Reed beds clean up nursery run-off water

Reed beds clean up nursery run-off water

Government legislation in many parts of Australia now restricts the discharge of nutrient laden runoff water from any premises, including nurseries. Restrictions also exist in many areas on water usage, regardless of the source. Reed beds efficiently remove nutrients and organic matter from nursery runoff. This Nursery paper describes how they work and their potential in a nursery runoff recycling system. (TNP 2003#05)
