CLIENT: Zhenjiang Hydraulic Bureau  LOCATION: Zhenjiang, China  YEAR: 2015  

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.
