//^^- SEVENTH ANNUAL EEPOET 



BOSTON WATER BOARD, 

FOE THE YEAR ENDIM APRIL 30, 1883. 



Office of the Boston Water Board, 

October 12, 1883. 

To the City Council of the City of Boston : — 

The Boston Water Board herewith submit the seventh 
annual report, together with reports from the City Engineer, 
Clerls of tlie Board, Water Registrars, and the Superintend- 
ents of the several divisions. 

This report should have been submitted during the month 
of May. The delay arises because of the fact that all the 
transactions represented therein occurred under the admin- 
istration of the former Board ; and the members of the 
present Board were therefore under the impression that it 
should have been prepared and submitted by their predeces- 
sors in office. The Corporation Counsel, however, having 
informed them that they were not required to make the 
report, we respectfully submit the facts, with the report 
above named, in order that the requirements of the city 
ordinances may be met, and the record of the annual reports 
remain unbroken. 

WM. A. SIMMONS, Chairman. 

GEO. M. IIOBBS.

EEPOET OF THE CITY ENGINEER. 



Office of the City Engineer, 

City Hall, Boston, May 1, 1883. 

L. R. Cutter, Esq., Chairman Boston Water Board: — 

Sir, — In accordance with the requirements of the ordi- 
nance establishing tlie Boston Water Board, I respectfully 
submit the following report on the condition of the Water- 
Works : — 

SUDBURY AND COCHITUATE WORKS. 

The Sudbury-river reservoirs were full and overflowing 
on May 1, 1882. Waste was continued at Dam No. 1 until 
June 25, from which date until February 17, 1883, no water 
was allowed to flow into the river except the one and one-half 
millions per day required by law. Reservoir No. 1 was 
drawn upon for the supply of the city from July 26 to 
August 6, lowering its surface from grade 159 to 155. Since 
the latter date the only water drawn from this reservoir has 
been the one and one-half million gallons per day. 

On February 17, 1883, the waste-gates were opened, and 
on February 19 the reservoir was practically empty ; but on 
February 26 it had filled, and water was allowed to waste 
over the dam. 

Reservoir No. 2 was full on the 29th of June, when it was 
drawn upon for the supply of the city. During the months 
of July and August its surface gradually lowered, and on 
September 1 it was practically empty. Heavy rains during 
the month of September raised the reservoir surface about 
11 feet, and added about 300,000,000 gallons to the amount 
in store. 

On September 29 it was again drawn upon, and on Novem- 
ber 24 the surface had lowered to grade 154.46. The reser- 
voir was again allowed to fill, and on December 27 was within 
0.54 of the top of the flash-boards. Being then drawn upon 
again for the city's supply, its surface fell about 7 feet 
during the month of January to grade 159.00, near which point 
it remained until February 17 ; it then rose rapidly, so that

on the 20th water began to run over the dam, and has so 
continued to the present time. 

About 9,000 cubic yards of loam and muck have been 
removed from this reservoir during the year. 

Eeservoir No. 3 was overflowing on May 1, 1882, and it 
remained near high-water mark until July 22, when it was 
drawn upon for the city's supply. Between this time and 
September 22 its surface fell about 71- feet, standing on the 
latter date at grade 167.76. On November 24 it had risen 
to grade 173.04, and being then drawn upon fell about 6 
feet in the following month, reaching grade 167.07 on Decem- 
ber 27, — the lowest point during the year. 

No water has been drawn from this reservoir since that 
date, and its surface reached the crest of the dam on Feb- 
ruary 18, since which time water has been flowing over the 
dam. 

The following table and the diagram show the variations 
of the heights of water in the reservoirs and in Lake 
Cochituate : —

Lake Cochituate was 0.52 feet below high- water mark 
on May 1, 1882 ; on May 22 it had risen t"o 134.36, and 
waste was allowed until May 31. 

From June 10 until January 1, 1883, as will be seen 
by the diagram, there was a gradual lowering of lake surface. 
During January and a portion of February it remained 
near grade 126, touching the lowest point of the year, 
125.88, on January 20. 

On April 1 it had risen to grade 128.65, and as it was 
nearly six feet below high-water mark, it was evident that 
it would not fill iinless aided from the Sudbury sui)ply. 

During the month of April 967,900,000 gallons were 
run into the lake from the Sudbury river, and at the present 
time the lake surface is 0.65 feet below the top of the flash- 
boards. No water has been drawn from Dudley pond 
during the year. 

Surveys and borings were made during the month of 
March, 1882, in the vicinity of the present outlet dams, for 
the purpose of determining the most favorable location for 
a new dam. Plans for a new structure at this point have 
since been prepared, and an estimate of the cost of the same 
presented to your Board 

Aqueducts and Distributing Reseevoirs. 

The Sudbury-river aqueduct has been in use 358 days, 
the Cochituate aqueduct 361 days, during the year. The 
depths of water maintained in the aqueduct at the gate-house 
at Lake Cochituate have been as follows : May 1 to June 
10, 51 feet; June 10 to July 6, 7 feet; July 6 to August 
12, 5 feet; August 12 to August 31, 6 feet; August 31 
to September 6, 7 feet; September 6 to September 11, 8 
feet; September 11 to October 4, varying heights, fol- 
lowing the falling of the lake, October 4 to December 1, 
5^ feet; December 1 to February 25, varying levels cor- 
responding to the lake surface; February 25 to May 1,

5^ feet. Both of the aqueducts have been cleaned during 
the year, and are now in good condition. 

The various reservoirs connected with the works are in 
good condition. 

Highland High-Service Works. 

As will be seen from the table on page 26 almost all of the 
water supplied by these works, during the year 1882, was 
pumped with the Worthington engine. 

The total quantity of water pumped was 1,017,088,840 
gallons. 

Total coal consumed, 1,927,500 lbs., of which 13.2 per 
cent, were ashes and clinkers. 

Average lift, 111.75 feet. 

Quantity pumped per lb. of coal, 527.7 gallons. 

Average daily quantity pumped, 2,786,545 gallons, an in- 
crease of 15.7 per cent, over that of 1881. 

Average duty, 49,178,800 ft. lbs. per 100 lbs. of coal, 
without deduction for ashes and clinkers. As stated in last 
year's report, the coal supplied at this station is of poor quality.

An inspection of the boilers at this station has shown that 
four of them, or one-half the whole number, are so badly de- 
cayed as not to warrant further repairs. An estimate of the 
cost of replacing them with three larger boilers of improved 
form has been presented to your Board, and the work should 
be done at once. The engines and buildings are in good order. 

The average daily quantity pumped at the East Boston 
station has been 422,540 gallons. 

At the Brighton station the amount has varied from 90,000 
to 225,000 gallons. 

The machinery and buildings at both of these stations are 
in good order. 



MYSTIC WORKS. 

Mtstic Lake. 
On May 1, 1882, water was flowing over the outlet dam, 
and waste continued during the greater portion of the months 
of May and June. During July, August, and until Sept. 
11, the lake surface fell, and on the latter date stood at 
grade 2.40 above tide marsh level, or 4.60 feet below high 
water. On Oct. 1 it had risen to grade 4.15 ; on Nov. 1, to 
5.42 ; on Dec. 1, to 5.43 ; on Jan. 1, to 6.02 and on Jan. 22, 
waste was begun and has been continued (with the exception 
of a few days) up to the present time. 

Mystic- Valley Sewee. 
The sewer and its adjuncts, as described in my report to 
your Board for the year 1881-82, page 27, has been in good 
working order during the year. In July, 1882, the care of 
the sul)siding and filtering works in Winchester, w^iich had 
been for some time in regular service, was transferred from 
this department to the Superintendent of the Mystic Works. 



Eeport of the Water Boakd. 19 



Mystic Conduit and Eeservoirs. 

With the exception of three days, this conduit has been in 
constant service. 

Owing to the small capacity of the reservoir, the flow in 
the conduit cannot be interrupted for any length of time for 
examinations and repairs. This year it was cleaned as 
thoroughly as the short time at hand would allow, and I 
had a careful survey made of a short portion which was 
known to be in an unsatisfactory condition. The survey 
showed that a section of the conduit, 150 feet in length, is 
badly distorted and in an unsafe condition. I do not appre- 
hend any immediate danger; but, as a collapse of the conduit 
at that point would seriously interfere with the supply, the 
defective portion should be rebuilt during the coming season. 
The cost of this work will be increased by the necessity of 
maintaining the supply around the damaged portion of the 
conduitduringtherepairs. An amount covering the estimated 
cost of thoroughly repairing this section, is included in the 
the appropriation for the coming year. 

The reservoir and grounds have received the usual care. 

Distribution. 

The distributing pipes of the Cochituate works have been 
extended 29,316 feet, and the Mystic works 6,544 feet. 

The pipes ordered in view of the changes recommended in 
my letter to your Board of January 4, 1883, for the purpose 
of furnishino; greater facilities to the fire service, are beins^ 
laid, and it is expected that the improvements contemplated 
will be completed before the end of the year. 

Consumption. 

The average daily consumption during the year 1882 was 
as follows : — 

From Lake Cochituate and Sudbury river 31,970 800 

From Mystic lake .... 6,574 400 



Total 38,545 200 

an increase of 330,300 gallons per day, or about one per cent, 
over that of 1881, 

The daily average consumption per head of population has 
been 91 gallons from the Sudbury and Cochituate Works, 
77 gallons from the Mystic Works, and 88 gallons from the 
combined supplies. 



20 City Document No. 142. 

The consumption on the Highland high-service works 
shows a large increase over that of the previous year. The 
consumption of the year 1882 was 15.7 per cent, in excess 
of that of 1881, and the figures of the present year show 
about the s;mie percentage of increase over those of the 
corresponding months of 1882. 

Quality. 

The quality of the Mystic water has been good throughout 
the year. 

In the supply from Lake Cochituate, and from Sudbury 
river, with the exception of a short period during the summer, 
the objectional)le taste and smell, so conspicuously noticeable 
in the fall of 1881, has not been complained of. Alc/m, 
however, have made their usual appearance in Reservoirs No. 
1 and 3 of the 8udbury-river supply ; but Eeservoir No. 2, 
as heretofore, has been free from them. As in previous 
years, various theories have been advanced for the cause of 
their formation and growth and of the occasional bad taste 
of the water. In regard to this disputed subject, I beg to 
refer to the report (City Doc. No. 129, 1883) of the special 
commission in September, 1882, where new and valuable facts 
will be found in the testimony collected by the commission. It 
is probable, by the comparison of many facts bearing on this 
subject, that all the causes of the evil may be discovered. 

The trouble complained of in Boston is common to other 
places, differing in their climate, in the source, quality, and 
quantity of their supply, and in the nature and construction 
of their reservoirs. Various remedies have been tried which 
have been either inadequiite or partially successful. 

It can only be hoped that this important question may be 
solved in time by patient, systematic, and extended obser- 
vation. At present, the only positive remedy is, as I said in 
my last year's report, "the isolation, when practicable, of the 
reservoirs, or portions of the supply, which are contaminated. " 

In connection with the subject of the quality of water it 
may be added that, in pursuance of instructions received, 
extensive soundings were made last spring, to estimate the 
amount of mud found at the bottom of the large meadows 
adjoining Lake Cochituate and of Whitehall pond. The 
amount of vegetable loam or mud contained in the present 
Sudbury-river reservoirs was also computed. The results 
of this work are embodied in a letter addressed in April to 
the Joint Standing Committee on Water of the City Council, 
a copy of which was transmitted to your Board. (See City 
Doc. No. 188.) 



EePORT of the WiiTER BoARD. 21 



SuDBURY-RlVER EeSERVOIR No. 4. 

At the time of my last report to your Board the first prep- 
aration had been made on tlie site of the dam, and tlie trench 
excavation for the central wall had just been commenced ; 
Since then nearly 24,000 cubic yards have been excavated. 
As was expected, from the indications given by the soundings, 
the bed rock was reached at all points, but at a depth almost 
everywhere greater than was originally anticipated. This result 
is due to the fact that the solid ledo-e was found to be covered 
with a quantity of boulders, of all sizes, which had to be 
removed. In some cases the excess of depth was from 12 feet 
to 15 feet. A large portion of the trench was dug during the 
winter months. 

On May 1, 1883, the concrete wall, with the exception of 50 
feet, had been started on the whole rock bottom, and had been 
built for more than 1,200 feet to the original surface of the 
ground. 

The amount of concrete hiid at that time was 7,718 cubic 
yards. All the concrete has been made with mixers driven 
by steam-power. The up-stream face of the wall is covered 
with a plastering of Portland cement- mortar. 

The waste-way is completed, the overflow nearly so, and 
the gate-house has been commenced, and is now ready to re- 
ceive the large iron pipes which are to be laid in connection 
with it. 

The earth embankment has been started in the bottom of 
the valley, and as soon as the trendies are refilled to the 
original surface of the ground, its construction can proceed 
at a rapid rate. 

During the winter the stone-crusher used at Chestnut- 
Hill reservoir was transferred to Ashland, and fher(? are 
now 2,700 cubic yards of crushed stone stored ready to be used 
for making concrete. The crushed stone has been found bet- 
ter and more economical than screened gravel for concrete 
purposes. 

Loam, to the amount of about 20,000 cubic yards, is piled 
up in the meadow above the dam and ready to be removed 
over the railway track which extends along the valley. It is 
expected that in a few days a locomotive and cars will be 
procured to finish the ballasting of this track, and to make it 
ready for service. 

The construction of the foundations of the dam, the most 
difficult part of the work, is now mostly completed ; the rest of 
the structure, although of great magnitude, does not present 
the same difSoultjes, but will require dose supervision, 



22 City Document No. 142. 

mainly for the erection of the upper part of the concrete core. 
The completion of the dam, and the removal of the loam, 
especially if the City Government makes the appropriation 
necessary for stripping the entire area covered by the reservoir, 
involves the handhng of a vast amount of material, and the 
employment of a large number of men, and must be most sys- 
tematically organized in order to secure economical results. 

Waste. 

In view of the expected action of the City Government on 
the question of the waste of water, I need not add any com- 
ments to the frequent recommendations made by this depart- 
ment. 

In May, 1882, the Water Committee, under the instruction 
of the City Council, made a report on the waste of water, 
embodying important information, and some recommendations 
which were not adopted. 

Since then, on April 11, 1883, I furnished to the Water 
Committee, at its request, an estimate of the cost of adopting 
similar measures for the reduction of the water consumption; 
a copy of this letter has been transmitted to your Board. 

At your request the Deacon meters owned by the city 
were applied to the East Boston district, this spring, and are 
now in operation. Although the location of the service-cocks 
in the streets does not allow the same facihties as when they 
are located in the sidewalks for recording the individual waste 
of the consumers, the indications given by the meters are 
very valuable, and there is no doubt that the house-to-house 
inspection, in connection with the constant recording of the 
apparatus, will produce satisfactory results in checking the 
waste in this district. 

Conditions and Eequieements of the Woek. 

The Cochituate and Sudbury-river conduits, and the other 
structures belonging to the same system, are in good con- 
dition. 

The small fall of snow and rain during the last spring has 
been the cause of a great reduction in the usual flow of the 
streams, and Lake Cochituate would not have been retilled 
to high-water mark without the aid of Sudbury river. 

The insufficient capacity of the storage reservoirs, with the 
present consumption of water, remains a source of uneasiness 
in view of the possibility of a dry season, and of the time 
necessary for the completion of Eeservoir No. 4. 

The extensions and additions which I think desirable in 



R^POET or THE Water Bqard. ; 23 

, connection with the water supply are enumerated in my let- 
ter of February 14, in which I give to the Board an estimate 
of their cost. Among them are the new dam at the outlet 
of Lake Cochituate, in regard to which I would refer the 
Board to my annual report for 1879-1880, and the new 
pumping machinery for the Mystic water- works. 

Since my last report no action has been taken as to the 
policy to be followed in regard to the supply of East Boston. 
On one hand the experience of the summer of 1880, when 
Mystic lake was drawn down to an exceptionally low level, 
has shown that the yield of the water there is not sufficiently 
abundant in a dry year when East Boston is added to the 
district. On the other, if East Boston is left dependent on 
the Cochituate supply, the pressure is insufficient. 

Unless a direct pipe, connected with the Cochituate sys- 
tem, is laid to East Boston,- this district must be supplied 
again from the Mystic works, in which case an addition to 
that source of supply, such as can be had from the Shaw- 
shine river, is immediately needed. 

In either case, owing to the large consumption reached in 
the winter, the capacity of the pumping machinery must be 
increased. 

The connection of the two parts of the Sudbury-river con- 
duit across Farm pond was a part of the original design of 
the system, but it was not expected that its construction 
would be required so soon ;, the bad quality of the water of 
the pond in the fall of 1881 has shown the importance of pro- 
viding permanent means for the isolation of that sheet of 
water in case of emergency. This subject is familiar to the 
Board, and is now under consideration by the City Govern- 
ment. 

I cannot terminate this report without calling again the 
attention of the Board to the necessity of an increase in the 
capacity of the high-service works, Avhich is rendered more 
imperative by the high rate of increase in the consumption 
of water from that service. I need not recall the numerous 
statements made by my predecessor and myself, and the 
former recommendations made by the Board to the City Gov- 
ernment, in regard to the necessity of making an appropria- 
tion for building the proposed new works. I will only refer 
to my letter of March 12, 1883, in answer to a vote of your 
Board, in which I renew the expression of my opinion as to 
the necessity of commencing without delay the w^ork of con- 
struction. 

With this report will be found some statistical tables in 
regard to the rainfall, the consumption of water, the yield of 
the different water-sheds, etc., and a diagram pregenting a

synopsis of the fluctuations of the Sudbury-river reservoirs, 
and Lake Cochituate. 

Until the 1st of January, 1883, it had been found advisa- 
ble to keep several rain-gauges, in order to ascertain the 
variations of the water precipitation at various points of the 
watering shed of Sudbury river. 

These records were no longer thought necessary, and the 
persons in charge of the gauges have been discharged.

EEPOET or THE SUPERINTENDENT OE THE 
WESTERN DIVISION. 



Chestzstut Hill Eesekvoie, May 1, 1883. 

Leonard R. Cuttee, Esq., Gliairman Boston Water 
Board : — 

Sir, — In compliance with a rule of the Board, I submit 
herewith the annual report of the Western Division for the 
past official year : — 

Sudbuey-Eiver Basins. 

With the exception of a few weeks' time in the midsummer 
of 1882 the water in the Sudbury river has been good in 
quality throughout the year. 

AlgoB in considerable quantities made their appearance in 
Basin Nos. 1 and 3, as usual. They were at their worst during 
the last of July. In August a large amount of loam and 
muck was removed from Basin No. 2. The unusual droug^ht of 
the present fiscal year, January 1 to May 1, 1883, has given 
a very small flow in the Sudbury. Our average rainfall for 
the first four months of the year is about fifteen inches, and 
we are now five inches below this average. A large propor- 
tion of the surplus water of the river has been used to fill 
Lake Cochituate. These are the principal facts in regard 
to the Sudbury supply. A more detailed account will be 
found under each basin. 

Basin 1. 

On May 1, 1882, the surface of the water in this basin 
stood at elevation 159,59 above tide marsh, with water 
wasting over the flash-boards. Waste continued until June 
25. On July 26 a portion of the supply was taken from 
this source ; but on August 6 the gates were shut, at which 
time the grade of the surface was 155.11. This height was 
maintained with slight changes until February 17, when the 
flood-gates were opened and the surface fell to 147.10 on 
February 24, which was the lowest point reached during the 
year. A few days later the basin was filled, and water 



Eeport of the Water Board. 129 

wasted over the crest of the dam, which has contmued in 
varying quantities to the present time. The experiment was 
tried this year of running all tlie supply of the city through 
Basin 1 until it became evident that the water was de- 
teriorated by the process, when the supply was changed June 
29 to Basin 2. During the remainder of the year, with the 
exception above alluded to, viz. : July 26 to August 6, the 
water of this basin was used only for the supply of the river 
with the 1| millions per day which we are obliged by law to 
waste into the bed of the stream. 



Basin 2. 

Water has been drawn directly from this basin for the 
supply of the city from June 29 to July 27, from Augusf 5 
to September 2, from September 12 to September 14, from 
September 29 to November 24, and from December 27 to 
March 21. On May 1, 1882, the surface was at elevation 
107.34, and water was wasting over the flash-boards. This 
waste continued until June 29, when the basin was drawn 
upon and the surface fell steadily during the month of July 
until it reached grade 152.00, at which elevation it was kept 
while the excavations in the bottom were in progress. On 
September 14 the gates were shut, and the basin allowed to 
fill. On September 29 the surface had risen to 163.06, when 
it was again drawn upon for the supply. During the middle 
of February the basin filled rapidly, and on the 20th water 
began to run over the dam, and so continued to the present 
date. Besides the ordinary care and maintenance of the 
basin a great improvement was made around the margins by 
the removal of about nine thousand cubic yards of loam and 
muck, besides innumerable stumps, etc. The greater part 
of this muck was removed from that portion of the basin 
situated between the old Cutler mill site and the wooden 
dam and from two coves near Mr. Nevins' property. Ad- 
vantage was taken of the low sta;te of the water to repair the 
slope paving in several portions of the basin. 

During the winter, the men, when not otherwise em- 
ployed, have built a wall along Union street, in Ashland, with 
stones principally removed from the upper end of the basin. 
A settlement in regard to a right of way to Dam 2 has 
been efi*ected, and as soon as a road can be constructed 
through the Merriam farm the way will be available. With 
the exception of the maintenance of the existing structures 
connected with Basin 2 no other work of importance has 
been done at this point during the year. 



130 City Document No. 142. 



Basin 3. 



On May 1, 1882, this basin stood at elevation 175.42, and 
water was running over the dam. Waste stopped on June 
29. The surface of the water was kept at about the level 
of the overflow until July 22, when the water was drawn 
for the supply of the city. The lowest point reached during 
the year was grade 167.07, on Dec. 27, when the gates were 
shut and the basin filled to the top of the dam on Feb. 18. 
A small amount of water has been wasted from that date to 
the present time. The elevation of the surface is now 175.43. 
Water has been drawn from this basin from July 22 to July 
27, from xVug. 5 to Aug. 12, from Sept. 15 to Sept.. 29, and 
from Nov. 24 to Dec. 26. Algce were first noticed on July 
2*. By the middle of July they were found more plenti- 
fully. The water at the surface appeared to be of good 
quality to the taste while at a depth of 11 feet neither the 
odor nor the taste, was good. An improvement took place 
in the lower strata of water, and by the end of the first 
week in Auofust the odor and taste were not ofi^ensive. An 
examination of the water in Whitehall pond, made (m August 
10, showed the same state of affairs as in Basin 3. The pond 
was about 2 feet below high-water mark. At the surface the 
water had a pondy taste, and at a depth of 20 ft. the odor 
was ofTensive. Algce were found all through the water, but 
not in large quantities. It was found, when we were draw- 
ing from the surface of Basin 3, that the improvement of the 
upper layer of water did not keep pace with the lowering of 
the surface. The good water M^as about 6 feet in depth, 
when the gates were opened, and when the water had been 
drawn down 1.4 feet, the good water was about 5 ft. in depth. 
By Sept. 20 the water at the bottom of Basin 3 was good ; 
but algce were found at lower depths, which had not been ob- 
served before. No new work has been done during the year 
on this basin. The grounds, gate-houses, and iron-work 
have been kept up to the usual standard, and are now in ex- 
cellent order. The regular basin force has assisted at the 
cleaning of the aqueducts. 

Fakm Pond. 

This pond has been kept at about high-water mark during 
the entire year. The highest elevation of the surface was on 
September 24, 149.52, the lowest on August 24, 148.21. No 
recurrence of the cucuml)er taste has been noticed in the 
water during the year. The gate-houses and other structures 
are in good order.

Lake Cochituate. 

On May 1, 1882, the surface of the lake stood at eleva- 
tion 133.84, within 6 inches of high water. The lake having 
risen to 134.36 on the 22d, the stop-planks were removed from 
the dam, and water was wasted until the last of the month. 
No more water has been wasted during the year. As usual, 
during the summer, the surface of the water gradually 
lowered as the lake was drawn upon, until January 20, 
1883, when the lowest point of the year was reached, viz., 
elevation 125.89, a little less than five feet above the invert 
of the aqueduct. This was about one foot lower than the 
lowest point reached the preceding year. On the last day of 
March the lake was still nearly six feet below high-water 
mark. There were comparatively no spring rains, and a sea- 
son of unusual drought set in. It became apparent that the lake 
would not fill from its own water-shed. The surplus water 
of the Sudbury river was therefore used for filling the lake, 
and during the month of April nearly one billion of gallons 
have been run into Course brook from the Sudbury conduit. 
The surface now stands at elevation 133.71. The quality of 
the water has been excellent during the entire year. There 
having been no recurrence of the cucumber taste, the water 
has been run continually, with the exception of a few days 
for repairs. No new work has been done at the lake during 
the year. It will be necessary soon to take steps toAvards 
the relocation of the keeper's house. I should recommend an 
entire removal of the buildings from their present site to a 
point nearer the gate-house ; and, also, that the city farm at 
the lake, together with some other land for which the city is 
now taxed by the town, and which are of no present or pro- 
spective benefit, be sold, reserving the usual margin around 
the borders for protection of the Avater. The Dug and Pegan 
meadows have been kept flowed during the year. No water 
has been drawn from Dudley pond. 



The Sddbury-river Aqueduct. 

This structure has been in service during the entire year. 
It has brought to the city an average of 18,900,000 gallons 
daily. In June, 1882, the interior was swept from Farm pond 
to Bacon's Waste-weir. Sept. 13 and 14, from Farm pond to 
Station 49, and from Bacon's Waste-weir to Station 343. Nov. 
8, 9, and 10, from Clarke's Waste-weir to Terminal Chamber. 
Dec. 12 and 13 from Farm pond to Charles-river bridge, and 



132 City Docujment No. 142. 

at this time the accumulations of lime in the upper ends of the 
aqueduct were scraped off as thoroughly as possible. The 
embankment in Sherburn swamp, at Durant's, and at 
Waban bridsre have received exterior loamiuo: and sodding 
and all the embankments along the line have been maintained, 
and are now in good order. A little over two miles of fenc- 
ing have been put up during the year, at a cost of 10^ cts. per 
runnino; foot. In December a scries of levels was run throuofh 
the highest embankments on the line, viz., the Waban em- 
bankment, the Almshouse embankment, and Kurd's embank- 
ment, to determine what the settlement had been since 1^77. 
The only settlement worth noticing was in the centre of 
Kurd's bank, where the maximum amount was at one point ^ 
of an inch. The embankment at this point is 50 feet in 
height. The gate-houses, culverts, and waste-weirs are in 
excellent order. 

The Cochituate Aqueduct. 

Five and one-half feet of water were run in this structure from 
May 1 to June 10, when the head was raised to 7 feet. This 
amount was run until July 6, when the amount was reduced to 
five feet. On August 12 the flow was raised a foot and increased 
another foot on August 31, and still another foot on September 
6, or 8 inches above the arch. On September 11 the head 
was slightly reduced, owing to the falling of the surface of 
the lake, and to October 4 the level followed the falling of 
the lake. From October 4 to December 1,5^ feet of water 
were run, and from December 1 to February 25 varying 
levels were run, according to the height of the lake. On the 
latter day the surface of the water, having risen sufficiently, 
the old flow of 5|- feet was resumed, and continued to the 
present date. The water has been shut ofi" but once during 
the year, viz., from January 22 to January 26, for the pur- 
pose of cleaning the interior. This was done in a thorough 
manner, from the gate-house at the lake to the Brookline 
reservoir. The sponge had not grown to any extent since 
the last cleaning, but it was found in small patches growing in the 
first mile of the aqueduct. At the same time a series of 
measurements of heights and widths was made throughout 
the whole length, by several engineering parties, for 
purposes of comparison with previous years. No change in 
the form of the aqueduct since last year has been detected. 
The only work done on the exterior has been the pointing of 
the siphon chambers, the road arch at Newton Lower Falls, 
and the Charles-river bridge. The latter had not been done 
for a great many years, and the work was executed in a 



Eeport or THE Water Board. 133 

complete manner by cutting out all joints and running in 
cement as deep as tools would reach. No opportunity for 
repairs on the interior has presented itself during the year. 

Chestnut-Hill Eeservoir. 

The disease among the horn pouts, referred to in my report 
of 1880, still continues, and they should be seined out. The 
water has not been shut off during the whole year. The 
usual meteorological and other observations have been taken 
during the year. The grounds and drives and walks are iu 
excellent order, as are also the gate-houses and other appliances 
connected with the works. A table of rainfall at this 
point is appended. 

• 

Brookline Eeservoir. 

The grounds and structure connected with this reservoir 
are in good order. No new work has been done at this 
point during the year. 

Very respectfully, 

DESMOND FITZGEEALD, 

Superintendent.

EEPOET OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF THE 
EASTERN DIVISION. 



Boston, May 1, 1883. 

Leonard R. Cutter, Esq., Chairman Boston Water 
Board : — 

Sir, — My report for the year ending with April 30th is 
herewith respectfully submitted : — 

I consider the works, as a whole, to be in very good condi- 
tion. 

The work of relaying pipes of larger sizes and of laying 
new ones in South Boston, and East Boston, ordered last 
winter by the Board, was begun as early as the season would 
admit, and will be finished in about three weeks. That in 
the city proper will be commenced as soon as the pipes by 
the new contract are delivered. 

The 40-inch main pipes over the high-water flood-gates, on 
Beacon street, were lowered to correspond with the regular 
grade of that line. I think those now over what was once 
the low-water gates should also be changed. A new 40-inch 
gate was established, on Brookline avenue, opposite Maple 
avenue, or about midway between the gates at the ends of 
Brookline avenue. 

The stand-pipe on the Fort lot, Roxbury Highlands, was 
repainted in July. The Worthington pumping-engine, at the 
Elm wood-street station, has been overhauled and repairs 
completed, so far as to allow it to be used, and is in use. 
The eno:ines at the Brio^hton and East Boston stations are in 
good condition. 

Only two leaks of note have occurred in the distributing 
mains during the year. One on the 20-inch line under War- 
ren bridge, which supplies East Boston (joint blowed out), 
and one in the high-service manhole bend (bursted) of the 
16-inch syphon at the channel, Dover-street bridge. They 
were promptly repaired, and are in as good condition as be- 
fore. The 20-inch line under Warren bridge has given a 
great deal of trouble. Being of the original make, and 
having no lead score in the sockets, the lead is being contin- 
ually loosened by the contraction and expansion of the 



Eeport of the Watee Boaed. 



U5 



pipes and the shutting off of the line, which is done at every 
second alarm of fire from East Boston, carrying with it the 
liability of a leak. But I understand a new bridge is soon 
to be built, and new pipes of modern make are to be sub- 
stituted. 

The number and localities of the stand-pipes for street 
watering-carts, drinking-fountains, and watering-troughs, can 
be found on the Water Registrar's report. 

Main-Pipe. 

The whole number of feet of main pipe of the different 
sizes now in service is 1,938,640, equal to 367.16 miles. A 
larger amount has been laid since the works were com- 
menced, but have been taken up or abandoned.

EEPOET OF THE SUPEEINTENDEiNT OE 
THE MYSTIC WATER WOEKS. 



Charlestown District, Boston, May 1, 1883. 

Leonard R. Cutter, Esq., Chairman Boston Water 
Board : — 

Sir, — The annual report of this department, for the year 
endhig April 30, is herewith submitted : — 

Mystic Lake. 

The level of the water in the lake has varied during the 
past year from extreme high- water mark to a point 4.66 
below. 

March 15, 1882, the water was 5.76 feet above tide- marsh 
level, or 1.16 feet below high-water mark. From this date 
it varied, water being allowed to .waste over the dam at 
different times. April 21 it reached the highest point, viz., 
6.92 feet above tide-marsh level. On September 11 the 
lake surface had fallen 2.4 feet, the lowest point reached 
during the year. 

A great improvement in the quality of the water hns been 
apparent the past two years. This I attribute, in a great 
degree, to the removal of vegetable matter, together with 
other deposits, which are constantly accumulating around the 
borders and in the shallow places of the lake. These ac- 
cumulations are, in my opinion, one of the chief, if not the 
principal source of all the disagreeable flavors heretofore 
complained of, and can be, to a great degree, permanently 
remedied by filling with gravel these shallow localities that 
are now so detrimental to the purity of the water. This 
matter I earnestly recommend for consideration. 

Mystic- Valley Sewer. 

Operations on the sewer at Mystic station, Winchester, 
were placed in charge of this department July 15, since which 
time the same treatment has been continued. The branch 
leading from Moseley's tannery (owing to the increase of 



162 City Document No. 142. 

business) has become quite inadequate for the purpose, 
makiftg it troublesome and expensive to operate, and should 
be enlarged. This can be done at a nominal expense by 
utilizing the 16-inch cement distribution-pipe now being 
removed from Main street. With this exception, this branch 
of the works may be considered in good working order. 

Conduit. 

The conduit was drawn off three different times durins; the 
months of December and January last, and thoroughly 
cleaned. Heavy growths of vegetable matter found growing 
on the walls, together with large quantities of muscles and 
sediment, were removed ; spongilla was also found growing on 
the walls, but in such minute particles that it was impossible 
to procure a good sample. Apparently this growth is con- 
fined to the conduit alone, as no sign of it has as yet been 
found either in lake or reservoir. Its general appearance is 
of recent growth, and confined to the upper section of conduit, 
and near the entrance. 

The defect heretofore known to exist in this branch of the 
works was particularly examined, and found to be in such 
condition as to demand immediate attention. In connection 
with this matter I respectfully refer to the report and rec- 
ommendations of the City Engin-eer. 

Engine-House Department. 

The buildings in connection with this department are now 
undergoing slight repairs, including painting, etc., and when 
completed will all be in good order. 

The roads and grounds included in this department require 
an increase of expenditure over the ordinary running expense, 
on account of some 600 feet of stone wall to bfi.laid on line 
of road leading from the reservoir to engintj-liouse ; also, 
600 feet to be relaid, forming the north boundary of reservoir 
grounds, and the repairs or renewal of and painting the 
fence. These improvements call for immediate attention. 
Trees, of different kinds, are being added to the grounds, 
both at the lake and in the vicinity of the engine-house and 
reservoir, and it is contemplated to continue these from time 
to time as circumstances will permit. 

Pumping-Service . 

April, 1882, the three engines were thoroughly repaired, 
and all iron-work in connection with the water-cylinders 
well painted and varnished with two good coats each, at a 



Eepoet of the Watee Board. 163 

cost of $125, since which time little or no expense in re- 
pairs has been made, and they may be considered in good 
order at this time. 

The boilers have required more or less repairs from time 
to time, especially Nos. 1, 2, 3, and 4, these having been in 
almost constant use since the commencement of the works. 
In consideration of their long service, it was thought advis- 
able to hold a strict and careful survey, to include all the 
boilers; the result of which was that the older ones, viz., 
Nos. 1, 2, 3, and 4, were found to be very much worn, so 
much so that careful usage and management will be required 
for the limited time they may be of service. A detailed 
report of their condition by the inspector is now on file. 

Distribution. 

The distribution-pipes have been extended in this district 
1,441 feet, of which 162 feet were 4 inch and 1,279 feet of 
6 inch ; 1,147 feet were on private account. There have also 
been laid in extension outside of this district 2,436 feet, all 
on private account, and 31 feet for the town of Everett, 
making a total extension by this department of 3,908 feet. 
3,105 feet of pipe have been relaid ; of this 2,553 feet were 
cement pipe rephiced with cast-iron ; 408 feet were enlarged 
from the original size, and 552 feet were cast-iron, renewed at 
Mystic wharf for the Lowell Railroad Co. 

There have been 36 breaks on the distribution-pipes in this 
district and 12 breaks in Everett. Of these 1 Avas on 16-inch 
pipe, 1 on 12-inch, 1 on 10-inch, 2 on 8-inch pipe, and the 
remainder on 6, 4, and 2-inch pipe. 

30 leaks have also occurred : 1 on 24-inch supply, 2 on 16- 
inch, and 1 on 12-inch; the remainder on 6, 4, and 2 inch 
pipe. 

At the eno'ine-house oTounds one leak on the force main. 

In Chelsea, 613 feet of 4-inch cement-pipe have been re- 
placed with cast-iron of the same size. 

In Somerville the extension has been 2,444 feet, in Chel- 
sea 192 feet, making a total extension in connection with the 
works of 6,544 feet. 

Hydrants and Gates. 

7 additional hydrants have been placed by this depart- 
ment, viz. : 1 Lowry on Freedom court, 1 Lowry on Gray 
street, 1 Lowry off Ruth avenue, 2 post hydrants on Main 
street, 1 post on Water street, and 1 post on Hoosac 
Tunnel dock, making an increase of 3 Lowry and 4 post hy- 
drants in this department. 



164 City Document No. 142. . 

There have also been placed on private account, 2 post hy- 
drants at Cochrane & Co.'s works, Everett, and 2 post hy- 
drants at Fitchbiirg Railroad grounds, in Somerville. 

In the city of Somerville 11 additional post hydrants have 
been placed. There have been placed in this department 9 
additional gates : in Everett 1, in Somerville 14 ; making an 
increase of 24 in connection with the whole works. 

Service-Pipes. 

35 new service-pipes, 657 feet, have been laid in this 
district ; 72 have been repaired, altered, or renewed. Of 
these 63 were leaks, 6 were enlarged, 3 tin-lined renewed. 
14 service-pipes were frozen, and 34 stoppages occurred ; in 
19 by fish, 10 by rust, and 5 by moss. 

329 decayed wooden boxes were replaced with 215 cast- 
iron and 114 wood. 

In Somerville 161 new service-pipes, 6,092 feet, have 
been laid; in Chelsea, 70 additional, 1,604 feet; and in 
Everett, 53 additional, 1,034 feet; making an increase of 
9,387 feet of service-pipe laid. The total number of 
service-pipes in connection with the works is 13,992; 
the total length, 393,864 feet. 

The accompanying tables give the number of feet of pipe 
laid and relaid, and the localities of all changes made during 
the year, together with the amounts of pipe connected with 
the works ; also the amount of stock on hand, etc.
