BioHaven® Floating Islands are designed to leverage the natural processes of microbes and plants. These man-made wetlands create a sustainable ecosystem for better water quality and a diverse habitat for pollinators, wildlife, and fish. The islands are covered with plants that grow roots below the islands. The wetland can be anchored to adjust to changing water levels which makes it ideal for storm water ponds and other bodies of water that rise and fall after rain.
Plants are just part of the story. The island material encourages robust microbial activity. Floating wetlands help manage phosphorus, nitrogen, heavy metals, and total suspended solids (TSS) for cleaner water.
