The River Des Peres Sewage and Drainage Works extends 14 miles from the city limits northwest to Delmar and Skinker to the Mississippi River south of the city.

Four miles of massive, enclosed reinforced concrete sewers and 10 miles of open channel were constructed from 1924 to 1933 by the City of St. Louis, making this facility one of the largest of its kind in the world.
