Title: The Great Steel Flume, The Sandusky River, March 1913
Author: Niebergall, Ernst
Description: More than 30 skilled workmen laid a steel flume - reputed to have a diameter of 12 feet in some sources and 14 feet in others - to carry water from the Sandusky River to a hydroelectric plant. When the flood of March 1913 struck, parts of the immense steel tube were lifted away from their foundations and carried a half mile or more down the river.
