With floating treatment media it’s all about surface area. Yes, the more surface area there is, the more microbes and bacteria there are to consume the contaminants found in waste and stormwater.
The plant roots in floating wetlands form a special “symbiotic” relationship with bacteria and microbes. Here’s how it works: Microbes and bacteria feed on the sugar and oxygen that the roots excrete. In return, they provide nitrogen, phosphorous
The modules of floating treatment media create a base for plants to grow. As they expand below the water’s surface, the roots of these plants become highly effective for treating waste and stormwater. To follow are three key benefits of floating treatment media.
