The clerk read the following communi
cation from the waterworks superintend
ent: "I wish to call the attention of the
members of the city council in regard to
tbe water consumption and our pumping
capacity, and tbe necessity of making ar
rangements for getting another pumping
engine. Tbe consumption of water has
increase! over 509.UUU gallons per day
more than last year. We are pumping
ow about 2.70O.0UO gallons per day and
at times during tbe day we ate pumping
at the rate of 2.5HJ,(JO0 per day and as
tbe guaranteed capacity of the quadruple!
engine is 3 000,(XH) gallons per day, it
don't leave us in very good condition for
fire purposes. Tbe capacity of tbe old
Holly pumping engine when sew was
only 2.000. 0'JO gtilloas per day. If any
thing should happen to tbe quadruples
engine, which is liable to huppen at any
time, tbe old pump would not near keep
up the supply, for domestic purposes.
This increased consumption is caused by
the addition of 100 new customers and
tbe eleciric street cur plant. When the
street car pUnt was first tixuring ou using
city water tbey calculated on using about
50,000 gallons per day and tbey are usicg
now over 300,000 gallons per "day. We
have been going on extending our water
mains and getting additional consumers,
but have heen doing nothing to increase
our pumping capacity nntil it is not safe
to put it cfl any longer, and as it takes
six months to get a pump after the con
tract has been le', you cannot commence
to make arrangements any too soon.
