English Abstract

Hydrilla has the ability to improve water quality by absorbing nutrients with an effective root system. The aim of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of hydrilla reducing the nutrient content of any water to reduce the level of water contamination. The paper is the result of off-site experiments conducted on samples collected from the Brentas River of the Didrile River Aldwiriyah. The results indicate that Hydrilla is able to improve water quality by reducing the concentration of cadmium, lead and organic compounds. Water purification through plants is a good example of water purification with natural means. The aim of this study is to investigate the feasibility of Hydrilla as a phytoremediator to improve the quality of river water samples collected from Brantas River, Malang, Indonesia. The phytoremediation process is carried out in static river water samples, and the results show that Hydrilla is capable to augment the reduction the nitrite and ammonia content in the samples, while leaving nitrate and phosphate unaffected within the constraints of the study.
