The in;ake bas been built up Grehan Valley, •>owe chain 9 above the residence of Me S McNab. There i 8 some good solid concrete work at the intake, and the borough foreman, who superintended fha work, decided to pat in a better filter, which will not need 60 much attention as the Baigueri cr.eek one. An arrangement has been made by him the whole of the creek do*B no; run past tbe litter, a pipe tapping the stream before it reaches the irtike, and shooting the water over into (be creek below.

Both creeks now will not feel the burden very much after a week or two unless the weather remains very dry. Tbe sump is,another good piece of concrete work, and, considering everything, fee linking up of Grehan Valley creek hn« taken very little time.
