The Surveyor's report was as follows:—To the Mountain Ash Local Board, Gentlemen, 1. In ac- cordance with your orders I beg to submit for your approval plans, specification and form of tender for the erection of Field's automatic flashing chambers. II. I have examined the sewers in the district with respect to the further ventilation of the same, and am of the opinion that for the effectoal discharge of gas from the sewers it will be necessary to construct twenty-seven additional ventilators in accordance with the plans prepared aDd estimate of cost and a list showing the places where I would recommend such ventilators should be erected.
