"Under suitable circumstances, slow sand filtration
may be not only the cheapest and simplest but also the
most efficient method of water treatment. Its advantages
have been proved in practice over a long period, and
it is still the chosen method of water purification
in certain highly industrialized cities as well as in
rural areas mid small communities. It has the great
advantage over other methods that it makes better use
of the local skills and materials available in developing
countries, and it is far more efficient than rapid filtration
in removing bacterial contamination."
