14000000 of gallons daily which being reduced with the sub sidence of water would empty the pool in 10 days Lastly no sluice will ever be needed The basin will not in any reason Â¬ able time require dredging out ami when it does if evor I know it never will a little scouring in the very channel would do no earthly good it wouldvhuve to be emptied und then the sediment carted out But sir 45 inches a vear is our average rain fall and so far as ascertained by careful observations on the elfeets of floods I find that 4 inches of rain cansed a deposit of one eighth of an inch of sediment over the bottom thus 45 inches would yield say Ik inches yearly which in 100 years would raise the bottom 12 feel still leaving 22 feet of water below the lowest level to which the pool will evr be reduced So far as the influence of leaves c are concerned none need be allowed to enter the basin if they do it will never be in sufiicient quantities to appreciably impregnate the water and if impregnating the water it is a question to be determined by sanita rians whether the great preponderance of the cedar element in this case would or would not be of any disadvantage to the water All other questions 1 answer in a word storage reservoirs exist the world over and are yearly growing in favor The only two questions to be solved are first the quantity and character of the water supply and socondly how to retain it Respectfully Â¬ Â¬ Granted sewer running west from Slate Prison or take immediate steps to abate nuisance Referred Permission to build blacksmith shop on Blanton street near Fort Hill
