"Sioux Falls, the largest city in South Dakota is situated on a bend in the Sioux River. The flow of this river ranges from a recorded minimum flow or 9 to a maximum flood flow of 500 cu. ft. per second. As originally designed and built the sewage system emptied into the river at three main outlets. In 1910 the City had a population of approximately 14000 people, and during the next decade its population practically doubled. During this period of growth there was added to the industries of the City a large meat packing plant which has been steadily growing and has exercised a marked influence upon the liquid wastes of the City, until at the present time when the waste from this source alone is approximately 50 percent in volume of the total amount of waste produced by the rest of the City.
