Looking west from the Halsted Street headwall on September 24, 1924, the eastern half of the East Arm has been dewatered. An additional barrier was placed across the arm east of Morgan Street. Construction of the new sewer could begin east of Morgan, while additional work was needed west of Morgan before dewatering could begin. (MWRD photo 11111)
