New Conservation The continuous depletion of Waterbury's water supplies has made it necessary for the city to arrange for the rental of water pumps,, to pump water from the Shepaug Reservoir into Shepaug Tunnel, from where it will flow into Pitch Reservoir. The water in the She- paug is now too low to enter the inlets to the tunnel. Water Superintendent Julius A. Nido said he expects to send department trucks to Long Island City, N. Y., for the pumps next week. The pumps will be placed on pontoons in the reservoir and will operate regardless of the chang- ibut decreasing water supplies have given rise to feelings of apprehension among farmers and officials of various water companies. A good number of the 1,600 or more commercial farmers in Litchfield County have found it necessary to haul water from their neighbors, municipal supplies or the nearest source available in order to provide for their dairies and their homes. ing height of the water. They must be manned 24 hours per day, Mr. Nido said. New emergency measures are being taken by the Water Department to conserve water. The Park Department will be asked to turn of all fountains which run continuously and water will be turned off at the Carrie Welton fountain in Exchange Place. Mr. Nido said that Waterbury's reservoirs are at their lowest point in the past 25 years. The water problem, stemming from the prolonged dry period of the summer months, has become more acute in view of the fact that anticipated heavy autumn rains have failed to materialize. The situation has not yet reached the emergency stage in general, Announcing The — ELMER WHEELER "WORLD .LABORATORY" DEMONSTRATION MONDAY NIOHT ONLY, OCT. 31, 1949 8:09 TO 9:30 HOTEL ELTON ASSEMBLY ROOM Admission by Ticket Only — Phone or Write Pdst Junior College of Commerce 24 Central Ave., Watertmry Tel. 4-8772 HOW TO OUTSMART AN ANT Since ancient times, the ant has been a symbol of hard work.
