Filtration of water is done to remove turbidity.

Solution

Filtration is the process of removing the suspended solids from the water. During the filtration, process impurities which are in the form of suspended solids get entrapped with medium particles and filtered water gets purified.

After continuous filtration, a layer is formed over the filter media which is sticky in nature. This layer also helps in the filtration process by attaching impurities like suspended solids and organic matter also. Filtration decreases the turbidity of water by removing the suspended solids from water. Hence, filtration of water is done to remove turbidity.
