Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 4, 1910, Lethbridge, Alberta The Lethbridge Daily Volume III. Letlibridge, Alberta.Friday, March Number WATERWORKS SCHEME FOR THE PASS All the Towns Supp lied From Old Man River Blairmorc, Alta., March vil- lage councils of Thc Pass have initia- ted consideration of a big project looking to thc supplying of all the towns of the district with water from one huge system having its source at Crow's Nest Lake and with a pipe line laid from the lake all the way down The Pass. At present the water systems of all the towns are not only inadequate, but as the supply in each case is a mountain stream, the water is al- ways muddy and utterly undrinkablc during thc months and these two points have moved the council- lors of the different villages to seek j a remedy. It is considered that ut- ilizing the waters of Crow's Nest Lake supplies the only real remedy at hand. Certainly it would insure a supply for all time to come of the purest water, that would never be muddy or run any danger of becom- ing contaminated. The scheme originated between the members oi the councils of Blairmore and Coleman, growing out of the fact that Colcman's water supply is total- ly inadequate while Blairmore has none at all as yet. The two bodies had a conference on the subject and a preliminary investigation as to the feasibility of the scheme will be made after which, public meetings will be held probably in all the towns to t consider ways and means of carrying the plan into effect. The tentative programme is that the various villages desiring to enter into the scheme should bear an equal! share of the cost of constructing a dam across the source of the Old Man i River, the outlet of Crow's Nest j Lake, and a proportionate share of, the cost of the piping, each village defraying thc cost of laying thc pipej from thc next last distributing point j above it. By the adoption oi such measures, it is figirred, each village! should be able to stand the expense} while the culmination of the underUK The Government Is Sustained Bennett Took Back Statement Retracts Charge Against Hon.
