People's Forum THE WATER PROBLEM Letlibridgt, May 1. .To the Editor: Uoar beg leave In encroach on your valuable to state my I views on our very Important water i iiuwUon. Briefly tlie nrat cure proponed for this trouble Is tlie filtration system. We hevo been told that they will stop the muddy water for 50 iveolcs In the i year, the other two weeks we wilt I have to drink our usual line of soup. This system will not stoy the re- currence of tlie typhoid. This plan is aatlajated to coat and I about tho only lU'smnent we hear in j.B f.vor 1.1 the chcapntiM of It and tliat It is the only system we afford. The city euiumifasionen; state that our present water plant in the: river bottom is juntt, no that spend-; to add to it Is throwing: away good after bad. We 1 cannot alford that kind of cheapness It la too dear In Ions run, I The second plan is tlin gravity item. TMs is a proposal to j water, from the head-waters of the! St. Mary's river by pipe lines to the city. The flrat objection to thin plan j if. the cost. Wo have this year a tax i j rato of 31 mills which la quite enonsh. I to Mid n debt of on tils present debt Is, you are pretty sale i in saying, impossible. Mr. Blanch-; ard a former city engineer stated in a recent letter to the Herald Hint wo j would need a settling basin or filtra- j ,tion plant with this system, so that i the above sum would not be enough, i We have then the question as to whether the St. Mary's-would sunplv sufficient water for our future needs I as it is a stream that is used, for ir- j rigation purposes. We cannot spend a large sain like the above on a i illation. We must ho absolutely j sure that there Is plenty of water j there for our futura needs no matter; what they may j There is a third ulurnative that Is beitsr than either of the above sys- iwna. Briefly It is this: i Got the co-operation of the Horn-; iiiion and ''Provincial governments, .o2y I anil all the towns and cities in the i south country (as they all have tlie i 3 i same trouble) the Dominion govern- f I ment to set aside a reserve in the mountains near Crow's Nest lake i aud including the lake'to form a res- ervoir.
