PLANT RE FILTRATION PLANT Kdftor Lcthhridge Herald: Dear article In your or the by Mr. Wardmau cals for u roply for the reason that Mr> 'is evidently misinformed and there may bt; many others who do not know the facts. Tho writer oi' tho article mention- ed says: "Without minimizing our. tithing wiiui. could we I am given to understand ithat the sewage from Duff addition I wtis discharged into the river dire'ct- 1 ly above tlm intake and pumped back into the city's mains in a dilute form." In case any onn should be misled by 'thin statement I wish to advise the public that neither the Duff sewer nor any other of cur sewers enter or have ever entered our river above or close below our intake. The Duff sower has always entered the river at the same point as the main sewer far be- our intake but in the last fetf months it was connected to the sew- age disposal plant in order not to contaminate the water for those fur- ther down the river. I do not understand what Mr. Ward- man refers to when he says "He is told that in works of this nature, that is, municipal works, it Is customary to pay 5 per cent discount. Now if correct, who pockets the The inference, however, is quite plain ami to say the leaat It shows that Mr. S Wardinan has a very mean mind when he makes such inferences on no better grounds than mere hearsay. The matter of natural nitration has j been experimented with suuiulentljrto j satisfy anyone who has made it a! study and also those who are paying j the bills, to condemn any further ex? pertinents along these lines. The mechanical niters, such as we proposed are designed to overcome j the troubles that we have experienced f IE natural filter beds, by economically' washing the_filtering medium. Tn jny former letter the public were advised; that the extra expanse due to flltra-j tion would be five per cent on cost of water to the consumer. 3n; making this estimate all expenses oC< maintenance and operation as well asi interest on the money was taken consideration. It Is estimated that'; an additional increase of 5 per cent j will have to be made, filter or no til- j ter, so that the total extra charge water will be ten per cent. I In closing I wish to point out one! argument in of a filtration plant', second only to the matter of health.jj That is, if we keep on pumping and water into our system of they will eventually become" stopped up with silt and I would not dare to say what the cost of cleaning them Whiteman- performed the out would toe, but I am informed that they had to clean out their mains at Edmonton and the cost was some- where in the neighborhood of OuO.
