To Complete the Panhandle System

Issue 12 and Volume 52.

To Complete the Panhandle System The Panhandle is preparing to complete its water plant west of Hartford City, Ind., by laying 3,000 feet of 8-inch pipe, connecting three new wells with the reservoir. Recent tests of the new wells show a capacity of 178 gallons each per minute. The water-softening plant, by means of which the hard lime water, impregnated with iron, is made as soft as rainwater before it enters the boilers of locomotives, has a capacity of 225,000 gallons a day. The completion of the water system, with a $200,000 coaling dock, deprives the Hartford City waterworks of one of its best customers.
