GREAT DECEEASE IN CIT I
WATER CONSUMPTION SHOWN
In view of the inadequacy
of the city's filter plant to handle
jn a perfect manner all the water
that is used, evidence of a permanent
variation in the figures of the water
works superintendent showing the
amount of water that is being con
sumed continues to be of interest.
The capacity of the filter plant is
well known to be from 2,000,000 to
2.500,000 gallons daily, while the rate
of consumption is from a third to a
half more. A comparison of the
amounts used last year and this
demonstrates the effect of several
causes upon the amount of water
used and wasted in the city. Last
year in a very dry and hot season the
consumption ran up well to an aver
age of 4,000,000 gallons daily for the
summer months till August. Then it
ran over 4,000,000 gallons. This year
. i :..4.l
a cool anil wet summer nas
in reducing the consumption so that
during the month of August, when
the figures were the highest, the av
erage rate was 3,336.000 gallons.
Waterworks Superintendent Plumb
Bancroft attributes the reduction m
consumption also to the increased
use of meters and the repairing of
faulty mains. Then he figures that
the "slippage," or the 'amount of wa
ter that falls back through the effect
of worn valves. in the pump, is on
the increase, so that it may now have
reached as high as 10 per cent of the
entire amount of water pumped.
There is no way to test this loss
and, as there is considerable work
connected with making the repairs,
while the pump has to be put out of
commission for the time being, the
job has been' put off. The amount of
water used by a city is always figur
ed from the capacity of the pump
and the number of strokes in a given
time. Where the "slippage" is con
siderable this is obviously mislead
ing. It is customary under ordinary
circumstances to deduct 5 per cent
from the total amount figured up for
this sort of waste, but this custom
has never been followed here.
The waterworks superintendent has
figured out the amount of water that
was pumped to put out the big fire
at the Weyerhaeuser & Denkmanii
yards a couple of weeks ago. The
pump was run for a period of 7 hours
and 5 minutes and the total amount
of water pumped direct from the
river into the city mains in that time
was 1,650,990 gallons. The pump
worked against an average pressure
of 100 pounds per square inch and
for a tune it was as high as 110
