Bioengineering With Vetiver Grass on Guam

Monday, April 11, 2011

This article - Bionegineering with Vetiver Grass on Guam - published with information from Guam University, is very pertinent for our coastal areas.  Professor Mohammad Golabi, has completed a pilot project protecting a coastal area adyacent to a residential contruction project on Pago Bay.  These Vetiver hedges will trap the sediment resulting from the construction site before it affects the coral reefs in that area.

Many coastal areas of the USA are under similar pressure from construction projects, agricultural practices, and industrial contaminants.  Vetiver is a great bioengineering tool to reduce the damage and clean up our coastline.  We sorely need more research and pilot projects from our regulatory agencies.
