Construction of the West Side plant began late in 1926, and by April 20, 1927, the foundations of the Imhoff tanks for battery A are being prepared. Looking northeast, the tanks run in an east-west direction. The sloping tank bottoms of the lower compartment rest on native soil. Under drainage and drain piping has already been installed.
