Field Value
Title Gravel Plant De-silting tanks
Description Water used in washing the gravel was de-silted in the two large tanks in the foreground, and thus was used over and over again for the preliminary washing of the gravel, saving much pumping from the river. The raw aggregate entered the plant on the two conveyor belts on the left, and the finished product was stockpiled atop timbered tunnels thru which the hauling belt to the mixing plant stockpiles ran, seen here to the right of the plant. In furnishing aggregate for the base of the dam,... Shown here is the entire concrete complex, with accompanying conveyors, as well as in the distance the trestle bridges of the Grand Coulee construction site and Mason City in the background.
