The city council, realizino that th
present witer supply was inadequaU and
mat other sources soonoror later would
have to be secured, spent several hvinHrH
dollars on the Folk springs up Mill can
yon. Thess springs, according to th r.
porU submitted to the council, flow about
au.OOQ gallons in 24 hours, sufficient for
present domestic purposes but not enouoh
during the irrigation season. The city,
umii we nrst of November had an op
tion on these sprines for $3000. nH k.h
not this same property frequently changed
iioiiuj un a his oi rom 5U0 to $1200
no doubt the city would have purchased
the property, but the council thought it
was something in the nature of a holdup.
Many were in hopes that when the
Morgran laVe pwer aysUm was com
pleted, that this water could be used, and
the city was about to contract for this
water, but before doing so. Dr. Richard
son, the chairman of the water committee,
also of the .Board of Health, sent sample
of this water , to the state Board of
Health for analysis, and the report re
ceived this week, states that this water
is not sufficiently wholesome for citypur
poses. This leaves the question where it
has been for years. For. several years
the Folk springs and the Schilling springs
could give th city a pur and wholesome
supply tor nine montns m ins year, i ms
springs eould be conveyed into the city
reservoir for about $15,000; Water Sup
erintendent Oilman is of the opinion for
much less. Now if these claims could be
purchased for a reasonable sum,, the city
would be justified, as no doubt' these
springs wouldsupply u for the nex few
year, and if properly developed . the
present flow might be greatly increased,
but unless the city does purchase this
property, no private individual would think
of paying over $1500 for either of th
claims, and buyer are scarce at thi
price, . . ..
Just as soon a the owners of the
Schilling springs' thought the xity was',
seriously thinking of utilizing their springs. 1
they asked $6000 for them. The
council refused to further considor the
proposition, and the water question re
mains unsolved. It is the intention of thr
Grand Ronde Electric Company to bring"
the water of Rock creek into their Mor
gan lake reservoir. When this I accom
plished It may provide a pure supply and
If so the water supply of La Grande - wilP
be solved for all tim to come. : ,
