Austria, Central Europe, Tirol, 1855 m above sea level

hello dear treatmentwetlands readers, I hope most of you are on holiday....or still working? Both are right!
Last week I were in Austria and during a landscaping excursion on the Tirol sunny mountains I have found this beautiful phragmites field. Keep calm, don't think it is a big sloping treatment wetland.. it is just a natural reed field but the strange of it is that I was at 1855 m asl. As you seen the highest part of it is near 2000 m asl...

Well somewhere in the world you can realize also treatment wetlands systems with phragmites also at this altitude!
I think I will contact the local administrators to promote treatment wetlands!

hi friends, LIVE greetings from 1498 m asl from Rifugio Casera Bosconero in the Dolomiti area North of Italy, where 2 beds for a total of 80 sqm treat the wastewaters!  All the bed surface was planted in 2004 with local species, now there are senecio, aconitum and few others.... and yes we get clean water in the final tank!!!
take a look at these beautiful and significative pictures!!!

in the older posts there are a lot of information about this plants
