THE PLAN SEEMS FEASIBLE It Is Believed Tfcnt It Can Be Com pleted for Less Than n Million Dollars Will Insure an Adequate "WiUer Supply Captain Black' llecouuueudntloiis. The prediction is made by one in au thority that there is a large probability that this Congress will take up and carry through a provision for the com pletion of the immense project of the Lydecker tunnel and the Howard Uni versity distributing- reservoir addition to the District water supply system which the public at large has been in the .habit of believing- one of the monu mental exhibitions of fraud and incom petence 6f modern times. This project has been the subject of long consultations and very serious consideration between the District Commissioners and the District Con gressional committees of Congress re cently. On Saturday Capt- Black, the En gineer Commissioner, was at the Capi tol nearly all day, with llgures, plans, suggestions, and prophecies for the people of the Houe most interested. There will be more conferences and more expert testimony during the ses bion. It is known that many Congress men bebide the District Commissioners are heartily in favor of completing the work. It has been decided that a grave mis take is being made in allowing the tun nel and reservoir to remain idle and useless, wheie there is a great need of them, and, further, it lias been decided thatthe-cost of putting them into suc cessful working order wtfuld be com paratively small, and by far the cheap est method of giving the District an ample water supply system. Everybody knows that after the ex penditure of an immense amount of monev this distributing reservoir and this four-mile tunnel from the receiv ing reservoir above Georgetown were abandoned in disgust in 1SS9, with the general verdict that the whole plan was impracticable and that the whole of the money spent had been lost for ever. It was said that the rock through which the tunnel was built was rot ten and would never hold water. It was suid that all of the work had been done in a slovenly and grossly incom petent manner by the contractors and the engineers in charge. And finally it vas charged that there were absolute and ineradicable defects in the project. This opinion has undergone a radical change since that time, and experts say that for less than a million dollars both the tunnel and the reservoir could be put into practical working order, that there is an absolute necessity for the reservoir and that theie is no other way of conveying the water to the res ervoir so -economically as the tunnel. The utility of the lservoir, if in use, can be easily understood even by one not familiar with our water system. It would double our reserve water supply and it would make the immediate sup ply mucli more plentiful; in fact, en--tirely adequate at all times. It would quell the periodical cry for water from Capitol Hill and other high parts of the city, and give the people of those neigh borhoods always plenty to drink and bathe with. Perhaps even more im portant than that, potentially it would give enough reserve water to last twelve days instead of six, as under the present conditions. Capt. Black, the Engineer Commis sioner, is very stiongly in faor of the completion of the project. He said to a Times reporter: "Thera can be no question of the absolute ne cebsity of the Howard University res ervoir for an adequate "water supply for the city. That the plan is entirely feasible, and that it would be the least costly of any that would be successful, is beyond doubt. T am against ever at tempting the work by contract again, however." Capt. Black yesterday transmitted to Congress a report as to the necessity for the completion of the Lydecker tunnel. When he went before the House Sub-Committee on District Appropria tions last Saturday pleading for the tunnel and also for use of water meters as a remedy for the insufficient water supply of the District, he was asked by Mr. Grout to present figures to dem onstrate the need of these improve ments and also to show that the tunnel and the prevention of waste would remedy the lack of water. The report says: "The completion of the reservoir and of some means of filling it will bring the source of supply for all practical purposes about four miles nearer to the Capitol than it is at present and w ill produce a correspond ing increase of pressures at ill points to the south and east of the reservoir, and indeed its effects will reach to the west nearly half way between the two reservoirs.
