Pitometer Tests at Savannah
During the five months from August to December, inclusively, in 1911, the total pumpage of water for the use of Savannah, Ga., was 1,696,896,552 gallons. This was considered to exceed what it should be normally, and recourse was had to the pitometer test. This was begun on January 26, 1912, and continued from February to June, 1912, continuously. During that period the pumpage was 1,451,038,296 gallons. During the five months prior to the use of the pitometer the total consumption of coal was 2,606.8 tons, as against 2,246.8 for the same period—a saving of 360 tons for the five months.
