Description

September 18, 1942. Pine Street sewer project between Morse Place and Home Ave. This view shows the sewer trench with 10 inch tile installed from Morse Place to a point about mid-way of the block. The excavation the foreground is for the construction of the manhole at station 250 from the intersection of Home Ave. Note that sand filling is used for a cushion under the tile and for backfilling around the tile and for a depth of approximately one foot over the tile. This project is being done under our regular sewer appropriation. A trench hoe was used for digging the trench which was in clay and very tough hard-pan with numerous large boulders which had to be drilled and blasted. No solid rock was encountered.
