Jack b Graham who is in charge of the project results have been far from satisfactory. A Otheree to always a Chance a says or. Graham a that Well water could be found which might supplement our present drinking Supply. It is unlikely however that ground water Ever would be available in sufficient Quantity to entirely replace surface water ?� the main trouble or.
