The Lower Meramec Wastewater Treatment Plant sits on 200 acres of land, where the Meramec and Mississippi Rivers meet in South St. Louis County. The plant is owned and operated by MSD.
Waste travels from homes and businesses throughout the community through tunnels and pipes hundreds of feet below ground to the plant, which treats an average of 15 million gallons of wastewater per day.
Now, for the first time, virtual technology gives you a close up, 360-degree look in and around our plant from the comfort of your computer. You can walk around and explore on your own, using the circles on the floor to explore each space.
