CO. . 9« . 9 3% 2% 2% Grange Convention To Be Staged At Gowanda Kiwanis Club Members See WatoJPlant Filtration Superintendent Addresses Club Today At North Olean Plant Water purification methods as used in Olean were discussed and seen by members of the local Kiwanis Club today at a meeting held at the North Oleau Filtration Plant. S. D. Poarch, superintendent, was the principal speaker. The dinner was served by the Olean House at the plant. Mr. Poarch gave a brief outline of the plant operation and the purpose of filtration as well as the object for such a plant and then conducted the Kiwanians through the plant. He was assisted by Dr. E. D. Kilmer, member of the Board of Water Commissioners, who conducted half of the group through the plant and explained the various operations beginning at the intake and continuing through each process until the water is ready for distribution to the Olean consumers. Following the tour, Mr. Poarch and his assistants staged a backwash of one of the filters for the benefit of his guests. Mr. Poarch, in his address, ottt- ined the responsibilities of the water works as follow :s Furnishing water under sufficient pressure and in sufficient quanties at all times, because of the fire risk which is always present in a municipality. Furnishing water of a safe and sanitary quality to prevent disease, whcih is second only to fire as an enemy. Furnishing water of a good physical quality and water free [rom objectional odor, a responsibility which is keenly felt and which is receiving the attention of research workers. He pointed out that there are sixty miles of pipe in Olean used to distribute the water for fire protection in addition to the industrial and domestic lines. Two reservoirs, aggregating a capacity of 12,000,000 gallons of water, provide sufficient pressure for fire fighting needs. A strictly modern water purification plant capable of furnishing 6,000,000 gallons of water daily is now in operation using the following methods: Prechloronation, to kill bacteria and to cheapen the treatment in the matter of the amounts of chemicals needed. Aeration, to remove the major part of the odors. Coagulation with alum and lime to remove the major part of the silt nnd bacteria, and deodorization with active carbon. Filtration, through thirty inches of sand and twenty-four in- chest of graded gravel, to remove all sill and bacteria. Final sterilization, to insure a product of absolute safe sanitary quality.
