Description
Photograph shows Extending Contra Costa Canal--Slicing through a hill near Concord, an additional section of the Contra Costa Canal of the Central Valley Project is under construction between Seal Creek and Walnut Creek. The crane on the bank at the left is lowering a bucket of concrete to the paving machine which straddles the canal on rails. The concrete lining in the background is three inches thick.
