The fenced off area between the recycling banks and the Centre is still owned by Thames Water, it is now overgrown, but the settlement tanks used to be there before being filled in when they ceased to be used in the 1950's. It was considered contaminated ground, hence its fencing off and not forming part of the land used for the Centre. I understand that it no longer poses a threat to health, other than its overgrown state with brambles, nettles and uneven ground  :-[
