New Water Supply for Huelva, Spain

Consular Agent William J. Alcock, writes as follows concerning the enlargement of the water supply at Huelva, Spain:

“The water supply for this city being insufficient, municipal authorities have spent large sums on investigations with the view of providing this most essential article, but without success. However, there is now every prospect of an abundant supply being brought in, as a private company has presented a project for acceptance by the municipal authorities. The company has all surveys, plans, etc., ready and is in a position to start work immediately upon the concession being granted. The distance which this water will be brought is 40 kilometers (28 ½ miles), which will mean a large water-piping (cast iron) order. The exact pipe measurement is not yet decided on, but I understand that it will he about 18 inches in diameter. The manager of this water supply company is Arthur Marshall. Mina Campanario, Valverde del Camino, Province of Huelva, Spain, who informs me that the pipe supply will be awarded by contract, and. when all preparations arc made, the contract will he duly announced, most probably from Paris, where the company has been formed. Further information will he furnished by this consular agency as soon as exact details are to hand.”
