Orange Reservoirs Supply East Orange—The work of connecting new engines and boilers in the East Orange, N. J., distribution system caused a twenty-four hour shutoff of the city’s regular water supply, and by an old agreement Orange was asked for use of its water supply for the time. The pressure of the Orange water is 90 pounds, While that of East Orange is between 75 and 80, and as a result of the high pressure of the former system there was considerable disturbance of the inner surface of pipes and a consequent discoloration of the water.
