He said the problem a pretty Well under control. Quot if you live in Skeaton you probably have noticed red water coming out of the facet once in a while a Lucy said. A the reason this happen is that the water a Active and reacts on the Metal surface of the water lines causing a build up of Lucy said to combat the problem a caustic soda an Alkali is used to form a protective coating on the water lines this Alkali renders Active water inactive. A sine the Firat of february we have had several complaints a Lucy said referring to the red water. A a we be had it pretty Well whipped in the last month or a new study by the Federal Bureau of water Hygiene has come up with the disquieting disclosure that Many City Witer systems Are not properly equipped to Cope with growing amounts of pollutants which find their Way into water supplies. Lucy said the Sikeston water Plant has a filler process and chlorination process to get rid of pesticides although none have been found in the Skeaton water Supply. He said the water Supply does not have any viruses or Metal traces. A this problem viruses Metal traces would come Only when water is supplied by River or an open Reservoir a Lucy said. He said the Sikeston water Supply is monitored on three meters. One meter registers the raw water from the Well to the Home. A the Only test for pollutants would be chemical Laboratory tests a he said. Lucy said thought had been Given to stepping up water treatment facilities. He said one step taken has been to increase the capacity of the Plant by changing from a Sand filter which gave three Gallons per minute per Square foot of filter area to a zeolite Green Sand filter which would increase the water flow to four and a half Gallons per minute per Square foot of filter area. He said the new filter is More or of a Fine Fluffy filter. A we have also built another Well to add More Well capacity. This gives about 5,000 Gallons per minute capacity. This adds 1,500 Gallons per minute More than we had making a total of 5,200 Gallons per minute that members of City Council voted yesterday to extend time to see mor Cable to of Sikeston inc., to begin operations of Cable television begin.
