Hall, chief of the division of.Sanitary Engineering of Maryland, was read by Mrs. Henrietta Kaslo, acting city clerk at a regular meeting of Mayor Okey E. Michael and Commissioners. It was in reply to an inquiry asking if the town would be permitted to sell raw water to persons outside of the town. After the filtration plant is built and put into operation the town will discontinue the operation of their chlorination plant on Savage River. The water line will pass these points before reaching the proposed filtration plant to be built on Westernport Hill. Hall stated it was his understanding that the present chlorinator at the dam will be maintained and operated even after the completion of the- filtration plant. If this is not the case however, it will be necessary at least from the standpoint of-Bloomington that the Bloomington Water Company in- stall means for chlorinating the water served to its consumers. "Others users of Westernport water between the dam and Bloomington, in my opinion will be. subject to a potential hazard in. that they will be consuming 'untreated water," he wrote. "It would scent to me,the propel- way to handle this situation is to maintain in operation the chlorinator at the dam for pre-chlorination so as to make available a sate water, from a bacterial standpoint, to the consumer served in this area and to the filter, effluent .from filtration' plant/It has been found the pre-chlorination before has • beneficial .effects upon the operation of a filter plant. Under such conditions, the required chlorine dosage for the plant effluent is relatively, small _in that it is possible to maintain a low chlorine residual through the filter plant," the letter.continued. "It may be possible also to arrange for the personnel at the dam to take care of pre-chlorinating and the only charge against the Bloomington Water Company would be the cost of chlorine used rather than the investment involved in purchasing suitable chloriuation equipment with building to house it. plus operating expense." Engineers of Glace and Glace wrote, "It is the intention to maintain thc existing chlorinator at Savage River Dam so that raw water may be chlorinated whciv thc filter plant is by-passed. There may be occasions after the plant is constructed and in operation that repairs or Other maintenance may have to be done to some of the units or equipment necessitating unfiltered water to Westernport without chloTiriation of the water at the dam. therefore raw water will be served to the local consumers which is highly undesirable." "In view of above discussion and the opinion that the chlorinator at the dam should be maintained in operation after the filter plant is completed.
