Abstract: An experimental study is being carried out to observe the transformation in water quality parameters when treated wastewater is recharged into a coarse sand medium placed in a laboratory flume. A significant improvement in the water quality is observed during the passage of treated wastewater through the sand. The results of this preliminary study would be useful in designing a full scale field recharge-and-recovery experiment on a reclaimed land in Singapore.
