CALLS ANSWERED 200 0 ALLOWS PER CAPITA. Abilene'i Oeiiertnt W.ier Allowance Sana Sptingi Flow Inoreaung. For til Reflector. On the 10th day of July, 1S89. In company with Dr. C. W. Brooks, we visited Snuil Springs, lour tulles west of Ab'lene, lor tin purpose of measur ing the nulflow " waer, nud t" de terrnice its availability as a source of supply for the city of Abilene. On examination aid measurement we found that a omss section of the dis charge stream contained a superllcial arcs of 144 fquare inches or exactly I one Kill are. dot Bv the ii mi a I mctn ods we fduud a velocity t.f current ; sufticient to carry two. cubic dot of water past a given point iu one i-ec-1 ond of time. With this data m a. basis fur computation we determined the output at 1,296,000 gallons for a, day of 21 hours. ; T. Itlfll .U.. .iD,.nt Dtrctant fit WOfflf I ,1U,0r..7. works was constructed under tne supervision ol Mr. Pierton, an emi nent civil engineer of Sew York city, by whom the capacity of the rpring was again measured. In this be was assisted by Messrs. Stambaugh and i Rogers as manipu'ators of the stop , watch, to whom this duty was as-. signed in deference to their sporting proclivities and because of their large experience and great skill In reading seconds. The result of this test measurement was substantially a ver ification of our report in 1889 On the 31st day of July, 1901, we again visited the spring and pumping station. In conversation with the engineer in charge, Mr. St. Peter, we were informed that during the exces sively hot weather be was pumping from 700,000 to 800,000 gallons of water per day. Being eurious to know how much surplus water was running to waste we again measured cross section of the waste channol and found a superficial area of 73 square inches, or exactly one-balf the area revealed in 1889. Assuming that velocity of current is the same now as then, it is evident that a vol ume of water equal to one-half the lischHrge in 1889 is wasting into the Smoky Hill river; or, In other wbrds, the city of Abilene is consum ing on 3-balf the capacity of the spring as determined in. 1891. But as the volume of discharge was considerably Increased by development in the con struction of a 80 foot well around and over the spring, it is probable that the estimate ol 800,000 'gallons as re ported by the engineer in charge, is 'more nearly the correct consumption. This would give to the citizens of Abilene a pro rata of about 200 gal lons per capita lor every man, woman and child in the city certainly a most, generous allowance when we consider that In many congested -!: fin (..lUra la tha maYlmnm V1UC5 UV KUlluuo to -"v i A peculiarity of Sand Springs is Its uniformity of flow.
