ST ASAPH (DENBIGH) RURAL DISTRICT COUNCIL. RHYDYFOEL AND LLANDDULAS WATER SUPPLY. ISOLATION HOSPITAL SCHEME APPROVED, Mr J. D. Jones presided at the monthly meet- ing of this Council on Friday, and Mr Wm. Jones occupied the vice-chair. A vote of sympathy with Mr Salusbury (Llan- nofydd) in his illness was unanimously passed. ALLEGED HEAVY TRAFFIC ON ROADS. The Council discussed the question of a claim against a mining company in respect of alleged heavy traffic on the roads, and Mr Davies said that while he averted to being too hard on an industry which was to benefit the district, he considered that they should now press their claim, especially as the heavy traffic was continuing, and the Surveyor had put down 400 yards of mac adam and wanted another 200 yards for the roads. It was decided that ..JlO Clerk should take the matter in hand. WATER SUPPLY TO RHYDYFOEL. The Surveyor (Mr Evans) stated that he had taken guagings at Nant Fawr springs, and also at the River Dulas with a view to ascertaining the best means of supplying Rhydy'foel with water. He found that over two years the yield from Nant Fawr was 12,000 gallons per day, and from the River Dulas 76,000 gallons in a like per.od. Tho estimated requirements were 5000 per day, and while the Nant Fawr springs were high enough for the water to flow by gravita- tion there was also sufficient water in the River Dulas to supply the district and to work the jumps. Both supplies had been analysed, and found to be good, but the water from the river T, jj^ave 1)0 be teken above the village of Llanddulas. The Vice-chairman said ho considered that the Nant Fawr supply waa the better one. On being asked which would be the cheaper scheme, the Surveyor said he had not gone into those figures: all he had done was to take guagings. The Clerk pointed out that many years ago, when the question was raised o'f supplying Llan. ddulas with water, the Rural Sanitary Authority insisted upon the village taking the supply from Rbyl, but the villagers protested and refused to pay the water rate, contending that the river water was good. The Authority considered it was liable to pollution. The Nant Fawr supply would save the cost of pumping. Mr John Jones did not think it would be pos- sible to obtain sufficient water from Nant Fawr without interfering with the supply to farms. The Surveyor replied that the farmers would be supplied from the pipes which would be laid Mr Davies considered that they were causing unnecessary alarm. He knew as much about the affair as anyone, although he did not wish to speak for the Llanddulas people. At the present time they were getting for the district plenty of water from Cwymp, and they had to realise the fact that either Llanddulas would have to lay a new main from Abergele or Glascoed, or they would have to obtain a supply of water elsewhere. It was suggested that the people of Rhydyfoel and the district where he lived should oo-operate with Llanddulas in obtaining a supply of water other than from the Rhyl mains. At the present time Llanddulas paid Rhyl about 2100 per annum, and a new scheme to supply the whole district oould be obtained for about £4000, so tha.t it would bo better to defer the matter in order that the scheme could be gone into. Canon Roberts said the matter was referred to in tho medical officer of health's report, and the Local Government Board were pressing thai something should be done. It was eventlially decided to defer the matter. The Clerk: I do not know what the Local Government Board will say. We have deferred it for two years now. Mr J. Roberts: Wait and seo (laughter). LLANDDULAS ROADS. A discussion arose as to the completion of the sewerage works at Llanddulas, and Canon Ro. berts said tho people had cause for complaint that the reads were left in a bad condition. The Surveyor was directed to take the matter in hand. THE ISOLATION HOSPITAL QUESTION. The Council considered the question of the pro- posed isoiafcon hospital, and agreed to tho re- commendation of tho Joint Hospital Committee that a building be erected at a cost not exceed- ing £800. The matter will now come before the Flint Rural District Council
