Most of the Salt Creek intercepting sewer was constructed by the tunnel method. On November 29, 1927, a head house is being erected over a vertical shaft that will provide access to the tunnel along Riverside Road in Riverside. A steam-powered hoist will be installed in the head house to move materials, tunnel muck and workers between the street and tunnel levels. (MWRD photo 13625)
