the subdivision but the wetlands develop a living microfilm on its roots that feeds off the nutrients.” This is a pilot project that the SNCA will be monitoring. Other ways to prevent unpleasant and environmentally poor al- gae blooms in stormwater ponds or similar features include leaving a wide buffer strip of vegetation around the pond and not mowing too close, reducing fertilizer appli- cations and encouraging cattails, which Symington says are very important. The SNCA is encouraging low-impact development, such as the use of enhanced grass swales, open ditch and perched culverts, and pervious paving stones, all of which allow rainwater to percolate slowly through the ground rather than quickly run off and collect in a stagnant pool. Other possible applications for the floa- ting wetland include treatment of muni- cipal wastewater, waterways degraded by agricultural runoff, and ponds and lakes impacted by waterfowl or septic systems.

LIMOGES | A stormwater pond built within the last few years to serve a Limoges de- velopment has produced undesirable al- gae growth. A partial solution, a floating wetland, was installed on June 17 by the South Nation Conservation Authority. The mats of the floating wetland hold plants with long roots that will improve water quality by using up the oversupply of nu- trients in the water. The Nation mayor François St-Amour and SNCA chairperson Bill Smirle attended the installation. “Floating wetlands provide a highly effi- cient, natural way to improve water qua- lity and buffer habitats against surges in nutrients and pollution,” said Jason Syming- ton, SNC Environmental Technologist. “Nu- trients in fertilizer and pet waste come off
