The merits of constructed wetlands are ecosystem protection, water quality enhancement, and wastewater treatment. Campus wastewater treatment effluent was studied in this research. Nutrients and organic matters have demonstrated effectively via sedmentation, microbio-degradation, and plant uptake. SS, COD, DO, NH4+, NO3-N were also researched. Total Nitrogen, total Phosphorus, Ammonium Nitrogen removal rate was 84.1%, 47.9%, and 84.6%, respectively. The microbial genetic monitoring results showed Salmonella spp. and Listeria monocytogenes were not existed in soil and sediment. Acrophytes harvesting and sediments dredging are the promising approaches to remove nutrients and organic matters in this studied constructed wetland .
