Wastewater originates from numerous activities from domestic, industrial, agricultural, surface run-off and also infiltration system. The discharge of the wastewater from the activities listed above is considered as a serious treats to the ecosystem if it not dealt properly. That is why the discharges or effluent from the wastewater needs to be treated properly before it can be safely release back to the ecosystem. Phytoremediation is a type of bioremediation process where it utilizes green plants as a removal body to biologically clean up the hazardous contaminants in soil and water. This study will assess on the efficiency, suitability of the aquatic macrophyte ie. water lettuce to treat the wastewater effluent. The study resulted in nitrate removal of 20 – 40%, 30 – 95% for removal of ammonia, 45% of phosphorus removal and COD removal is 20 – 50%. Reactor 1 containing Pistia Stratiotes or water lettuce had the most nutrient removal than Reactor 2 and this is confirmed by the water lettuce growth of more than 90% in all compartments of Reactor 1. Water lettuce is able to absorb the nutrients from the system and use it for its growth.
