Abstract
Recent occurrence of numerous outbreaks of waterborne giardiasis has renewed interest in water filtration for cyst removal. This paper presents an in-depth review of granular media and diatomaceous earth (D.E.) filtration research conducted in the 1930's and 1940's when Entamoeba histolytica cyst problems were a great concern. Recent studies with cyst models and Giardia muris cysts suggest that properly operated water filtration plants should be able to remove a high percentage of G. lamblia cysts.
