The report that the water backed up

foundation.' While It Is true that
there are entrances to the mine near
the Buffalo creek level and also on the
Washington street level, Buffalo creek
ltsel( Is so much lower than Washing

for water (rom the creek itseH to have

The underground waters (rom the

have caused the slide, acordlng to en

by a spring covered up when the fill
