I am the archivist for Burns & McDonnell in Kansas City, Missouri. Our company was founded in 1898 by Robert E. McDonnell and Clinton S. Burns. We are an engineering, architectural, construction, consulting, and environmental firm.
In 1913 our company designed and likely supervised the construction of Temple’s Sewer Extension and Treatment Plants and new Sewer System. Please see a page from our 1952 marketing collateral with Temple as the last entry.
Would you know if there are any photographs of the structure and related facilities from that time? Sadly, we do not have any in our archives.
