to get estimates immediately on the
project, which was proposed five
years ago. At that time the cost
was set at $175,000. Major J. H.
Way said today he expected pres
ent-day costs would be about $250,'
Included in the project is a new

the place of the 40-ycar-old unit
now in use. Also a parallel 10-inch
main pipe line from the intakes al

Only one line now supplies water
for the entire community from the

and officials point to the danger of
a break-down in the lines.
: The filtering plant built 40
years ago Is far from being ado

increased consumption of water
The system supplies water for not
