Floating Wetlands Forum – Register Now!

Be part of an exciting in-person forum at Deakin Downtown, 727 Collins Street, Melbourne on Thursday the 8th of February 2024, 10am – 2pm.

Hear from the project team behind Westernport Water’s floating wetlands pilot project as they share preliminary trends during its establishment phase.

Floating wetlands use wetland plant species that are suspended on the water column with roots submersed in the water. The plants take up nutrients and contaminants from the water and hold these in their plant material.

The study is the first of its kind to measure the performance of a floating wetland on both water quality and greenhouse gas emissions and aims to provide evidence to support and encourage more nature-based solutions in the water sector.
