Above wo give a diagram of our
only sewer, running from the
asylum and penitentiary through
Court street to the river. The sewer
is but 15 inches diameter, and serves
tho state buildings named, also tho
stato house and is expected to be
used by tho four tiers of blocks lying
between Ferry and Center streets.
The dotted line3 represent tho main
sewer and laterals through Court
street and tho alley ways.
It will be seen that north of Court
there are three laterals running
through tho allies from Center to
Court, lying between Front and
Commercial, Commercial and Lib
erty and Liberty and High. South
of Court street there is but one
lateral, from State to Court through
alley between Front nnd Commer
cial. Another lateral Is needed
north of Court, between Church and
Cottage streets, to abate tho horrid
nuisance discussed elsewhere.
There should be added to this a
sewer through tho greater part of
Ferry street, and also through a
portion of Center street to bp ex
tended east as occasion demands.
By means of laterals running a
block north and south none would
be overtaxed, and six tiers of blocks
would bo accommodated, lying be
tween Trade and Marion streets.
There is great complaint of tho
numerous cesspools in tho central
part of the city. The general health
demands these sewers, as well a i
public economy and convenience.
