Silver Creek System I : 4
Is Not to Be Removed
SILVERTON, Ore., July 7.
(Special to The Statesman.) Re
moval of the water system on
Silver creek was found inadvisable
by the water commission as not
enough pressure could be ob
tained from the Ablqua river,
alone. in case of fire. It was de
cided short time ago to remove
the (Silver creek systembut, as
this is not possible, a chlorine
plant will be installed there as
well as on the Ablqua. Following
a recent test of water which
showed contamination at the In
takes it was thought that a chlor
ine j plant at Abqiua would be all
that would be sufficient.; Too lowJ
pressure, however, makes plants
on both streams necessary.
