A 10-inch cast iron pipe .carries water from the canyon reser- voix to head the distribution sys- tem at ay and 4th :streets. First of the two wells, desig- nated as Williams, or No. 1, was drilled to the depth of 450 feet in 1931, and placed in operation in 1934 with the installation of: a 40 I-IP pump. Dependent on back pressure, it delivers 350 gallons per minute, or 504,000 i gallons daffy. t Well No. 2, or Wedel well, ! was unk to a depth of 300 feet in 1941, and ,100 HP pump in- stalled. It delivers 1,000 gal- lons per rrdnute, or 1,440,000 gal- lora with continuous pumping over a 24-hour period. Over ,the years a constant vrater level has been maintained in these two wells, indicating a ,vast supply of underground , water. ! Thus, daily maximum water consumption is low, water flows into the Lank; otherwise it feeds directly imo the mains. When tank is full, the pump kicks off attomatically, and when t is drawn down 10 feet from the overflow line at the top of the tank, pumping is auto- matically resumed. The 10- inch overflow .pipe leads into Mont- pelier creek. The only water lost from the s3rstem is through this overflow pipe. The one 12-inch pipe acts as an inflow and outflow line. Auto-i matic devices at the pump house  operate either on 'tank level, or system pressure. There is also a manual control. A Clay and 4th reets is the intern point of all sources going into the city distribution system. From ,this point it must be forced to hhe furthermost out- lets in the closed circuit system through a network of mains and eormections. Some mains are too small for demands placed on the present system, resulting in low pressure in some areas. ,All water from springs is treat- ed at the chlorination plan,t and meets ste standm-ds. supply with both pumps in con- , tinuous operation amounts to 'a total of 2,028,000 gallons: 684,000 gallons from rrings, 504,000 , from Wel No. 1, and 1,440,00(} from Well No. 2.
