According to Contractor Landgraf
the work of laying, and connecting
the piping for the Kula Water
Works is going forward as rapidly
is is possible under the circum-
tnnees. Over six miles of piping
have been connected to date, con
sisting entirely of five-inch and six-
inch mains, and the work could go
ahead much faster but for the delay
in getting the pipihg delivered on
the line, and the delivery appears
to be a much more slower work than
what is thought of.
Contractor Landgraf says if the
piping could be delivered more ra
pidly on the line he could put on a
few more gangs of men and the
ork of connecting could go ahead
simultaneously in several places
Inch will greatly hasten the day
ben the pure waters from the
Koolau side of the Haleakala moun
tain could be delivered to the thirsty
people of dry Kula.
It would take only seventeen
ays' work to connect up all the
piping now delivered on the line, so
Mr. Landgraf thinks, and rather
than go ahead and finish up the
work in sight ho employs hut two
angs of men, all that he could pro
fitably use for the time until i
greater Quantity of piping is deliv
ered on the ground.
Owing to tho nature of the ground
along the lino the hauling of piping
as been very' slow work and Contrac
tor. Landgraf thinks tho government
will have to give him an extension
of time, as under the circumstances
ic will not be in a position to com
plete the work within the estimated
time, and can hardly be expected
until all tho piping shall have been
delivered for the workmen to con
nect and lay in position.
The contractor when seen appear
ed to be in a very cheerful mood,
and does not appear to entertain
the last fear of his work on the pipe
lino a losing proposition. He is
perfectly confident of completing
the work within tiie time limit set
in his bid, if the piping were only
delivered in sufficient quantities to
justify him putting on a few more
gangs of men, which he would do if
there was more piping in sight.
With six miles of tho heaviest pip
ing connected fully one-third of the
work is completed, and all of it
within only twoj months of the time
when tho contractor began work,
which is certainly a very good show
ing. So the mountain of difficulties
which the contractor is supposed to
have gotten into by offering to do
tho work at a figure about one-half
of his competitors appear to be of no
very great shakes after all.
