Jonathan P. Ritson, et. al, Managing peatland vegetation for drinking water treatments


Peatland ecosystem services include drinking water provision, flood mitigation, habitat provision and carbon sequestration. These results provide evidence that practices aimed at re-establishing Sphagnum moss on degraded peatlands could reduce costs and improve efficacy at water treatment works, offering an alternative to ‘end-of-pipe’ solutions through management of ecosystem service provision.
