DC-Photo 3.10

September 12, 1920. A decade after Photo 3.9, a young lad watches a hydraulic dredge suck up sediments adjacent to crib wall #1 near the stilling basin inlet channel. Ten years after the landfill was completed, the stilling basin continues to need attention. To the southeast, the dredge pipeline stretches far beyond crib wall #2, depositing spoil far from the inlet channel. (MWRD photo 7828)
