Exhibit to Discourage Water Waste in Philadelphia
Every modern device for the elimination of waste in the use of the public water supply will be shown at an exhibition to be held in the court yard of the Philadelphia City Hall, beginning October 1. The exhibition will be under the auspices of the Department of Public Works and Mayor Blankenburg has appointed a committee of citizens to direct the exhibit. It is primarily intended to educate the citizens on saving water and to demonstrate the devices which if applied to plumbing fixtures, will prevent water waste. Among those on the comittee are John G. Fleck, president of the Fleck Bros. Co. and Powell Evans of the Merchant & Evans Company, Philadelphia, Pa. The exhibit will be held in the court yard because of the splendid oportunity it presents to have all of the appliances in operation through attachment with extension pipes which are to be installed. During the evening while the exhibition is in progress, lantern slides of subjects pertaining to the municipal water supply will be shown on a large screen.
