WATER SUPPLY AT HEBRON.

WATER SUPPLY AT HEBRON.

The problem of city water is agitating Hebron, Neb. In winter the present well furnishes sufficient water; but with the sprinkling of lawns the supply is proving deficient. The present city well is 15 ft. wide and contains water to a depth of 14 ft. It takes two hours to pump it dry, and this is done four times a day. During high water the river overflows, putting out the engine fire and damaging machinery. To remedy this inconvenience it is proposed to build a protecting wall and sink another well near it; to tore for an inexhaustible well near the standpipe; to build a reservoir at the springs; to raise the present pumping plant, w’ith the machinery another story. To do the work would take $5,000 or $6,000, to he raised by bonds.
