For 50 people the reed bed area could fall to 1m² per person. The area is based on around litres of sewage per person per day. Reed beds (vertical flow subsurface constructed wetlands) are the most significant advance in water and sludge treatment since the activated sludge process was first used over a century ago.

The activated sludge process represents the single most important innovation in wastewater treatment since Reed beds are engineered systems that provide water treatment using a passive and biologically-mediated process. The use of these passive wetlands for wastewater treatment and recycling offers incredible value in terms of the dual use of space allowed – attractive, landscaped greening and cooling zones which facilitate natural and sustainable.

Reed beds are natural habitats found in floodplains, waterlogged depressions, and beds are part of a succession from young reeds colonising open water or wet ground through a gradation of increasingly dry ground.
