THE WATER SUPPLY. To the Editor. Sir —By your report of the Borough Council meeting, Mr. Bullock is represented to say that I reported in January, 1879, that the water supply scheme now adopted was impracticable, and that it was in consequence abandoned for the permanent one. This is not exactly correct. I did not report • against it as impracticable, but suggested it as a temporary plan, and was actually engaged in working up the details at the time the Council threw it overboard on the grounds of its being only temporary. I would add that the present idea of tapping the mill race near Mr. Williamson’s homestead was suggested by me, as an alternative plan, to the County Council in 1878. I am, Ac., Chas. E. Fooks. Ashburton, March 10th, 1830.
