Common reeds, cattails, and bulrushes. , 1998). For this reason, CWs are also called “reed beds” (Vymazal, 2001). For example, Danish guidelines for VFCWs construction include the use of common reeds (Brix and Arias, 2005). It is also reported that P. 1 Cluster of common reeds (Phragmites australis).

In this way, the bed aeration is enhanced and the microbial activity is stimulated (Cooper, 1999; Vymazal, 2007). , 2006; Vymazal, 2007; Kadlec and Wallace, 2009). , 2007a; Vymazal, 2007).

At the initial applications of the CW technology, focus was given on the other CW types, since VFCWs generally possess higher operation cost. The gradual increase in the use of VFCWs was a result of the realization that HSF systems possess relatively low oxygen transfer capacity (OTC) for the demands of a secondary treatment, which respectively limits the ammonia nitrogen (NH4+-N) oxidizing capacity (Cooper, 1999).
