<emphasis role="bold">FLOATING AQUATIC PLANT SYSTEMS</emphasis>Floating aquatic plants have been used for wastewater treatment in several processes, including upgrading facultative pond effluent. In this case, the plants can achieve degrees of advanced wastewater treatment depending on loading and management. Water hyacinths and duckweed are the most studied and used floating plants.The concept of using floating aquatic plants in wastewater treatment arose, in part, from an attempt to control suspended solids concentrations in aerobic and facultative pond discharges. The floating plants shield the water from sunlight and reduce t…
