Description
Various aspects of the design include:
"...a 15 mgd plant that will service the residents of Wilsonville, a public park/landscape, an interpretive display, an 800-foot concrete and stone "garden wall" (the west wall of many of the plant buildings) that conceals the plant from the public park and from the neighbors. It also forms a backdrop for interpretive displays and for sheltered picnic areas. Also included is a 6,000 square-foot administration building which will house a laboratory, a conference room and support offices."--http://www.millerhull.com/html/index.html
