Enhanced Slow Sand Filtration for the Removal of ...

Among these technologies, slow sand filtration is commonly employed for groundwater treatment in remote areas, owing to the cost-effectiveness, simple setup and operation, and high removal efficiency for bacteria, metals (e.g. iron), and organics (Hatva, 1988).
