the city was to continue to enjoy m
adequate water supply.
When asked about the water situ

immediate danger of a shortage in

the recent heated period, the wain

consumption readied its peak during
the evening when property own. i
were sprinkling their lawns. Low
water pressure during this period, ae
cording to Mr. Gallagher, was due mu
to a shortage of water at the wells
hut rather to inadequate water niiiius
leading from the water plant to i:i
Two mains, one f ,n< !i and one 1:’
inch, now conned the city with the
plant and these two mains are uu
able to supply the city during the
peak periods. Mr. Gallagher states
that additional wells are not neces-
«»ry. but lliut additional main ser
vice is the remedy.
