WHAT THE STATE COMMISSION SAYS AROUT OUR WATER WORKS SYSTEM Some time ago the Rotary club of Wausau secured the services of well known engineers to make a report on our city watoi works, at a large cost which was met Iv subscriptions from our business men. Avery exhaustive report was furnished telling what should be done to give the city a pure, clean water supply and adequate fire protection, but the cost to make the desired changes would amount to up wards of $300,000. This report was turned over to the city council for consideration and it was in turn sub mitted to the state railroad commis sion for its opinion. The mayor, the past week, received a long communica tion from the commission which really gives no valuable ideas on the situa tion. That is, the commission did not seem able to state definitely what should be done to give us the relief for which we are seeking. All inter ested have known for the past twenty five years that there was a growth in our system produced by a large per centage of iron in the water supply; they have also known that in order to get relief it would be necessary to se cure a supply of water that was free from iron or so little iron that it would not produce the growth We also knew that the mains should De cleaned out. The question is, what shall be done? The Chicago engineers have told us what to do. Perhaps, they can eliminate some of the unnecessary things and bring the cost down to fit the'pocketbook of the city. The advice' from the commission amounts to about this: Hire a competent engineer to get out detailed plans of the situation. Increase the capacity of the water supply wells. Better treatment of the water to pre vent the growth of crenothrix. Strengthen the distributing system. Mechanical cleaning of the present mains.
