Summary in English
Biological water treatment involves the use of naturally occurring micro-organisms in the surface water to improve water quality. Under optimum conditions, including enough oxygen, the organisms break down material in the water such as dissolved organic carbon (DOC) and thus improve water quality. Sand or carbon filters are used to provide a place on which these micro-organisms grow.
