Municipal water supplies of Illinois

 Volume/Number:  1908  
 Time Period Covered:    
 Issuing Agency:  Illinois State Water Survey 
 Description:  For more than ten years the State Water Survey has been making analyses of the various waters used by the people of the State. The work has been carried on in accordance with an Act of the Fortieth General Assembly entitled An Act to establish a chemical survey of the waters of the State of Illinois." This report contains data concerning the source of the water supplies and the quality of the water of cities which according to the census of 1900 had more than 1,000 inhabitants. The data concerning the supplies was obtained by correspondence with water works officials or city officers. Three series of letters were sent out and a direct-report, more or less complete, has been received from all but fourteen of the cities having more than 1,000 inhabitants. In a few instances data have been taken from previous works which treat of the municipal water supplies of Illinois. In nearly every case we have confirmed the data thus taken. There are also included analytical data which have been obtained by the survey since its foundation in 1897 to the end of 1906.
