REGULAR SESSION LAST EVEN
ING CONSIDERS REPORT OF SU
PERINTENDENT BERGSVICK ON
CONSTRUCTION OF DAM.
The Water Commission met last
night In regular session. J. Q. A.
Bowlby occupleJ the chair. Messrs.
J. Q. A. Bowlby, C. J. Trenchard, F.
A. Fisher and H. G. Van Dusen were
present Messrs. -S. Elmore, A. Brlx
and C S. Wright were absent.
After the reading and appoval of
the minutes of the last meeting, the
clerk's and treasurer's reports and
that of the superintendent were read
and placed on file.
The report of Superintendent Bergs
vick called attention to the fact that
the contractor repairing the lower
mains had left off the covers of the
big gates of the distributing system.
The matter was referred to the city
The bills and recommendations of
the auditing committee were approved.
Communications from the Lorenson
Logging Company and J. Q. A. Bowl
by were ordered placed on file. The
request for return of over-charge by
the Tongue Point Lumber Company
The request for reduction of charges
for the past month by Sanborn's can
ney was granted to the extent of $10.
The distributing pipe froze and burst
during the recent freeze and the wa
ter flowed freely on the wrong side of
the company's meter, which charged
the lost water to the cannery.
The application of J. C. Des Graces
for the position of superintendent,
made vacant by the resignation of
Lars Bergsvlck, was read and placed
on file. Mr. Des Granges, who had
come down from Seattle to be pres
ent, was examined. No definite ac
tion was taken, but Mr. Des Granges,
who leaves town this morning will be
notified of the Commission's decision
as soon as made.
The report of Superintendent Lars
Bergsvlck on the contemplated dam at
Bear Creek was given.
This stated that the nature of the
ground was different from what had
been expected and the cost in con
struction of the dam would be much
higher than has been estimated. There
is no solid rock for a base, as was
expected, and the foundation will have
to be extended down until It rests
upon a strata of blue clay. The exact
distance from the surface of this clay
is not known as yet, and makes the
estimates somewhat vague. No solid
rock for a masonry wall was avail
able and concrete would have to be
Mr. Bergsvlck stated that a dam 85
feet high and penning up 210,000,000
gallons of water, would cost between
$90,000 and $100,000. A reservoir hold
ing 100,000,000 gallons would cost half
The larger dam would extend fifteen
or twenty feet below the surface and
rest upon the blue clay sub-soli. Be
cause of the unstable ground the con
crete wall would have to be heavy,
about 25 feet thick at the base and
eight feet thick at the top.
It was suggested that, as the city
requires only a hundred million gal
lons reservoir at present, but would
certainly need a larger one after a
while, that the dam re so built that
though only containing a hundred mil
lions it rculd be built un when need
ed to contain the two and a quarter
millions. This would cost about $60,
000. The Idea was adopted by the
board to the extent of requesting the
superintendent to draw up plans in
accordance with it.
: Owing to the advanced estimate in
the cost of the proposed dam, the
Commission is divided as to whether
it would not be more advisable to con
struct a larger reservoir near town
The present one at the city nark Is
ijot very large and might prove too
small In case of fire. It was pointed
jut that with a larger reservoir near
town the iii'cossity of shutting off wa
ter nt such times as the past frcox
would be at least partially obviated,
The only other business of import
ance transacted was the acceptance
of a 2-Inch ntnln owned by 'Mr. Fin
vel. The Patrol, Electro and other
boats have been using it until the
recent freeie, when It burst. Upon
the formal transfer of the pipe the
break will be repaired by Superin
tendent Lars Bergsvlck.

time I was taken down with this
