Mirror Pond Will Be Filled Again Tonight

Emptied 12 days ago to permit contractors to pour concrete for Newport bridge piers, the mirror pond tomorrow morning will again be flush with its banks, if plans announced today materialize. Flood gates of the power dam were to be closed this afternoon and the mirror pond basin will slowly fill through the night.

Today, a city crew rushed to complete the destruction of a mud island out in the mirror pond that has been growing so rapidly in recent years that floats used in the Fourth of July pageant have frequently gone aground.
