Book of the Week 3.

Sixth Report of The Commissioners Appointed in 1869 to Inquire into the Best Means of Preventing the Pollution of Rivers. The Domestic Water Supply of Great Britain. 1874.

This remarkable report is worth it weight in gold to me as it gives information on water resources from unusual sources and remarkable historical detail on the local supplies to towns and villages across Britain.

There are maps of rainfall, geology and hydrogeographic details. These maps and the text include the whole of Ireland as they were produced long before the founding of the Republic.

Sustainable supplies from mines and quarries, rivers and well. The supply to Royal Palaces and to prisons.
