Shortage of drinking water is the big challenge for urban as well as rural areas. The water treatment involves a huge cost, which is the main reason for using untreated water for drinking purposes in many urban areas in India. The use of contaminated water for drinking purpose of causing water born‐diseases like Diarrhoea, Typhoid, etc and seriously affect the human health. The disposal of generated wastewater from residential as well as industrial/commercial sources also an important concern now a day. Filtration is a process for separating the contaminants from water as well as wastewater by passing through the porous media. Filter media refers to a layer of filter materials which helps to achieve the filtration process. In this work, a single unit filtration system is developed which is going to treat the water as well as wastewater which generated onsite. Various materials like activated carbon, activated zeolite and activated alumina going used to construct the multimedia filtration system. The advantage of this project will help to convert the acidic water into alkali, and to increase the total dissolved solids concentration in drinking water source, remove excess total dissolved solids from wastewater, removal of the organic matter from wastewater. One of the important mechanisms, adsorption which helps to remove the contaminants from wastewater.
