The Michigan Engineers' Annual

Excerpt from The Michigan Engineers' Annual: Containing the Proceedings of the Michigan Engineering Society for 1895 Brooklyn is our only large city dependent upon a subter ranean supply, although in Europe, especially in Germany, this source of water is very extensively developed. The supply obtained at Brooklyn is from the sands underlying the sur rounding country through which the rainfall on the interior of Long Island flows to the sea. Since the water-bearing sands are not overlaid with impervious strata a contamination of the supply is liable to occur as the territory from beneath which it is taken becomes populated. So that the solution of the prob lem of a water supply there requires the prevention of the set tlement of large portions of Long Island, or the establishment of artificial purification. 'in either case the reduction of the quantity consumed is of inestimable consequence. To Boston with works already costing $24, 000, 000, expending yearly from to in caring for the sewage of neighboring cities to protect the water supply which six years hence will be insufficient, with the prospect of increasing that supply if at all only at enormous expense, the question is of not less importance.
