FOREIGN APPROVAL OF AMERICAN FILTRATION.
It seems like importing coals to Newcastle when an English city gives its unqualified approval of mechanical or American filtration—the impression being that slow sand filtration was the recognized system abroad. Last year the New York Continental Jewell Filtration company installed a filter plant of 4,000,000 gallons capacity at the waterworks of York, England. After testing its successful operation, the New York authorities have supplemented the order for an additional 2,000,000—thus increasing the daily capacity of the original plant to 6,000,000 imperial gallons. This company has also received an order from the Hungarian government for equipping the royal railway near Buda-Pesth with a filter plant. Thus all Americal ideas from their practicability keep pushing ahead.
