I.LIP on' the first intimation of the I:, eciinlug
searcit, ,V very effort waS made °bythe efficient
Chief Engineer of the Water Department, to
mitigate the?ell'ecti as far:as pratticable. All
'that could be done at the time was to reduce
cosiouniption to the lowest limit; tticeordingly,
in,order to assist that offi.ter rin his move: ,
'iustriletions, were' given` `,the; 'police
to visit every, , dwelling • house ,in their
respective districts, and urge upon the.
occupants the necessity of strict economy in
the use of the:B(l4lU' water; and Lienten
ams Were requited to, personally. call upon the
proprietors' of sugar refineries; dye works, tic
,tortes and• other large establishments constun

portance of checking all waste. The pollee
:Were also ordered to enforce ,the water
natives against all persons violating the same,
the citizens generally; in the Meantime, being
'requested by public notice through the news-
Papers, by the Chief Engineer, to be as.
sparing 88 possible in its use. • '
, The efforts thus 'made have, been, to a cer
tain extent;sueeessful; but as We haverliereto
:fore relied in •fancied security upon a never-
failing,ahtmdance of water, it is not surprising
that' legal "aafeguards' against' its Waste have
prete& insufficient in: -the late emergency,
- while as regards the curtaihnent of the use of

It is not to ibbliresumed; 'however; that if

frm.which•we have hardly yet escaped. And
this leads to a consideration of the means for
effecting that object • • • - • , • '•
As to this, while submitting the subject , in
general tone wiadom of Councils, I beg leave
to express my approval of the suggestion, so
, universally made, that the proper measure of
• prevention, atleast formany. years to come,
consists inthe erection of adequate auxiliary
steam engines at Fairmount,. to be.- used as
suggested, by the Chief Engineer in his-annual
report of 1868, viz. • , , -
"When • the 'water is insufficient to run all
the wheels, and so arranged as to be able to
raise the water from below the dam in case of
any accident' to that important structure',
Their cost Will be but small in itself, 'in Vein
pavilion 'witli the object-in view quite inaig
uiticaut, and their running expenses will be
,liniited•to the average brief period in each
year 'when • their • services are specially r&
4q,uired. • • •
This, therefore, should certainly be done,
. land at the earliest moment ;: indeed, it is stir
' prising that, it was not dope long ago, in views
of the mere posSibility : of 'accident to Fair
pount dam.
But While t
his' provision may suffice for m
• time; it yet seems clesirable, .now that public
iattentien is se strongly directed to the subject
~ O f Water-supply, to extend our view, further
into the'future. „' • •
The importance of an abundant, never-fail
ing supply of Water to every cityis great, but
to Philadelphia, Which isito so large an exten4
the Seat of manufactUres„ it • can, scarcely be
exaggerated.' 'ID ''noti-manitfacturing 'townS
the eousequences a Short supply, for even
a hrief 'period,. are serious enough; but, in
a manufacturing town, in addition to all
considerations of health- and '• - domeStic- com
fort, the mere mercantile - aspects of the
case assume most formidable proportions.
Philadelphia is- erephatically a great' manu
facturing city. •Water is as much the breath
of her thousands of steam engines mils the air
of those of the tens of thousands of her skilled.
workmen who are dependent: upon those
engines for their daily bread; and there' hould
be no more doubt or question of an ample and
' nfifailing st,lpply.of one than the 'other. The
means are in our power, and not to use theta
from a fear of •• the expense would be,one of
those, cases in which parsimony is the:, Worst
, extravagance: ;
In fact, we still possess, in the water-Power
• at Fairmount; properly improved and admin
istered, the means of supplying water to as
great an extentand'atas cheap, if net cheaper,
rate 'than those possessed by any other city ;
• and•it,M in. relation to this abundant supply for
manufacturing purposes that the reduction of
its cost seems.meSt iruPortant and the value of
our water-power most apparent. -
The last report Of the Chief Engineer shows
that while the cost of raising one million. of
;gallons of water eneloot ,lugh at the Fair
mount works is btie one cent and eight-tenths,
that of the 'same service at the Twenty-fourth
. Ward works hi seven cents and' eighteen-ene-
Widredtlis; at the Schuylkill works', nine
centiVand nine -tenths; at the- Germantown
worka,-pipeteencents and four-tentlaii and'rit
time-Delaware . Wprks; twenty-four , .cents,; and
eighttentbso • .
• . The vasteconomy of such a water-power as
that at Fairmount (although' still timid by no
means as 'effectively as it might''be)•is here
strikingly. exhibited, and •it shows the great
value of that power, and after' correcting our
single mistake of relying' eXelusively 'upon it
• in a period ofidrought, we should; :by raising
the dam, as far as, practicable, improve • the
waterpower to the greatest possible extent.
subject of future water supply
has recently been considered by a committee

consisting of Messrs. Frederick Graff; Chair

The , most, Important of these lidsaPPre
hensions upon the subject is a belief that this
Company-plaims the right to limit now the ex
tent of the right ofthe city to use the of
the Sehu`Vlkill for distribution from its reSer-.
voirs. The Company have:never made such'
claim. The (old) city corporation, under its
grants from the Company, did claim such a
right against the district of Spring Garden;
but the Sitprerae'Court decided against it, and
established the, law as, it now stands, by which
it is clear that the Present city may dra*froin
Fairmount pool all the water it needs for dis
tribution from its reservoirs, at least as longas•
the quantity so drawn does not interfere with
the use'of the river as a highWaya period
certainly very remote, and which possibly
may never be reached at all.
But the use of the water-power created by the.
dam at Fairmount; or by any Other data on the
Schuylkill Navigation, stands upon a different
footing. The only light which the city has to
such use of the Water in Fairmount pool is de
rived by grant from this Company under the
agreeinent, The supply of water in Fairmount'
pool Would - .be suflicientr, iu periods of the
greatest: diought, for the Wants •both of the
Navigation Company and the city, if the lat
ter did not rely wholly upon that water for its
power at the Fairmount Water Works. The
quantity of water thus used is enormons,
old - breast wheels there consume nearly
fbrtrf 'gallons as 'power for every gallon that'
they throw into the reservoirs. The turbines
lately introduced consume twelve. It is solely,
therefore,: as,a Measure of economy, and to
save the Cost of an auxiliary steam engine to
be used only in seasons 4it &Ought, or in event
of accident to'tlie dam, that thecity now takes
the water and stops the navigation in the
manner of which we complain.
The from the Company to the city, it
will p t .: seen, wags; most - *mrefffily .confined
within tlie limits ley which the Coinpany itself
was restricted by its charter-L•which charter
guards the rights of the , public' in the,river lv
.a highway, by providing that every such grant
be so, framed, that it shall not at any time im :7
nede' sp..,
,the navigation... Accord..
ingly, the grant to the city is only of "the
water and water,power that shall remain after
drawing off from the dam erected so much as
may be necessary for the purposes of the navi.
gation of said liver, canal and locks ;" and it
lel,rovides alse'that. ",that. the ?city shall only

The first inconvenience felt was upon 'the

The Supply of water in the river becoming
rapidly so very limited as to cause alarm, and
deeming it my duty, to attempt to keep it up
by every possible means, a letter,was addressed
to the . ..l4ailgation Company (a copy of which
is appended), desiring them , to suspend the
lockage of any boats through the outlet, , lock
at Pairmoant, and Also to draw down all the
available;water from the dams>, on the, line,of,

plied with by the , assistant, president of the ,
