The section is 2? asiles long and has a. face'or head of 101 feet ia that distance; It IB proposed to. use-j galleries or cribs at the intake, similar; to those in use here at Lethbridge to'remove silt from the j supply.

River not nave any direct as the source, I consider the best pro- position obtainable. To use either fork of the Old Man River as a source I would consider objectionable, owing to the number of towns draining into ;their watersheds.. I Other Suggestions -Oilier suggestions have been made 'to utilize certain -reservoirs south'and southwest or Raymond which could be filled from the -Irrigation system and pipe from either one of the'fi'eyihio Even if the .necessary reservoir site and -water could be ob- tained 1 would consider a large stag- nant reservoir an objectionable source I of supply in the hot weather..-.; Further, there is great doubt wi-stler such o, system could be constructed for a corresponding water delivery for any less than the route proposed from the Belly River. Attached to the report will be found (1) Map showing proposed route and possible variations of same. (2) Estimates of cost of four propo- sitions applicable to route of present preliminary survey. (3) Table of esti- mated yearly costs, snowing forecast of probable pop.ulalior. of the city at slated periods from the present 4.0 requirements from time to time and comparative yearly cost of pumping system and of Gravity system to furnish the sup- piy required at the various stages of the city's growth at the rate assumed. The -whole line is divided into two sections and for purposes of this re- port the section from Lethbridge, sta- tion 0 to Kipp, Summit Station 840 will he the "Lower Sec- and the section from Kipp Sum- mit Station'S40 to the Intake Station 2216 will be called tue "Upper Sec- tion." The "Lower Section" 16 miles long according to present preliminnry s.urvey and has a fall or head of 265 feet, giving a pragsure on the Leth- bridge males at the corner of 13th St. S. Aiid iuth Ave. 5. of 114 pounds, j On ;Ms "Lower Section1' are the two jcropajngH of the Belly TJJver, one near Lethbridge and one ten miles The lower section can probably be shortened about three miles, but this can fae done without In- i creasing the of the pipe on the greater part of the lower section or ot I cannot say without further sur- eys. tion with pipe on lower section. In this :way, the city would get the head: or pressure due only to the lower sec- tion, 265 feet or 114 ibs... .If, however, it is desired at- any time in the future the', sections be joined at the .Kipp S.ummit giving a static pressure on city mains of 157 Ibs, whet: no water was being drawn from the and corres- pondingly less depending upon amount of. water being drawn or velocity in pipp.- In proposition Nb.: 3 it is proposed to use wire wound wood stave pipe 24 inches in diameter :n sections with rteei clamp bands on the collars where head is less than 325 feet. At river crossings where the head is between 325 and 500 feet it is pro- posed to use 24 inch cast Iron pipe of sufficient strength. It must be definitely understood the survey .upon which the esti- mates are based is only a preliminary and while sufficiently accurate for the purpose of this report it will be nec- essary to examine by further surveys all the varieties possible in the de- tails of the route so as to arrive at proposition. It is thought that the installation of the proposed gravity system would ive the city much better fire protec- tion and consequent reduction of firo insurance rates. I have asked the secretary of the fire underwriters for some idea of the amount of reduction we might expect were such a pipe line constructed but have not as yet heard from him. This annual saving will increase with our increases in population and probably at a rate proportionate with the estimated cost of water dellrcry under the "pumping system." .f% j r?
