Notes
Survey number HAER WI-3
National Register Number: NR
Significance: The Jones Island Plant was one of the first sewage treatment plants in the United States to employ the activated sludge treatment process successfully. It was the first treatment facility to economically dispose of the recovered sludge by producing an organic fertilizer. Though by the early 1980s the plant had reached the limit of its effectiveness and required extensive rehabilitation, this does not detract from its historic significance as a pioneering facility in the field of pollution control technology.
