PIPE NEAR TOWN
Bull Run Project Will Be Completed
as Far as Gresham this Winter
BIG JOB WILL BE RUSHED
Time • Saving Methods Now Used
Are Great Advantage over those
Used on Former Line--Will
Mean Much for Gresham
Tbe claim is made by the pipe line
contractors that water will be flowing
in the new pipe within six months and
present indications are that the Schaar-
Batcher company will make good. The
string of big pipe along the line almost
within the town of Gresham is a re
minder that tbe work is progressing
The digging of the ditch, which is
mostly in the hands of sab-contractors,
has approached to within about three
miles of town on tbe east. It has been
intimated that it is the purpose of tbe
company to complete the work now-
under way, so far as weather conditions
will permit, and then bend all their
effort« to completing the line between
Gresham and Portland daring the
rainy winter weather. It is believed
that rain will nut interfere with their
work materially through this section
where roads are good all winter.
Between Gresham and Lusteds tbe
ditch is dug for more than half tbe
distance and pipe has been laid and
riveted for about two miles. Between
I nwUwi* and tMalt Bun poBtoTTler TTW
ditch is nearly all dug ami for more
thau half this distance the pipe is iD
place. Between Bull Run and tbe
headworks tbe excavating is done for
about two-thirds tbe distance and pipe
has been hauled for most of the dis
tance. Large crews of men are work ng
on these various d visions and the haul
ing for practically all tbe line east uf
Gresbaui will be completed by Decem
It will certainly mean disagreable
conditions in Gresham witb some of
of the main streets torn up by excava
tions, dooryards made into dirt plies
and pipes strewn along the way. There
is reason to believe, however, that the
company will not make it more incon
venient for the citizens than it can
help. There is no way out of it. It
means employment for many workmen
all winter and incidentally a water sys
tem ior Gresham in the near future.
The process of laying and riveting
the pipe is most interesting. Those
living in Gresham who desire to see it
will have tbe opportunity soon, some of
them right at home.
The laying of the old pipe line ia
remembered by many people who lived
here at tbe time. Tbe methods used
then were very different from those
now used. When the first pipe line
was laid tbe pipe was all hauled from
Portland where it was riveted by hand.
Now it comes ready made shipped di
rect from the east to Gresham Tbe
auto-truck has superseded the ox team,
and tbe pneumatic riveters now do
what waa formerly done laboriously by
Tbe capacity of the new pipe will be
45,000,(> j 0 gallons daily, twice that of
the old pipe. Thia will give Portland a
supply sufficient for 600,000 people.
Surely a little of this can for a while be
spared to the municipality of Gresham,
especially as the town is willing to pay
