1882 Obituary [1]

. . . In 1870 Mr. Seaton obtained the post of assistant-engineer to the Pest Waterworks, and during his four years' residence on the Continent he was employed in making plans and estimates for waterworks in many of the principal towns in Austria, Hungary, and Russia.

In June 1874 he was appointed assistant-engineer to the East London Waterworks Co, and in the following year engineer-in-chief, and in that capacity designed and successfully executed extensive additions to the works at Lea Bridge, Woodford, and Buckhurst Hill, including filter-beds, covered reservoirs, a high-service tank, and two sets of pumping engines.

Mr. Seaton was permitted by the directors to act as consulting engineer to the Turin Waterworks, and he revised the plans of the Italian engineers. . . .
