By October 1, 1940, the sheeting has been driven to a point beyond the US Coast Guard Station where it passes through the breakwater. Looking south from the same point as in the prior photograph, the sheeting is braced with tie rods to the breakwater and the intervening space is being backfilled with impermeable clay to seal the breakwater. Rock backfill will be placed on the lake side of the sheeting for additional support. (MWRD photo 26396)
