L'OUNTiY CLUB LAKE
JIEGINS TO FILL UP
Water Turned Into Lake and Svini.
mers' Paradise 'will Soon be Hleady.
Contrary to earlier exipectations,
work on the dam at the Bois Terre
country club progressed so rapidly
last week that it was possible to turn
water into the lake 'F0riday. The lower
)art of the lake has already begun to
lli up at a rapid rate. An estimate on
,he time which will be required to fill
.he lake would tbe generally accepted
is a flight almost into the realms of
'ancy, but it is thought that not less
tan two weeks will be required for
the water to reach a level high enough
to go over the spill-way. Bathers, It
is understood, will not ibe allowed to
go into the water before it reaches a
The success of the filtration system
ised in clarifying the water before it
enters the lake, local observers re
mark, may lead to -a valuable applica
Lion of the sgme system 'o water sup
ply plants of cities and towns. As has
ilready been stated in these columns,
the club management applied the tile
ralnage idea or its more economical
iubstitute, the so-called "blind ditch"
scheme, so well known to -farmers, in
clarifying the water before it enters
the lake. Ordinary terra cotta p!pe
was laid above a dam at the head-wa
ters of the lake and earth .thrown over
the pipe. The water is allowed to flow
Dver the earth and trickle down into
the piping through the joints, the wa
ter being filtered by the natural pro
cess. Adoption of the idea was in the
nature of an experiment, according to
reports, 'but the success has already
been -beyond exipectations, the water
emptying into the lake being clear and
sparkling. The real test, of course, is
expected to come after a heavy down
pdur of rain. W. R. McCuen, chair
man of the local waterwork and elec
tric light commission, snid the other
day that the same ysstem may be ap
plied to clarifying water for local con
sumption, doing away with the con
siderable expense of a mechanical
settling basin. He said that the com
mission already had the idea under
consideration and would watch the
permanent results of the country club
plan with much interest.
Many visitors to the upper dam of
the lake, where the filtration Is done,
have been curious to know where the
little ipipe of cool, clear and sparkling
water comes from which is found just
at the %base of the dam on its lower
side. Col. "Bluff" ("u" pronounced
long) Blakely, superintendent of the
club grounds, took a' few minutes ofl
frein his arduous labors a day or tw<
ago to explain that the , ipe came fron'
a very cool spring long known to the
people of the surrounding country
which happened to be located righi
under the dam itself. Before the dair
was built, he said, a concrete wall wak
built over the spring and a pOpe, thc
same pipe seen by the Visitors, wai
laid from the spring to a point lbelow
the dam itself. Before the summer
bathers begin to splash anxl swim hi
the lake 'below, he said, he hoped t<
have the pipe continued down as far aE
the popular gatherIng 'iplace of th(
bathers, where those who do not drini
out of the lake itself in their efforts tc
sim may qluench their thirst from a
sweeter source. Taps of the wvaten
pipe may also .be made in the dressing
rooms along the lake front.
