  1. That camera was in the vicinity of NW 30av & Wilson st.
    I dont have my Sewer map handy, But I might think the sewer lift at NW 29 av & Yeon to be associated with this pipeline??

  2. Yeah, Dave, it’s part of the same combined sewer system that we are just getting off of now 90 years later.

  3. @Dave. Storm sewer as in surface water diversion,horse poo and automotive waste.Human waste went to a separate system where available and then straight into the river. This area was primarily served by the little brown shack out back.

  4. I think you can still see the two houses on the right by using Bing’s aerial view.
    They appear to me to be at about 3009 NW Vaughn St.

    Bing doesn’t seem to copy very well into here like Google does.
    You may have to rotate the image and/or select aerial view. However, the two homes on the north side of the dead end appear to be them. (I think)
