The Southerly plant has two parts: the Raw Sewage Pump Building, which features an innovative self-cleaning well designed to reduce the amount of solids, odors, maintenance, and personal entry; and the Screen and Grit Facility, which is used to keep trash, solids, and other debris from entering into rivers.
