The Milwaukee Sewerage Commission's Jones Island Waste Water Treatment Plant consists of a mutual primary treatment facility followed by two separate activated sludge plants. To enhance phosphorus removal in the 115 MGD East Plant, hot spent sulfuric acid pickle liquor (ferrous sulfate) was added for a one year test period in 1970 while the 85 MGD West Plant was operated as a control. This follow up report covers the 1971 operational period in detail and the first four months in 1972. (Modified author abstract)
