Description: The production of high-salinity waste waters by landfills and other waste sites causes environmental concerns. This waste water often contains high concentrations of sodium and chloride, which may end up in local ground and surface waters. Vegetation filter systems comprised of willows and poplars can be used for the recycling of saline waste water. These vegetation filters can lock waste water within the bounds of the landfill system and prevent it from entering the surrounding environment.

Keywords: electrical conductivity, waste sites, poplar, phytoremediation, phytotechnologies, willow
