Floating wetlands and the future of lake water quality

"In the future, the safety of the water that some Ohioans drink or swim in may depend – at least in part – on some unusual objects floating on the Milliron Research Wetlands at The Ohio State University at Mansfield... The experiment, which uses three cells that each contains six artificial floating islands (AFIs), assesses the nutrient removal efficiency of these floating structures. Chen’s goal is to eventually implement the floating wetlands as a low-cost, environmentally friendly and effective remediation/prevention treatment for nutrient pollution in lakes, wetlands and streams in Ohio and elsewhere. Nutrient pollution in bodies of water is one of the most widespread and costly environmental problems in the United States and worldwide." - Excerpt from Ohio State University
