Water tanks and water stations

Postby OvidPete » Thu Feb 25, 2016 9:21 pm

About 10 years ago I went to Harrisburg PA to examine the Lehigh Valley holding at the State Archives looking for any info on the ROW. I found some information on the various water tanks along the LV in the Finger Lakes. I put the info into a file and only came across it a couple of days ago. Several different water station reports were used. I am not sure that all the data is accurate or exactly what some of it means such as the entries for pipe diameter and spouts. If anyone out there is interested here is what I found. If anyone can make more sense of it please try.
