This study reveals that large areas in Kenya are suitable for constructed wetland establishment are mostly located around the fertile agricultural areas where most of Kenya‘s population lives. Taking into account the tropical climate of Kenya which is characterized by high temperatures and conducive weather all year round, sub surface flow systems have been identified as the constructed wetlands of choice. Six emergents of the species Typha, Phragmites and Poaceae have been identified as showing high biomass productivity and versatility in utilization options, thus a high potential for waste water treatment.
