West Towns outlet sewer section 2 has been completed by April 29, 1937, including the smaller short branch sewer in Thirteenth Street. Looking northeast, the main 12-foot sewer will be flowing from the north and the 6-foot branch from the east. Ladder rungs embedded in the side walls will be useful to steady laborers who may have to perform maintenance in the sewer. (MWRD photo 23030)
