Constructed wetlands are complex systems that have raised interest in the scientific community for many years now. Therefore, a more generic approach to the removal efficiency of these systems could possibly shed more light in the ''black box'' that is constructed wetlands. The objective of this paper is to contribute to the efforts of KWR for the development of a knowledge base for pathogen removal through constructed wetlands. In order to do that, a complete dataset with all the necessary information regarding pathogen removal will be created first. Furthermore, this dataset can be incorporated into the treatment calculator by the means of a predictive model. The model will give log removal values of pathogens based on specific parameters. Therefore, in order to cover the knowledge gap, the research question can be described as: ’’Quantifying the log reduction of pathogenic microorganisms by constructed wetlands as a basis for Quantitative Microbial Risk Assessment (QMRA) of water reuse applications’’.

To support researchers to publish their research Open Access, deals have been negotiated with various publishers. Depending on the deal, a discount is provided for the author on the Article Processing Charges that need to be paid by the author to publish an article Open Access. A discount of 100% means that (after approval) the author does not have to pay Article Processing Charges.
For the approval of an Open Access deal for an article, the corresponding author of this article must be affiliated with Wageningen University & Research.
