Abstract

Read at Special Meeting-May.
A great deal of the discussion that has taken place upon the subject of
the suggested methods of disposing of the sewage of the Metropolitan
Drainage Area has been based upon ignorance of what has been proposed,
and of the conditions under which the proposals have been made.
I have suggested three methods for the disposal of the sewage : — First,
its purification by filtration through land at an irrigation farm ; second,
its purification by precipitation ; and third, its discharge, after being
screened, into the tideway of the Derwent.
