In the first two stages, many of the solids, including feathers, pieces of entrails and vegetable pieces, are taken out of the sewage in a swirling tank. Tho solids settle to the bottom of the 20-foot, tank and are raked out. Air injected at the botlom of the tank keeps the organic ma- terials floating. Going Into the first stage, the sewage is a muddy brown color early in the afternoon and often changes to a maroon color later in the day, corresponding with the time packing plants wash blood from the floors. From the primary' treatment tajiks, tlie sewage flows to three aeration tanks where the biolo- gical process of secondary sew- age trealmcnt begins. At this stage, the sewage from the south side primary treatment plant is pumped in through a two-mile long syphon line and also receives secondary treat ment.
