Design a set of Ten slow sand filter units to treat water for a town of 2 lakh population with
assured water supply of 135 1pcd and maximum daily water is 1.5 times the average
demand. The rate of filtration is 200 litres per square metre per hour (06 Marks)
Module-4
7 a. What are the objectives of water softening? Give a comparison of Lime - Soda process with
Zeolite process of water softening. (05 Marks)
b. A river was proposed as the raw water source for a near by town. Chemical analysis of the
water indicates the constitutes as given below. if the hardness of water supplied to the
residents is to be limited to 160 mg/t, determine the need of softening if any.
Zn = 4 mg/C Na
t
= 18 mg/f.
CC
