Abstract

"The existing East Boulevard Sewage Disposal Plant consists of a set of bar screens, a grit chamber, a battery of three Imhoff tanks, eight trickling filter units, of the rotary-distributor type, and three secondary settling tanks. The plant was designed for a population of 52,500 in 1919 by Clarence W. Hubbell, Consulting Engineer. At the present time the plant shows evidence of loading beyond its capacity, the distress of the Imhoff tanks being particularly acute"--Present Sewage Disposal Facilities, page 5.
