Wetland Plants to Clean Polluted Lakes
Several small floating 'oasis' of green plants have been helping Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) to clean its polluted lakes that too in an environment-friendly manner. The pilot project has been initiated in three lakes. The result is that water quality has improved and there is reduction in the foul odor from the lakes.

The pilot project is being carried out under the guidance of National Environmental Engineering Research Institute (NEERI) using Floating Wetlands or 'Florafts'. It involves planting certain varieties of plants in rafts that helps fight pollution.

The roots of these plants take up pollutants from the water like excess nitrogen and phosphorus. They increase dissolved oxygen content and help trap sediments, thus serving as feeding and breeding grounds for dragonflies, birds and fishes as well.
