Constructed wetland systems are a low-cost, low-energy-consumption and effective technology for water pollution control used increasingly in recent years in China. In this paper, the land treatment systems in China are introduced, the constructed wetland systems in North China are detailed, and the integrated reed bed wetland-lagoon system, as an advanced constructed wetland system, is compared with other land treatment systems. Lastly, the authors elaborate their opinion on problem “wetlands occupy larger lands” and energetically advocate to develop this new land treatment technique in China.
