The largest , the costliest and best niter
plant In the world has Just been completed
at Davenport , la. Pracllcal men. whoso
experience has made their opinions worthy
of respectful attention , say that this plant
really solves the water supply question for
nearly All western cities. The cost of the
plant Is $1,200.000. The ten double filter
shells , which contain the Immediate water
supply , have ti capacity of 7,500.000 gallons.
The Mississippi river Is the source froTn
which the water supply originally conies ,
relates the Chicago Times-Herald The
water Is drawn from a point In the bed of
the river nearest the channel down Into a
tunnel that passes under the river's bed for
a considerable distance. Through this tun
nel It sweeps to the pump wells , and Ihenco
Inlo Iho filters There Is no danger of con
tamination , as far as the sewage Is con
cerned , for the point In the river ftom which
water Is secured Is a mlle and n half above
the government bridge and the point at
which the Davenport sewers enter the river.
At this same point the Mississippi has a
current of about five miles an hour , and
dashes over the Rock Island rapids , giving
it complete aeration , oxidation and dilution
all of which tend lo Its implication.
The filter plant Is In Itself a most niar-
> clous sight. Kach of these shells Is nine
and a half feet In diameter and thirty-two
feet long They are built of homogeneous
steel of tensile strenglh. The wnler com
pany has so far built about thirty-seven
miles of mains , Into which the purified water
flows from the filters
Despite the fact that there are ten filter
shells , so dellcato Is the construction , from
a mechanical standpoint of the entire plant ,
that the filters can bo used either ono at a
time or In their entirely , as circumstances
may make It advisable As an Indication of
the effort that has been made to provide
this plant with every possible means of
nurlfylng the water , It may bo stated that
each filter Is about tnree-quarters tun 01
white sand , amounting to about thirty car
loads for all the fillers
This sand la broughl from Horn Island , In
the Gulf of Mexico. The peculiar nature of
this sand Is that each grain Is of almost
equal lexture and a perfect crjstal. This Is
brand new. and a very costly departure. The
eidlnary sind that is used for filtering pur
poses is porous , and therefore docs not In all
respects answer the requirements Th's.
however. Is the first tlnif tint a city of any
sbc has so filtered lt water supply
It must be remembered that water alwajs
contains microbes Some-tlincs Ihey are so
Infinlteslmally small that only a magnlfjlng
glcM of exceeding poiscr'wlll ' detect them
If there were not sand In the filters that w.v
absoluloly Impervious ' , lo the allarks of the
microbes , these little pccds of death would
be quite lll'ely to find todgnient In the pores
of the sind There tlrey would die and tot.
und In a short lime tln ediul would beco no
a fruitful source of dloepAe , rather than a
plant to purify water/ This Is why Hotn
Island sand Is used In'TJavfonrorl. '
If all th" livers In tin ; country , barring the
Chicago river , had been considered as a max
imum trst for this big plant , no better selec
tion could have been m.iilei than llie Missis
sippi river. While the bell of this river Is
composed to a great extent of constanlly
shifting sand , there It At , all tlmcis a pro
nounced sediment In the jvalcr which give *
It that peculiar jellowlSh color , which hai )
made It famous as life only' real water In
America that hardly resembles water at all ,
with the exception thai It la liquid In form
Al cerluln beasons of the jcar. If a glass be
filled wllh Mississippi river water and al
lowed to stand for a few'moments It will be
found that almost onc-fourlh o ; the glacn
from U.o bottom up wilt contain liquid mud
That Is why It U so often said that the pei-
sons who drink unllltcred Mississippi river
water absorb their peck of dlit every forly-
So the task of tlio big filter plant at Davenport -
e-nport Is no light one , and the amount of
dirt and Impurities Ihat are removed from
thn 7,500,000 gallon ? Die fillers contain Ir
naturally tremendous In quantity. E'poMally
doen this fact prove Impressive when It Is
coiuildered that the 7f.00.000 gallons the
filters hold simply constitute the amount that
is in them at all times. Of course the water
Is constantly changing Kvery moment It Is
belnir nuinocd out Intel the thlrtv-pmnn
miles of mains that wind like ) snakes beneath
the surface of Davenport's etreetB To filter
the entire witcr supply of a city Is a gigantic
The method of filtration Is Interesting and
entirely new , because it must be remem
bered that there Is not In exli'tence any
filtering plant that approaches this In mag
nitude or completeness In the way of pos
sessing every icqulElto for removing Im
purities from watoi In the drat place , the

the tunnel beneath the rher'o bed. Is fotccd
by pumps through twenty-Inch feed mains
Into the filters. Then It passed downward
through five feet of sand , and thence through
a peculiar shaped screen , consisting of ex
tremely fine pllts saw eel through cylinders
of heavy seamless tubing. After this It goes
Into the mains and Is forced out to the con
No.v look at the water and compare It
with the muddy , amber-colored fluid that
flows into the filters from the tunnel. It
has become as bright , as clear and as spark
ling ns If U catno from a spring
The sediment and all the microbes that the
unfiltcred waler yields necescarlly remain
on lop of the sand in the filters H Is In
the economical and certain removal of this
Impure matter that the chief excellence of
till * great plant lies. The progress of cleans
ing the Kind is not unlike that operative
In hdraullc mining Thousands of fine ,
powerful Jets of waler are applied directly
to the place wbcio the Impurities are located
At Iho same time tlie sand Is washed by
forcing the water upward through the bed
pf sand , Instead of allowing the waler lo
pcnelralp from , the top to the. bottom. Of
course this procesu renders It necessary for
pome of the water thatj has been rendered
pure to bo forced biclj. but It Is filtered
niraln. and tliere.fnrn nothlnir la renllv In t.
These Jota of w"a/eiJ.iiat ; are ) ueed In

Iho perforalcd aims refened to are forced
downward and. back vtlirough thu tillering
