Pilot-plant studies with an experimental water hyacinth treatment pond have led to the development of a system that can treat wastewater high in sulfate without the development of odors or insect nuisances. The treated effluent corresponds to that from an advanced secondary treatment process. The effluent from the process is stable and the process can withstand plant upsets. The results have led to the design and construction of a 3800 m³/d water hyacinth treatment facility. Res. J. Water Pollut. Control Fed., 61, 1625 (1989).
