At the Pedro Miguel and Miraflores Locks the water saving campaign was con-
tinued throughout the month, advantage being taken of every practical opportunity
to economize. This has resulted in saving considerable water as may be seen from
the above tabulation showing the water used for lockages at these locks and at
Gatun. This water saving is, however, at the expense of additional wear on operating
machinery and loss of time for ships and lock operating crews.
