Reed Beds

Ecological Solution

GWT have been designing and installing specialist reed beds in various countries for years. The ability to utilise an ecological solution to break down various waste streams without on-going costs is an attractive solution.

The advantages of installing a reed bed:

Once set up the reed bed is low cost to operate providing that it is maintained properly.

There are restrictions in flow volumes, COD and particulate sizes. The reed needs to be specific and in the UK is normally Phragmites Australis buried into a shale base. Over the years we have constructed a variety of shapes and had fish in some reed beds.
