The main buildings of the West-Southwest plant as they appeared in 1970 looking southeast from the final settling tanks of battery C. The sludge disposal building with four smokestacks is behind the pump and blower building, and the coal and heat dried sludge conveyor slopes down to the right. Two smokestacks at left are part of the original building and the two at right came with the expansion of both buildings. (MWRD unnumbered photo)
