Description: Photograph of the sides of a gully as shown in OK-232-2 that have been sloped in and a 24 inch corrugated pipe is being installed to lower the water a total of 15 feet. This picture shows a position of the pipe as it is being installed. 120 feet of pipe with two step rings were installed and 11,000 cubic yards of earth fill were needed in order to allow flood storage necessary above the structure without using the auxiliary spillway too frequently.
