Sioux Falls Water System

Sioux Falls Water System

That the Sioux Falls. S. Dak., water system has had a remarkable growth since it was established was the assertion made by L. P. Wolff, of Minneapolis, consulting engineer, after completing an inspection of the system to see what improvements might be necessary. He recommended that preparations be made for the installation of a motor-driven pump in well No. 3 similar to the one in well No. 2. He also urged the construction of a concrete reservoir, which would be about 20 feet high and 100 feet in diameter and would have a capacity for 1,200,000 gallons of water. This, he said, would lie necessary in case of a big fire or a dry spell. The securing of funds for the installation of another high duty pump, to be installed at the plant when needed, was also recommended, as was the erection of a standpine in the southern section of the city. Wolff predicted a great growth for the water works, and said that when the new sewers are installed, the demand for water will be far greater than at present.
