Brecon, 1st Oct., 1863. CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Brecon Reporter." SIR During a short stay at Brecon, I have read the discussions on the proposed Waterworks. It does not appear to have occurred to the Gen- tlemen who administer the affairs of the Town, that every gallon of water they introduce, will eventually be converted into sewage, and that the banks of their beautiful rivers will be much dam- aged by this additional refuse. At the present time portions of the banks of the Usk and Honddu are injuriously affected by sewage and refuse, and it appears to me that the Rivers pollution Bill" will surely become law, as the natural consequence of the laws in force for the preservation of fish, on the same principle which caused the window tax to be repealed as the natural consequence of sani- tary legislation. The drainage of Brecon may be carried out with- out damage to the rivers, and with beneficial pecuniary results to the Ratepayers. The subject of the disposal of our Town's refuse is national in importance, and I have ventured to address you as a labourer in the field of sanitary engineering. I enclose my card. I remain, Sir, Your obedient servant, LK 8 T. C. E.
