JADWIN DEFENDS LAKE DIVERSION Says Water Flow Essential tor Great Lakes-to-Gulf Inland Waterway. Br the Associated Press. CHICAGO. March 28—Diversion of Lake Michigan water is essential for the Great Lakes-to-Gulf inland water way under construction. Maj. Gen. Edger B. .Tadwin, chief of Army Engi neers. testified today at the lake level hearing before Charles Evans Hughes. Gen. Jadwin said he believed that a fi.ooo cubic feet a second diversion would be necessary after the sewage treatment program of the Chicago sani tary district has been completed. The hearing is to determine how long Chicago shall have to comply with the Supreme Court decree to cease use of lake water for carrying sewage toward the Mississippi. Recalled By States’ Counsel. Gen. Jadwin was recalled today by counsel for States surrounding the lakes to answer the question: “How much diversion is necessary for nav igation purposes on the Chicago River?” The States are represented at the hear ing to see that the use of water for sewage disposal continues for a min imum time. Disregarding sewage pollution, no di version would be necessary for local navigation in the Chicago River alone, Gen. Jadwin said. For the through route, however, lakes to gulf, a diversion oi 1,000 to 10.000 cubic feet a second would have to be arranged, in his opin ioll - . “The question has been asked whether 1.000 cubic feet a second of lake water pumped into the North branch at Wil- . mette. and 2.000 cubic feet from the South side branch would prevent any nuisance to navigation," Gen. Jadwin said. “The answer is that in my opinion it would prevent a nuisance to naviga tion in the Chicago River provided it were introduced into the branches and other forks at the head of navigation thereof; that treatment plants purify sewage approximately 85 per cent and that a gate or other barrier be placed to prevent back flow from the sanitary canal of the undiluted effluent from the plants discharging into the canal." It is the disposal of the 15 per cent of the sewage, not cared for by the sludge plants the city is building, that demands some diversion of lake water, the sanitary district representatives claim. Amount Undetermined. Gen. Jadwin in estimating the amount of water necessary for the navigation said “an undetermined amount, some where between 1.000 and 10,000 cubic feet.” “You mean." said Mr. Hughes, “that it is undetermined because Congress has not yet prescribed how much would be permitted?” “I had that in mind, but I was think ing of the Government projects between Chicago and the Illinois River, which are about to be constructed to improve navigation on the Illinois. This will re quire a diversion of 4.167 cubic feet per second.” The testimony of Gen. Jadwin has been accepted by Mr. Hughes as au thoritative and representing the final opinion of the War Department. For this reason the general’s appearance was requested today by the Lake State’s counsel at the final hearings on the lake level question in Washington April 15.
