Orange peels powder was used to enhance the removal efficiency of Soil Aquifer System (SAT) for the removal of Copper and Zinc. The bench scale studies were carried out using 4 different concentrations of both metals in water (5, 10, 15, 20 mg/l) and varying adsorbent heights (25%,50%,75%) in 1.0m soil depth. Soil properties were determined and silty sand soil was used. The efficiency of SAT to remove Cu and Zn without orange peels resulted in 40.8%, 42.2%, 41.93%, 40.43% for Cu and 38.8%, 38%, 36.2%, 37.1% for Zn respectively. The adjunction of orange peels in SAT resulted in increased removal efficiency. While the efficiency was observed maximum at 50% height of adsorbent resulting in 85.8%, 84.2%, 79.8% and 81.3% for Cu and 62.8%, 52.4%, 55.46%, 58.75% for Zn. Comparison studies show that SAT in conjunction with orange peels showed better performance than without adsorbent one.
