The Machias and Caneadea Plants.
A correspondent furnishes the following data with reference to the above waterworks plants in the State of New York: “The Machias Water Supply Company has completed its water system and is furnishing its patrons water from springs 3 miles distant from the village at an elevation of 186 feet above the town. The springs are located on the highest point of the Alleghany range of mountains about 1,500 feet above Lake Erie. The pipe and specials were furnished by the United States Cast Iron Pipe & Foundry Company and the hydrants and valves by the Rensselaer Valve Company. The system is gravity and is bonded for $18,000. The cost of plant was $25,000. G. N. Cowan was engineer of the plant. The Caneadea Water Supply Company has been recently incorporated, capital $15,000, to supply Caneadea, N. Y., with water by a gravity system. Work is expected to commence in May.”
