CHLORINE PLACED IN COUNTY WELLS

Department of Health Moves Swiftly to Prevent Disease

The Health department of Washington county announced last night that wells in the flood areas of Williamsport, Hancock and other sections of the county would be chlorinated as rapidly as possible. Persons wanting their wells chlorinated should call the offices of the Health department, phone 143.

Lime will also be furnished through the Red Cross for flooded cellars to prevent disease.

Dr. W. Ross Cameron, County Health officer, yesterday visited Hancock where many were immunized against typhoid fever.

Health officials have been acting with speed in carrying out a sanitation program to prevent any epidemics. The local officials have been working day and night in speeding that work.
