At Floating Islands West, we manufacture each island from post-consumer recycled material. Before ever stepping foot out of our facility, the islands will have already had an impact on the environment by reducing landfill waste and making water stewardship more readily accessible. Once planted and placed into the water, the BioHaven® will serve as a sustainable habitat – providing valuable surface area for micro-organisms which are a critical part of the ecosystem.
``Our premise is that chemicals may work today, but tomorrow they become a detriment. Using biology and a natural process is the way to go.” Regardless of size, all BioHaven® Floating Islands have the unique ability to enhance the health of any pond or waterway...both environmentally and biologically. These islands have been effective at removing contaminants such as nitrogen, phosphorus, BOD, TSS, & Propylene Glycol. We believe in a holistic approach to water stewardship.
``There is no use of chemicals...Where the islands are, the pond is clear, clean and full of life.`` Modeled after nature, floating islands were designed to mimic nature’s own floating wetlands. With the loss and degradation of wetlands, habitat enhancement is becoming even more critical. By providing solutions both above and below the waterline, BioHaven® floating treatment wetlands serve as a highly productive ecosystem – benefiting many living organisms – from microbes, to water nymphs, pollinator species, and many more.
Since 2007, Floating Islands West has been at the forefront of the design of BioHaven® Floating Treatment Wetlands, the world’s most advanced floating water treatment and wetland restoration systems. Our focus is on solutions-based innovation. We are passionate about what we do: providing a powerful, cost-effective tool for cleaning virtually any waterway, and building habitats both above and below the waterline. We believe nature knows best, which is why our islands are designed to mimic natural wetlands.
BioHaven® FTWs have been used by municipalities and homeowners alike, and with sizes ranging from just 2 x 2.5 feet all the way up to an acre; there’s a floating island for every need. At Floating Islands West, our extended team includes experts in everything from water quality to habitat enhancement. As an official manufacturer and distributor of BioHaven® Floating Treatment Wetlands, we make sure that each island that leaves our facility is handcrafted to meet the highest quality standards, and to fit both your needs and your budget.
