ABSTRACT Reed ( Phragmites australis ) improves water removal in sewage sludge drying beds of conventional design. Sewage sludge is converted by plant-mediated microbial processes to a “friable soil”. This is connected with the plant's ability to create zones of oxidation within the sludge deposits resulting in enhanced decomposition of organic matter, nitrification, and denitrification. Sludge type and loading rate must be suitable for the growth of reed.
