Cleaning Wastewater with Floating Island Technology
Floating islands that cleanse water naturally.
How They Work
Constructed of durable, non-toxic post-consumer plastics and vegetated with native plants, BioHaven islands float on top of the water, providing a beautiful habitat for birds and animals. But underneath the surface, a dynamic process takes place.
"The “concentrated wetland effect” created by BioHaven® floating islands biomimics the cleansing action of natural wetlands. With added aeration they are very effective at removing pollutants such as nitrates and ammonia, and increasing the dissolved oxygen in a water body. The surface area of the floating island naturally attracts microbes which cleanse the water and turn unwanted nutrients into fish food. This makes them a natural choice for cleaning not only lakes and streams, but also for wastewater lagoons, farm effluent ponds, and any other waterway impacted by sewage or landfill effluent: winery ponds, fish hatcheries, public parks or mines."
