June 13, 1928. Salt Creek intercepting sewer section one near the influent to the West Side pumping station. Looking southwest, the first few hundred feet were constructed by open cut near the pumping station intake. In the background are spoil piles along the north bank of the Sanitary & Ship Canal. Nearly invisible before the spoil piles is the sewer tunnel entrance. (MWRD photo 14052)
