Phytoremediation of iron in ex-sand mining waters by water hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes). Biodiversitas 22: 838-845. The high concentration of iron (Fe) has allegedly caused the water quality of lakes at sand mining area, in East Lampung District, Indonesia. The poor water quality, in which high concentration of Fe will to a reduction in aquaculture production. This study verified the ability of water hyacinths (Eichhornia crassipes (Mart.) Solms.)) as a phytoremediation agent for iron (Fe) concentration in water at the sand mining area, to be adequate for aquaculture. The study was carried out with 4 treatments and 3 replication each, including the treatment of: (A) without water hyacinths (B) 25% water surface coverage, (C) 50% water surface coverage, and (D) 75% water surface coverage of water hyacinths. Measurement of Fe concentrations, bioconcentration factor (BCF) and translocation factor (TF) once a week, until Fe concentrations in water are adequate for aquaculture. This was achieved for 21 days. The results showed that the highest percentage reduction of Fe (97.96%) was observed at water hyacinths cover area 50%. The highest value of BCF was 2,385.51, while the highest TF was 1.14 in stems and 1.02 in leaves. The results of this study open opportunities for use of water in ex-sand mining areas for aquaculture by community and its management by the Government of East Lampung District, Lampung, Indonesia.
