16,073 tons of house and trade refuse was collected, and almost the
whole of it was burnt in the Destructor without any nuisance.
The roads have been well maintained, and the cleansing and lighting
are satisfactory.
No complaints have been received as to nuisance on the Farm, or
arising from the tanks, or the effluent.
At my visits none existed.
The negotiations that have been undertaken in connection with the
admission of the sewage of the district into the main drainage system of
the Metropolis are likely to be soon successful and a long standing
difficulty satisfactorily solved.
The existing drainage and sewerage systems are satisfactory and no
complaints have been received from householders.
The following Table filled in for your district gives the
information as required by the Home Office:—
