Green Earth Operations designed and led the installation of
a canal water restoration project in ZhenJiang, China using the
Active Island Technology™. This project entailed constructing 6
floating wetland ecosystems totaling 396 m2 which were planted
with over 6000 wetland and riparian plants. This technology
uses a micro-bubble diffused air system and hanging Dynamic Media™ columns under each wetland to support attached growth
treatment. This water project is targeted in reducing nitrogen and
BOD from untreated sewage releases during storm events and
providing a unique floating wildlife habitat. This canal restoration
approach can be applied to canal and river restoration projects.
