Water Supply.—During the year 35 premises were reported to us by
the East London Water Works Company as having had the water
supply cut off. The premises were at once visited and intimation sent
to the owner, with the result that in all cases with one exception the water
supply was reinstated within a day or two.
In the exceptional case, the right of occupying of the premises was in
dispute, and the premises remained without a water supply for some
weeks, until the legal question was settled.
Fourteen samples of water from the mains of the East London Water
Works Company were submitted for analysis; 11 for chemical, and
3 for bacteriological examination.
The following matters, as to which notices had been ordered by the
Council, were still outstanding at the close of the year.
Particulars as to proceedings, &c., will be found in the following table:—
