1850.] CITY DOCUMENT— No. 45. 



To the Honorable the Board of Mayor and Aldermen and 
the Common Council. 

Gentlemen : 

In conformity with the 14th section of the ordinance 
of Dec. 31, 1849, establishing the Cochituate Water 
Board ; the following report is made. 

The receipts of the Water Department from January 

4, 1850, to the 4th instant have been for Water 

Rates, $97,943 14 

All other sources, - - - -- 7,171 20 

Total number of Water Takers from January 4th, to 
December 5th, 1 3,463, not including those who are cut 
off. 

The total number of water takers whose supply was 
cut off for non-payment of rates is 496, of these 335 af- 
terwards paid and had the water let on again ; leaving 
161 still cut off. 

For a detailed account of the above receipts for water 
and the different classes of water takers, see Appendix 
A, For receipts from other sources, see Appendix B. 

The expenditures of the department during the same 
period, have been for the extension of the works to East 
Boston,.- $283,715 82 

Expended last year on the same account, 
by the Water Commissioners, - - 29,170 40 

Probable amount required for complet- 
ing the same, say ----- 30,000 00 

$342,886 22 



4 WATER. [Dec. 

This amount includes not only the cost of taking the 
20 inch main to East Boston, but also that of the Reser- 
voir, lands and distribution. For further details see 
Appendix C. 

The expenditures for all other purposes, including 
the settlement of land claims and damages, salaries, 
wages, repairs of aqueduct and pipes, completing the 
Beacon Hill Reservoir and maintaining the receiving 
and compensating reservoirs in the country, &c, &c, 
have been, - $47,095 28 

For further details, see Appendix D. 

The total amount expended by the City to Dec. 4th, 
on account of the Water Works, not including interest 
paid by the Treasurer, is - - - $4,321,794 26 
See Appendix E. 

The total estimated value of water used for City pur- 
poses, and bringing in no revenue, is $2,405 20. This 
does not include anything for fire hydrants and foun- 
tains, which are of undoubted importance to the City ; 
but the value of which there is no rule for estimating:. 

For a detailed account of City Buildings, &c, suppli- 
ed with water, see statement F in the Appendix. 

The total length of distribution pipes laid since Jan- 
uary 4th, is 

In Boston proper, - - - 260 feet 

" South Boston, 1 mile 1702 " 

" East Boston, including length 
of main from the Haymarket 
Square, - - - - 12 miles 1146 " 



Amount, 13 miles 3108 feet. 

The total length laid from the commencement of the 
works to the present time, in all parts of the City and 



1850.] CITY DOCUMENT— No. 45. 5 

in Brookline, Roxbury, Charlestown and Chelsea is 
96 miles 4301 feet. This does not include the service 
pipes, of which there are 15,143 in number, an increase 
of 1812 since last year. 

The number of fire hydrants now established, is 

In the City proper, - '"- - - - 791

Total, - - - 1005 

The extension of the works to East Boston has pro- 
gressed very nearly to completion ; and it is believed 
the Cochituate water will be introduced into the Reser- 
voir on Eagle Hill by or before the close of the current 
year. 

The main pipe for the supply of East Boston is 20 inches 
in diameter, and commences at the Haymarket Square. 
It crosses Charles River on the lower side of the War- 
ren Bridge partly on independent pile work, passing 
the draw by means of an inverted Syphon which leaves 
sufficient space for the largest class of vessels that can 
pass this bridge. Thence it passes thi ough the Square 
and Chelsea street in Charlestown, and thence across 
Mystic River on independent pile work by the upper 
side of Chelsea Bridge. In passing this stream, two 
inverted Syphons were placed opposite the draws in 
Chelsea Bridge, one near the Charlestown shore, and 
the other near the Chelsea shore. The latter leaves a 
clear space of 50 feet, which is considerably more than 



6 WATER [Dec. 

the width of the draw opposite. The enlargement was 
made on account of the possibility of a larger class of 
vessels being built at Medford than has been construct- 
ed there heretofore. The main then passes along the 
Salem Turnpike and though Williams and Marginal 
Streets in Chelsea, and about 400 feet beyond the 
grounds of the U. S. Marine Hospital it turns and 
crosses Chelsea Creek to the Reservoir on Eagle Hill. 
The channel of this creek is passed by a flexible pipe, 
instead of a pile bridge and Syphon near the East Bos- 
ton Free Bridge, as was originally contemplated. 

This change was made with the concurrence of the 
Water Committee, and it is believed will result in a 
saving of $30,000 in the first cost of the work, besides 
shortening the length of the main 1 1-5 miles, and con- 
sequently making a material increase in its capacity to 
discharge water into the East Boston Reservoir. This 
reservoir is 30 feet deep, and will hold, when rilled to a 
level 3 feet below its top, 5,591,816 wine gallons. 

To the main pipe there has been attached 11 fire hy- 
drants in Charlestown and 8 in Chelsea. These are to 
be used only on the occurrence of fires, and not for any 
other purposes. 

During the year two general examinations of the in- 
terior of the aqueduct have been made. On the upper 
portion of the line a great many small leaks into the 
aqueduct exist. Those have been there, with but little 
exception, from the commencement, and it was impossi- 
ble to keep them out at first, without very great expense, 
and serious delay in the completion of the work. As 
similar springs were known to exist in some portions of 
the Croton Aqueduct, without injuring the stability of 
that structure, it was believed that they would be 
equally harmless here ; and the result of our experience 



1850.] city document—No. 45. 7 

thus far, confirms this belief. Occasionally a spring is 
known to bring in sand or other material from the out- 
side of the conduit. Whenever this occurs, it is deem- 
ed important to stop the spring ; but in no case so far, 
has there been any difficulty ; and those places which 
at first caused some anxiety on this account, have ceased 
to do so. 

Several portions of the aqueduct were built on pud- 
dled embankments. Though a very economical mode 
of construction, it was looked upon as somewhat of an 
experiment. But the result shows that where these 
embankments were made of sand and gravel the aque- 
duct has already come to a firm bearing, and has given 
very little trouble with regard to repairs. Where the 
aqueduct was built upon puddled clay the result has 
not been so satisfactory ; but even with these it has not 
been necessary to make any repairs during the year, 
except in one place ; and then the amount expended 
was very small. 

The external structures along the line of the works 
are all in good order. The excessive rains of the past 
season have washed the embankments very little. Owing 
to the lateness of the season at which the Beacon Hill 
reservoir was finished last year, it was not advisable to 
point the joints of the masonry then. This caused^ 
some leakage, which, though trifling in amount, gave 
an unsightly appearance to portions of the structure. 
During the past season, the pointing or cementing, of 
the joints has been thoroughly done ; and the leakage 
has almost entirely disappeared. 

Of about thirty claims for land and damages to land, 
&c, remaining unsettled when the late Water Commis- 
sioners left the work, we regret to say that only about 
one half have been adjusted since ; and most of those 



8 WATER. [ Dec - 

still unsettled are very difficult cases. Nothing but 
tedious legal processes can bring them to an end, un- 
less the City will submit to what we think very ex- 
orbitant demands. A few of these claims are in a fair 
way to be settled by the close of the current year; but 
we fear that about ten will have to be left for our suc- 
cessors in office to adjust. 

The amount of water wasted from Lake Cochituate, 
and not allowed to enter the aqueduct at all, since 
January 4th, cannot be estimated very accurately; but 
enough is known to enable us to state that it is a little 
over an average of 15,000,000 wine gallons for every 
day. No estimate has yet been made of the entire 
quantity consumed in the City; but occasional trials 
show that the daily draught from the Brookline reser- 
voir varies from 4,000,000 to 6,000,000 gallons. This 
would show that the Lake might have supplied during 
the past season an average of 20,000,000 gallons, could 
it all have been saved. This, however, was not the 
case, the capacity of the Lake for retaining the large 
quantities which occasionally fell in a few days, being 
insufficient. 

Notwithstanding the experience of this and of last 

year satisfactorily shows the safety of the estimate of 

the Commissioners of 1845, that the Lake may be relied 

upon to furnish 10,000,000 gallons a day, we think 

that its capacity for supplying the City in dry seasons 

should not be estimated beyond this amount. The 

average daily consumption by the City during the next 

year when the Cochituate water will be introduced into 

East Boston, will probably be near 6,000,000 gallons, — 

or 60 per cent, of the estimated reliable capacity of the 

Lake. This naturally suggests that at no very distant 

day 10,000,000 gallons will be required. In the mean- 



1850.] CITY DOCUMENT— No. 45. 9 

time it should be remembered that much over 6,000,000 
gallons a day cannot be drawn from the Brookline Re- 
servoir, through the pipes already laid, without injuri- 
ously affecting the service in the elevated portions of 
the City. This will make it necessary to enforce rigidly 
the regulations of the 27th section of the new water 
ordinance, in order to prevent any unnecessary waste. 
As one means of doing this, the introduction of Water 
Meters has been commenced. But these are so ex- 
pensive, that no practical benefit can be derived from 
them except in cases where large quantities of water 
are consumed. The great amount of waste will be 
found to arise from carelessness in private houses, 
stores and offices. 

The compensating reservoirs were filled to overflow- 
ing in the spring, and have undoubtedly supplied as 
much water as it was necessary for the City to furnish 
to the Mills at Billerica and below. No complaint 
whatever on this account has come to the knowledge of 
the Board. 

In view of the Water Tariff, and the Water Ordi- 
nance, which are to take" effect from the first proximo, 
we do not deem it advisable to include in this report 
any further " opinions and recommendations." 
"Which is respectfully submitted.
