Slow Sand Filtration for Water Treatment

Slow sand filtration relies on both physical and biological activity in controlling plant pathogens. In a slow sand filter, the filter bed is constructed of a medium with high surface area which can be colonized by suppressive micro-organisms. This fine media also presents a physical barrier to the passage of spores of plant pathogens.
