WATER PLANT 1
Clear Water Basin Leaking, Method
of Chemicalizing Water Anti
quated and Settling and
Filtering Easins Too Small
Milledgeville’s water plant is in
need of many improvements and en
largement is the opinion of the writer
after making a trip through the plant
with Mr. Chn*. Smith, the mon in
charge of the work, and after an ex
planation of the operation of the
A hitter controversy has been
started in the city council over the
water situation, one group contending
the water plant is incapcitated and in
need of repairs, and the other hold
ing that the plant is meeting the
needs of the city, and the expendi
ture of funds htere is unnecessary
and uncalled for. The representative
of the paper made a visit to the
plant and asked Mr. Chas Smith, who
has the operation of the plant in
charge to show us through and ex
plain the rituation to us.
The old plant that was purchased
from the American Pipe Co., has
been discarded and is no longer uwd.
The machinery and boilers in this
building are rusty and we suppose
have been left to decay.
The new plant is well constructed
and very good for the purpose for
which it was built. There is one
*ngle pump on the lower floor of
the building, with a capacity of about
three hundred thousand gallons a day.
The council has made provision to
add another pump, so that in the
event this single unit needs repair or
is burned out, a pump can be kept
The rhilorinator is a single unit
and according to Mr. Smith a very
delicate instrument nnd in the event
this should be damaged, all water
would have to be boiled until a new
instrument could be bought or new
parts secured. The present instru
ment is as good as can be bought, but
there is no provision made for a
break down -

when the plant is forced to over do
its capacity, which is the case about
nine months in the year. As long ns
the city uses only about three hun
dred thousand gallons per day the
water can be filtered through the re
quired time, but during the school
session, the water has to be forced
through in a few minutes.
The soda ash and .alum, two chemi
cals that are added to the water in
the process of filteraiion, are placed
in the muddy water well, the recep
tacle that recei* the water direct
from the creek. When asked why
the chemical were placed in this well
insteud of being .added as the water
flows into the settlnig basin, as is
the custom and pratice in all’ water
plants, Mr. Smith stated that if add
ed where it should, the chemical
would not remuin in the water long
enough to get the required action be
fore it was pumped into the stand
pipe and go into the mains. By
adding it in the muddy water basin
it is in the wuter about forty-fiv
minutse longer and the required
chemicul action is secured.
The clear water basin which
as u storage tank for the water ready
for the stand pipe, has a large leak
in it and is inneed of repair. Dur
ing flood season the clear water be
comes contaminated from the creek
water that comes through the sides.
The sewrage situation i» being re
lieved we were told, a survey from
the female camp having been complet
Mr. Smith stated that all of the
process of fillteration was a matter
of guess work, as there were no
gauges and he had to add the amount
of chemicals he thought necessary
but that there should be acurate
gauges so that he could increase or
decrease the chemicals .added to the
water, according to the needs.
A*- we see it, the present plant is
alright a* far as it goes, but it was
built to fulfill the immediate needs,
with no thought of the future, and
the time hus come when the city muyfc
look to an expansion program.
The money, we are, told, is not
available, but <*ome plan should be
made with a view of undertaking
