Looking west from the roof of the sludge disposal building on July 5, 1938. The 12 preliminary settling tanks are positioned some distance from the west wall of the pump and blower building in the foreground. The intervening area was intentionally left for construction of aerated grit tanks, which were finally constructed in 1963. (MWRD photo 24190)
