September 8, 1909. A dredge is at work in the stilling basin along with other work boats in this northeast view from the Sheridan Road trestle. Clay dredged from the bottom has been stockpiled pending loading onto scows for placement in the landfill or towed to a disposal area in the lake. Two sail boats are moored along crib wall #2, foretelling the future use of the stilling basin. (MWRD photo 4224)
