Drinking Water Treatment Using Slow Sand Filtration

Slow Sand Filtration of Tropical Source Waters

Seepage Studies Using Tracers and the Self Potential Test
Mill Creek Dam, a homogeneous silt structure resting on a conglomerate foundation, has experienced severe 'seepage since its construction in 1941. In 1981, a concrete cutoff...

Evaluation of Chlorine Dioxide and Ozone Preoxidation on Conventional Treatment and Direct Filtration
The renewed interest in the use of chlorine dioxide and ozone as preoxidants has focused mainly on their effectiveness on color and THM precursor removal and as disinfectants. This paper...

Slow Rate Sand Filtration Using a Zeolite Surface Amendment
The objective of the study was to obtain detailed information regarding amended filter performance at surface loading rates 2 to 4 times higher than standard flow rates. Experiments were...

Low Head Filtration Removal Efficiencies of Giardia Cysts, Coliform Bacteria, and Turbidity From Low Turbidity Water
The removal of Giardia cysts from low turbidity waters is of great concern in many areas of the United States. A pilot program was undertaken to determine if an established low head filtration...

Removal of EDB from Groundwater by Granular Activated Carbon Filtration
Application of ethylene dibromide (EDB) pesticide to crops may result in contamination of groundwater. Various water treatment alternatives are: granulated activated carbon adsorption,...

Evaluation of Tertiary Wastewater Treatment Systems
The purpose of this paper is to evaluate factors affecting the optimum operations of coagulation-flocculation and filtration processes in municipal wastewater reclamation and reuse. Special...

Direct Filtration of a Semiconductor Wastewater
A pilot plant study was conducted to determine the feasibility of direct filtration for the removal of metal precipitates from a semiconductor manufacturing wastewater. The pH of the acidic...

Direct Filtration of High Turbidity Water Using Contact Flocculation
It is shown that the system of bed contact flocculation followed by standard dual media filters provides a viable alternative to both conventional as well as direct filtration, particularly...

Treatment Plant Comparisons in Removing Molecular Weight Fractions of THM Precursors
This paper describes the performance of several types of water treatment plants in removing various molecular weight fractions of natural occurring aquatic organic matter, some of which...

Direct Filtration of Colored Water Supplies
The effects of raw water quality, chemical treatment, and filtration variables on the performance of direct filtration are examined. Cationic polyelectrolytes as sole coagulants are effective...

Optimization of Design and Operating Parameters for Single-Media, Unstratified-Bed Filters
The potentially successful use of filters containing large grain-size single media for water filtration has prompted investigation of the parameters controlling the performance of these...

Advanced Filtration Techniques for the Reclamation of Sewage Works Effluent
The central Florida region is currently developing a wastewater reclamation program that will eventually treat 50 MGD (189,300 m**3/d) of municipal wastewater for spray irrigation and...

Exfiltration Trench Design as Part of a Stormwater Management Plan
The paper discusses a program structured to assist the design consultant or the agency reviewer by means of a menu driven format. A flood routing microcomputer program developed by the...

Performance Prediction for Removal of Odorous Organics From Drinking Water by Adsorption
The authors address three questions: What do packed bed filters remove from suspension in water treatment plants? How do they accomplish this removal? How can this knowledge be used in...

Particles, Pretreatment, and Performance in Water Filtration
Relationships among raw water quality, pretreatment facilities, and the design of packed bed filters are presented and applied. The particle size, particle concentration, particle surface...
