Application of plant-based reed for potable water, in Tasik Chini, Pahang

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Water from Tasik Chini has been used to run through a series of reed bed system to test for its use as potable water. This study used aquatic plants namely Lepironia articulata and Scirpus grossus which grows wild and abundant at Tasik Chini wetland as selected macrophyte to aid in the system. This study started with batch flow and free-surface flow (FSF) for 30 days. Result indicated that, L. articulate alone gave 76 % of removal efficiency in TSS and 86% in removal of E.coli number of colonies on the plate. This was higher than S. grossus and combination of S.grossus and L.articulata. However, tank combination of S. grossus and L. articulata gave 100% efficiency in removal color, and improved ph better. In trace element removal, L. articulata was also capable of removing arsenic and lead (Pb) at 34.8% and 64.2% respectively. While, S. grossus shows best efficient at removing cadmium (Cd), and manganese (Mn), which is 46.8 % and 75.6% respectively. Combination of S. grossus and L. articulata gave best removal percentage in removing iron (Fe) which was 74.3%.
