details need to be done before such a concept can actually materialize.
