Managed Aquatic Plant Systems - Floating Wetlands - Riverside Duck Pond Project

Listed below are several photographs of a pond where the existence of Nutrients In-Nutrients Out is of balance.  Due to the large waterfowl population and the local resident's feeding the ducks, the waterbody  constantly accumulates nutrients.  However the water body possesses no capability or mechanism for removing those nutrients.  Algae blooms are perennial and the water quality poor.  Floating Wetlands are in the process of being added to the pond to provide the Nutrient Out Component.  We will be posting data and photographs of the results.
