Looking north, December 19, 1925. The new conduit has been completed and Edison added sluice gates in each to facilitate maintenance. The District proceeded to build the sewer crossing over the conduits within the right-of-way of California Avenue. The conduits were used for cooling water from the North Branch until 1970, when the generating station was taken out of service. (MWRD photo 12464)
