Looking south on April 7, 1937. The outfall construction site has been flooded when the canal rose and overtopped the cofferdam. A portable pump is dewatering the site so that construction can resume. West Towns outlet sewer section 3 included construction of an outfall on the Sanitary & Ship Canal and several sewer connections on sections 1 and 2. (MWRD photo 22887)
