purpose of supplying American Fork
citizens with power and lights.
It Is said thnt tho site Is Ideal, close
in and cnpnblo of genorntlng enough
hprsopowor to supply UiIh city with
nil tho power necessary for years to
come. Another posslblo feature of tho
project la tho building of u cement
conduit from tho mouth of American
Fork canyon to tho Alpine rond,
through which nil tho water of Lchl
and American Fork could bu con
ducted. This would save four to six
second feet of water now lost by
seepage and evaporation. At tho rate
being charged by tho Provo River
Reservoir company this water nlono
would bo worth from $3G,000 to $54,000
and would help to defray tho expenses
of erecting tho plant.
