Test Pump Operates Early this week a test pump was put in operation. For the first few hours, the pump delivered 500 gallons per minute. The speed was increased and for a period of more than 24 hours 600 gallons gal-lons per minute was delivered deliver-ed The tempo was stepped up to 1800 revolutions and at this speed the test pump is delivering 940 gallons per minute, which is 42 gallons per minute more than 2 second sec-ond feet of water. The draw-down after eight hours of pumping at this rate m slightly over 3 feet. The circumstances indicate an ample supply f o water. The well was drilled in a 12-inch casing for the first 299 feet at which point a 10-inch 10-inch casing was used for the rentainder of the depth of 168 feet To Cost $10,000.

Water samples have been sent to the State chemist but at this writing no report of the test had been received. re-ceived. The water is clear without with-out any trace of sediment. Old Well Pumps Sand. Site of the new well is a few feet north and east of the old well which was drilled in 1934 The old well was known as a "sander" and was but 100 feet deep and in the course of its operation it clogged with sand some of the city water lines as well as water meters. Power Cost Undetermined. Until the well actually gets into operation the actual power cost will not be definitely known, but it is estimated that water can be pumped from the well at approximately three cents per 1,000 gallons. The city now charges its citizens ten cents per 1,000 gallons for the first 15.000 -gallons; above that quantity the rate sharply decreases. If the well goes into production produc-tion next Saturday, it will come in a nick of time as the recent hot weather has made a heavy demand on the City's water sup-uly. sup-uly. The city has a Deer Creek supply in addition to the springs in Provo Canyon, but because of a bottleneck in the city mains between the 8th East and the city reservoir, it has not been possible to deliver to the rest of the distributing system all the water actually available. The city main from 8th East to the reservoir is only 12 inches whereas a line of 18 inches or better is necessary to deliver full supply. Couldn't Get Pipe. It has been impossible for a number of years to get pipe because be-cause of war conditions, and relief re-lief of this bottleneck condition has been put off from time to time. The new well is some distance below the bottleneck on the line Being directly connected with the cny mams it will not be in any way affected af-fected by the smaller pipe. It is expected that a partial closing clos-ing of a check valve in the main line at 8th East and Canyon Road will be sufficient to force a large supply of water into the 8th East line and thus relieve the water shortage in east and south Orem- The new well will take care of the remaining portions por-tions of the city west of 8th East, supplemented as it will be with part of the supply from the city reservoir and springs. Members of the City water committee, in addition to Mr. Stratton, chairman, are Wood-row Wood-row Jensen, Hugo Price and J. W. Gillman, mayor.
