Ceramic plate diffusers were among the earliest forms of fine pore diffusers used in activated sludge treatment. They have been successfully used for over 60 years in the Jones Island West Plant of the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District (MMSD) and since 1935 and 1974, respectively, in the MMSD Jones Island East and MMSD South Shore Plants. The Jones Island East Plant aeration basins were completely rehabilitated in 1982-1983, and the West Plant basins were scheduled for rehabilitation in 1989-1990. In both cases, alternative fine pore systems were evaluated and ceramic plate diffusers were again selected. Three separate case history reviews are presented: the Jones Island East Plant, the Jones Island West Plant, and the South Shore Plant. The Jones Island East Plant case history is divided into two separate reports: one covering the period of 1930-1981 and the other the period of 1982-1988. All of the historical reviews discuss the conceptual designs and selection process involved for each of the plants.
