Reedbeds and SUDS
Reedbeds are a proven as well as cost effective technology for the remediation of contaminants such as heavy metals and waste water effluent. Reeds release oxygen through their roots deep into the reedbed which assists microbial action and compound breakdown mainly through the processes of phytoremediation and biosequestration. Following treatment water is often clean enough to be discharged to a watercourse.
For over three decades our principal consultants have been involved in developing many hundreds of the country’s reedbed and constructed wetland projects for a wide range of applications. AquaticConsultancy’ wealth of experience in this field, particularly in plant selection, filterbed design & construction as well as subsequent aftercare management puts them at the forefront of this rapidly emerging industry.
Benefits include but are not isolated to:
- Low capital and operational costs
- Very low maintenance
- An environmentally sustainable process, no chemicals
- Frequently a strong bias towards minimal carbon impact
- No operational noise
- Aesthetically pleasing
- Often more biodiverse than naturally established reedbeds
