LAYING A SEWER TILE UNDER A CREEK HAS ITS HAZARDS . FIRST CONSTRUCTION WORKERS CONSTRUCTED A DIRT DAM THAT SOON SPRANG A LEAK . TO STOP THE WATER FLOW , HUGE SHEET METAL PANELS WERE DRIVEN DEEP INTO THE CREEK BED . HERE WORKERS AT THE CONSTRUCTION SITE ABOUT A QUATER-MILE SOUTH OF THE EAST KINGSHIGHWAY BRIDGE , GET READY TO COVER THE TILE ABOUT FOUR FEET BELOW THE CREEK BED WITH CONCRETE.
