First water test at Água Carioca pilot

We've carried out the first official water test at the Água Carioca pilot project, located at the Sitio Roberto Burle Marx.

We're pleased to report that, according to this sampling, the effluent from the constructed wetland is of the same quality universally found in these systems after successfully treating domestic waste water.

It's great news and means that the system appears to be successfully doing the job it was created for! We're looking at more regular testing possibilities and also continuing to increase the use of the toilet as much as possible - to give our plants the food they need to grow even taller and more beautiful. We'll keep you informed...
