The Akaroa Mail. TUESDAY, JULY 20, 1915. LAKE COLERIDGE SUPPLY FOR THE PENINSULA.

.f- 'M> cp tn >hp -'iipp.ly of pketrieity it >tn the Lake Coleridge s upply hag been nine fhan successful, and it seems apparent from Mr Bi'ks , remarks that fb« Ppnin.aiila requirements in the and Akaroa Counties and , b Akaroa Borough are much greater hrtn he anticipated. He has made no I 1 1' finite Ptu'ement yet, however, but he gave the different delegates to un« derntand that the visible supply even in the Akaroa County wag quite large enough to warrant the line. There is much detail to be gone into after Mr Birks has investigated the Peninsula requirements, and the Public Works Department have decided to erect the Peninsula line. The control for the Peninsula supply is chief among these, and it will have to be decided whether one local body will control the whole affair or whether each district will undertake its own control. The reticulation of the district is another big question, and it seems necessary that expert advice should be employed for such a question It appears to us that the fairest way for all concerned is to raise a loan to carry out the whole of the reticulation, and if a large supply is going to reduce the ourrent rates the more reticulation that can ba done within reasonable distance of the local power wires, the greater will be the benefits to all consumers. The controlling authority or authorities have a great deal of detail to undertake, and will, no doubt, with Mr Birks' assistance be able to model the scheme to the best advantage for all ooncerned. We will have now to wait for Mr Birks' report upon the Peninsula proposition, and .we hope when it arrives the work of linking up Banks Peninsula with the Lake Coleridge pystera will be carried to a puccQPsfu! issue.
