View more graphic details on how the two year study from the University of Calgary was implemented, monitoring the effectiveness of contaminant removal with floating treatment wetlands in the Carseland (Wheatland County) wastewater lagoon.
Test Results Summary of Floating Treatment Wetlands in Wastewater..more (pdf)
The University of Calgary conducted a two year study sponsored by Alberta Environment & Parks and Environment Canada demonstrating that floating treatment wetlands remove naturally and effectively contaminants from a lagoon wastewater facility. In this study the focus is on phosphorus, nitrogen, organic carbon, and suspended solids as well as the change in water temperature, pH, electrical conductivity and dissolved oxygen.

A BioHaven Floating Island Is Tested In A Harsh Marine Environment Off The Coast Of SE Alaska…more (pdf)
BioHaven modules were launched at Elfin Cove, AK, to study the effect of salt water on plants, to find out what biota would colonize the islands and see how the islands would hold up to the forces of Nature in a marine environment. After a whole winter in the water, the island maintained its buoyancy and structure, and the perennial plants came back in the spring.
Highly efficient Bubble Tubing optimizes oxygen transfer and lifts water which aids in complete circulation throughout the water column. As Bubble Tubing® functions without moving parts or electricity in the water, it increases performance efficiency while significantly reducing electrical and maintenance costs in comparison to other aeration systems.
