As a soil scientist I can tell you that the colorations of the water are more caused by the amount of soil exposed to the running water. The bin with the plants is only clear because of the amount of plant material that prevents the soil from being picked up (bin has roots and stems). The bin with the leaves is clearer because the decaying plant humus is doing an alright job at keeping the soil in place. The bin with only dirt will only produce muddy water because there is no other material inside it. So in reality this "experiment" really only shows how plant and leaf cover affects the amount of soil in runoff. While the water in the one with plants is clear, it didn't really filter any pollutants moving across it. If there was a way to see the water after it moves down through the soil after being absorbed then you would see the filtration effect.

Or it could just be that the plants in the first jug are holding the dirt so it is not eroded as quickly as in the last jug where there is nothing to stop the dirt from being picked up by the water? This is basic earth science people.

As why is this on the front page? WTH is happening to funnyjunk?......

It says pollution. Dirt is not pollution,.... it's dirt. Pollution implies a harmful impurity. Dirt is not necessarily harmful, just unpalatable. Also, the opening of the bottle is at the level of the surface of the dirt, hence the water collected is not 'ground water', but 'water runoff'. These are two totally different things. If water runs over dirt, there are going to be dirt particles in the water. Having plants reduces how much dirt is picked up, but people don't tend to drink water that runs over dirt in the first place. So basically this picture and the quote put with it tells us NOTHING about plants purifying water for us to drink.

And once again,.... where is the funny?

Classic free rider problem. Privatize ALL the things, because everyone's much more likely to take good care of their own property.
