This overview of the application of slow sand filtration to modern drinking water technology was compiled from contributors to the second international conference on slow sand filtration. The conference, which carried the title "Timeless technology for modern applications", was convened at the University of New Hampshire, USA, in October 1991. This book includes research and experiences not only from USA and United Kingdom, but also from Brazil, Peru and Colombia. The book covers the following topics: design and construction; pretreatment techniques for particulate removal; preozonation; process mechanisms and performance; modelling and process control; operation and maintenance; and a review of research needs.
