Louisville Filtration.

Louisville Filtration.

The Louisville, Ky., Times claims that “there is no other filter plant in the world like the one constructed by the late Supt. Charles Hermany. Filters in some cities have cost as much as $5,000,000, or $6,000,000; but the Louisville system has not yet cost $2,000,000. It will cost water consumers more to get clear water; but it is presumed they will be satisfied with the change. Some time ago one of the officers of the waterworks estimated that the extra cost would be about $30,000 a year, on account of having to pump the water twice, instead of using the gravity plan as it is at present.” The Times adds that “Mr. Hermany had placed everything in readiness to turn on the water. There is no question about the filter working. The water which will come through the mains will be as clear as crystal. It will not only be free from turbidity, but will also lx* free from bacteria to a large extent.”
