I am overseeing the operation of a constructed wetlands for Aquaculture
wastewater. Specifically, Tilapia (freshwater) fish wastewater.
Currently my flow is 6 gal./min. but soon to go to 15 gal./min. and within
3 months up to 24 gal./min.
Our main objective is to remove nitrate-N and phosphate.
Currently the plant we chose to help is Phalaris arundinacea (Canary
The media we are using is peat moss, rockwool "stonewool" and a combination
of the two.
Q: What plants might do well in this wastewater, media and/or treatment
Q: How can I help the plant density (for increased hydraulic conductivity
through the media) establish quickly?
Q: What combination of plants might work best?
Thank you in advance. Dan
