Tour of Belle’s Engine Room - Part 3 of 10

Water to the Boilers - Part 1

Water flows into the Belle from the river through two openings called the sea chests. It flows into a large drum called the live well. There, trash solids in the water either settle to the bottom or float to the top. The water is then pumped from the center of the well where it is cleanest into the rest of the steam system.
