The open tanks have beds of gravel and soil that will help cleanse the water and provide it to the plants. A small pump will keep the water circulating. [Photo: Wes Ozier & text: sa]

Wes transplanted aquatic plants from the oxidation pond into the two open tanks of the ‘living machine system’. The system will cleanse grey water from the East Housing kitchen for use in the surrounding gardens. [Photo & text: sa]
