October 4, 1927. Back fill has been placed against the exterior walls of battery A and the other batteries at the West Side plant to create a new elevated ground level for operating employees to service the tanks. After pumping sewage from underground to the top of the new ground level, gravity is used for sewage to flow through the treatment process. (MWRD photo 13474)
