Phosphorus was removed in the lab experiments, but field results were inconclusive, due mostly to the low loadings. Copper and zinc were removed in both lab and field filters (27-66%). Mothersill et al. [25] describe tests conducted on the SABF after one and three years of operation to evaluate the impacts of accumulated sediment on its performance and treatment efficiency. They found that the high accumulation of sediment, predominately in the upper 200 mm of the filter, changed the hydraulic properties of the biofilter and decreased the effectiveness of aqueous carbon and phosphorus removal.
