Water Softening Plant

From details presented by the Surveyor to the Urban Council it is evident that the softening plant installed to treat the water from the Cadeby boreholes is effective.

An analysis of this water made in 1897 gives 28.1 grains for solids per gallon after evaporation, while two quite recent analyses give 20.09 and 17.82 grains of solid matter per gallon respectively.

The discrepancy between the two last results is due to the fact that the softening material used in the plant becomes less effective after a time.

The 17.82 grains were obtained after the softener had been newly charged, the higher figure after the softening matter had been in use much longer.
