This Guidance Manual was produced to provide up to date information on the design, costs, construction, operation and maintenance of constructed wetlands used for the treatment of highway runoff. Information is provided on the different types of wetlands and their mode of operation, the design and planting of a wetland system and the retrofitting of treatment structures, the performance and costs of wetlands and their operation and maintenance requirements. The benefits of wetlands in encouraging wildlife and improving the landscape are discussed. The implementation of Sustainable Drainage systems (SuDS) and the use of decision support approaches for selecting SuDS systems are considered. Recommendations are made for future research.
