THURSDAY,. JULY 31, 15M7 (AUK.) COURIER NEWS Survey is Made Of Water Supply University Research Bureau Compiles Data For Cities, Towns FAYETTEVILLE, Ark., July 31. —Tlie first, comprehensive study <•! Hie public water supplies of Arknn- sas as an industrial resource has been published by the University of Arkansas Bureau of Research. Dr. C. O: Brnmien, director, has announced. The study was made' in cooperation with the Geological Survey of the U. 8. Department of the Interior. The jSublicatlon presents, in condensed form. 217 analyses or public water supplies used by' 11& towns and'cities In the state. ' In gonern), the'report states, Mio quality of Arkansas' water is sootl. Hardness ranges from one to 704 and in many crises very good, parts per million, but averages about 94 parts per million for il! public supplies analyzed. Of Un; 178 supplies tested, 45 ncr cent':uu! a hardness of below 50 parts per inlllloriMind 58 per cent had a hardness of less than 100 parts. Bused on the v o lu m c of w a t o r actually used, the hardness Is lower than these figures indicate, because the larger cities'generally have, the softer sullies. From the standpoint 1 of Industrial development, water Is one of the' bAsie requirements.' According I to H. K. Thatcher of the Arkansas Resources and Development Commission, with offices in Washington, the first question always asked by an industrial concern in cor.- nection with a new location Is n- i bout' the quality and quantity of I the available water supply. In-addition to the volume or water required, the publication states, the individual consumer and cvVry i industry have specific standards of j quality for water in order that il. ' can meet their needs. These specific standards of quality may vary with the type of utilization. j Of the public water supplies analyzes. 132 are obtained 'from wells. ' 35 are obtained from surface sup- j plies, and H'supplies, located largely, in five counties in northwestern ! Arkansas, are obtained from! springs. The water samples were collected . by Harrison Hale of the Bureau of i Research and R; c Baker imd V A. Hewitt of the U. S. Geological Survey. Tfi£ samples were analyzed in the Geological Survey laboratory, at the University by I w Walling, D: M. Pa'rrlsb, and G. A Billingsley. Helena Doctor Dies •HELENA, Ark., July 31.
