Upflow gravel filter in layer (UGFL) is a pretreatment process that is being used in tropical countries in multi-stage filtration systems (MSF) which combines dynamic roughing filters (DRF) in combination with different forms of pre-treatment filters (upflow, down flow and horizontal flow gravel filters) and slow sand filtration (SSF).
