Pharmaceutically active compounds: Their removal during slow sand filtration and their impact on slow sand filtration bacterial removal.


Slow sand filtration (SSF) has been widely used as a means of providing potable water due to its efficacy, low cost, and minimal maintenance. Advances in analytical instrumentation have revealed the occurrence of pharmaceutically active compounds (PhACs) in surface water as well as in groundwater. It is unclear if the presence of these compounds in the feed… (More)
