East of the intersection of Albany and Carmen avenues, North Side Intercepting Sewer No. 3 crosses under the North Branch, upstream of the North Branch Dam. The sewer in this short segment was constructed by the open cut method to avoid problems with water and the potential for flooding. The stream was conveyed over the sewer construction in a wooden flume, shown to the south behind the horizontal bracing, August 20, 1925. (MWRD photo 12088)
