As many of us probably recognize, nutrients in the right ratio are the building blocks of life. Natural systems evolve around nutrients, making them indispensable. When they cycle through a food web, without stacking up, the ecosystem can be incredibly productive. This, among other things, creates a path to pristine water.
The challenge comes when the ratio of nutrients is off, and they stack up.
Certain life forms have evolved around such imbalance, and developed an ability to thrive. For example, phytoplankton can pull nitrogen from the atmosphere. So if there is carbon (which is almost always the case) and phosphorus, phytoplankton (algae) is well positioned to prosper. Unfortunately, prosperous algae can often lead to Harmful Algae Blooms, polluting our pristine water. There is another life form that can outcompete algae.
The life form that can outcompete phytoplankton has actually been doing so successfully for hundreds of millions of years. These are biofilm-generating microbes, and they are the key component of nature’s wetland system. Today humans can design for nature’s wetland system to fix water. And you can too. You can manage water and steward it so that it is both extremely productive and healthy. This is what BioHavens specialize in…they are floating wetlands. They are versatile, and can be the path to productive and healthy water.
