Looking north on April 7, 1937. The flooded outfall construction site has backed water up to the start of West Towns outlet sewer section 1. Another portable pump is assisting in dewatering the site. A short distance inside the completed sewer, but not visible, a bulkhead restricts floodwater from encroaching farther upstream in the completed sewer. (MWRD photo 22891)
