An unusual winter rain storm on February 1, 1968, following a cold spell, brought a large amount of hardened grease to the Racine Avenue Pumping Station wet well. The grease is the chunky white material and behind it is a pile of the usual gray material raked off the influent screens. (MWRD photo 34016)
