Tliia Is for the nwin con- tract. We'.'nre at. the present time' hauling cinders which will the side of the he placed in the towage filters when constructed. This Is Vefne done by our own teams when they are not occupied at other work. The specifications and plane far the paving under this year's Local Improvement, are well completed, and the work: advertised, so chat tenders can be receiver] on the 27th. Re condition present intake and filtration of water supply: In accordance with the .resolution of the Council at its meeting- of No- I beg -to hand you here- with a preliminary report, dealing with the present intake and the filtru- tion of the city -water supply. At "the outset the possibility of a gravity water supply cannot be ig- nored, and filtration, if decided upon ihould be planned, BO that the city would suffer the least loss in case of change In'source supply. The present water works intake con -Ists. of a crib SO feet square with closed top and open sides sunk into JERR9.

I do not think that the first type of filters would be as suitable as the second or third and I would like fur- ther opportunity to investigate the latter two types beiore" making a re- commendation for eittier. Operation of rapid sand and pres- sure filters is hastened by putting a small quantity of aluminum sulphate in solution with the water to coag- ulate the sediment, and the flltor re- moves all sediment and color from wWch tributing system, being largely in wooden mains. If filters are not decided upon, the water supply could he treated tem- porarily with liypochlorite of lime, which would harmful fact- eria, but no sediment. A Wise Suggestion At a recent meeting of the Hoard of Health. I suggested that; a provin- cial bacteriologist be appointed to spend his time in the larger (munici- palities of Southern Alberta, and that the expense lie divided In suitable pro portion among such municipalities, and a portion, if possible, be borne by the government. Our water supply could then be properly analysed. The present ban-hazard way' of analysis is presem u. the. water, 97 per cent, of harmless ot no use, and aa one of bacteria, and 100 per cent, o' disease germs. The filter beds are cleaned by re- versing the flow of water through the beds for a short time each day or concrete pipe extend! to the suction week. The cost of coagulant would well at the-pumping station.
