Floating Treatment Wetland Case Studies

Nutrient Removal with Passive Floating Treatment Wetlands

This case study demonstrates the capabilities of Floating Island International’s patented floating treatment wetland (FTW) technology to clean water by substantially reducing nutrient levels. Constructed of post‐consumer polymer fibers and vegetated with native plants, FTWs mimic the ability of natural wetlands to clean water by bringing a “concentrated wetland effect” to waterways. Over 4,800 FTWs have been installed worldwide over the past decade.

Floating Islands Four Months After Launch

This case study summarizes results of Floating Island International’s patented floating treatment wetland (FTW) technology to mitigate runoff from rural developments. Constructed of post‐consumer polymer fibers and vegetated with native plants, FTWs mimic the ability of natural wetlands to clean water by bringing a “concentrated wetland effect” to these ponds and restored wetlands. The Lake County Stormwater Management Commission named this project “Best Management Practice (BMP) Project of the Year”.

Wave Mitigation Using Floating Island Technology

Floating Treatment Wetlands (FTWs) or BioHaven® floating islands have been proven to dampen wave energy in both deep water and shoreline settings. Thus, they represent a powerful new tool to protect levees, valuable shorelines or other erosion‐sensitive areas. FTWs from Floating Island International Inc. (FII) are constructed of postconsumer plastic fibers and typically vegetated with native plants, and are available in a variety of sizes and shapes.
