Mayor Reports On New City Council [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus — 20 September 1950

New Tity .ouncil This week I wish to report further in connection with the proposed Liquefaction Depot to take the place of a Sanitary Depot. Approxiately two years ago, several councils (Ryde, Dundas, Ermington and Rydalmere and Parramatta) gathered together with the idea of creating a depot of this kind that the sewer might be used instead of contaminating a tract of country. The job was left in the hands of Dundas Council, which im mediately set about the taesk. We resumed sufficient land in Cowell's Lane to enable a fine building to be erected and for the camouflaging of it by means of playing fields and gardens, so that in that way less notice would. be taken of it. We are as sured by the engineers that there would not be 'any unhealthy odour -beyond the walls of the building and that it will not be a niuisarce to anyone in the vicinity.
