HistoryDesigned and built by the Austin Co. of Cleveland, Ohio, in 1953, this structure is an irregular shaped concrete building with a flat roof. The major portion is one story, with a two-story windowless wing extending south. One of the original buildings at the site, this was the first liquid waste treatment facility. In 1966, an evaporator was added. By 1970, the plant had grown too fast and more waste treatment capacity was needed, so Building #374 was built.
