The same split is viewed from the dewatered interior of the cofferdam, June 10, 1937. Additional cables have been installed to restrain the split from further movement. This split occurred after timber piles were driven into the lakebed. The gap between the split sheeting will be bridged with timbers and the spilled material put back into the cell so construction can proceed inside the cofferdam. (MWRD photo 23246)
