Introduction Purification of water by biological filters is a process that is as old as the earth, but researchers have been slow to experiment with the treatment of wastewater by biological filters. The design and operation of a biological filter wastewater treatment system is similar to aquatic-based plant based systems in that both use the benefits of plants, but with some subtle differences. Specifically, with a biological filter–based system, there is no surface water exposed to the digestion process. Rather the effluent goes below grade and is biologically digested in much the same manner as a septi…
