Cistern Filters Do Not Remove
Cisterns that are' properly con
structed and receive rain water
from roofs generally afford water of
good sanitary quality, but if water
of doubtful quality is stored in cis
terns the supply is of course not
safe for domestic use. Filters used
in connection with cisterns are of
value in making the water clear but
are generally of no value in remov
ing disease germs. Many cisterns
are divided into two parts by a
brick wall, the water being admit
ted into one compartment and
drawn from the other. In such cis
terns the water passes through the
brick and in that way is improved
in clearness and color, but not gen
erally in sanitary quality. (U. S.
