A GIS-based score system for siting and sizing of created or restored wetlands: two case studies



A GIS-based score system for siting and sizing of created or restored wetlands: two case studies



Water Resources Management 16(4): 307-328



Water bodies are impacted by watershed loads in terms of nutrients and xenobiotics. This impact impairs the designated uses of the water body. Often preventive actions and end-of-pipe treatments do not reach the acceptable load to ensure the water quality standard in the water body. Wetlands are suitable tools for improving the self-purification capacity of a water system and can be used as a tool to reduce pollutant loads in a river network.
