THE BRIDGEND SEWAGE ¡ SCHEME. I The various efforts to dispose -af the sewage of j the tfswn of Bridgend have beeR numerous, and j muck time, labour, aud some amount of money j have been spent without, so far, bringing any single scheme to maturity. The processes of filtration and irrigation have, however, been set on side, with the view of ultimately adopting a met&od of carrying the sewage te the sea. Tlte majecity of -tiie members of the Bridgend Leoal Boardsome tijne age, to this latter mode, and have more recently -I:vd under consideration a plan, received in con- sequence of a premium of 20 -guineas, offecod by tfce Locail Board oonjoiatly with the Rural Sanitary Authority, the latter body also desir- ing co convey -the sewecc^ge of AberkelÍégo district to the sea. The laat3 .referred to were reported on ;JJy Mr.. Chatterton, C.E-, who, how- ever,-disapproved of thhe ;proposal to store over- flow in pipes, as being kkely to raise .dififculties for Lajck of capacity. Tfc-.is scheme .probably remains in tbbeyance c-atil ,a.Bi4ither tLLii,p shall be sentircm the .office of the Local Covera inent Board. In ,tihe meantime public attention h.as just t;een directed to an alternative plan for providing storage-for tewag3 when the natural fleav is checked by .tidal infinerces. 'rk-e.ineth,Ll be. mcaiii., of an inter- mittent tank a lieu. ■« £ pipes; the retaining taclc to be constructed on Plorin Island ill the .iiiver Ogmnee, and tofck; haw, been demonstrated by Me. David iLewis, enae of che members ni the Local Itoard.cf Bridgmd. to jhis coadjutors. The model hekas designed illustrates tile metfc-od by which Mr, Low is proposes to u-edaceiie cost of one portion of the works by .at lease one-half. In the complete scheme submitted to tihf authorities two sets cf pipef: are consented with the retaining tank oG:ne h-, i, for carrying away tae sewflge. the othsc for temporarily disposing of the overflow wfea .the tide .checks tÚe natural I ftow. M-c. Lewis prqpates to io away with one set of di;-3ii pipes; and thus reduce tke cost, as I already stated, by :#!le half a&- this means a big j fig-ure because o:' -the great circumference of-j piping aied the leagth to be covered. about 1$^ 4 miles. Msr. Lewis jwopoees to eenvey tbt; sewage into » retaining tank- otter it h:1.ti been deprived of 5 all floatie-g substattc.es by being screened in a subsidiary wink. Tfce latter can be easily relieved of the aoeemulated substances oci all necessary occasions. From this subf/diary tank the liquid sewage is passed into the retaining tauk. jjowing- thence into A pipe of krgeduimeter. This sewage thence into A pipe of krgeduimeter. This sewage would retnaiii in suspense so long as the natural c'low was blocked by the tide. When the tide recedes, the outlet would be automatically opened &nd the sewage again discharged with the flowing tide. Under Mr. Lewu*# scheme., provision is nsnde for any overflow or storm water. It only deals with a difficulty which Mr. Chatterton has raised in his report, but as it is a matter which involves a safeguard, is self-acting, and. as is claimed for it. gu-eat saving in the o-utlay. it is a I inetVod which deserves the consideration of the authorities which it will no doubt obtain.
