Comments Off on Floating Islands Will Restore Life to Minnesota’s Spring Lake

What do you do with a “severely impaired” body of water and an unsightly shoreline park that is riddled with invasive species ?  Launch a series of luscious floating islands! In an effort to improve water conditions and restore natural habitats, the American Society of Landscape Architects has designed a series of seven  floating islands (aka floating treatment wetlands). The  islands , which mimic native wetlands, are constructed from non-toxic, post-consumer recycled plastics and then injected with inert polyurethane foam (the kind of stuff found in Memory Foam mattresses) for buoyancy.
