Looking southwest at the downstream side of the dam, January 20, 1909. Backfill must be placed against the high side walls and downstream wing walls before the dam is complete. Five buttresses support the vertical overflow wall of the dam. The notch in the top of the far end of the vertical wall is for low flow. (MWRD photo 4282)
