In 1913, the construction of the Turkey Creek Diversion Tunnel, made it so that the bulk of the watershed preemptively drained into the Kaw, avoiding the floodplain where it once found confluence. The purpose of this diversion was to allow for the installation of the early 20th century's largest sewer , still in place just south of Kemper Arena. The Turkey Creek Sewer and the OK Creek Diversion Tunnel are profoundly responsible for the West Bottoms we know today.
