After today no other city or town along the Old Man river east of Leth- bridge will be able to point the finger of scorn at .us and tell us our sewage is contaminating Its water supply. For today the Duff Addition sewe_r diver- sion will be completed and tomorrow the sewage will be turned into the sewage disposal plant for treatment before passing into the river. The sewage from that part of the city has a separate outlet and when the sewage disposal plant was built a couple of years ago it wag found j that the connection could not be made without quite a lot of expense which the council did not care to un- dertake at that time. This Spring however, Commissioner Grace made provision for the expenditure in his estimates and now the work is com- pleted. It required the tunnelling of one hill and the building of a trestle to carry the pipe over a coulee.
