In case you missed it, unlikely as that is, last weekend we had our first episode of heavy rain this winter. And guess what: Albany’s Riverfront Interceptor, a big sewer main that drains most of the central part of town, did NOT overflow.
For years, three or four times a week, I have passed this concrete ruin by the side of Albany’s Dave Clark Riverfront Path without thinking anything about it. The other day I finally wondered what it was a ruin of.
As I say above, today I found the Dave Clark Path on Albany’s Willamette Riverfront cleared of the blackberry bushes and thorny vines that threatened to snag walkers and bike riders the last few weeks.
