Outside the front door of the Racine Avenue Pumping Station at left is a lower level open chamber containing gate operating mechanisms. The station has numerous gates for maximum flexibility in directing flow. The gate operator in view is for a gate below that can allow the wet well to bypass the pumps and flow directly to the effluent sewer and the Stickney plant. (MWRD unnumbered photo)
