Re:constructed wetland for Aquaculture wastewater
>Q: What plants might do well in this wastewater, media and/or
Water hyacinth (Eichornia crassipes) is often used because it is
extremely fast growing and can remove a lot of N and P. It is a
free-floating plant, so you would need a foot or so of water depth for
it to float properly.
However, water hyacinth is illegal to possess in most of the southern
states, because it can grow quickly and clog waterways and intakes.
Texas allows the use of water hyacinth as a wastewater treatment, but
you must have the proper permits and site design to prevent it from
escaping into the wild.
