Declines to Give Opinion as to Pref

City Clerk M. T. Rudgren has re

vey a letter replying to the cit-;n in
quiry relative to the use of artesian
wells as a source of city water sup
ply. .' The writer, Frank W. DeWolf.
acting director of the survey, de
clines to give an . opinion as to the
preference between artesian water
and river water and states that he
can give no opinion as to the quality
of the artesian water He says, how
ever, that It , is "quite certain that
artesian water in sufficient quantity
could be obtained if it was deemed
desirable to obtain water in his way."
It will be remembered that the
director, of the .state water survey,
in his letter, stated that the artesian
water would be very unsuitable for
drinking or manufacturing purposes,
and that it would require 100 wells
such as the Mitchell & Lynde well
to supply 3,000,000 gallons daily.
' Blvr la the Brut.
Mr. ' Bartow also gave it as his
opinion that the fiver water would
be the more satisfactory. The coun
cil has never given very serious con
sideration to the artesian well Idea,
and inquired of the two state 6ur
veys merely to determine whether its
attitude was justified. The city clerk
will present Mr. De Wolf's letter to
the council Monday. It will in all
probability be referred to the new
council." The present council has
already passed the entire filter prob
lem 'along, to the new body which
takes up its work in May.
