The subject of the disposal and the purification
of sewage is one that has of late
years received the clo?e attention of the
greatest scientists. More especiallj- is
this the case in the United Kingdom. It
will be my endeavour this evening to describe
a few of the various methods adopted
for purifying the sewage, and the agencies
whereby this state is brought about,
together with various methods of disposal
in use in various parts of the worlci. For
much of the information contained in this
paper (for which I claim no originality)
1 am indebted to the work by Mr. Dibdin
on the purification of sewage and water. A
very great deal of useful matter was also
obtained from a recent "'Report on the
Latest Methods in use in the United Kingdom
and elsewhere/' by Mr. J, Davis, M.
Inst. C.E., who was until lately Engineering
Chief for Sewerage Construction in New
South Wales.
