TWStVB ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH P®re&nt Completed »i<iimiiKi«n»'»>iiiiri»«iiii--io-ifrn'mji'j-L'iinL'rmi>irUiiirr<»rii'ii>i Hope to Speed Up Sewerage CoMstniction at Wood River W0013 RIVER - With the Wood sewerage project about completed, city officials tifghf considered ways fo several delayed phases of the project. They ttodded approval for the Jfpfleral contractor to try "facklnr" pijSfi.'Under Ferguson avenue, from Sixth 1o Fourteenth streets, if that method can be used. Use of an open trench in this area would be difficult since there are 1 four oil lines of the Ohio Oil Co which would have to be replaced by the city. Construction In ihls area has been halted since coo- tractors ran into the pipe. tJsc of the "Jacking" method Would mean that It would be necessary to Use 48-inch pipe instead of 30-inch from Ninth to Four- teeneth street. The Madison Construction Co., general contractor, plans to begin Work on this stretch of Madison within a week or 10 days, Mayor Stoneham reported. An open ditch would disturb the street, thfc old sewerage system, the oil pipe lines and water lines, Stoneham pointed out. To speed up work on the outlet at the Mississippi, which has been halted by high river stages, tlie contractor and engineers have requested of 1he United States army engineers that they replace a nine- foot gap at the outlet with derrick stone. If permission is denied, the spillway can't be constructed until the low-water stage which usually comes in January. Alderman Gordon Mallory, a member of the Wood River levee and drainage district, announced that a contract is to be let on June 19 for construction of the sewerage pumping station. , The station will be located west of the Standard Oil Co. refinery's entrance to its Wood River property on the Alton-St. Louis road. The station ties in with the city's new 84-inch sewerage system. The U. S. Government is to pay the entire cost of the project which tion will have five pumps, including is estimated at $468,000. The station will have five pumps, including three to pump surface water at the rate of 32,000 gallons per minute and two sewerage pumps, which can operate at 13,750 gallons per minUte. Sewerage inspector fees approved by councilmen Monday include: Otto Ratz, $300; George Botteron, $215.25 and John Riva, $222.
