Abstract:
Phytoremediation is an emerging green technology which uses green plants for the treatment of pollutants or harmful materials present in the environment. The present study focuses on the investigation of phytoremediation potential of tall reed grass Phragmites karka in the constructed wetland system for wastewater in the college campus of Govt. New Law College. Reed bed systems are ecofriendly, self-contained, artificially engineered wetland systems. The efficiency of reed as an effective natural biological tool for waste water treatment was examined. Water samples were taken from the inlet and outlet tank and physicochemical parameters were analysed. The results confirm the phytoremediation potential of Phragmites karka, pH reduced from 8.122 to 7.26, Electrical conductivity decreased from 798.5 to 578.9 µ mho per cm, nitrate reduced from 7.727 to 1.231 mg/L, nitrite reduced from 0.832 to 0.194 mg/L, sulphate from 50.877 to 21.275 mg/L and phosphate from 0.198 to 0.627 mg/L. The results reveal that constructed wetland system is efficient for treatment of wastewater.
