Cartersville, Ga., is now pumping water by electricity Heretofore a steam pumping station was maintained and engineers and firemen employed to keep the pumps going. At times during the year, due to the scarcity of water, the pumps had to be kept in operation practically 24 hours a day. But with tiie filtering plant completed and the reservoir constructed, a sufficient supply of water can be stored in the reservoir in a few hours. This will mean an economic saving, in addition to having plenty of water.
