ANNUAL REPORT 



PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT 



YEAR ENDING JANUARY 31, 1924. 



Boston, February 1, 1924. 

Hon. James M. Curley, 

Mayor of the City of Boston: 

Sir, — In compliance with Revised Ordinances the 
annual report of the operations and expenses of the 
PubHc Works Department for the year ending January 
31, 1924, is respectfully submitted. The Public Works 
Department, created by Ordinances 1910, chapter 9, 
now chapter 28 of the Revised Ordinances of 1914, was 
formed by consolidating the Engineering, Water and 
Street Departments. 

Organization. 

The department is composed of five main divisions, 
viz.: 

Central Office. — The Central Office is composed of 
the accounting force of the entire department under the 
charge of the secretary and chief clerk. 

Bridge and Ferry Division. — This division, under a 
division engineer, has the charge and care of all bridges 
used as highways which are in whole, or in part, under 



2 City Document No. 22. 

the control of the city; the care and management of the 
ferries owned by the city, including boats, slips, drops 
and buildings. 

Note. — The Boston and Cambridge Division, so 
called, is not strictly speaking a division of the Public 
Works Department, as this work is in charge of a com- 
mission of two, one member appointed by the Mayor of 
Boston and the other by the Mayor of Cambridge, 
under the provisions of chapter 412 of the Acts of 1904; 
but because of the fact that the present Commissioner 
of Public Works is the Boston member of this commis- 
sion and also because one half of the expense of this 
commission is defrayed by the Bridge Service, it is in 
this report treated as a division of this department. 

Highway Division. — This division, under a division 
engineer, has the care of the construction, reconstruc- 
tion and maintenance of roadways and sidewalks; the 
care of lamps and the lighting of streets, parks and alleys. 

Sewer and Sanitary Division. — This division, under 
a division engineer, has charge of the construction of 
sewers, catch-basins and waterways; the collection of 
and removal of ashes, garbage, refuse, street cleaning 
and the oiling and watering of streets. 

Water Division. — This division, under a division 
engineer, has the care of water pipes, installation of 
meters, water service, laying and relaying of water 
mains and the high pressure fire service. 

Review. 

A brief summary of the principal activities of the 
Public Works Department during the year ending 
January 31, 1924, follows: 

General. 

During the past year the Hyde Park paving yard was 
transferred to the Public Buildings Department for a 
new police station and our activities were removed to the 
former power station property of the Eastern Massa- 
chusetts Street Railway Company, through the tem- 
porary courtesy of the Boston Transit Commission. 

Horse-drawn vehicles are exclusively used in the 
Hancock street paving district, as there are no housing 
facilities for motor-driven vehicles. 

A new garage is necessary for the West Roxbury yard, 
where sewer, water and paving activities are carried on 



Public Works Department. 3 

and where motor vehicles predominate, as the present 
housing facihties are inadequate. 

A loan of $100,000 should be provided to be utilized 
for garages in the Hancock street and West Roxbury 
yards and for constructing a horse-drawn vehicle shed 
in the South End sanitary yard. 

The present North Grove street sanitary yard in the 
West End should be relinquished to the Massachusetts 
General Hospital and modern yard facilities, including 
provision for an incinerating plant, should be provided 
on the land either of the Boston Elevated Railway or the 
New Haven Railroad, at Commercial street on the 
waterfront. 

Bridge Service. 

The problems confronting the Public Works Depart- 
ment during the year 1922-23 were similar in many 
respects to those which generally obtained throughout 
the country. The commandeering of materials by the 
government during the period of the war and the uncer- 
tainties in the three years subsequent to the close of the 
war resulted in a condition, so far as bridge and building 
construction were concerned, such as had never pre- 
viously been experienced in the history of the country. 
Practically no replacement work as represented by new 
construction had taken place during the period of the 
war on the bridges of Boston, the result being that 
large sums of money were necessary not only for replace- 
ments but for maintenance until such time as money 
might be available for replacement. The most impor- 
tant work, now nearing completion, was the Chelsea 
Bridge, the principal northern artery of the city, at a 
cost of $650,000. This bridge will replace the temporary 
structure, a menace to pedestrians and vehicles for 
three years beyond what is estimated as the life of a 
temporary structure of that character, namely eight 
years. 

A steel and concrete bridge was constructed over the 
Boston & Albany tracks, at Beacon street, of the most 
approved type and which should prove serviceable for at 
least a half century; also a modern type of bridge on 
Cambridge street. The construction of these two 
bridges not only provides added protection for water 
mains previously located thereon, but in addition the 
road area for vehicles was materially increased. 

During the year 1923 with a view to minimizing the 



4 City Document No. 22. 

annual maintenance cost for bridge decking which makes 
necessary the replacing of deck planking every seven 
weeks, a bituminous treatment was applied which has 
demonstrated that it is possible by the new system to 
triple the life ol the road surface with a material saving 
in the maintenance cost, and where the design of struc- 
tures permitted, a permanent type pavement was sub- 
stituted. 

During the year 1924 it will be necessary to replace 
the Congress Street Bridge provided the funds are 
available, and which will represent an expenditure of 
about $700,000, and for which preliminary studies and 
designs have been prepared. 

The condition of the Dartmouth Street Bridge has 
been a source of grave concern to the engineers of the 
Public Works Department for several years and ap- 
parently the time has arrived either to discontinue the 
use of the bridge or to provide the money for replacement. 
During the year an appropriation of $150,000 should 
be provided for a new bridge in which the center trusses 
will be eHminated thus permitting increased road space 
for vehicles and safer traffic. 

Ferry Service. 

The possibility of serious accident owing to the 
condition of the East Boston ferry drops both on the 
Boston and East Boston sides has been imminent for 
many years and due perhaps in large measure to the 
tremendous cost of installing a modern system of ferry 
drops, postponement from year to year has taken place. 
During the year 1923 the sum of $250,000 was made 
available for two new double teaming ferry drops at 
the South Ferry of most modern type to facilitate the 
loading and unloading of boats. This work will soon 
be completed and in order to finish this work on the 
South Ferry two additional drops should be constructed 
for which $275,000 should be provided. These instal- 
lations should show greatly increased capacity for the 
handling of teaming traffic at the ferries. 

Sewer Service. 

The increased cost of sewerage construction, which 
has practically doubled since the adoption of the statute 
provision limiting sewerage expenditures to $1,000,000, 
has prompted presentation of an amendment to the 



Public Works Department. 5 

statutes which, if approved by the Legislature, will 
permit of an increase of 50 per cent in the amount an- 
nually expended for sewerage construction. The neces- 
sity for sewerage works as a means of conserving the 
health is too w^ell known to require comment. 

In the West Roxbury section of Boston, commonly 
known as Germantown, the old privy system still 
obtains and it is necessary for the protection of public 
health, since communicable diseases know no barriers, 
to at least make a respectable start upon the construc- 
tion of sewerage works in this section of the city to con- 
nect with the Dedham metropolitan intercepting sewer. 

The pohcy of discontinuing open brook sewers has 
been followed during the year 1923 and should be con- 
tinued until the completion of the work. The Dorchester 
brook sewer has been extended during the year 1923 at 
a cost of $65,000. It should be further extended. 
Shepherd brook, Brighton, should be extended, and Stony 
brook should have its covered channel extended each 
year until completed. During the year 1923, in ad- 
dition to the installation of new boilers at the Calf 
Pasture pumping station, a complete oil burning equip- 
ment was installed. 

Paving Service. 

In the Paving Service during the year 1923 there was 
more work going on at one time than ever before in the 
history of the department, there being a total of 110 
contracts awarded for street work in all parts of the 
city, including, for paving, 175,200 square yards of 
bituminous material and 80,000 square yards of granite 
blocks. 

Stuart street was completed and opened for travel. 

Chelsea street, Charlestown, was widened and paved. 

A start was made towards the Ashland street. West 
Roxbury, improvement, by the widening and paving 
from Hyde Park avenue to Wilmot street. 

For snow removal, arrangements were made whereby 
forty-five Champion blade plows were alloted to con- 
tractors for attachment to their five-ton trucks, so as 
to start plowing with the storm, day or night, and keep 
the roadway open for travel regardless of snow fall. 

A show loader has been provided, with side delivery, 
and two large "V" plows attached to tractors have been 
provided for use on some of the through streets on which 
it is not contemplated to use blade plows. 



6 City Document No. 22. 

The two-story garage is nearing completion in the 
Albany Street yard and is capable of housing about 120 
trucks and cars. 

Previous to last year a large part of the Paving 
Service pay roll was spent in construction work. This 
was changed in the last budget so that the personal 
service item carried for the entire year all the personnel 
of the Paving Service and they can be utilized either 
for maintenance or construction work as required. 

The inadequacy of the million dollars for reconstruc- 
tion and repair of streets in each year's budget, as we 
have on hand practically continuously necessary paving 
involving the expenditure of at least ten million dollars, 
must be apparent. The only immediate hope for 
prosecuting this work more quickly is the imposition 
of the gasolene tax, a part of which will be distributed 
to the cities and towns of the Commonwealth. 

The substitution of trucks for horse-drawn vehicles 
has brought about increased efficiency in the service 
and the consolidation of yard activities and the elimina- 
tion of excess stable facilities will be continued. 

Water Service. 

In the Water Division the new policy of awarding 
contracts in December for materials to be used during 
the next season's construction has resulted in the 
elimination of delays previously encountered due to the 
nondelivery of materials for underground work; and in 
addition, a considerable money saving through lower 
prices has resulted. 

The customary extention of mains and relaying of 
pipes, totalling 11.5 miles, was included in the year's 
program and 11.8 miles of old pipe were cleaned, thus 
providing increased service without replacement. 

The Pitometer waste survey was completed, the entire 
system having been covered, and it is thought that the 
department forces can keep in touch with conditions 
through appurtenances installed under the direction of 
the Pitometer Company, so that we will have continuing 
observance, and prevent waste through leakages. 

Two miles of high pressure piping were laid in the 
business district, making the total mileage in the sys- 
tem 13.7, with 373 hydrants. 

During 1924 we can properly lay about two miles 
of high pressure pipe, the materials for which have been 
contracted for or are on hand. 



Public Works Department. 7 

To improve and reinforce the main supply lines to 
Boston by replacing the 30-inch and 36-inch pipes in 
Tremont street, between Dover and Boylston streets, 
with a 48-inch main, is absolutely necessary. The 
situation as regards the two mains is decidedly danger- 
ous; during the past five months the 30-inch main has 
broken twice with heavy damage resulting, and while 
the last break has been repaired, the main has not been 
placed in service on account of attendant risk. The 
laying of this pipe will strengthen the pressure and 
supply on the low service area in the city proper and 
lessen the danger to said area in case the old 40-inch 
pipe in Beacon street (laid in 1860) breaks or is out of 
service and which is to be replaced with a 48-inch pipe 
to be laid in Commonwealth avenue, from Massachu- 
setts avenue to Boston Common, following the laying 
of the 48-inch main mentioned above. 

It has been the custom for many years to turn back 
into the city treasmy sm'plus from water income instead 
of providing for proper reinforcement of the general 
system by the construction of new mains which now 
renders it advisable to seek a loan of $800,000 out- 
side of the debt limit for the purpose of laying this 48- 
inch main. All surplus income in the Water Service at 
the end of each year should continue in the service for 
replacement and extension of trunk lines and not be 
transferred to the general or other funds. 

The high service area in Brighton, now dependent on 
a single 16-inch main, must be reinforced this year. It 
is intended to lay about 2,000 feet of 24-inch pipe from 
the metropolitan mains at Cleveland circle, through 
Sutherland road. Commonwealth avenue, and other 
streets, to furnish an ample supply of water and to 
maintain the pressure in this rapidly growing section 
of Brighton. 

Sanitary Service. 

The increased cost of the removal and disposal of 
ashes, garbage and combustible waste in accordance 
with the provisions of the ten-year contract made in 

1921 and which has some eight additional years to run, 
present a financial problem deserving of immediate 
study. The scarcity of inland dumps and the expense 
attendant upon the present long haul system will each 
year increase the cost to the city. During the year 

1922 an investigation and survey of existing methods 
and conditions was made under orders of the Public 



8 City Document No. 22. 

Works Commissioner by one of the most eminent 
sanitary engineers in America, and a copy of this report 
is on file at the office of the City Clerk, and a study of 
the same should prove beneficial in the draughting of a 
program dealing with this perplexing and expensive 
problem. 

Improvements have been developed in recent years 
through which the disposal of ashes, garbage and com- 
bustible waste is possible in properly equipped plants 
without creating a nuisance in the section where they 
may be located. Despite this fact a contract was 
entered into in the name of the city binding the munici- 
pality for a period of ten years to a system inadequate, 
unhealthful and increasingly costly. It will be impossible 
either to give a proper measure of service to the public 
in the matter of the removal of ashes, garbage and com- 
bustible waste or provide a disposal system that will be 
either economical or efficient until a change is made 
from the existing system. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Joseph A. Roueke, 
Commissioner of Public Works.

REPORT OF THE DIVISION ENGINEER OF 
THE BRIDGE AND FERRY DIVISION. 



Boston, February 1, 1924. 

Mr. J. A. RouRKE, 

Commissioner of Public Works: 

Dear Sir, — I respectfully submit the following 
report of the income, expenditures and operation of the 
Bridge and Ferry Division for the year ending January 
31, 1924. The expenditures of the division in the 
regular maintenance appropriations of the department 
were $916,737.75. Under a number of special appro- 
priations $792,588.71 was expended, making the total 
expenditures for the year $1,709,326.46. 

Bridge Service. 

Bahson Street Bridge. 
A contract was let to the C. & R. Construction Com- 
pany on May 31, 1923, for the renewal of the flooring 
of this bridge. The old plank flooring was removed, 
new 4-inch tongued and grooved plank placed and 
new stringers were furnished by the railroad company. 
The planking was waterproofed and paved with wood 
block paving with asphalt joints. 

Beacon Street Bridge. 

A contract was made January 3, 1923, with the 
Phoenix Bridge Company, for replacing the old bridge 
with a new structure, using the existing abutments. 

The new structure is of steel encased in concrete. 
It has three main girders carrying a system of steel 
floor beams, with a concrete floor, on which is laid 
granite block paving. All the metal below the floor is 
encased in concrete and blast plates are used over the 
railroad tracks to diminish the effect of corrosion from 
gases. The bridge was widened on the westerly side. 



70 City Document No. 22. 

The water pipes have been placed under the railroad 
tracks so that with the new bridge a very much larger 
space is afforded for traffic than was the case with the 
old structire. 

Work is completed with the exception of some minor 
details which will be finished shortly. The contract 
price for the rebuilding of the bridge is $104,416.91. 
The subcontractor for the approaches and concrete 
work is A. G. Tomasello & Son Company. 

Blakemore Street Bridge. 

The steel work was repaired and a new floor laid by the 
day labor force. 

Byron Street Bridge, East Boston. 
This wooden bridge was rebuilt by the day labor force. 

Cambridge Street Bridge over Boston & Albany Railroad, 

Allston. 

As stated in the report last year a contract was made 
on June 22, 1922, with the Boston Bridge Works, Inc., 
for removing the old bridge and replacing it with a new 
structure, utilizing the existing abutments. The new 
structure consists of four steel trusses, carrying steel 
floor beams, which are encased in concrete, and support- 
ing a concrete floor with wood block paving. 

There are three roadways, the middle one carry- 
ing two lines of street railway tracks. The bottom 
chords of the trusses are raised above the floor level so 
that the locomotive gases will not cause corrosion. 
The easterly sidewalk was built outside of the easterly 
truss, thereby widening the bridge and giving a greater 
width to the easterly roadway. On the west side of 
the bridge brackets were built out from the truss to carry 
the gas pipe, thereby removing the gas pipe from the 
roadway surface. These changes have made all of the 
roadways wide enough to carry two lines of vehicles 
with ease. 

The approaches to the bridge were paved with granite 
block. 

The bridge is completed with the exception of some 
minor concrete work which is to be done over the 
railroad tracks. The total cost will be $133,621.78. 
The work is being done by the Boston Bridge Works, 



Public Works Department. 71 

Inc. The subcontractor for the approaches and con- 
crete work is Cross & Roberts. 

Charlestown Bridge. 

A contract was made July 27, 1923, for cleaning and 
painting span 1 of Charlestown Bridge, which is the 
span nearest the Boston abutment. Corrosion had 
proceeded to a very considerable extent in this parti- 
cular span, necessitating the work. 

The work was done by Maurice M. Devine, con- 
tractor, and was completed September 21, 1923, at a 
cost of $1,600. The city furnished the paint; the cost 
of the paint was $618.25. 

Chelsea Bridge South. 

Work has been proceeding on this job under a con- 
tract made May 2, 1922, with Holbrook, Cabot & 
Rollins Corporation. The foundations have all been 
built and nearly all of the steel work is in place. Work 
should be completed in the spring of 1924. 

A contract was made with W. L. Miller Company on 
October 17, 1923, for a new drawtenders' house. The 
work was completed December 26, 1923, at a cost of 
$5,374. 

Columbia Road Bridge over New York, New Haven & 
Hartford Railroad. 
The Park Department requested this division to 
supervise the rebuilding of the floor of Columbia Road 
Bridge, and on July 30, 1923, a contract was awarded 
to the C. & R. Construction Company for doing the 
work. The brick block paving on the bridge, under 
plank and stringers, were all removed, the steel work 
was painted, new and larger stringers were placed, the 
stringers planked over with tongued and grooved plank 
(which in turn was waterproofed), and paved with 
wood block paving with asphalt joints. Work was 
done in two sections so that travel was continued over 
the bridge during the construction. Work was com- 
pleted November 16, 1923, at a cost of $20,895.41. 

Congress Street Bridge. 
Borings were made under a contract with Martin F. 
Gaddis, approved on August 23, 1923, for wash borings 
across the channel, to determine the material for the 



72 City Document No. 22. 

foundations of the proposed bridge. The contract was 
completed on October 2, 1923, at a cost of $1,666.02. 

Dana Avenue Bridge. 
A contract was let to the C. & R. Construction Com- 
pany on May 31, 1923, for the renewal of the flooring of 
this bridge. The old plank flooring was removed, new 
4-inch tongued and grooved plank placed and new 
stringers were furnished by the railroad company. The 
planking was waterproofed and paved with wood block 
paving with asphalt joints. 

Dartmouth Street Bridge over Boston & Albany Railroad. 

Studies were made for the rebuilding of this bridge 
which is in very bad condition. An order of the Public 
Utilities Commission, made April 27, 1923, provided for 
the rebuilding of the bridge in accordance with plans 
submitted by this division. 

It provides for the removal of the present super- 
structure and for the construction of two new piers on 
which will be placed a steel bridge encased in concrete. 
The middle truss will be removed and the girders of the 
bridge will be placed on the sidewalks, thus making the 
roadway much better for traffic. 

Hyde Park Avenue Bridge over Stony Brook. 
This bridge has been rebuilt with wood block paving 
with asphalt joints by the day labor force. 

Milton Street Bridge. 
On May 31, 1923, a contract was let to the C. & R. 
Construction Company for renewal of the flooring. The 
old plank flooring was removed, new 4-inch tongued and 
grooved planking placed upon new stringers which were 
installed by the railroad company. On aboyt one-half 
of the bridge wood block paving was placed, with asphalt 
joints. On the half of the bridge where the grade was 
regarded as too steep for wood block, sheathing was 
placed and on top of this was placed a bituminous coat- 
ing of tarvia, stones, and sand. 

Northern Avenue Bridge. 
On July 16, 1923, a contract was made with W. S. 
Rendle Company for enlarging the foundations of the 
power house and compressor at the draw pier of Northern 
Avenue Bridge. 



Public Works Department. 73 

A portion of the plank and bridge pier were removed 
and some girder caps cut to allow for the driving of six 
new piles and nine new spur shores. The new piles were 
capped, spur shores fitted and new bracing added. 

This work was made necessary by the installation of a 
new compressor at a cost of $1,475 and was completed 
September 7, 1923. 

A new air compressor was installed under a contract 
made on October 26, 1922, with the Hayes Pump and 
Machinery Company. This compressor has about 
doubled the air capacity of the plant so that the chances 
of a breakdown of the bridge, due to failure of the old 
compressors which had been in for fourteen years, has 
been eliminated. 

Sprague Street Bridge over New York, New Haven & 
Hartford Railroad. 

A contract was made with V. James Grande on May 
31, 1923, for furnishing and laying planking on this 
bridge. The old work was torn up, the railroad company 
repaired and painted the steel work of the floor system 
and renewed the stringers. When this work was done 
the contractor for the city placed the under plank and 
spruce sheathing and relaid the planking of the sidewalks. 
The work under this contract was completed on August 
13, 1923, at a cost of $10,603.74. 

A bituminous top was afterwards placed on the 
planking which consisted of tarvia and small stones to 
act as a w^earing surface. This bituminous top cost 
$624.98. 

Summer Street Bridge over Fort Point Channel. 

A contract was made under date of September 22, 
1922, with the Boston Barrier and External Brake 
Company, for furnishing and installing two highway 
barriers of a new type. This contract has been com- 
pleted. 

These barriers are very much stronger than the old 
ones and are of the yielding type. 

West River Street Bridge over Mother Brook. 
On May 31, 1923, a contract was let to the C. & R. 
Construction Company for the rebuilding of West River 
Street Bridge, over Mother brook. The old bridge was 
removed, new stringers placed on the existing abutments, 
new 4-inch tongued and grooved planking placed upon 



74 City Document No. 22. 

the stringers, waterproofing placed upon the planking, 
and a wood block paving laid with asphalt joints. 

Wood Island Footbridge. 

At the request of the Park Department this division 
drew up specifications and contract and supervised a 
contract made with P. J. Dinn Company on July 17, 
1923, for repairing the bridge and cleaning and painting 
the metal work. 

A new wooden stairway was built, a new wooden 
surface for the bridge was built, new concrete footings 
provided for column supports of the bridge and very 
extensive repairs made to the trusses, railings and metal 
stairs. The cost of the work was $6,818.55. 

Miscellaneous Bridges. 
In addition to the bridges already mentioned, bitumi- 
nous topping was placed on Blue Hill Avenue Bridge, 
Norfolk Street Bridge, Summer Street Bridge and 
Everett Street Bridge. 

Farragut Road Bulkhead. 

On September 7, 1923, a contract was made with 
W. H. Ellis & Son Company for the construction of a 
bulkhead of timber and piling across the end of Farragut 
road extension, connecting it with the bulkheads on 
either side. 

The work was completed on November 23, 1923, at 
a cost of $4,085.45. 

Garbage Dumps. 

The contract for repairing the garbage dumps at Fort 
Hill Wharf, Albany street and South street, with the 
Murray Engineering Company, dated October 14, 1922, 
has been completed. A great deal of rotten timber was 
removed and a new wood surfacing substituted. 

Some pile repairs have been made, chiefly at the 
Albany street dump, where examination disclosed a 
very serious state of affairs, the top parts of the piles 
supporting the platform being badly decayed.

FERRY SERVICE. 



''Ralph J. Palumbo." 

On April 23, 1923, the ferryboat "Ralph J. Palumbo" 
was taken out on the marine railway of R. T. Green's 
yard, Chelsea, for cleaning and painting of the hull. 
After the hull had been cleaned, scraped and washed 
off, it became apparent that extensive repairs to the 
hull were necessary and the United States steamboat 
inspectors so ordered. This work required the repairing 
of about one thousand rivets, by the calking, electric- 
welding and redriving method, and the calking and 
welding of some of the seams at the ends of the boat. 
While these repairs were being made, there were fitted 
some holding down bolts for one of the steam-steering 
engines. After the hull had received tw^o good coats 
of red lead and one of antifouling, with sufficient time 
between coats for the paint to dry, the boat was again 
put into the water. 

"John H. Sullivan." 

On July 27, 1923, a contract with the Bethlehem 
Shipbuilding Corporation of East Boston, to repair the 
Boston end of the "John H. Sullivan" was approved for 
the sum of $1,649. This work required the removing 
of the chafing irons, staving clip-angles on fan tails, part 
of the underlining and fascia plates and fastening angles 
and some covering board and the replacing of the 
damaged members by sound pieces. This work was 
somewhat delayed by a labor shortage but was finally 
completed on August 16, 1923. This work did not 
require taking the boat out of the water for the cleaning 
and painting of the hull. 

' ' Lieutenant Flaherty. ' ' 

On June 9, 1923, there was a contract approved with 
the Bethlehem Shipbuilding Corporation of East Boston 
for cleaning and painting the hull of the ferryboat 
"Lieutenant Flaherty." The work called for was the 
cleaning of the hull, the repairing of defective rivets and 



76 City Document No. 22. 

seams and the painting of the hull; all essentially as 
on the "Ralph J. Palumbo." This contract was com- 
pleted in due time at a cost of $1,301.70. 

''Governor Russell." 

On September 7, 1923, a contract with the Atlantic 
Works of East Boston was approved to repair the hull 
of the "Governor Russell." The work called for in- 
cluded the renewing of the saddle timbers under the 
boilers, renewing certain frames, repairing keelsons, 
cleaning and painting of hull and some miscellaneous 
repairs to the main engines and auxiliaries. After the 
boat w^as taken out on the railway and work started, 
the United States steamboat inspectors required much 
further repairs than had been anticipated but which 
became apparent as the progress of the work uncovered 
hidden conditions. The volume of extra work required 
was so great that the date of completion was changed 
from September 21, 1923, to October 27, 1923. All 
repairs were completed at a cost of $13,449. 

On December 29, 1923, owing to a broken tail shaft, 
the boat was again drawn out of water on the railway 
at R. T. Green's shipyard and necessary repairs made. 
This work included installing a new tail shaft complete, 
with composition sleeves and bushings, rewooding of 
both stern bearings and fitting new composition fasten- 
ings of stern bearings where necessary. 

"Noddle Island." 

The ferryboat "Noddle Island" was placed in dry 
dock on account of collision with an unknown obstruc- 
tion and considerable work was required on the rudder 
and wheel which were damaged. 

The large fire pumps on the ferryboats "Ralph J. 
Palumbo" and "Lieutenant Flaherty" were connected 
up with the main condensers with 4-inch copper pipe 
on the former named boat and 5-inch on the latter, 
for the sum of $442 and $498 respectively. The value 
of this connection lies in the fact that in the event of 
a shut down of the circulating pump, and unavoidable 
shut downs do occur, the boat may be kept running by 
starting up the large fire pump and making repairs 
while the boat remains in service. 



Public Works Department. 77 



''Hugh O'Brien." 

On November 12, 1923, the ferryboat ''Hugh O'Brien" 
was towed, in a leaking condition, from her berth at 
the National dock, where she was tied up in reserve, 
to R. T. Green's shipyard. When the boat was taken 
out on the railway, it was found that in some unex- 
plained manner, a number of seams were open and the 
stern posts were started from the hull. To properly 
repair the hull it was necessary to hook out all the old 
oakum from the seams and butts, refasten where fasten- 
ing was necessary, calk and cement the seams, fasten 
stern posts and clean and paint the hull. While these 
repairs were being made, the paddle wheels were over- 
hauled and some renewals made. 

Miscellaneous. 

On March 22, 1923, a contract with the R. Minton 
Company of East Boston was approved, for furnishing 
roadway barriers and sidewalk gates on the ferryboats 
"John H. Sullivan" and "General Sumner"; the con- 
tract price for the work on the "John H. Sullivan" was 
$2,960, on the "General Sumner" $2,250. These new 
roadway barriers and sidewalk gates are essentially the 
same as on the other boats where they have given satis- 
faction. The chief features of the barriers are, cast 
steel uprights, swivelled on pintles cast integral with 
the base, two |-inch chains strung from one upright to 
the other, across the end of the roadway by means of 
hooks and eye bolts mounted in housed springs in the 
uprights. 

Rebuilding Piers at the Boston Landings of the 
East Boston Ferries. 

A contract was let May 26, 1924, to the Rendle 
Stoddard Construction Company for the rebuilding of 
the middle pier at the Boston landing of the South 
Ferry, also the middle pier of the North Ferry and the 
rebuilding of 75 feet of the south pier of the North 
Ferry and to repair the face of the north pier with oak 
piles and oak girders and to do such other pile work at 
these landings as might be found necessary. 

It was found when work was started on the North 



78 City Document No. 22. 

Ferry piers that so much work had to be done on them 
that the work on the South Ferry piers would have to 
be postponed until 1924. 

The construction of the North Ferry piers was com- 
pleted November 23 at a cost of $63,316.34. 

Drops. 

With the increasing vehicular traffic on the boats and 
the building of four driveway boats instead of two, 
adequate provision for quickly loading and unloading 
became more necessary. To this end, after a careful 
study of the conditions, it was deemed advisable to in- 
stall drops which are capable of accommodating a double 
line of vehicles. With the increased loads on the pro- 
posed drops, the present method of supporting the out- 
shore end on a pontoon, became impractical. After 
considering different means of operation, it was finally 
decided to install electrically operated drops. 

At present only two drops are to be installed, one on 
either side of the route, but provision has been made 
so that at some future date the adjacent drops may be 
equipped with the new type. 

In the new type drop, the trusses, floor beams and 
stringers are to be of steel with a heavy oak backing 
for the chafing irons on the outshore end to take as 
much impact as possible. Near the outshore end is to 
be erected a gallows frame of steel which is to be covered. 
In the towers of the frame are located the live and dead 
load counterweights and the electrical machinery. The 
dead load counterweights are to take 98 per cent of the 
dead load and the live load counterweights, the re- 
mainder of the dead load and the live load up to a com- 
bined total of forty tons; all loadings in excess of what 
may be taken in the counterweights must be taken on 
the end of the boats. 

By ingenious arrangements of limit switches, mooring 
shackles, and the hanging of the counterweights, the 
electric winch which raises and lowers the drop auto- 
matically draws the moored boat into the throat of 
the drop and takes care of the rise and fall of the boat, 
due to waves or difference in the tides. 

Foundations for Ferry Bridges. 

A' contract was made November 27, 1922, with Ru- 
dolph Jergensen Company for building foundations 



Public Works Department. 79 

for two ferry bridges. Due to unnecessary delay on 
the part of the contractor, it became necessary to have 
the work on the East Boston side completed by another 
contractor. 

Work on the Boston side is completed with the excep- 
tion of some minor details. 

A contract for the work on the East Boston side 
was awarded on September 14, 1923, to W. H. Ellis & 
Son Company, and the contract was completed on 
December 31, 1923. 

The foundations on both sides are essentially alike 
and consist of concrete monolithic blocks on top of 
wooden piling. 

At the inshore end of the new bridges it was found 
necessary to place a reinforced concrete mat on top of 
the ground as it was impossible to drive piles through 
the numerous boulders which had been deposited in 
this spot years ago. 

Ferry Bridges. 
A contract dated September 14, 1922, was made with 
J. Edward Ogden Company, Inc., for furnishing and 
installing ferry bridges with the Ballows frames and 
accompanying machinery. This work was delayed on 
account of the delay in the completion of the founda- 
tions but a very large part of the work has been done 
on the Boston side and considerable of the steel work 
has been placed on the East Boston side. 

Respectfully submitted, 

John E. Carty, 
Division Engineer.

APPENDIX C. 

Boston, February 1, 1924. 

Mr. Joseph A. Rourke, 

Commissioner of Public Works: 

Dear Sir, — I submit herewith a statement of the 
operations and expenditm'es of the Highway Division 
of the Public Works Department for the year ending 
January 31, 1924. 

The maintenance expenditures of the Highway Divi- 
sion for the year were as follows: 

Lighting Service $747,191 63 

Paving Service 1,389,333 46 



$2,136,525 09 



The activities of the Paving Service comprise the 
maintenance of streets and walks by the department 
forces, repairs and reconstruction of streets by contract 
and the construction of 393 or assessable streets. 



General Plant. 

The asphalt mixing plant at Brighton has been operat- 
ing to full capacity producing hot mixtm'e and patching 
material for the other districts as well as the Brighton 
district. Three steam rollers were condemned by the 
State Inspectors making it necessary to provide in the 
budget for their replacement. A fleet of twenty-one 
trucks, ten Fords, ten Buicks and one G. M. C. were 
purchased and distributed to the several yards. These 
trucks have replaced the draft horses in different dis- 
tricts. 

The new garage is nearing completion and it is ex- 
pected it will be ready for use early in the spring of 1924. 

There are eighty-five horses, many of them being in 
service for many years. It is the intention of the de- 
partment to provide trucks, thereby reducing the 
number of horses. 



Public Works Department. 107 

While the snow fall was not so great as other years, 
the weather conditions such as rain and extreme low 
temperature made its removal tedious and costly. A 
new snow loader was purchased and operated to good 
advantage around the market and down-town streets. 

In the repair and the reconstruction of streets, about 
85,000 square yards of recut granite block pavement 
was laid, part in Talbot avenue, between Blue Hill 
avenue and Norfolk street, Dorchester; Dudley street, 
from Blue Hill avenue to Magnolia street, Roxbury; 
Melcher street. South Boston; Chauncy street, from 
Summer to Essex streets, city proper and several others. 

About 50,000 square yards of sheet asphalt and 
103,000 square yards of bitulithic pavements were laid. 
Three hundred and ninety-three streets w^ere constructed 
throughout the city among them being Stuart street, 
between Washington street and Broadway; Chelsea 
street, from Adams street to Bunker Hill street, and 
concrete roadways in Public Alleys Nos. 103, 104, 539, 
542, 543, 714 and 715. 

Lighting Service. 

There are in operation 5,598 arcs, 4,849 incandescents, 
9,713 single mantle gas lamps and 142 fire alarm gas 
lamps. There were 246 lamps of all kinds installed and 
64 discontinued, an increase of 182 over last year The 
Lighting Service is lighting 613 miles of new streets 
and about 300 miles of park roadways, private streets 
and alleys. 

Respectfully, 

James H. Sullivan, 

Division Engineer.

APPENDIX D. 



REPORT OF THE DIVISION ENGINEER OF 
THE SEWER AND SANITARY DIVISION. 



Boston, February 1, 1924. 

Mr. Joseph A. Rourke, 

Commissioner of Public Works. 

Dear Sir, — I submit herewith a statement of the 
actiidties, operations and expenditures of the various 
services of the Sewer and Sanitary Division for the 
year ending January 31, 1924. The maintenance ex- 
penditures of the Sewer and Sanitary Division for the 
year w^ere as follows: 

Sewer Service $605,796 63 

Sanitary Service 1,799,873 94 

Street Cleaning and Oiling Service . . . 928,876 31 



Total $3,334,546 88 

Sewer Service. 

During the year 1923-24 there were built throughout 
the City 8.274 miles of sanitary sewers and surface 
drains. 

Two hundred ninety-one catch-basins were built, or 
rebuilt, throughout the city, making the total number 
in the city February 1, 1924, 16,650 basins. 

Nine thousand six hundred fifty-five catch-basins 
and 133 drop inlets were cleaned, and a total of 37,321.49 
cubic yards of material removed therefrom, by contract. 

In the city proper, the principal work was the building 
of a 20-inch pipe sewer in Bedford street, a concrete 
sewer in Hanover street easterly from Commercial 
street, pipe sewers and surface drains in Alley 430, 
Post Office square and Bath street. 

In Roxbury, sewers and surface drains were built in 
Alley No. 930, between Peterborough and Queensberry 
street, in Alley No. 937, from Boylston street southerly 
and in Alley No. 938, between Ipswich street and Ips- 



136 City Document No. 22. 

wich street and a pipe sewer was built in Montana 
street, between Georgia and Cheney streets. 

In South Boston, the Farragut road overflow was 
extended to the pier head Une, and the sanitary sewer 
was enlarged in East Third street, between and P 
streets to reUeve floodings in this vicinity. 

In Dorchester a section of the Dorchester brook 
sewer, east fork, was built in East Cottage street and 
Humphrey street, consisting of 353 feet of 9-foot 10-inch 
by 8-foot 10-inch concrete sewer and 241 feet of 6-foot 
8-inch by 6-foot 1-inch concrete sewer. Sanitary sewers 
were built in Astoria street, Glenhill road, Owen street. 
Stow road, Mapes street. Savannah avenue and Standard 
street. 

In Brighton the Village Brook conduit was extended 
from the Brookhne hne to Prendergast avenue, consisting 
of 332 feet of 7-foot by 6-foot 4-inch concrete conduit 
and 1,337 feet 26-inch by 39-inch concrete sewer. 

In West Roxbury the Spring street brook was com- 
pleted, between Centre and Landseer streets. Grove 
street, between Centre and Washington streets was 
completed, and there were laid therein 3,165 feet of 10- 
inch pipe sewer and 3,146 feet of 24-inch to 12-inch pipe 
surface drain. Sanitary sewers were also built in Cass 
street, Cedarwood road. Prospect street, Ashland street, 
La Grange and other streets. 

At the Calf Pasture pumping station the contract for 
new boilers was completed and the plant put in operation 
on November 8, 1923. This work called for contracts 
for oil burning equipment, masonry settings for the 
new boilers, hand stokers for the new boilers, piping 
equipment, electric wiring and hghting fixtures, and a 
new partition wall in the old coal house between the 
present new boilers and the existing coal bins. The 
above work was all completed this year. In addition, 
a new roof and monitor windows have been placed on 
the old boiler house, new floor and ladders placed in the 
filth hoist house, the carriage shed and stable have been 
painted, and a new automatic telephone system, con- 
necting all the different parts of the plant, installed. 

Sanita-ey Seevice. 

Municipal waste materials are as one author calls it 
'Hhe soHd waste materials resulting from the natural 
activities of a community." The collection and dis- 



Public "Works Department. 137 

posal of this refuse is of vital importance to the comfort 
and health of every citizen. Municipal cleanliness and 
civic pride will amply repay for any reasonable expendi- 
ture of the public's money. A regular collection and 
rapid disposition of any city's refuse is one of the most 
important duties of any municipality. This requires 
sufficient appropriation, efficient organization and co- 
operation of the public. All these requisites are depend- 
ent upon each other to obtain any degree of success. 

The collection of the refuse of Boston is now per- 
formed by the city day labor forces and by five col- 
lectors operating under one year contracts. The ashes 
and rubbish collected are used for filling purposes in 
surrounding low lands. About one-fourth of the gar- 
bage collected is fed to hogs and the remaining three- 
fourths sent to Spectacle Island, where it is subjected 
to the reduction process. The above methods of dis- 
posal have been quite objectionable. The inland dumps 
have been a nuisance to the surrounding neighborhood 
and in some cases a menace to public health. Rat, fly 
and mosquito breeding abound at these points, and 
fires are always a possibihty. This present system is 
far from ideal, and as no cure-all can be proposed, a 
practical working program susceptible of shght 
variations must be put into effect as soon as possible 
in Boston. 

Incineration seems to be the only method of disposal 
lending itself to the solution, and I can consistently 
recommend a program to that end. This would 
mean that it will be necessary to motorize this division 
and have collections made with swift moving motor 
equipment which would allow the refuse to be taken 
to the point of incineration without any objection on 
the part of the pubhc. This would allow better collec- 
tion service and inoffensive disposal of all refuse and 
possibly a substantial saving over the present cost for 
unsatisfactory service. 

Street Cleaning. 

Efficient street cleaning is an indication of civic pride 
and a demand for cleaner streets and cleaner cities is 
universal, and the public are becoming more interested 
and more exacting each year. To keep pace with these 
demands it becomes necessary for each city to substi- 
tute machinery to supplant the old and more laborious 



138 City Document No. 22. 

methods. The development of the motor sprinkling 
and pick-up machine has accomplished wonderful re- 
sults, and I respectfully recommend the purchase of 
additional machines for the coming year which would 
allow us to keep clean all improved pavements through- 
out the city. 

Boston, like all cities of the world, has become so 
congested with auto traffi.c that it is becoming necessary 
to adopt night or early morning cleaning throughout 
our business district. For all work of street cleaning 
it is necessary to have a permanent and well trained 
corps of men under an efficient organization and with 
suffi.cient appropriation to keep up with all improved 
types of machinery in order to give good results to the 
taxpayer. 

The disposal of the street refuse can be logically asso- 
ciated with the disposal of household or trade waste. 
As much of street rubbish originates on the sidewalks 
and from there finds its way to the roadway, the growing 
practice of placing receptacles at fixed points on side- 
walks, in which all litter can be deposited to await the 
call of the collection wagon or truck, has greatly im- 
proved the appearance of many of our streets and 
alleys. 

The patrol, or "white wings" where a man is given 
some particular section or street to patrol with broom 
and pushcart and gather up all litter, has proven to be 
the only method of street cleaning that can be adapted 
to day time cleaning on our busy streets.

APPENDIX E. 



REPORT OF THE DIVISION ENGINEER OF 
THE WATER DIVISION. 



February 1, 1923. 

Mr. J. A. RouRKE, 

Commissioner of Public Works. 

Dear Sir, — I respectfully submit the following report 
of the operations, income and expenditures of the Water 
Division for year ending January 31, 1924. 

The improvement in the general economic condition 
and the development of unimproved property in the 
suburban districts, which started during the year 1922, 
has continued through the entire year. The total length 
of 6-inch to 16-inch pipe laid for extension was 8.3 miles 
as compared with 4.9 miles laid in 1922, this extension 
being occasioned by building construction in the suburbs 
and the demand for high service to supply sprinkler 
systems and fire pipes in the business district. 

As in the previous year the West Roxbury district has 
had the greatest volume of work and practically 3 miles 
of 8-inch and 12-inch pipe was laid in this district to 
satisfy the petitions for water service. The providing of 
an adequate fire protection to the City Hospital group of 
buildings by means of a sprinkler system called for the 
laying of 2,148 linear feet of 16-inch high service and 
1,433 linear feet of 12-inch high service pipe in the streets 
bounding the City Hospital, namely : Worcester square, 
Harrison avenue, East Concord street, Albany street 
and Massachusetts avenue, this pipe gridiron connect- 
ing to the 36-inch high service supply main in Washing- 
ton street and Worcester square. 

To supply an additional safeguard and avoid depend- 
ance on a single connection, the 16-inch pipe laid in 
front of the City Hospital was continued by the laying 
of 3,471 hnear feet of 16-inch pipe in Massachusetts 
avenue, from Albany street to the Edison Electric Plant. 

This cross connection between the 36-inch high service 



Public Works Department. 189 

main in the city proper and the 20-inch high service 
main in loAver Dorchester in addition to strengthening 
the high service in this section furnishes an ample pro- 
tection to the City Hospital. The second high service 
supply main for the business district laid to Oliver and 
Milk streets last year was extended through Milk street, 
India street and McKinley square by the laying of 1 ,000 
linear feet of 24-inch pipe terminating with a connec- 
tion to the 12-inch high service pipe in State street. 

The yearly policy of relaying lines of old and small 
sized pipes with larger sizes either 8-inch, 10-inch or 
12-inch to improve the fire protection and keeping pace 
with the greater volume of water demanded by the 
modern pumping engine of date has been continued 
and in 

City Proper: 716 linear feet of 6-inch was relaid with 
12-inch pipe. 

Roxbury: 2,875 linear feet of 4-inch and 6-inch was 
relaid with 12-inch pipe. 

South Boston: 480 linear feet of 6-inch was relaid 
with 8-inch pipe. 

Dorchester: 722 linear feet of 6-inch was relaid with 
12-inch pipe. 

West Roxbury: 4,001 linear feet of 6-inch was relaid 
with 8, 10 and 12 inch pipe. 

Hyde Park: 5,270 linear feet of 4 and 6 inch pipe 
relaid with 8, 10 and 12-inch pipe; a total length of 2.7 
miles of pipe relaid. 

Among the longer lengths relaid were: 

West Roxbury. 

Forest Hills street, from Washington street to Glen 
road, 1,358 linear feet of 8-inch relaid with 12-inch pipe. 

Oakdale street, from Green street to Lamartine street, 
1,107 linear feet of 6-inch relaid with 8-inch pipe. 

Garnet road, from Weld street, to Dunbar street, 
928 linear feet of 6-inch relaid with 12-inch pipe. 

Hyde Park. 

Cleveland street, from River street to Childs street, 
319 linear feet of 4-inch relaid with 10-inch pipe. 

LiuM^ood street, from River street to Vale street, 
575 linear feet of 4-inch relaid with 8-inch pipe. 

Perkins avenue, from River street to Childs street, 
561 Hnear feet of 6-inch relaid with 8-inch pipe. 



190 City Document No. 22. 

Winslow street, from River street to Childs street, 
502 linear feet of 4-inch relaid with 8-inch pipe. 

Pine street, from Hyde Park avenue to Maple street, 
670 linear feet of 4-inch relaid with 12-inch pipe. 

Dana avenue, from Folsom street to Hyde Park ave- 
nue, 417 linear feet of 4-inch relaid with 12-inch pipe. 

Williams avenue, from Summit street to Prospect 
street, 466 linear feet of 4-inch relaid with 1 2-inch pipe. 

Prospect street, from Williams street to Milton avenue, 
582 linear feet of 4-inch relaid with 12-inch pipe. 

The above work in Hyde Park ends a decidedly bad 
situation which existed in the Fairmount Hill and 
Stony Brook Reservation sections and now both sections 
are amply supplied for any fire fighting. 

City Proper. 

South Russell street, from Cambridge street to Myrtle 
street, 624 linear feet of 6-inch with 12-inch pipe. 

ROXBURY. 

School street, from Amory street to Walnut avenue, 
2,509 linear feet of 6-inch with 12-inch pipe. 

South Boston. 
West Broadway, from C street to D street, 480 linear 
feet of 6-inch with 8-inch pipe. 

Dorchester. 

Norfolk avenue, from the railroad to East Cottage 
street, 500 linear feet of 6-inch relaid with 12-inch pipe. 

In addition to above relaying of mains the last length 
of 24-inch high service pipe (laid in 1887) to be replaced 
with 36-inch pipe was done in Day street, from Perkins 
street to Heath street, amounting to 2,000 linear feet. 

This completes the enlarged supply main connecting 
the 48-inch metropolitan pipe in Prince street vnth the 
36-inch high service pipe in Heath street, which is the 
principal supply main for the Roxbury and Dorchester 
high service territory. 

All extension of and relaying of pipe was done under 
contracts and by the inclusion of this work in twenty- 
three contracts awarded at various intervals during the 
working season from April to November, inclusive, all 
appUcants for water calling for a main pipe extension 
was cared for without any delay. 



Public Works Department. 191 

The number of service pipes laid during the year was 
1,382, from f inch to 8 inches in size, as compared with 
963 services laid in 1922, showing that building opera- 
tions dormant during the war and up to the year 1922 
have continued their upward swing and are approximating 
before the war activity. For the years 1912 to 1916, 
inclusive, the average yearlynumber installed was 1,330 
while for the years 1918 to 1921, inclusive, the average 
number laid per year dropped to 213. 

Of the above total number of services, 105 of the 
4-inch pipes were for sprinkler protection. 

The Pitometer waste water survey of Boston started 
in 1920 was completed during the year being executed 
under two contracts covering the low service system in 
Brighton, the high service system in Hyde Park, the 
extra high service system in West Roxbury and the 
East Boston service, totaling 220 miles of pipe surveyed. 

The cleaning of the older pipes laid previous to or in 
the early 70's was continued and to the decided improve- 
ment of the system. The National Water Main Clean- 
ing Company of New York under contracts cleaned 
6,347 linear feet of 6-inch, 8-inch and 12-inch pipe in 
Charlestown; 17,700 linear feet of 6-inch and 12-inch 
pipe in South Boston; 15,465 linear feet of 6-inch, 
] 2-inch and 16-inch pipe in Roxbury; 4,506 hnear feet 
of 6-inch pipe in Dorchester; 10,994 linear feet of 8-inch 
and 12-inch pipe in Brighton and 11,717 Hnear feet of 
6-inch, 8-inch and 12-inch pipe in Hyde Park. 

During the year a large amount of regulating work 
was occasioned by the extensive program of permanent 
paving especially in the longer thoroughfares such as 
Dudley street, Talbot avenue, Belgrade avenue, Spring 
street, Hampden street, Medford street, etc. In ad- 
vance of this pavement all post hydrants not controlled 
by a hydrant gate were gated — all old decaying wooden 
gate or hydrant boxes were replaced with either cast-iron 
or concrete boxes and most important was the regulating 
and setting to grade every sidewalk cock and tube in 
order that every service may be controlled at the side- 
walk. As sidewalk cocks are not operated very often 
in many cases not in years the tubes in the course of 
time fill with dirt or get out of plumb preventing the 
quick and easy operation of the sidewalk cock when 
urgently needed. This class of work during the summer 
months is one of the severest demands upon the resources 
of the maintenance force. The regular work of the 



192 City Document No. 22. 

Distribution Branch consisting of repairing leaks, estab- 
lishing fire and service pipes freeing stoppages, shutting 
off and letting on water, etc., was handled to cause a 
minimum of delay or discomfort to the applicants for 
water, to water takers or to the traveling public. 

Complying to the Legislative Acts of 1907, relative 
to metering water services 3,992 meters were set on old 
services in existence previous to 1907, and 1,301 meters 
were set on new service pipes, a total setting of 5,293 
meters. On January 31, 1924, the total number of 
meters in service was 80,830. There yet remains to 
meter Wards 22 and 23 of West Roxbury and Wards 
25 and 26 of Brighton, the unmetered services being 
9,798, continuing at the present rate of installation the 
entire city will be on metered service by January 1, 
1926. With 89 per cent of Boston metered the work 
of the Meter Branch is increasing correspondingly, and 
in addition to the meters set 6,541 meters have been 
changed and reset and 6,520 meters have been repaired 
during the year. 

During the past year the Income Branch endeavored 
to continue the effort made in 1922 to reduce sub- 
stantially the amount of outstanding water rates, with 
the result that the receipts for the sales of water, etc., 
was $3,910,735.72, the largest amount ever collected in 
a year, and larger by $118,787 than the receipts for 
1922. While a portion of this increase represents 
unpaid bills back to 1916, a large percentage of the 
increase is due to a more correct statement on the bills 
and the enforcement of quarterly payments within the 
prescribed limits in place of allowing the quarterly bills 
to run over. The work of collection has been further 
helped by the enactment of a statute through the per- 
sistent efforts of his Honor the Mayor making water 
bills a lien on real estate. This law makes evasion of 
payment of water rates almost impossible and ends an 
outrageous condition which arose and grew yearly 
among a class of real estate operators and which in the 
past has caused losses to the Water Division of thousands 
of dollars. 

The new policy inaugurated in the winter of 1922 of 
advertising the main pipe and special castings contracts 
needed for the 1923 work in place of waiting until 
March or April of the current year has worked to the 
utmost satisfaction. Practically without exception in 
every contract the deliveries were as specified, and 



Public Woeks Department. 193 

during the entire season a sufficient quantity of every 
variety of stock was on hand and both pipe laying con- 
tracts as well as work performed by the Water Division 
employees was carried on without any delay. This 
policy will be continued. 

Further detailed information regarding operations 
of the various branches of this division will be found in 
the tables published herewith. 

Yours respectfully, 

C. J. Carven, 

Division Engineer.

* The completion of the metering of all service pipes to within 10 per cent of the total 
number of live service pipes discloses the fact that the total number of seivice pipes will 
not exceed 90,000. The large discrepancy is found to be due to the fact that previous 
to 1880 no deductions were made for pipes abandoned, etc.

APPENDIX F. 



REPORT OF THE BOSTON AND CAMBRIDGE 
BRIDGE COMMISSION. 



Boston, February 1, 1924. 

To the Honorable the Mayor: 

Sm, — As commissioner for the City of Boston I 
respectfully submit herewith the annual report of the 
Boston and Cambridge Bridge Commission for the 
year ending January 31, 1924. 

The commission is composed of two members, one 
appointed by the Mayor of the City of Boston and the 
other by the mayor of the city of Cambridge, under 
provisions of chapter 467, Acts of 1898. 

The commission has charge of the maintenance of the 
following-named bridges connecting Boston and Cam- 
bridge: Anderson, Cambridge, Harvard, Prison Point, 
River Street and Western Avenue to Cambridge. 

As there is no separate appropriation made for the 
City of Boston's portion of the expenses of this com- 
mission, the same is taken from the appropriation for 
the Bridge and Ferry Division, Bridge Service. The 
amount expended during the fiscal year ending January 
31, 1924, was $30,832.74. 

Brookline Street Bridge (over Charles River at 
Cottage Farm). 

, Under chapter 497 of the Acts of 1921 Cottage Farm 
Bridge was turned over to the Metropolitan District 
Commission and an appropriation was provided under 
the act so that the commission could make repairs to 
the bridge which was in a dangerous condition. 

Harvard Bridge. 

The draw span of this bridge has been sheathed 
repeatedly. The roadway has been nailed down a num- 



Public Works Department. 221 

ber of times and the under plank has been respiked. 
Stringers have been broken and have been replaced. 
Sidewalk repairs have been made. 

Something radical Avill have to be done, either toward 
repairing this bridge or (which would be much pref- 
erable) providing a new bridge. 

Prison Point Bridge. 
The sheathing has been patched on this structure. 

River Street Bridge and Western Avenue Bridge 
(over Charles River). 

These bridges were each sheathed once and some 
rotten under planking in each bridge replaced. Both 
these bridges are in very bad condition and should be 
rebuilt as was provided for under chapter 497 of the 
Acts of 1921, which act provides for the rebuilding by 
the Metropolitan District Commission. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Joseph A. Rourke, 
Commissioner for the City of Boston.
