Looking easterly toward the west side of the federal inner breakwater at the point where the sheeting passes through the inner breakwater and continues south to the south wall, October 1, 1940. The District had to make the breakwater impermeable to prevent river water from flowing through the breakwater into the lake. (MWRD photo 26399)
