This system wRI serve every street In the village, unit will prob- ably work entirely hy gravity, and at •the disposal plant the Imhoff tank sys- tem will probably he used. This is the concensus of the conference which the Village Board and a number uf engi- neers held Tuesday night. Those who appeared before the trustees were Franklin H. Smith, Charles Miller and William Seaman, Sewer Commissioners of l'ort Wash- ington ; Albert W. Heinphlll, a New York engineer who has done consider- able sewage work in the south ; Clyde Potts, u New York engineer who has installed many plants In the eastern tales; und Harold Stevens, also a New York engineer. The trustees took data as to the location of tilts •nrious type* of plants described, so that they can be in- spected to sec-ure tirst hand Informa- tion, and as to the types, amoii.it, and probable coat of the various equip- ment required under each system. When u thorough investigation, iius been made by tin- board, au estimate will be secured of the probable cost of a complete system, and a proposi- tion will be submitted at a special election mi the question of raising the amount needed by a bund issue, and proceeding with the work of installing the system.
