Although A Diver Has Made A Close Examination

Although a diver has been at work for the past four days, the source of the leak in the water works intake pipe has not been disvovered. On the second day of the examination of the pipe, some bolts were found loose in a ball joint, but when these were tightened, the leakage was not much diminished. On Friday afternoon, the diver completed his examination of the inner 1,300 feet of the pipe.

A meeting of the water works committee was held on Saturday morning, and it was decided to make a test of the valve 1,300 feet out, and see if the leakage is there. The valve will be opened and closed. If that does not reveal the source of the leakage, Superintendent Hewitt will connect a larger pipe to the pump to force more water through the intake. Then the diver may be more successful.
