The site consists of three sunken pipes that were once the intake and outflow for the decomissioned Bayside Power Plant and the Traverse City Waterworks. There are three pipes with the longest pipe being almost a quarter of a mile long! Of particular interest are the ends of the two longest pipes. There is a parking lot on the north side of the Grandview Parkway near its intersection with Union Street.
