The health hazards of water pollution due to the addition of wastes to streams and bodies of water are explained, Danger to water purification plants exists wherever a water-supply is taken from a sewage-polluted stream. More rigid demands upon the operation of sewage-treatment plants are certainly in prospect. Not much longer will the haphazard operation of small sewage plants be tolerated. The demands of the public are steadily growing more and more definite and, if the objective of avoiding legal controversy is the one which appeals to those in responsible charge of the affairs of a community, then adequate methods of disposal of wastes of all sorts will need to be installed and operated in an efficient manner. Purification of community and industrial wastes must eventually be undertaken in almost all communities. Rational handling of the equipment must then follow.
