In 1922, the Portland Water District contracted the Bennett Contracting Company to lay 16 inch pipes along the bottom of Casco Bay to improve water service to South Portland. This photo is a general view of the pipe laying and dredging machines. The submarine water line was laid to the east side of the bridge connecting Portland and South Portland. The City of Portland waterfront appears in the background.Show Details
