REPORT OF THE METROPOLITAN DISTRICT 
WATER SUPPLY COMMISSION 

To the Honorable the Senate and House of Representatives of the Common- 
wealth of Massachusetts in General Court assembled. 

The Metropolitan District Water Supply Commission, established under the 
provisions of Chapter 375 of the Acts of 1926, respectfully presents its 

TWENTY-FIRST ANNUAL REPORT 
I. Organization and Administration 

William T. Morrissey continued as Chairman of the Commission. Edward 
J. Kelley and Charles H. Brown continued as Associate Commissioners, Mr. 
Kelley throughout the fiscal year and Mr. Brown until his death, February 4, 
1946. Mr. Brown was succeeded by Louis B. Connors, February 20, 1946. 
R. Nelson Molt continued as Secretary. Karl R. Kennison continued as Chief 
Engineer, with other engineering personnel as described in his report, attached 
hereto. 

The offices of the. Commission were continued at 20 Somerset Street, Boston, 
together with the Headquarters Office of the Engineering Department. Field 
offices were continued at the Administration Building near Winsor Dam in 
Belchertown and at, other locations indicated in the accompanying report of 
the Chief Engineer. 

The Commission, as organized by Chapters 375 and 321, has continued the 
work provided for under those acts and has carried on other duties as a 
member of various Special Legislative Committees. The Engineers, under the 
direction of Chief Engineer Kennison and upon instructions of the Commission, 
have secured and provided much data and furnished many plans and specifica- 
tions for use of these special committees. 

Data have been secured for the purpose of clarifying the provisions of law 
affecting the conditions of those entering the Metropolitan Water District under 
the flat rate fixed at $40.00 per mil. gals. 

Investigations and procurement of data were undertaken for use of the Special 
Legislative Committee studying the water need of the cities and towns in the 
Ware, Swift, Quaboag, Chicopee, Connecticut and Millers River Valleys, and 
the possible utilization of Quabbin Reservoir or the supply of the City of 
Springfield as a source of supply. 

Further studies were made of the method of improvement of the conditions 
of the Neponset Valley for use of a Special Legislative Committee which 
reported to the General Court in 1946. 

The Commission and the engineers also have been engaged in carrying out 
the provisions of Chapter 705 of the Acts of 1945 for the improvement of the 
Metropolitan sewerage systems and a report thereon is being filed. 

II. Swift River Supply 

During 1946 the draft upon Quabbin Reservoir to Wachusett was 10,475,000,- 
000 gallons. The reservoir reached elevation 529.5 during June and the Com- 
mission on June 22 released from the reservoir the first discharge of water 
through the spillway to the Swift River below Winsor Dam. 



2 P.D. 147 

The Swift River diversion tunnel was closed August 7, 1939 and storage first 
started in the main reservoir during the period until a total storage of 
411,600,000,000 gallons was reached. There have been the following yearly 
releases to the Metropolitan water district from the reservoir: 

1941 . . . 20,461,500,000 

1943 . . . 17,020,400,000 

1945 . . . 22,007,800,000 

1946 . . . 10,745,000,000 



70,234,700,000 



From the Ware River during this seven-year period, there were the follow- 
ing yearly diversions to the Metropolitan water district: 



1939 


541,600,000 


1940 


1,857,700,000 


1941 


2,000,000 


1942 


554,700,000 


1944 


1,359,000,000 


1946 


169,700,000 




4,484,700,000 



Since the completion of the Quabbin Aqueduct and the Swift River Diversion 
Tunnel there were two periods of excessively high water, the fall hurricanes 
of 1938 and 1944. The work of the Commission has aided materially in reducing 
flood damages on the Ware, Swift ajid Chicopee rivers and with a plan of 
operation co-ordinating the release from Wachusett Reservoir which has been 
established, it will provide a potent means of further reducing the effect of 
flood waters. 

During the year the Commission requested, and secured, permission of the 
Department of Public Health to divert the flow of the Ware River in excess 
of 85 m.g.d. from the period between June 10 and November 15. However, no 
diversion was made. 

Reforestation of the watershed area was carried on as was the clearing before 
the rising waters of the reservoir using the boats "Enfield" and "Greenwich" 
to transport workmen. Work in the suppression of gypsy moth and white pine 
blister rust was undertaken in cooperation with the U. S. Department of 
Agriculture. 

The Commission reports no extensive fires on the watershed area during the 
year. The fire lanes and access roads were maintained and forest fire-fighting 
equipment kept in readiness during the periods of fire hazards. 

The collection of water samples from the reservoir, as well as entering 
streams and the Ware River, was continued. Analyses of these samples were 
made at the laboratory at the Administration Building, Belchertown and stream 
gauging stations were continued in cooperation with the U. S. Geological Survey 
on the Ware, Swift, Chicopee and Connecticut rivers. 

Topographical and real estate surveys were being completed and data col- 
lected relative to the water supply of the cities and towns in the Ware, Chicopee, 
Connecticut and Millers River valleys for use of the Special Legislative Com- 
mittee as well as topographical surveys for the same. 

The Metropolitan police has continued its headquarters in the Administration 
Building and the Commission has maintained the building as well as Shaft 12 
and the Outlet Building. Full use by the public of the roads to and over the 
dam and dike and parking space on Quabbin Hill has been permitted and the 
Observation Tower and convenience stations available for use. 

The Commission awarded to the lowest bidder, after publicly advertising for 
bids, a contract for the installation of the hydro-electric equipment at Winsor 
Dam Outlet Works. 



P.D. 147 3 

The Commission acquired 12 acres of land in New Salem during the year 
making possible better access for fire lanes and an access road to the Prescott 
Peninsula. 

Quabbin Park Cemetery was maintained and cared for and 31 interments 
were made therein during the year. As usual, Memorial Day services were 
held by the veterans on that day. 

III. Ware River Supply 

The Commission continued the maintenance of the Intake Building and Shaft 
8 at Coldbrook and the Outlet Building and Shaft 1 at Oakdale. The Commis- 
sion granted further locations to the U. S. Army Engineers for making borings 
for the location of Barre Falls Flood Control Dam. The Commission instructed 
the Chief Engineer to fully investigate the design of the proposed dam as it 
was prepared by the Army engineers and to report to the Commission the 
progress that is being made on the same. The Commission received written 
assurance that the storage would be released at such times and in such manner 
as would not affect the rights of the Commonwealth nor the amount of water 
that could be by law diverted by the Commission. 

Maintenance of the Outlet Building at Shaft 1 at Oakdale and the Intake 
Building and Shaft 8 at Coldbrook and the grounds was continued and Quabbin 
Aqueduct kept ready for operation. 

Minor repairs to the disc-valve at Shaft 8 were completed and an inspection 
of the aqueduct from Shaft 12 at Quabbin Reservoir to Shaft 4 at Rutland was 
made by the engineers. 

Studies were continued of the plans for a connection to the Holden-Rutland 
sewer to dispose of the sewage from the towns of West Boylston and Boylston, 
funds for the construction of such a connection having been provided for by 
the Legislature of 1946 by Chapter 515 of the Acts of that year. 

Operation of the Rutland-Holden Trunk Sewer was continued and with the 
acceptance formally in September by the town of Rutland the full functioning 
of that entire system was possible. 

The Commission authorized the preparation of plans and specifications for a 
water wheel and appurtenances to develop electrical energy at the Outlet 
Building, Oakdale. 

IV. Hultman Aqueduct 

The Commission instructed the Chief Engineer to secure data relative to the 
discontinuance of the Old Arched Viaduct which carried the Wachusett Aque 
duct across the Assabet River. In view of the fact that this structure provided 
the sole means of getting the supply from Wachusett and Quabbin reservoirs 
to the Metropolitan water district and had presented a vulnerable target all 
during the war period for sabotage, it was clearly apparent that it should be 
eliminated. Upon the receipt of the report of the Chief Engineer and upon his 
recommendation the Commission approved the plan and specifications and 
publicly advertised a contract for the construction of an inverted siphon under 
the river thus removing the hazard to the supply to Boston. A contract was 
awarded for the construction of the same to the second lowest bidder, the low 
bidder not having complied with the specifications in not presenting adequate 
plans to safeguard by-passing of the aqueduct flow. 

Maintenance of the aqueduct and building at Marlborough and Norumbega 
Reservoir and the right-of-way was continued. Discharge of water directly 
from Wachusett Reservoir through the aqueduct and by-pass to Weston Aque- 
duct mains was continued. 

The Legislature appropriated the sum of ten million dollars for the con- 
struction of the City Tunnel from Charles River to the Chestnut Hill Pumping 
Station and for the construction of a distribution reservoir and other works. 
The Commission had already approved the plans and specifications for the con- 
struction of the City Tunnel, so called, and immediately approved the contract 
form and publicly advertised for bids to be opened October 30. 



4 P.D. 147 

Work under a contract for sub-surface investigation for borings in the 
counties of Middlesex, Norfolk and Suffolk was completed and additional in- 
formation obtained at City Tunnel shaft sites, the site of the Blue Hills 
Reservoir and Waban Hill Reservoir. 

The Commission, in view of its recommendation to the General Court in its 
last annual report advising of the necessity of having a secure delivery of a 
safe and adequate supply of water under pressure due to the increasing chance 
of mechanical failure of the old pumps at Chestnut Hill Pumping Station and 
the immediate increased demand by other communities for water, is prepared 
to go forward with the work rapidly. 

Topographical surveys have been made in the Blue Hills Reservoir area and 
along the line of the proposed connecting pipe line and of other new connec- 
tions to existing distribution reservoirs. 

V. Litigation 

The Ludlow Associates have filed Exceptions in its petition against the Com- 
mission for damages caused by the diversion of the Swift River and the office 
of the Attorney General represents the Commission. The arguments have not 
been heard by the Honorable Court. 

The Commission prepared and furnished such data and exhibits as were 
requested by the Attorney General for use in the preparation of the Common- 
wealth's Brief. 

VI. Fiscal 

Under the provisions of Chapter 541 of the Acts of 1941 the Commission 
submitted to the Budget Commission estimated expenditures for the allotment 
periods of the fiscal year. 

VII. Other Reports 

The Commissioners, as members of the Special Legislative Committee under 
Chapter 59 of the Resolves of 1945 for the investigation of the Neponset Valley, 
joined in the report of that committee and also under Chapter 83 of the Resolves 
of 1945 joined in a report filed by that committee. The members also join in 
the report of the enlarged water commission engaged in carrying out the 
provisions of Chapter 705 of the Acts of 1945 filed with the Grea.t and General 
Court. 

The Commission appends hereto a statement of the expenditures and disburse- 
ments for the fiscal year, and from the date of its appointment. 
Respectfully submitted, 

WM. T. MORRISSEY, Chairman 

JOHN R. SHAUGHNESSY, Associate Commissioner 

LOUIS B. CONNORS, Associate Commissioner

Design 

Studies and designs were continued of structures proposed to be constructed 
but not yet bid, as follows : 

Power Development at Quabbin Aqueduct. Studies were continued of the 
development of power in the new station at the outlet works of Quabbin Aque- 
duct in the Town of Oakdale. 

Wachusett Watershed Protection. Studies were continued in cooperation with 
the Quabbin Reservoir and Aqueduct Division of a system for diverting from the 
watershed of Wachusett Reservoir the sewage of Boylston and West Boylston. 

Hultman Aqueduct — City Tunnel. Plans and specifications for the extension 
of the Hultman Aqueduct by the City Tunnel from Shaft 5 at the Charles River 
to Chestnut Hill were practically completed, and the contract for sinking two 
construction shafts was advertised for the opening of bids on October 30, 1946. 
Miscellaneous studies were continued of plans for the proposed future extension 
of the City Tunnel. 

Distributing Reservoirs. Studies and designs were continued for the modi- 
fication of, and new connections to, existing distributing reservoirs, which must 
follow the completion of the City Tunnel ; and also for an additional distribut- 
ing reservoir in the Blue Hills Reservation. 

Barre Falls Flood Control Project. Studies were continued of the effect of 
the flood control project which the Federal Government is planning to construct 
at Barre Falls in the Ware River watershed. The Chief Engineer of the 
Commission continued as a member of an advisory board to assist the State 
Planning Board in its studies and recommendations to His Excellency the 
Governor on this and other similar Massachusetts projects. Agreement was 
reached with representatives of the United States Engineer office in Providence, 
Rhode Island, as to the general features which will govern the design of the 
Barre Falls Flood Control Project. 

Nep onset Valley Investigation. Assistance was rendered to the joint board 
for studying methods to improve the conditions of the Neponset Valley in the 
preparation of its report filed with the legislature of 1946. 

Enlargement of Metropolitan Water District. Further studies were made 
and data assembled for assistance of legislative committees in the preparation of 
amendments clarifying recently enacted provisions affecting the conditions of 
entrance into the Metropolitan Water District, reducing the annual assessment 
commencing in 1946 to a flat rate of $40 per million gallons and encouraging 
new cities and towns to join. 

Chicopee Valley Water Supply. Studies were made and considerable data 
assembled for, and assistance rendered to, the Special Commission to investi- 
gate the water supply needs of municipalities in the valley of the Connecticut 
River and its tributaries. The studies included the possibility of supplying these 
communities with water from Quabbin Reservoir. 



P.D. 147 



Sewerage Projects 



Studies were continued on the five sewerage projects authorized in Chapter 
705 of the Acts of 1945, for the improvement of the Metropolitan Sewerage 
Systems, actual construction being confined to the project for the Nut Island 
Sewage Treatment Plant. Work was commenced on the preparation of plans 
for the Alewife Brook Storm Relief Sewer Project. 

Project 1 — Nut Island Treatment Works. Sufficient progress was made on 
the designs for the proposed sewage treatment plant at Nut Island so that plans 
and specifications were practically completed for the construction of the aeration 
and sedimentation tanks, influent and effluent conduits, grit channels and main 
building substructure, which contract was advertised for the opening of bids 
July 31, 1946; and also for the construction of a digested sludge outfall and of 
diffusers over the outlets of two of the existing outfalls, which contract was 
advertised for the opening of bids October 16, 1946. The plan of the works is 
outlined in a flow diagram published in the previous report. 

South Metropolitan Sewage Records. The collection of twenty-four-hour 
composite samples at about 8-day intervals for analysis of the amount of sus- 
pended solids was continued. 

Project 3 — Alewife Brook Storm Overflow Conduit. Studies were com- 
menced of the conditions in the valley of Alewife Brook and the amount of 
sewage reaching the brook in storm overflows. 

Projects 4 and 5 — Charles River Basin Storm Overflow Conduits. Investiga- 
itons were continued of conditions along both sides of the Charles River. An 
investigation of the conditions at Galen Street overflow was made on February 
1, and recommendations to the town of Watertown resulted in the cleaning of 
that town's siphon pipe under the Charles River on May 9 and 10. Studies 
were made of the installation of floating booms at the outlet of Salt Creek 
and elsewhere to prevent the entrance into the Charles River Basin of oil and 
other objectionable floating material from the storm drains. 

Boston Marginal Conduit. The recording levels at the Fens Gatehouse was 
continued and studies made looking to an alleviation of the condition of clogging 
by debris from the larger Stony Brook Conduit of the City of Boston. 

Cambridge Marginal Conduit. The recording of levels at the Charles River 
Dam gatehouse was continued. 

Reservoir and Aqueduct Division 

The Quabbin Reservoir and Aqueduct Division continued in charge of all 
field work. This consisted of : Topographic and real estate surveys in the Quab- 
bin Reservoir area, in the Ware River and Wachusett watersheds, along the 
Hultman Aqueduct, at the site of the proposed distributing reservoir in the 
Blue Hills, and in connection with the various sewerage projects; reforestation; 
reservoir reclearing and work on fire lanes and access roads; the work of the 
water analysis laboratory; investigations in the Chicopee River Valley; the 
collection of data on flow in the South Metropolitan Trunk Sewer and the 
collection and analysis of sewage samples; and the maintenance and operation 
of Quabbin Park Cemetery, the Quabbin Reservoir release works at Winsor 
Dam, the Ware River Intake Works at Coldbrook, Quabbin Aqueduct and 
Hultman Aqueduct. 

Daily rainfall and temperature records and continuous records of the flow of 
the Ware River were kept at the Intake Building at Barre, and daily rainfall 
records at Pelham, at Nichewaug and Harvard Forest in Petersham, at South 
New Salem, at North New Salem, at West Rutland and at the Quabbin Aque- 
duct Intake in Hardwick. Daily rainfall and temperature records were kept at 
the Administration Building at Belchertown. Continuous records were kept 
of the flow of the Swift River at Winsor Dam. The accompanying table shows 
the monthly rainfall during the calendar year 1946 at stations on the Ware and 
Swift watersheds. Work was continued in the field offices on record plans 
in the Reservoir Area and along the Hultman Aqueduct. 



10 P.D. 147 

The Department of Public Health continued its cooperation in the analysis 
of samples of water. 

Quabbin Hill Building and the scenic highway between Winsor Dam and 
Quabbin Dike and the Quabbin Hill Observation Tower were reopened to the 
public July 15, 1945, following the expiration of the war emergency. The 
area was again closed for the winter season December 29 and reopened March 
16. 

The Belchertown office continued its records and management of the affairs 
of the former towns of Dana, Enfield, Greenwich and Prescott. Policing of the 
Quabbin Reservoir area was continued by the Metropolitan Police who were 
housed in the Administration Building. Miscellaneous surveys included the 
location of power lines for the new residences and for the United States Army 
target controls. The work of constructing two new residences for engineering 
personnel on Blue Meadow Road was continued with lumber and other ma- 
terials salvaged from various buildings in the reservoir area. To obtain a 
suitable water supply, a well was drilled by the Wachusett Artesian Well Com- 
pany, October 6 to October 9, 1945. The well was drilled to a depth of 170 
feet ana produced a yield of four gallons per minute. Residence No. 1 was 
completed and occupied November 6. An average of 5 men were employed 
April 23 to June 10, in order to complete the grading and loaming around the 
Quabbin Hill Observation Tower. Other miscellaneous items of construction 
were completed by force account, including the entrances to the east access 
road, the surfacing with asphalt emulsion of the access roads to the East and 
Middle Branch Regulating Dams and other access roads totaling 7.3 miles, and 
the construction of a temporary measuring weir in the lower spillway channel. 

Investigations were made of the water supply systems of towns in the 
Chicopee River Valley in connection with studies for the Special Legislative 
Commission investigating their needs. 

After the reservoir rilled to the level of the lower spillway crest, many tests 
were made to determine the rating of the flow through the stop-log bays in 
the depressed section of the Winsor Dam Spillway. 

Plans and studies were continued by the Coldbrook office of methods for 
disposing sewage in the towns of Boylston and West Boylston in the Wachusett 
watershed. Monthly inspections and reports were continued of conditions found 
at all shaft heads along the Quabbin Aqueduct. The chlorinating station on 
Mill Brook below the Central New England Sanatorium was maintained. 

The Newton Office completed a topographic survey of the proposed dis- 
tributing reservoir in the Blue Hills area, and a profile along the proposed 
connecting pipe line was made. Wash borings and soundings were made by 
force account to investigate subsoil conditions for the proposed Assabet Siphon 
on the Wachusett Aqueduct. Sewage level gages were continued on the South 
Metropolitan Sewer at the Fens Gatehouse of the Boston Marginal Conduit, 
and at the Charles River Dam chamber of the Cambridge Marginal Conduit. 

Inspections were made of conditions along the Stony Brook Conduit per- 
mitting the entrance of debris into the conduit. Surveys were made of the 
Galen Street siphon of the Town of Watertown to determine the extent of 
clogging resulting in abnormal overflows of sewage into the basin. Extensive 
surveys were made in the valley of Alewife Brook to determine the location 
of existing sewers and connections and other underground structures, and the 
extent and character of contributions from sewage and storm water from 
various sources. 

Reforestation. The general program of reforestation was continued with 
stock from the Commission's nurseries, as indicated in the following table which 
is a continuation of the information published in previous reports.

No planting was done in the Ware watershed. 10,000 red pine 6-year trans- 
plants together with a small number of miscellaneous trees and shrubs were 
taken to Norumbega Reservoir and used to replace trees that had been destroyed 
by fire. Also approximately 44,000 transplants were transferred to the Water 
Division of the Metropolitan District Commission or sold to individuals. The 
summary of stock in the nursery on June 30, 1946, in addition to about 280 
miscellaneous trees and shrubs, is as follows : 

Six-year seedlings ..... (6-0) 1,900,000

Total 7,380,250 

Practically all of these trees are now too large for economical use for watershed 
planting, and will be left to grow in their present locations and considered as 
permanent stands. 

The work on gypsy moth control by roadside spraying on the Prescott 
Peninsula with arsenate of lead solution was continued until July 13, 1945. 
Work was started on April 29 on white pine blister rust control in cooperation 
with the United States Department of Agriculture and continued throughout 
the year covering an area of approximately 14,000 acres. An average of 4 
men were so employed on force account for 10 weeks. 

Floating Equipment. — The use of the Commission's two largest boats, the 
"Enfield" and the "Greenwich", was continued for the transportation of workmen 
and their equipment to various sections of the reservoir for taking water samples 
and general utility work. The "Dana" remained in storage. The New England 
Power Company was permitted to house and use a boat to facilitate the mainte- 
nance of its 110,000-volt transmission line crossing the reservoir. 

Experimental Grazing. — The flock of sheep pastured on experimental grazing 
areas increased during the year from 50 to 66. The Commission's experiment 
with this flock during the last six years had definitely indicated no economy in 
its maintenance. Accordingly on June 24, the entire flock was disposed of by 
sale to the Gardner State Hospital. 320 pounds of wool was sheared during 
the year. 

Fire Protection. — Fire fighting equipment was maintained and ready for 
service at all times, one fire truck being stationed at Pelham Hill on the west 
side of the reservoir, one at Nichewaug near the reservoir intake to Quabbin 
Aqueduct, one near the Ware River Intake Works, and the remainder of the 
fire fighting equipment at the Administration Buildings. During the year the 
equipment and personnel responded to calls for assistance at three forest fires 
in the Quabbin area which burned over only 1 acre above the flow line and % 
acre below, and three forest fires in the Ware watershed which burned over a 
total area of 14 acres. The United States Army continued its fire boat and 
fire fighting equipment at the bombing range base and rendered effective aid. 
Work on fire access roads and reclearing fire stops was continued by force 
account. An average of 8 were so employed for 32 weeks. 

Quabbin Park Cemetery. — A small labor force averaging 5 men was em- 
ployed on cemetery work throughout the year. The vault was maintained 
ready for use, cemetery lots graded and seeded as required, the entire cemetery 
area properly maintained and driveways plowed and kept clear of snow through- 
out the winter months. Thirty-one interments were made during the year. 



12 P.D. 147 

Rutland-H olden Sewer 

The Rutland-Holden Sewer was in continuous operation throughout the year. 
The entire length of the line and the meter stations at the Rutland State Sana- 
torium, at the United States Veterans' Hospital in Rutland, at the Rutland- 
Holden boundary line and at the Holden- Worcester boundary line were in- 
spected regularly. 

The Rutland sewer system which was constructed under the Commission's 
agreement with the town in cooperation with the Federal Works Progress 
Administration was accepted by the town September 17, 1945. 

Laboratories 

Park Road Laboratory — Weston. — The Commission's loboratory for soil test- 
ing was continued with equipment previously moved from Belchertowri to 
Weston. In the same building the analyzing of sewage samples was continued. 
This included the periodic testing throughout the year of composite 24-hour 
samples from the South Metropolitan Sewer at Nut Island, also the periodic 
testing of samples from Alewife Brook and from the Stony Brook Conduit. 

Water Analysis Laboratory — Belchertown. — The taking and analyzing of 
samples from the Ware, Swift, Quaboag and Chicopee rivers was continued. 
The chemical and bacteriological analysis of the regularly scheduled samples 
from Quabbin Reservoir and tributary streams in the Swift and Ware water- 
sheds was continued. The work has been under the general supervision of 
Clarence H. Reed, Assistant Superintendent of the Sudbury Section of the 
Metropolitan District Commission. 

Operation of Winsor Dam Outlet Works 

The outlet works were maintained, and pending the completion of repairs to 
the control valves the required release of water was controlled over stop shutters 
in the intake building until the filling of the reservoir provided sufficient head 
over the main dam spillway to transfer the release to that point. Studies of 
the best method of repairing cavitation particularly in the large 48" valve, 
which had served its purpose of carrying the entire flow of the river during 
and immediately following the construction of the Winsor Dam diversion tunnel 
plug under Contract 52, indicated it was unduly expensive to substitute a smaller 
valve and to purchase special castings required to make the necessary alterations. 
Accordingly, satisfactory repairs were made by force account. Pending the 
completion of the waterwheel installation, which had been delayed on account 
of the war, the heating of the building was continued by the use of the hot air 
furnace previously transferred from the Quabbin Park Cemetery building. On 
August 31, 1945, an inspection was made of the accessible portion of the tunnel 
under the west dam abutment originally used for river diversion during 
construction. 

Operation of Quabbin Aqueduct 

The Reservoir intake works at Shaft 12 of Quabbin Aqueduct, the Ware 
River intake works at Shaft 8, and the outlet works at Shafts 1 and 11 A were 
kept ready for operation with the fine racks in place at Shafts 12 and 8, and 
with an auxiliary rack on the invert at the bottom of the tunnel at Shaft 9. 

The Coldbrook office constructed by force account between September 12 and 
October 11, 1945, the catwalk on the south and east sides of the Ware River 
Intake Building to make it easier to clean, during operation, the coarse outer 
racks on the siphon spillway intakes. Also repairs were made July 24 to 
October 30, 1945, on the trunion bearings of the main 72" Dow-disc valve. 
The work consisted of dismantling the valve, removing the trunion shaft and 
bearings, turning down and metal spraying the ends of the trunion, and install- 
ing new bushings keyed to the housing. 



P.D. 147 13 

The heating system in the Intake Building was changed from coal back to 
oil in October 1945. The tunnel was entered and inspected between Shaft 12 and 
Shaft 4 on October 16, 17 and 18, 1945. The tunnel lining was found to be 
in very good condition. 

Operation of Hultman Aqueduct 

The discharge of water directly from Wachusett Reservoir through the new 
Hultman Pressure Aqueduct and through the 7-foot diameter bypass into the 
Weston Aqueduct supply mains was continued throughout the year. The Hult- 
man Aqueduct intake works in Marlboro, the control works at Shaft 4 below 
the Sudbury Dam, and the Norumbega Reservoir gatehouse and emergency 
chlorinating plant were maintained with the fine racks in place at the intake, 
and fine screens in the Norumbega gatehouse. 

Progress of Construction Contracts 

Contract 134. — Contract 134, for making wash and core borings in the 
Counties of Middlesex, Norfolk and Suffolk was started July 30, 1945. To 
obtain additional information at the City Tunnel shaft sites, 862 feet of core 
borings were made; at the site of the proposed Blue Hills Reservoir, 265 feet 
of core borings; and at the District's Waban Hill Reservoir, 341 feet of wash 
borings. All the work was completed December 13, 1945. 

The Final Estimate, dated January 24, 1946, was for $8,275.17. The Con- 
tractor's force varied from 2 to 4 men. 

Contract 136. — Contract 136, for earthwork consisting of excavation and fill 
at the site of the Nut Island Sewage Treatment Plant in the City of Quincy, 
was started October 30, 1945, and continued throughout the year. The placing 
of Class B embankment was started November 19 with material hauled from 
gravel pits in Weymouth and Quincy. Placing of fill was started at the 
southeasterly end of the present causeway leading to the Nut Island screen house. 
As the fill progressed out into the harbor area, the accumulated mud wave in 
front of it was blasted with light charges to aid its removal. Placing of Class A 
embankment was started March 19 with suitable heavy material from the 
required excavations on Nut Island and from the south shore borrow pits. 
Excavation for the proposed digested sludge tanks and plant buildings was 
started the latter part of March and was substantially completed by the end of 
the year. Removal of riprap along the east side of the causeway was started 
March 13, and practically completed at the end of the year. This material 
was placed as riprap on the outer face of the new fill, starting April first. 
Additional riprap was hauled from quarries in Quincy. The work of preparing 
the site was about 60% completed at the end of the fiscal year. The existing 
water mains serving the Nut Island screen house and the United States Govern- 
ment Plant on Peddocks Island, and the electric lines serving the Houghs 
Neck pumping station were relocated as required. The new 60" offshore out- 
let drain was constructed of pre-cast sections and about 60% completed at the 
end of the year. The Contractor was authorized to construct the foundation 
for rebuilding Sea Avenue in Houghs Neck as required for a permanent access 
road. This work was done April 29 to May 9. The entire work of the con- 
tract was about 82% completed at the end of the year, on June 30. 

The value of work included in contract estimates during the year was 
$389,383.42, of which $350,445.08 has been approved for payment. The Con- 
tractor's force averaged about 40 men, the maximum being 114 for the week 
ending February 23. 

The principal items of equipment used were: 

2 Bulldozers 

3 VA-Yd. Shovels 

1 Crane with drag line for clamshell attachment 

1 Grader 

1 Tractor with 6- Yd. dump wagon 

In addition to maintenance equipment, he used a maximum of 83 trucks for any 
one week in hauling the fill. 



14 P.D. 147 

The total work done and materials furnished to date under the principal items 
of Contract 136 are as follows: 

5,250 cubic yards of existing stonework protection removed 



37,719 " 


" of excavation 


246,222 


" of embankment 


2,552 


" of crushed stone and screened gravel 


11,642 


" of sand or gravel 


10,207 " 


" of riprap 



Contract 138. — Contract 138, for soundings on the location of the sludge 
disposal line from Nut Island to President Roads was started November 26, 
1945, and completed March 1. From the floating equipment 154 soundings 
were made for an aggregate depth of 1477 feet. In addition, 11 wash borings 
were made for an aggregate depth of 153 feet. The Final Estimate, dated 
March 11, 1946, was for $15,488.95. The Contractor's force averaged 4 men. 

The Contractor used a 50-foot boat with an A-frame on a platform on the 
stern for his borings and soundings on water. 

Contract 147. — Contract 147, for surfacing Sea Avenue and Island Avenue 
in the City of Quincy, as permanent access roads to the Nut Island Sewage 
Treatment Plant was started May 25, and continued throughout the year. Work 
on Sea Avenue consisted of fine grading and rolling and of placing the base 
course of crushed stone, replacing broken cross drains, raising manhole and 
catch basin covers to grade and surfacing. This was completed during the first 
week in June. The work on Island Avenue consisted of minor grading and 
replacing broken drains. Placing of the surfacing was delayed by the necessity 
of getting approval of abutting owners on this private way. At the close of 
the year, the work on Island Avenue was about 64% complete. 

The value of work included in contract estimates during the year was 
$9,830.96, of which $8,847.86 has been approved for payment. The Contractor's 
force averaged 11 men with a maximum of 18 for the work on Sea Avenue. 

The principal items of equipment used were: 

1 Bulldozer 

1 1^-Yd. shovel with ^-Yd. bucket 

1 Grader 

1 Paving machine 

3 Road rollers up to 16 tons 

7 Trucks 

Contract 150. — Contract 150, for installing the hydro-electric equipment in 
the Winsor Dam Outlet Works at Belchertown was started March 7, and 
continued until April 13 when the work was suspended to await the delivery 
of further equipment furnished under Contract 149. Miscellaneous alterations 
in existing piping and masonry were 40% completed. Work on the outdoor 
substation and appurtenances at the rear of the building was about^ 30% com- 
pleted, also conduits were installed between the substation and the main building. 
Work on the erection of the 22,000-volt transmission line was commenced with 
the clearing of the right-of-way to the New England Power Company's existing 
line, and was about 20% completed. The entire work was about 13% completed. 

The value of work included in contract estimates during the year was $5,- 
286.00, of which $4,757.40 has been approved for payment. The Contractor's 
force averaged about 5 men for 5 weeks. 

Filling of Quabbin Reservoir 

The water level in Quabbin Reservoir reached, on May 31, Elevation 528 
above Boston City Base, the elevation of the masonry crest of the depressed 
section of the Winsor Dam Spillway. On June 22nd, it had reached Elevation 
529.05 giving sufficient head to permit the celebration of the filling of the 
reservoir by the lifting of the stop logs, and the discharge of the first water 
through the spillway channel to the Swift River below the Dam. Several 
hundred people attended the celebration. In the forenoon a large group of the 
Commission's employees and their friends inspected the works, and enjoyed a 
picnic lunch in the parking area on Quabbin Hill near the Observation Tower.

At 2:30 P.M. the stop logs were, lifted by Associate Commission Louis B. 
Connors. Judge Davis B. Keniston, Chairman of the Commission from its 
inception, May 28, 1926, to December 27, 1934, and Mrs. Frank E. Winsor, 
widow of the late Chief Engineer, after whom the dam was named, were also 
present. A sufficient number of logs were removed from the five six-foot bays 
to permit a discharge at the rate of fifty million gallons daily. A temporary 
measuring weir of this capacity had previously been constructed in the channel 
entering the river for the purpose of measuring the discharge, and obtaining 
an accurate rating curve for low rates of discharge over the spillway. The 
visitors spent the afternoon in viewing the reservoir from various vantage 
points along the scenic highway, and particularly the new and beautiful water- 
fall created by a plunge from the upper to the lower levels of the spillway 
channel against the background of the 41 -foot masonry arch span which car- 
ries the highway across the channel. 

Storage and Flow Records 

Quabbin Reservoir Storage and Release. Storage in Quabbin Reservoir 
continued. The following is a continuation of the information tabulated in 
previous reports, and include fluctuations during the entire calendar year 1946. 
The figures for storage show the quantity above the sill of the lower intake in 
Quabbin Aqueduct, Elevation 528.00. Below this sill and hence not available 
for draft to Wachusett Reservoir, there are about 10,000 million gallons 
above the reservoir bottom.
