Meeting of
City Council
Court o: Revision Precedes
Regular Meeting
The council sat last Thursday
morning at 10 a. m. as a court of
revision to hear complaints against
assessments levied under the Local
Improvement By-laws N98. 94. 95,
and 96, the first being for the opening up of St. Paul Street through to
Bernard Ave., and the two latter
for cement and wooden sidewalks.
Mr. E. Weddell appealed against
the assessment on the south-east
portion of his property on the
ground that the opening up of St.
Paul Street was no improvement,
as it came too near his house. The
court, however decided that the
fact that the extension made a
corner lot of the property was sufficient improvement, and the appeal was not allowed.
Dr. B. F. Boyce .objected to being assessed for the cost .of the
new cement sidewalk where it,
crossed the ends of a private lane
which ran along the east of his
place in Bernard Ave., and out into
Richter Street south of Mr. Cooper's
house. The lane, however, had
never been deeded to the city, and
the court decided that until this
was done, Dr. Boyce was liable for
assessment under the by-law.
Dr. G. Moore, of Vancouver,
wrote, pointing out that he had
been assessed for a lot on St. Paul
Street owned by J. H. Middleton,
Mr. Middleton had also been assessed for a lot belonging to Dr.
Moore. The necessary corrections
were ordered to befiiadi?.       *
The court then adjourned..
Engineer's Report on
Local Sewerage Scheme
Favors Septic Tank System of Sewage Disposal  - Estimated
Cost of Sewers and Disposal Plant is $130,000.
Immediately after the Court of
Revision, the council assembled in
ordinary meeting, the Mayor and
Aldermen - Copeland, Cox, and
Leckie being present. .
The minutes were first read and
A formal motion was then passed
that Local Improvement By-laws
94, 95 and 96 be reconsidered and
finally passed.
By-law 97 was then introduced
and given a first and second reading. This provides for the extension of the date upon which the
rebate of one-sixth on the taxes
may be given to October 2nd.
The extra work in the municipal
offices, connected with the sidewalks and street opening by-laws
had made it impossible to get out
the tax notices on time. It was
therefore necessary to extend the
time given for payment.
Aid. Copeland, on behalf of the
Board of Works, reported having
examined Fuller Avenue and Wilson Street, the opening up and
grading of which had been requested by the residents. It would
take a considerable sum of money
he said, to place these streets in
fair condition.
The mayor suggested that there
might probably be a balance left to
the credit of the city of the money
raised for the opening of St. Paul
Street, Sutherland Ave., and Elliott
Ave., after these works had been
completed, and in that case it could
be used for the improvement of
Fuller Ave. and Wilson St.
This was agreed upon and the
meeting adjourned until Tuesday,
Sept. 5th at 10 a.m.
Mr. A. Day has just sold through
D. H. Rattenbury, 40 acres of hay
land to E. W. Powell, a real estate
broker of Port Hammond, B. C.
The property, which is about a
mile from the city, realized a little
over $6000.
It is a good sign and a sure indication of faith in the future of
the city when real estate men themselves turn purchasers. Mr. D. H.
Rattenbury has made several purchases during the week, including
five acres of orchard adjoining Aid.
Cox's property, from B. A. Moore-
house, the house on Bernard Ave.

Mr. H. Sydney Hancock, of
Vancouver, the consulting engineer
engaged some little time ago to
inquire into and report upon the
feasibility and cost of a sewerage
system for the city has submitted
his preliminary report. Mr. Hancock is an expert on matters
relating to sewage disposal and
has had a wide experience with
systems presenting ever greater
difficulties than Kelowna. The
report is too long to reproduce in
its entirety, but the following
extracts will give the gist of his
Mr. Hancock visited Kelowna
Tast May and made a detailed
inspection of the city and a study
of the problems affecting the installation of a satisfactory systerri.
He was assisted in the preparation of a topographical map of
the city by Mr. R. H. Parkin: on,
who took the necessary levels.
The chief obstacle to the installing of any sewerage system is of
course the flatness of the townsite.
At the eastern boundary an elevation of only 20 or 25 feet above
the lake is attained, and near the
lake an extensive strip lies af a
comparatively low level.
Discussing the particular system
suited to local conditions, Mr.
Hancock says:
There is no room for doubt that separate systems of sewers should be constructed
in Kelowna for the care of sewerage and
storm water, rather than a system that will
combine the functions for the following
chief reasons::—
(i.) As all sewage must be pumped and
treated  before \ discharging  into   the
.   lake, the presence of storm water adds
greatly to the cost of separation  and
purification, and  limits the efficiency
of the results attained,
(ii.) The capital cost of providing suffi.
cient pumping capacity for handling
storm water is prohibitive,
(iii.) Kelowna being in the dry belt the
construction of. a ato^m water system
can be postponed for many years and
a series of surface drains substituted.
The present ditches quickly dry after
rain  and  are  in  themselves   almost
sufficient for present requirements. —
(iv.) The elimination of storm water from
the sewers with its accompaniment of
mud, sand and street debris, permits
.the sewage to be carried at a considerably lower velocity and therefore on a
much flatter  grade  line, a matter, of
very vital importance considering the
topographical and sub-soil conditions
affecting this problem in your city.
Location of Disposal Plant.
The location of the Disposal Plant will
depend  very  largely  on  the  method of
disposal  adopted.    The  oldest  and first
method to  be  considered is that of the
direct application of the sewage^to land on
the sewage farm principal.   This method
will require a different site to that of any
other system.     As far as Kelowna is concerned it has the following disadvantages:
(i.) A suitable site for such a farm can
only be  obtained  on   the  low-lying
land adjoining the lake-near either the
North or South boundaries of the city.
In  neither case is the land suited  for
economical treatment, and a comparatively large acreage must be provided,
due to the presence of a saturated subsoil  within a  short  distance  of the
surface, and the generally non-porous
character of the stratum lying immediately beneath the surface loam.   By
choosing the best location available,
probably one acre of land would be
necessary to care for the crude sewer-
am from every 100 people in the city,
(ii.) Land   in   the vicinity of   Kelowna
naturally   commands  a   very   much
higher price   than ordinary agricultural land, because of the value 'of the
fruit and other crops it so abundantly
produces.    •
(iii.) A  sewage  farm  would  entail  the
carriage of  sewage  from  North  to
South,  or  vice   versa,  through   the
entire  length of the city, necessitating
a great depth of sewer at the sewage
farm—a most costly operation in such
a   subsoil—or  a  numerous series of
subsidiary pumping stations,
(iv) The expense of preparing the land by
under-draining will be very large in
this material.
_For the above reasons I consider it more
economical and effective to use some more
intensive system of disposal that   can be
carried on without offence in a very much
smaller  area.     Such a plant designed for
six times your present population can be
comfortably accommodated on a site not
exceeding two acres in extent.
Such works can be made free from
offence, and a comparatively small expenditure on shrubbery and ornamental design
will render the site unobjectionable to the
surrounding property.
Under these conditions such a site can
be located in the centre of your city with
I very great economy in  the cost of the
It was suggested to me on inquiring for
a central site that a portion of the park
might be used, and at present I see no
very serious objection to this course. I
was also informed that the task of securing any other plot of 'central land would
be both difficult and expensive. Consequently I have designed the system and
disposal plant with the idea of using the
park site, but would point-out as a firm
believer in the acquisition of as much land
as possible by every growing city, that an
effort should be made to secure some other
site in that vicinity. The day will probably come when your increased population
will begrudge the park space occupied by
the disposal plant if for no other reason
than it has been deleted from its dedicated
purpose. In case you are able to acquire
another suitable central site at a iea3on-
able price.it will not involve any serious
or fundamental change in the design, otherwise the park site will fully answer the
purpose for which it is required..
Having thus fixed the location of
a disposal plant the engineer goes
on to consider the design of a
pipe system for collecting the
sewerage from the various sections
of ihe city. In the design of. this
he is handicapped by the fact that
the principal business section is
only six feet above lake level and
the growing industrial district to
the north is only three feet. To
obtain a sufficient fall to drain a
large.mapped-out central area and
to bury the sewers at sufficient
depth to afford protection from
winter frost, it would be necessary
to go about three feet below the
level of the lake at the disposal
plant. The northern' and southern
low-lying areas of the city would
have to be treated separately, arid
subsidiary electrically-driven pumping stations installed to raise the
sewage after draining to their
respective sumps. In this way
one disposal plant could be made
to serve the whole city.
Owing to the flat grades encountered the sewer pipes would
need the utmost care in laying so
as to ensure their being true to
grade, as any depression or distortion would inevitably cause
clogging and obstruction. The
joints, too, would need to be as
nearly perfect as possible to prevent the infiltration of water and
sand, an unknown depth of waterlogged sand underlying practically
the whole city.
The report then goes on to deal
with the provision of Hush tanks
for the main sewers, the importance
of an efficient system of ventilation
and the rigid inspection of house
connections. The city is also
mapped out into sewage areas, and
the direction and size of sewer
pipes indicated, with the locations
of the subsidiary pumping stations,
which latter it is proposed to
operate with electric motors, driven
from the city's power house.
After the sewage collecting
system comes the question of a
disposal plant. As already stated
Mr. Hancock concludes that a
sewage farm would be inadvisable.
Whatever method is adopted, the
sewage has first to pass through a
screening process to eliminate
sand, gravel and other mineral
matters and street refuse.
The next step in the disposal problem is
the elimination of the suspended matter in
the sewage which mav be accomplished
more or less successfully in a large number of ways. Those in general use, adaptable to Kelowna conditions may be divided
into four main classses, as follows.
1. Septic Tank process.
2. Chemical precipitation.
3. Natural Settlement.
4. Hydrolitic Tank process.
I.    The Septic Tank process is well known
to you. The main essential of a Septic
tank is that it be constructed in such a way
that it will provide the most favourable
conditions for the development and action
of anaerobic bacteria. Briefly, both light
and air must be excluded and disturbance
of the contents of the tank must be avoided
as much as possible. The former desideratum is best obtained by a close cover of
concrete or brick arches; probably necessary at Kelowna in any case owing to the
possibility of occasional spells of cold
weather and the central situation of the
Comparative absence of disturbance is
'secured by building the tank large enough
to care for at least twelve hours flow and
arranging the inlets and outlets so that
neither the bottom sludge or the surface
scum are appreciably agitated. For a unit
caring for 5,000 people a tank 42ft. by 12ft.
with a depth of sewage averaging six feet
in depth would easily care for twelve
hours flow when that population was
reached, and would not much exceed a
24 hour flow for your present population.
In case a tank has to be entirely emptied for cleaning or repairs it is absolutely
necessary that there be no interference
with the process, and consequently it will
be necessary to construct two tanks of
this size with the first unit. The final design for the estimated population ef 15,000
people will have four tanks of this size,
each taking a twelve hour flow ol
people, which arrangement would permit
of one tank being out of commission and
still leave sufficient capacity in the remain-
dei to give reasonably efficient results.
Even when all are in operation for the full
population the rate of flow will be sufficiently rapid. Two tanks for your present
population would take a flow of 48 hours
which is not harmful; in fact, the process
continues to give increasing efficient results
at least up to a 72 hour flow, but the increased percentage after the first twelve
hours is so small that the additional cost
of providing tanks with an ultimate capacity exceeding that period is not warranted.
The length of time during which a septic
tank may be permitted to work without
emptying depends very largely on the
character of the sewage to be. treated.
Usually a tank ceases to give satisfactory
results when 25 per cent, of its capacity is
occupied by sludge, and it should then be
emptied and cleaned. The real test is,
however, in the effluent which should
never be permitted to contain more than
fifteen grains of solid matter per gallon,
when discharged on the filter beds. By
regular reduction of sludge, a tank handling only domestic sewage will work for
very long periods with emptying, especially if its capacity is not overstrained. For
Kelowna it is quite probable that this
period may extend to seven or eight years
or even longer.
On starting the operations of your tank
natural settlement will take place but it
will probably take some months before
the sewage becomes actively septic. The
length of time will vary with the season of
the year and the composition of the sewage.
Warm weather is of course favorable to
rapid septic action. 'After one tank is in
operation, others can be.started in a very
short time by fertilizing with sludge . from
the operating tank 'and permitting it to
stand for a few days.
Great care must be taken in this initial
development as well as in the subsequent
operations. Regular and intelligent handling is of the utmost importance. Bacteria
requires just as careful attention as far as
food and warmth are concerned, as do any
farm stock, and a week of carelessness
may mean many months of patience, to
As compared with chemical precipitation or natural settlement the septic process has the following advantages and disadvantages :•   .
1. Cost of construction comparatively
2. Special care required to avoid nuisance if other than domestic sewage is
3. Sludge is produced in comparatively
small quantities.
4. Sludge is very difficult to press and
of little or no value as a fertilizer.
5. Filtration as an after process has to
be more complete and thorough than for
chemical precipitation.
6. Percolating beds must be deeper
than for a preliminary chemical process.
7. The effluent from the tank is more
difficult to treat by contact beds than
either of the others but can be satisfactorily treated by percolating filters.
8. Cost of operation low.
2. Chemical Prtcipitation. In this process the precipitation of the suspended
solid matter in the sludge is secured by
the addition of certain chemicals which
cause the formation of solid compounds
These solids in the 'process of precipitation carry down the suspended matter _ in
the sewage as well as some of the polluting
matter.' So thorouahly is this done that a
comparatively small amount of secondary
treatment produces n satisfactory effluent
There are a large number of more _ or
less satisfactory precipitants some of which
depend on certain characteristics in the
sewage under treatment to produce the
necessary chemical reaction.
Those in common use include :-
Lime, in a perfectly caustic state.
C. P. R. Vice-President Some Interesting
A report from Winnipeg states
that great surprise was expressed
there when it was announced
that Sir William Whyte had retired
, as vice-president in charge of the
r___rmi_' Canadian Pacific Railway's western
line. Official word of Sir William's
decision came from Sir Thomas
Shaughnessy, who gave a dinner
at the Manitoba Club in his honor.
Sir Thomas said that when the age
limit of service was reached last
year Sir William had desired to
give up active work, but at his, Sir
Thomas', earnest request, he had
finally been prevailed on to continue in the company's service.
However, this time Sir William's
decision to retire and enjoy a rest
after a long and honorable service,
appeared to be irrevocable, and it
was with regret that the directors
had accepted it. However, they
induced Sir William to accept a
position on the board of directors,
where his splendid services will
not be altogether lost to the company. Although not announced it
is understood thst Sir William's retiring allowance is $12,000.
General manager, G. F. Bury  is
named as his successor.

The latter system is the only one that is
likely to be of-use in Kelowna, but only if
there is a satisfactory market for the pro.
duct. It has been in operation about 25
years at Kingstion-on-Thamea and renders
the sludge easy of treatment to a marketable condition. After drying and treating
it produces a dry odorless powder, rich in
nitrogen and phosphates which, when put
up in bags sells readily in Great Britain
as " Native Guano" at $17.50 per ton. At
Kingston One ton of Guano is produced
each year for every twenty five inhabitants.
Comparing the chemical precipitation
process with natural precipitation and the
septic tank processes the following points
are to be noted :—-
(i.) Comparatively low cost of construction.
Little or no danger of nuisance.
Large quantities ot sludge.
Sludge easily pressed.
Comparatively   small  amount   of
filtration required as a secondary
Least depth and capacity of filtration beds.
Very suitable effluent  for subsequent contact bed treatment,
(viii.) High cost of operation.

and an engine to drive them. The
smaller electric unit was ordered
bv the council with the double
purpose of economizing in fuel at
times when the load was too light
for the big generator, and also to
provide a day service for power
purposes. The new pump was
rendered necessary by the rapid

Briefly, this method of treatment has
much to recommend it on the grounds of
comparatively low cost of construction and
efficient results usually' obtained, but the
cost of operation, including chemicals and
the burden of. large quantities of sludge,
would, I think, prove too great for your
3, Natural Settlement. Th.is process, as
its name implies, necessitates the bringing
of -'.tHe seweie either to a «onipiet<! state'
of test or to reduce the velocity ofthe
flow so 'that the suspended solids in the.
sewage may be deposited on the floor of
the tanks," The sludge thus formed being
constantly removed prior ko the commencement of septic action, comparatively
small tank area is required, but the sludge
produced is considerably- greater than the
septic tank effluent.
Generally speaking,'this process gives
average results between the septic tank
process and that of chemical precipitation,
the merits and demerits of both being less
marked.- It haa little to recommend it for
Kelowna.' '   .
4. The Hydrolilic Tank Process is the invention of Dr. Owen Travis and he controls patents on all its essential .features.
It is more, expensive to construct and
operate than the septic tank but gives
considerably better results, and the saving
in the secondary process is large.: It has
two points ot superiority-
fa) Large superficial surfaces are provided in the form of concrete or wooden
slabs suspended vertically from steel joists
with their planes parallel to the flow of
sewage so that the suspended matter in
the .sewage is attracted to the slab surfaces
in a colloidal condition.
... (i) The precipitated solids are removed
by gravitation quickly and continuously to
separate chambers so arranged that there
is no disturbance caused to the liquid in
the main body of tank from, the belcbing
of-gases given off during the process of
liquification in thp sludge. This is^ an
excellent tank in. every way and has much,
to recommend it for cities of fair size, i
fear,- however, that it is too costly-and
complicated in operation for your present
for immediate future population.
Selection of Preliminary Process.
; The main object to be considered in the
design of all disposal plant* is to secure a
satisfactory degree of purity in the effluent
at a minimum cost in bath construction
and operation. One ofthe most difficult
and costly features of operation is the disposal of the sludge residue from any of
these preliminary processes, especially *o
in th'e case of an installation pf this size,
therefore this feature has to .be one .of our
chief considerations, in the selection of a
preliminary process.
The .usual drying and filter-pressing
plant is one ofthe most approved methods,
but even a small installation would cost
not less than $1,000,000. Such a plant
would still be sufficient when your population reaches the 10,000 mark, but.no
smaller ■ junit is practicable;. If however,
the balance of evidence indicates ithat a
septic tank is advisable it will be unwise
to attempt ta filter-press the resulting
sludge. The .septic process renders the
sludge very difficult .to press, necessitating
the .addition of  large quantities of  lime.
Ladies and
Gents' Tailors
Repairing and Pressing
promptly attended to.
commission reported that the septic process eliminated from 25 to 30 per cent, of
the total solids, which is considerably more
than from any other process.
In regard to No. 2, one can readily remove the organisms in the secondary process if   the-first fails to do so.
For No. 3, it merely means that the secondary process must be complete as for
any other preliminary treatment. Briefly
!the commission laid emphasis on these
points, not because of the inferiority of the
process1, but because certain engineers and
advocates were attempting to use it without adequate secondary treatment.
TKe effluent from the septic tanks
require further purification before
it can be allowed to flow into the
lake. There are two processes of
this secondary treatment described
in the report, viz., Contact Beds and
Contin.uou8 Filters.
Contact beds consist of watertight tanks
of from ■ 3ft. to 5ft. in depth, filled with
hard material of such size as to give a
large percentage of voids which form a
nidus for bacteria. The liquid frorn the
tank is run into these voids until they are
completely filled and then allowed to stand
in acquiescent state in. contact with the
ipaterial of the bed for a sufficient number
of hours to enable the bacteria to do their
work. |
The Continuous Filter system,"
however is recommended as being
cheaper in construction, more efficient in action and less likely to
get out of order.
In carrying out the oxidisation of the
preliminary tank effluent by this process ia
tank is constructed with a strong impervious floor and porous walls. This tank is
filled with a filtering medium which inust
be pf hard material, which should be non-
porous. The medium rests on a false floor
of tile or other material of sufficient
strength which leaves a space for Jthe.
collection and egress of the water, after
passing down through the filtering medium.
The preliminary tank effluent jj discharged
.continuously on to tl>e su/face of the
filter by some method whose essential to
clarification is that eveness of distribution
jap secured.

an excellent and senijtajry method of dia-i
posal, but even, thri smallest practicable'
unit would not be iept economically busy',
for same- veara to come even-with the
addition of all garbage and house refuse.
Drying in Lagoons or prepared beds is
a ^method frequently adopted, .but it has
several disadvantages from a sanitary point
'of view and it is not to be recommended
for a central jBjte. Earth burial ir*a method
that has much to recommend it'under
favourable conditions. It must be carried
on with reasonable care on a central site
but can be made (entirely unobjectionable.
It .can be used oply-to advantage with some
process'that does'; not produce excessive
quantities of sludge and is particularly
adapted for use in conjunction with sceptic
tank's, but-sludge from which is small'in
quantity and difficult to treat .Jag other
methods.    '
- The free land available at the park site
may not be sufficient .pfter the lapse of
some years, :but temporary we may be
made of the site alocated for percolating
filters No. 5& No. 6,and fcy occasional hauling to a more isolated site the construction
of an incinerator may te delayed -until the
destruction of your garbage of house
refuse becomes a necessity, at which time
the incinerator can be' built to perform
both functions.
Taking all the circumstances into consideration, I think it' is necessary for you
to select a process which gives a minimum
quantity of, sludge, or ono that will give
low construction cost and comparatively
large quantities- of sludge4and prepare the
product for the market by the ABC or
other process. .
The desirability of the {latter proposal
depends entirely oirthe extent and value
of the market available.
With your present population, and, considering the nature or the agricultural and
horticultural industries of the district with
the fact that the vast bulk of your land
is still practically virgin .soil, needing no
artificial stimulation, 1 can only conclude
that the septic tank, with its small product
and-low coat of operation will, if properly
installed and operated, be more suited to
your present and immediate future than
any ofthe other processes we have briefly
considered. v
Some misapprehension has arisen in regard to the efficiency and. Renewal utility of
septic tanks as a result of tne report made
in 1908 by the Royal Commission on sew*
age disposal in Great Britain. 'After carefully studying this report, I take it that the
coroihission still consider this process a
valuable one when properly designed and
when applied to suitable a class of sewage
and conditions. The'commission, as a result of searching experiments and' investigations, reported that some extravagant
claims formerly made for this process nad
not stood the test of experience. These,
claims were.
(i.) That it solved the. sludge difficulty in-
toto as practicaljy all,the organic solid
matter was digested in .the tank,
"(ii.) That it 'destroyed any pathogenic
organisms in the sludge,
(iii.) That the effluent was more easily
oxidised  that that from any other pro-
In regard to the first item, it has been a
matter of knowledge for several years that
The Estimated Cost
The estimate of cost is given in
some detail, but for present purposes it may be roughly divided
under tjyp heads. The Disposal
plant, which includes screeningf
and detritus tanks, pump house
and equipment, two septic tanks,
and two percolating filters and all
necessary piping for connection
with the sewers, is estimated to
cost kbout $38,000.
The amount spent on sewers will
of course depend vipon the extent
to which they are laid. It w.ould
be impossible to cover the whole'
city at the first installation,-and the
engineer contemplates as a commencement ftn ,ajea which would
include the principal business and
residential districts. This amount
of piping and laying is expected .|.9
cost about $75,745- Adding $16r
255. for contingencies .and interest
during construction, the whole preliminary installation'. would reach
about $130,000, .or a sum ogjy

The report concludes with some
suggestion re«pectii)g .the improvement of the grades of some of our
streets. ;
The construction of permanent concrete
sidewalks indicates that you have already
established permanent grades on .some of
your principal streets, consequently 1 think
no good purpose .will be served at the
present time by a study of street grades. I
may say, however, thait some of the low-
lying streets at the extremities of-the sewer
areas which are now from I to 3;feet-above
lake level should be brought up at the
earliest opportunity to an evera^eelevation
of 5 feet. Some few stretches will need
this treatment when the »ewers are built
but the main bulk of the work can be
carried out gradually. If fupds are not
available for a comprehensive .scheme or
the immediate necessity of such a scheme
is not apparent, many cities secure the
gradual rise of grade by distributing a
comparatively soft shale rock, which is
easy to break and handle and quickly, gets
into shape under the ordinary street traffic
when a steam-roller is not available. This
material usually provides a' good surface
for two or three years with light traffic
when it can be left as filling and a second
layer of ten inches or « foot will continue
the grade-raising process and, provide a
new surface. . When the height of crown
becomes too great for the present ditches
storm water culverts of wood may be laid
in these ditches prior to filling them. These
culverts would last many years, probably
very easily to the point when you will be
strong enough to cc-notruct a regular
storm water system.

The report of the consulting
engineer, Mr. H. Sydney Hancock, Jnr., A. M. Can. Soc. C. E.,
A. M. Am. Soc. C. E.,   R.A.S.I.,
the  consulting engineer   who
was    commissioned    by   ' the
council    to    inquire    into  the
conditions affecting the installation  of a  sewerage  system
for the city should make interesting   reading.    The   matter
has  been   discussed privately
times   without   number,   but
this  is,  we  believe,  the  first
occasion upon which the problem  has  been   faced   in  so
practical and definite a manner
as to secure the opinion of an
That an efficient sewerage
system is Kelowna's most
urgent need—^and one which
■will have to be supplied in the
near future—there is no room
to doubt. The health of the
entire community rests upon
the preservation of sanitary
conditions and although' Kelowna has a remarkably good
record in that respect compared
with some other towns, in the
nature of things, and in view
of the increasing population,
the present method of dealing
with the removal of sewage
can only be regarded as temporary. It is, indeed, hardly
necessary to discuss these
points as they are too apparent
to everyone,
Unfortunately the cost of a
sewerage system will, owing to
serous local disadvantages, be
somewhat high. The extremely
flat grades which are met with
on all the city streets, and the
waterlogged condition of the
sandy subsoil, due to the very
slight elevation above the city's
natural drainage basin, the
lake, all tend to make the
expense of installation a formidable matter. In this respect
we are "nfortunate. But
worse diffic Jties have been
overcome by other towns and
Kelowna will no doubt have to
do the same.
The report from which we
print extracts in the present
issue is, of course, only a
preliminary one, and much
more detailed inquiries would
have to be made before any
definite action was taken.
