Surface water treatment by roughing filters : a design, construction and operation manual

This manual presents water treatment alternatives for rural water supplies in developing and newly industrialized countries and describes processes for solid matter separation. Part 1 contains a general introduction to rural water treatment. It describes the water treatment concept and raw water quality of different types of surface water, summarizes the various treatment processes used for solid matter separation, gives a brief account of bacteriological water quality improvement, provides a general layout of water supply schemes, and presents the development of roughing filter application. Part 2 describes design, construction, and operation characteristics of different prefilters and roughing filters. It provides information on filter layout, presents practical experience with different filters, describes construction, operational and economic aspects, illustrates some design examples, and discloses valuable information on the practical implementation of the prefiltration technology.
