Slow sand filters pass water at rates of about 3 MGD/ acre (28 MLD/ha) in surface water filtration, stepping up to about 10 MGD/acre (94 MLD/ha) in groundwater treatment for iron and manganese removal or when they are preceded by roughing filters.

Whether overall results are helpful depends on the volume and nature of wastewater flows and the chosen regimen of the stream. 2 SAFE YIELD OF STREAMS In the absence of storage, the safe yield of a river system is its lowest dry-weather flow; with full development of storage, the safe yield approaches the mean annual flow. The economical yield generally lies somewhere in between. The attainable yield is modified by (a) evaporation, (b) bank storage, (c) seepage out of the catchment area, and (d) silting.
