Abstract text This work investigated the influence of the installation of a subsurface aeration pipe on Intermittent Sand Filters (ISF) efficiency to treat anaerobic systems effluent. At low subsurface application rate, the ISF with an extra pipe showed greater aeration and better nitrification that was statistically proven by Kruskal-Wallis but no improvements were found in organic matter removal.
