The report pertains primarily to intensive studies conducted at Argentia, Newfoundland during the period August 20 to August 31, 1954. The number of planktonic algae in the tap water at Argentia Naval Base was determined. Diatomite filtration was proved effective in removal of algal forms present in the water received at the naval base power station during the period of the test. Limited tests on small scale showed efficient removal of algae by coagulation and sedimentation. Survey of the naval base water supply from the standpoint of potability consisted of an inspection of the physical facilities at Clarks Pond pumping station and review of available bacteriological and residual chlorine records.
