Abstract:In this article we tried to demonstrate the effectiveness of water hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes) in the pond wastewater purification of Moscow city treatment facilities. Nowadays the number of various reservoirs and rivers where the quality of water is estimated as unsatisfactory is catastrophically increasing. The greatest harm to the various sort of rivers and reservoirs bring drains as they get wastes of manufactures that causes pollution of rivers and reservoirs. Because of that reason, it is necessary to find out new technologies of clarification of water, as in the near future there will be problem with drinking water. Water hyacinth plant is one of the most effective method for solving of this problem.Application of water hyacinth allows to clarify, drains and reservoirs from organic and bacteriological pollution and also provides natural creation of very attractive landscape. The method provides not only a purification of biogenic waste, but also the possibility of using it as water after irrigation, and for other industrial purposes. The amount of products of petroleum, industrial oils, manure, phenol, sulfates, phosphates, synthetic surfactants, mineral salts, pathogens respectively decreased in pond wastewater after adding of water hyacinth plants (Eichhornia crassipes) in a week. Sewage water clarification by water hyacinth plants is cheaper. On the other hand water hyacinth is an invasive plant so this method should be used in ponds under control.
