Testing Water of Delaware Towns

Testing Water of Delaware Towns

Dr. Herbert J. Watson, State Bacteriologist of Delaware, is now engaged in testing samples of water from many towns in the State. With very few exceptions he has found the drinking water of towns that samples have been analyzed so far to be good and none of the water was dangerous. Samples of the water from Laurel. Harrington, Bridgeville, Delmar, Scaford, Dover, Rehoboth, Georgetown, New Castle and Newark have all been tested and found to be good. Dr. Watson has also been testing the water that the Pennsylvania railroad uses in the trains for drinking purposes and at the various stations and has found it all to be satisfactory. An inspection of railroad water has to be made every six months and certified by the State Board. Dr. Watson is also working on analysis of the water from the public parks and State institutions and complete records of these tests are made. The water at the workhouse and the State Hospital is shown to be exceptionally good
