Abstract

This preliminary survey and study was conducted to estimate the cost for a water supply scheme to pump water from Lake Erie and supply the water requirements of the city of St. Thomas and vicinity, and provide for future expansion for the next 25 years. An alternate proposal is made on a plan to provide extension further inland to the London area. The study covers four alternative schemes, which for convenience have designated as A, B, C, and D. Scheme A - Municipal Water Supply for St. Thomas and bordering areas along the way; Scheme B - Municipal Water Supply for St. Thomas and London and bordering areas along the way; Scheme C - same as Scheme A with additional capacity for irrigation between Lake Erie and St. Thomas; and Scheme D - Some as Scheme B with additional capacity for irrigation in rural areas between Lake Erie and London. The present submission herein is Part I of our preliminary report and deals only with Schemes A and B.
