This is the 60" structural plate pipe system in the bottom of the second waste area. The large concrete boxes cover intersections in the plate pipe, and are designed to prevent the high fill above it from crushing the pipe. A leaking pipe underneath a 150' high fill is very bad news, especially with pipes as twisty and as steep as this one is. Photo taken in June 1999.
