The only objective of research work upon which this thesis is based was to design, construct, and test a water treatment system to utilize surface water sources to meet the demands for rural domestic and farmstead water. The system would provide an adequate supply of potable water for a family of five and maintain sanitary conditions for milking a herd of thirty cows. It is anticipated that the cows could be supplied water for drinking. The daily family needs would be fifty gallons per person or a total of two-hundred-fifty gallons (20). Approximately four-hundred-fifty gallons of water would meet the daily needs for cleaning the dairy utensils and the milking barn.
