Fishy Filters: Reducing Phosphorus Levels in Lakes & Rivers in Central Ontario
Region:Simcoe County
City:Ravenna, ON
School:Pretty River Academy
Abstract:An experimental evaluation of aquarium filers to remove phosphorous from water was undertaken. The purpose was to determine if removing phosphorous from water with inexpensive, commonly available fish filters was possible. It was concluded after Simulated Dam and Urban Environment testing, among other tests, that the highest performing filter removed up to 66.6% of phosphorous from polluted water with an activated carbon filter.
