October 21, 1940. Installation of the sheeting has been completed on the river side of the federal inner breakwater. Looking north from south wall, the space between the sheeting and breakwater will be backfilled with impermeable clay. Rock backfill will be placed on both the lake and river sides for additional support. (MWRD photo 26448)
