G F Deacon's significant paper on the construction of The Vyrnwy Works for the Water Supply of Liverpool may be found in the Proceedings of the Institution (Volume 126 Issue 1896, pp 24-67) While his paper, quite rightly, focuses on the construction of the works, this talk looks not just at aspects of the scheme's construction but at some of the factors that led to the promotion of a water supply that enabled Liverpool to have sufficient water availability for the next 60 years.
How did Deacon's ingenuity bridge the gap between the lack of adequate water in the 1860's – prompting Liverpool's Medical Officer of Health, Dr Trench to inform a Government Committee that "Had we had sufficient water in 1866 many hundreds of lives would have been saved" - to Vyrnwy coming on-line in the early 1890's?
Finally, we will consider Deacon's career both in Liverpool and in his consultancy in Westminster.
