Fort Hill, subsoil drainage tile photograph
Description: Photograph of workmen placing subsoil drainage tile in the parking area. Work on the project started March 1934. From March to July no work on the project was performed. During that time the master plan was revised and changes in the plan modified the drainage layout. Considerable labor was consumed for digging drenches on the original scheme which were not used on the layout as installed. The final scheme of drainage consisted of a total of 5,040 lineal feet of subsoil tiling placed in gravel. The project was completed on August 15, 1934. This photo was taken as part of Project No. 27, Other Public Campground Facilities. View on Ohio Memory.
