Chlorination Plant Improves Quality of Water

Issue 1 and Volume 75.

Chlorination Plant Improves Quality of Water The report of the city chemist of Binghamton, N. Y., to the bureau of health states that the drinking water of that city has been greatly improved in quality by the installation of a new Wallace & Tiernan chlorination plant, which was installed at the filter plant and which began operation on Thanksgiving Day. The report further states that “the average amount of chlorine used thus far has been about one-tenth of one part per million and this is now being fed directly into the filtered water instead of into the unfiltered and coagulated water as formerly. The purification accomplished per unit of chlorine seems to be considerably better. Also the plan of the treated water is somewhat improved over what it was formerly when after disturbances by stornis there was a swampy taste.”
