For 2 years, UCF executive member Zack Marimon, has built an incredible initiative, preforming a biological research experiment that uses different species of native aquatic vegetation and strategically plants them around retention ponds or small lakes.
The purpose is to eliminate chemical maintenance and high nutrient run off into these pond systems, as well as reduce the amount of algal blooms that occur. Down to the science, I.D.E.A.S. is helping identify a new sustainable method of filtering these wetland systems through biological agents that naturally absorb the impacting nutrients.
