Abstract: The present paper presents results of the study in removal of iron, arsenic and total coliform from drinking water using single-pass constructed soil filter (CSF). Results indicated that arsenic levels ranged from 0.5 to less than 10 μg l−1 levels; iron from 5 to less than 0.3 mg l−1 and coliform from 10−5 to less than 5 CFU/100 ml. The results revealed very high removal efficiency, i.e., over 99% and water quality as per WHO standard.
