CORRESPONDENCE. WATER SUPPLY. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Portland Observer and Normanby Advertiser — 26 January 1914
COURRE S PU N DENCE It is to be distinctly. understood that we in uo uay identifyourselves with the opinion expressed by our correspondents. WATER SUPPLY. (To the Editor.) Sir,-One of the first things that strike a visitor when he lands hero is the absence of a water supply.' I have mob several lately who came from smal!er places than Portland, and a'l expressed astonishment that an old established town like Portland was without a regular water suppty. Their surprise, however, is short-lived when they learn that the cheapest scheme yet offered to us (and that too for water that would have to be artificially softenel) would mean a rate of 4/ in £. They seem to be all agreed that a rate of 2/ in the £should to the lim!t. But if 2/ be made' the limit beyond which we shou'd not go .we shall have to wait until the ratable value of the town is double of what it now is. The question then arises, Can we afford to wait so long, shutting our eyes to the danger which hourly threatens us from f...
