History of West Perimeter South


West Perimeter South is largely undeveloped, home to West End Water Pollution Control Centre, 7740 Wilkes Avenue. This facility, one of three operated by the City, takes wastewater from homes and businesses, removing both inorganic (sand and gravel) and organic materials and releasing the water into the river. The system removes approximately 90-95% of the organic materials by controlling and speeding up the decomposition process through primary and secondary treatments and large polishing ponds.[1]
