great number of houses in Conway Road had been connected. These were all re-connected with the 6in. main, the result being that the water-supply to this part of the district has been greatly improved. The water-supply of this district is conveyed by a 6in. cast-iron main conduit from Sarn Mynach to the bottom of Rhiw Road, at which point it is then reduced to four inches diameter with two short intermediate lengths of 6in. pipes till it reaches the Eastern boundry at Llysfaen, the length of the whole being about 5 miles to this main I have no less than 43 separate branch- mains connected, of a diameter of three and four inches, the total length of the whole of the water- mains under my management being as follows 6in. main 8544 lineal yards 4in., 3633 do. 3in., 14580 do. 2in., 160 do. 8in., 500 do., from Groes pump total, 27,417 lineal yards, or about 15i miles of water-mains. With these figures before the Council will clearly observe that the 6in. main from Sarn Mynach is beyond a doubt too small for the requirements of this District, and I greatly regret that nothing definite has been decided on, by either this Council or the Cowlyd Board, with a view to laying a larger main from Sarn Mynach. This question is of much greater urgency than the Council have any idea, and I should have been pleased if a start had been made with this work for the coming season. HIGHWAYS. Numerous improvements have been effected on the highways, and amongst the most impor- tant was the opening of the new Eirias Bridge for traffic in August last, the same proving a great convenience to the public, with two six-feet parapets on each side, and a carriage way of 20 feet, altogether 32 feet in width, as compared with the old bridge, which is only 15 feet wide and very dangerous for traffic 1563 superficial yards of new footpaths were constructed during the year, and 829 lineal yards of kerbs and channels were laid down 27 new gullies were fixed and connected with the sewers in different parts of the district, and the kerbing and channel- ling were taken up and re-laid in the several streets where the same had become faulty. The footpaths were also repaired and re-gravelled in Abergele road, Conway road, Station road, Lawson-road, Greenfield-road, Woodland-road, and Penrhyn-road. Station Road, Colwyn, has been kerbed, channelled, and made up at a cost of £327. This is i a very great improvement at this end of the District, the same being previously only about 14 to 16 feet wide, now it has footpaths on each side, 6 feet wide, and a carriage-way 24 feet wide. The total length of highways within the District is as follows :-Main roads, 4 miles; other roads, 34 miles total, 38 miles. STREET LIGHTING. We have now within the District 148 lamps, divided as follows Colwyn Bay-gi single, 6 double, and [ treble- burner gas-lamps, 4 oil-lamps, which makes 102 in Colwyn Bay. Colwyn-25 single-burner gas-lamps, and 9 oil- lamps, or 34 in all at Colwyn. Rhos-6 single-burner gas-lamps. Mochdre-6 oil-lamps.
