This article reports on the possible use of Mobile reed beds in minimizing accidental water pollution. Aardvark EM is due to trial the lightweight reed beds across Exmoor. Funded by Exmoor National Park it will treat four different types of waste water, agricultural, domestic, industrial and leisure.
