ANNUAL REPORT 



PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT 

FOR THE 

YEAR ENDING DECEMBER 31, 1942. 



Boston, January 2, 1943. 

Hon. Maurice J. Tobin, 
Mayor of Boston. 

Dear Mr. Mayor, — In compliance with the pro- 
visions of section 23 of chapter 3 of the Revised Ordi- 
nances of 1925, I respectfully submit the Annual 
Report of the Public Works Department for the year 
ending December 31, 1942. 

The total budgetary expenditures of the department 
for the year were $6,720,489.63 and the total revenue 
from all sources, exclusive of the Sumner Tunnel and 
from the sale of water, amounted to $182,195.09. The 
Sumner Tunnel revenue amounted to $991,155 and 
the sum of $5,417,183.79 was realized from the sale of 
water and from other related services and work that 
is under the jurisdiction of the Water Division. 

The surplus in the Water Division totaled $1,305,- 
742.15, which is a modern all-time high and exceeds 
the 1941 surplus by approximately $666,000. Inci- 
dentallv, the dailv consumption of water increased from 
an average of 97,767,600 gallons in 1941 to 102,100,500 
in 1942, which was probably due, principally, to in- 
creased industrial activities caused by the current war. 
The Sumner Tunnel deficit amounted to approximately 
$264,000, exclusive of the $100,000 subsidy paid out of 



2 City Document No. 24. 

the State Highway Fund. This deficit is approximately 
$206,000 in excess of the previous year's deficit and was 
due, entirely, to the gasoline rationing which went 
into efi'ect about the 1st of May. If the volume of 
vehicular traffic using the tunnel had followed the 
trend of the first four months of the year, the tunnel 
would have shown a surplus for the first time in its 
history. As stated, however, the curtailed use of 
gasoline, which was ordered by the Federal Govern- 
ment as a wartime measure, had the effect of drastically 
curtailing the use of the tunnel by vehicles. On the 
basis of the volume of traffic that used the tunnel for 
the first four months of the year, I predict that this 
essential facility w411 be self-supporting within two or 
three years after the war or within one year after 
normal conditions prevail, in so far as vehicular traffic 
is concerned. 

There were 2,259 eligible employees on the rolls of 
the department as of December 31, including 104 em- 
ployees who were granted leaves of absence for the 
reason that they were in the military service. 

The water waste survey conducted in 1941 by the 
Pitometer Company, Inc., of New York in the High 
and Low Service systems in the so-called Sections 7-A 
and 7-B in the City Proper was completed in November 
with beneficial results to the city. The contract sum 
of $14,000 was paid to the contractor, as the value of 
the increased revenue that the department will receive 
as the result of the uncovering of leaks in the water 
system more than offsets the above-referenced contract 
price. I recommend that these surveys be continued 
and eventually extended to every section of the city, 
because the money spent on this work produces in- 
creased revenue to the city which more than offsets 
the costs of the contracts. 



War Time Activities. 

The department, under the direction of the Boston 
Committee on Public Safety, instituted and perfected 
an Air Raid Protection organization designed to protect 
and repair any structures that are under the jurisdiction 
of the department and which might be damaged due 
to air raids by enemy forces. These include all streets, 
bridges, sewerage and water structures, the pumping 
station and many other miscellaneous department 
owned or department controlled structures. Every 



Public Works Department. 3 

employee was assigned to a particular duty in the 
event of an air raid and the department participated 
in air raid tests held by the Safety Committee during 
the year. I feel confident that we shall, in the event 
of an air raid, be able to repair, within a reasonable 
time, any damaged structures that are under our 
jurisdiction. 

The Boston Salvage Committee was formed in 
February and the undersigned was designated as chair- 
man by the chairman of the State Salvage Committee. 
The Boston Committee was one of the first to be or- 
ganized in this state and it has been functioning most 
effectively throughout the year in inaugurating salvage 
campaigns and supervising and directing the collection 
of all salvageable materials needed for military or 
essential civilian use. 

The collection of prepared tin cans was started in 
August and continued every month thereafter during 
the year. In the five-month collection period, 1,700,560 
pounds of tin cans were collected and shipped to The 
Vulcan Detinning Company of Sewaren, New Jersey. 
Collections were made during the third full week of 
each month by employees of the Public Works De- 
partment, using department trucks. We require the 
residents to place the prepared cans on the sidewalk 
in front of their premises before 10 a. m. on the sche- 
duled day of collection. Our employees then go from 
street to street until every street in the city is covered, 
and collect tin cans and deposit them in the collection 
truck which then proceeds to the Cummings street 
(South End) freight siding and dumps the load of cans 
direct into a gondola-type of freight car from a ramp 
previousl}^ constructed by the department. The house- 
holders are cooperating very effectively in the saving 
of tin cans and the collection of this important material 
is proceeding satisfactorily. 

In October a gigantic drive for scrap metal was 
conducted by the committee and, with the use of de- 
partment employees and trucks, 8,140,000 pounds of 
scrap metal were collected and delivered to the yards 
of the scrap dealers, where it was sorted and shipped 
to the steel mills. 

With the assistance and cooperation of the Boston 
Elevated Railway and the W. P. A. this department 
started on a project, in April, to remove all the aban- 
doned street car tracks that were located in many 
streets of the city. The work continued throughout 



4 City Document No. 24. 

the year and 2,043 tons of steel rails were recovered 
and shipped to steel mills designated by the War Pro- 
duction Board. 

The war has created an acute shortage of tin and 
scrap metal and the collection of these essential materials 
in this city and other municipalities in the country 
has become mandatory and has done much to relieve 
the serious situation created by these shortages. The 
collection work has become an important wartime 
measure that is definitely an aid in the winning of the 
war. 

A drive was also started for the salvaging of waste 
paper and the residents cooperated to such an extent 
in this drive that the waste paper market became 
glutted and the drive was suspended for the time being. 

All revenues that the Salvage Committee derives from 
the sale of all salvageable material collected are donated 
to charity. Outstanding of the many contributions 
made was one in the amount of $10,000 to the Boston 
Community Fund drive. 

Under orders of Federal authorities and in order 
to reduce the sky glow which was silhouetting ships 
and making them easy targets of enemy submarines, 
all electric street lights were provided with inside 
shields w^hich set over the globes and the globes of 
all gas street lights were painted to a point below the 
light filament. These steps greatly reduced the light- 
ing effect on the street surface, but it effectively reduced 
the sk}' glow and gave members of our armed forces 
and merchant marine the necessary protection from 
submarine attacks. 

All department construction and reconstruction work 
was greatly curtailed, due to restrictions placed on 
materials by the War Production Board. 

Tex- Year Refuse Disposal Contract. 

The contract that the Coleman Disposal Company 
had with the city for the disposal of garbage and refuse 
collected from the following areas terminated on June 30: 

South Boston. Elm Hill (garbage only). 

Charlestown. Back Bay. 

Dorchester (garbage only). South, North and West Ends. 

Roxbury. City Proper. 

For some fifteen months prior to the expiration date 
of this contract I made a detailed study in order to 



Public Works Department. 5 

determine the best disposal system to adopt upon the 
expiration of the ten-year contract. 

In the course of my study I visited, on several occa- 
sions, the comparatively new 750-ton incinerator (which 
is the last word in modern incineration) located on 
West 56th street. New York City, as well as incinerators 
located in Cincinnati, Providence and Brookline. 

I also spent one entire day in New York Citj" to 
familiarize myself with the so-called "Land-Fill" 
method of refuse and garbage disposal in which New 
York has pioneered and adopted to a large extent, 
even going so far as to close eleven of its twenty-three 
incinerators in favor of the Land-Fill system of garbage 
and refuse disposal. 

I have also been materially assisted in making my 
findings regarding this important problem by examining 
and studying reports of an engineering nature prepared 
by the Boston Finance Commission, Division Engineer 
Post of the Sanitary Division of this department, and 
the engineering firm of Metcalf and Eddy, as well as 
two excellent financial reports submitted to me by 
City Auditor Charles Fox and the auditing firm of 
C. F. Rittenhouse & Company. 

Li my opinion, no stone was left unturned which 
might have aided me in making a complete stud}' of 
the matter in order that I would be in a position to 
recommend, with confidence in my decision, a S3%stem 
of garbage and refuse disposal that would be practical 
for this city to adopt and would be sanitary and not 
unduly costly. While every system in use for the 
disposal of garbage and refuse has been studied and 
considered by me, I am including, for the purpose of 
this report, only those systems that could possibly be 
adaptable for Boston. 

The so-called Land-Fill method of garbage and 
refuse disposal is comparatively new and, due to its great 
economy, has been adopted by many cities throughout 
the country, notably New York City. While the 
many cities that use the Land-Fill method vary some- 
what in operation methods, fundamentally the methods 
are all similar in that garbage and refuse are collected 
simultaneously by a collection truck and hauled to a 
land dump and dumped directly into a trench or crater 
previously made by a so-called "dragline" crane in 
the process of removing suitable earth material which 
is used to cover the garbage and refuse. This earth 



6 City Document No. 24. 

material, dumped in six inch layers to a maximum of 
thirty inches in depth, seals the entire exposed area of 
the garbage and refuse hauled to the dump each day, 
with the result that only that garbage and refuse hauled 
during the collection day is visible. By sealing the 
garbage and refuse with suitable earth fill each day, 
the ordinary objections to a land dump are removed; 
that is, flies and rats are ehminated and no objectionable 
odors are present as the decomposition of the putrescible 
matter takes place under a seal of 30 inches of earth 
fill. The big advantage of a Land-Fill is that it is 
very economical and costs only about one third to 
one half as much as incineration. It also has another 
advantage in making large areas of land available 
for development, with particular reference to increased 
recreational facilities. 

I do not favor the Land-Fill method for Boston, 
however, that is in so far as the districts included in 
the present ten-year contract are concerned, because 
there is only one available site, namely, the so-called 
Mile Road dump, that could be utilized for Land-Fills. 
This would mean that all the trucks now hauling waste 
materials to the Fort Hill, Albany Street, and Victors- 
Road receiving stations would be required to haul to 
the Mile Road dump. This would create an intolerable 
situation on the residential and semi-residential streets 
leading to the dump clue to the increased truck traffic 
which would result from concentrating, on one area, 
the dumping of approximately 600 tons of garbage 
and refuse collected daily. Aside from that point, 
Land-Fill is not the permanent solution to the problem, 
as the Mile Road dump would not last, as a central 
dumping site, for more than four or five years. The 
proximity of the bathing beaches to the Mile Road 
dump also makes it inadvisable to concentrate dumping 
activities at that location. 

The only other practical system for Boston to con- 
sider, in order to solve its garbage and refuse disposal 
problems for a period of at least fifty years, is incinera- 
tion, and I recommend, without qualification, its 
adoption. 

While this report relates only to the districts included 
in the ten-year contract, I might state at this time that 
incineration of all of Boston's garbage and refuse will 
have to be done within ten years, as all of the available 
land dumps are becoming filled and the farmers cannot 
be depended upon to collect the garbage for their hogs 



Public Works Department. 7 

indefinitely, particularly when there is a possibility 
that a state law will be passed, in the not too distant 
future, which will prohibit the feeding of garbage to 
hogs. 

Incineration is more costly than the so-called Land- 
Fill method, but it is the only completely satisfactory 
method for disposing of garbage and refuse that Boston 
can adopt. Incineration destro^'s organic matter (which 
is the cause of rats, flies, and odors in land dumps) and 
all combustible material, leaving only clean ashes and 
incombustible materials, mostly tin cans, to be hauled 
to a land dump. This residue amounts to about ten 
per cent by weight of the original waste material. A 
modern, well-operated incinerator is not objectionable, 
as all odors are eliminated and only on rare occasions, 
such as when starting a new fire in a boiler, can you 
observe smoke coming out of the stack. Of all the 
incinerators that I visited, I never saw as much smoke 
being emitted b}' the stack as one might observe, on 
many occasions, coming out of the stack of a heating 
or power plant having oil or coal fired boilers. 

While incineration is more costly than Land-Fill, it 
can be done at a lower cost per year than the system 
in effect under the provisions of the ten-year contract 
with the Coleman Disposal Company. Incidentally, 
the previous system was a combined system in that it 
provides for dumping on mainland dumps and at 
Spectacle Island and also includes a so-called garbage 
reduction process operated at Spectacle Island. 

The ten-year contract provided for the payment to 
the contractor of an aggregate sum of $3,780,000, or 
an average of $378,000 per year. 

To the latter figure $40,000 should be added, as it 
cost the city that amount to maintain the three receiv- 
ing stations and to pay for salaries of employees as- 
signed to those locations. It is seen, therefore, that it 
cost the city $418,000 a year to operate the previous 
svstem. If incineration is adopted, I estimate that 
the cost to the city will be $323,000 or $95,000 less than 
the previous system, although, in so far as sanitation 
is concerned, the previous system does not begin to 
compare with incineration. The estimated cost of 
incineration is based on the construction of two plants, 
one at a cost of $300,000, at or near the site of the Fort 
Hill receiving station, and another, at a cost of 
$1,400,000, at or near the site of the Albany street 
station.

The Fort Hill plant is to have a capacity of 175 tons 
per day and is to operate five days a week, twenty-four 
hours a day. The Albany street plant is to have a 
capacity of 700 tons per day and is to operate seven 
days a week, twenty-four hours a day. 

No use is to be made of the available waste heat of 
incineration at the Fort Hill plant, but at the Albany 
street plant we plan to use the waste heat for the pur- 
pose of developing steam and supplementing the power 
plant at the City Hospital in furnishing part of the 
heat, light and power now furnished b}^ the City Hos- 
pital plant to the hospital and some of the Public 
Works Department buildings located on Albany street. 
The excess waste heat resulting from incineration 
should be sufficient to provide for the entire needs of 
the hospital for five months of the year and for its 
partial needs for the remaining seven months. In 
other words, the present personnel of the City Hospital 
plant used in the operation of the boilers could be used 
for some other purpose or transferred to some other 
department for five months of the year because the 
incinerator could furnish all of the steam needed during 
those months. In estimating the saving that would 
result to the hospital if an incinerator were constructed, 
no allowance, however, was made for any saving in 
salaries. The estimated annual saving of $95,000 is 
based on a saving for fuel oil only and, in view of this, 
the estimate unquestionably is a conservative one. 

The decision to abandon the previous system of dis- 
posal of garbage and refuse and adopt incineration 
was made by me in December of 1941, subsequent 
to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Although, 
at that time, I felt that it would be impossible to obtain 
the materials and skilled workers necessarj^ in the con- 
struction of the proposed plants, I made plans to go 
ahead with the proposed construction, in the hope that, 
despite the war, the construction materials would be 
available. I actuallj- selected a site for the incinerator 
that is to be erected on city-owned land near the City 
Hospital, and awarded a contract for the taking of 
borings at the proposed site. The borings have been 
taken, but that is as far as the matter has gone because 
of events that followed shortly after the Pearl Harbor 
attack. 

Because of conditions caused by the war, I concluded 
in January of 1942 that, in the best interests of the City 
and the Federal Government, we should proceed, 



10 City Document No. 24, 

in so far as matters affecting the construction of the 
two proposed incinerators were concerned, as follows: 

1 . Defer starting actual construction of the incinerators 
until the end of the war because of the following reasons : 

(a) The drain on a material, namely, steel which is vital 
to the country's success in the war, could not be justified, 
for the simple reason that incineration is not the only system 
available for the disposal of garbage and refuse. Incident- 
ally, it is estimated that 1,520 tons of steel will be needed 
in the construction of the two incinerators. 

(b) The chief fuel, namely, waste paper, used in in- 
cinerators to burn the garbage and all other semi-combustible 
refuse, was being salvaged and reprocessed for military and 
essential civilian uses as a war conservation measure. This 
factor alone discouraged giving further consideration, at 
that time, to the erection of incinerators because, if in- 
cineration is to be done with any degree of economy, waste 
paper must be used as fuel and not the costly and precious 
fuel oil or coal. 

(c) The cost of constructing the incinerators will prob- 
ably be much less after the war than it would have been 
under war conditions. 

(d) A Federal agency, such as the old P. W. A., will prob- 
ably be established at the end of the war to take up the slack 
in unemployment and to assist municipalities to finance 
worthwhile construction projects of this type. With the 
total cost of the incinerators estimated at $1,700,000 it is 
not unreasonable to assume that the saving to the city, 
through Federal aid alone, will approximate $500,000. 

After deciding to postpone the erection of the two 
incinerators, the cit}^ now had the choice of two avail- 
able disposal systems, one of which was the then current 
system, or a modification of same, and the second, the 
so-called Land-Fill method of disposal. 

The Land-Fill method restricted us to the Mile Road 
dump with the inherent disadvantages outlined in the 
first part of this report, and, in view of this, I was not 
inclined to look upon it favorably unless we had no 
alternative; that is, unless we could not make satis- 
factory arrangements to keep the current system — 
or a modification of it — in effect until at least one year 
after the end of the war, which would provide sufficient 
time for the erection of the proposed incinerators. 

To keep the current system in effect, however, we 
were limited to negotiating with the Coleman Disposal 
Company, because it controlled Spectacle Island, owned 
the plant at that location, and also the scows used in 



Public Works Department. 11 

transporting the garbage and refuse from the mainland 
to the island. Unquestionably, we could have acquired 
the entire plant and equipment of the contractor by 
right of eminent domain, but the price would have been 
prohibitive (it carried a book value of approximately 
$400,000), particularly as I did not feel that we would 
have to keep the current system in excess of a two-year 
period. 

The sj'stem to adopt, upon the completion of the 
then current contract, depended, therefore, on our 
making satisfactory arrangements with the Coleman 
Disposal Company regarding a continuation of the 
system, or a modified form of same. If our negotiations 
were unsuccessful, we would have to adopt the Land- 
Fill method and utilize the Alile Road dump as a dump- 
ing site. This would mean that we would have to 
acquire the land by right of eminent domain, and invite 
proposals, after publicly advertising for same, from 
contractors to actually conduct the Land-Fill opera- 
tions. We were prepared to do this if we could not 
make satisfactory arrangements with the Coleman 
Companv, and engineers of this department have cross- 
sectioned the Alile Road dumping area in order to 
determine the volume of available filling space. 

I felt, strongh', that the interests of the city would be 
best served, however, if the current system were kept in 
effect during the wartime and pending the construction 
of incinerators, because the Coleman Company had 
alwaj's done the disposal work satisfactorily, and I 
have never received any serious complaints either 
because of the ]\Iile Road dump or Spectacle Island. 
The current system had been in effect for at least 
thirty years and to change to a s^'stem that was to be 
only of a two-year duration did not appear to me to 
be the sensible thing to do unless we had no alternative. 

With these thoughts in mind, therefore, I started 
negotiating with representatives of the Coleman Dis- 
posal Company in January of 1942, regarding the 
executing of a contract similar to the current one and 
which was to take effect upon the expiration, on June 30, 
of the contract. I had many conferences with said 
representatives regarding this matter and a satisfactory 
agreement was reached in June. 

The agreement provided for a one-3'ear contract 
at a contract price of $265,000. The agreed price was 
$113,000 less per year than that paid under the previous 



12 City Document No. 24. 

contract, and it also was considerably less than my 
estimated cost of incineration. It provides for sub- 
stantially the same work included in the previous 
contract, except that it does not require the Coleman 
Company to dispose of garbage at Spectacle Island by 
incineration or by the so-called reduction process re- 
quired under the provisions of the previous contract. 
It requires the company to handle the same volume of 
material as heretofore and the same districts are in- 
cluded in the new contract that were included in the 
old one. The city, therefore, is receiving exactly the 
same kind of service under the new contract, in so far 
as the actual disposal of garbage and refuse from the 
area included in the contract is concerned, as under 
the existing contract, but is actuall}- paying $113,000 
less per year for the service. This is why, in my opinion, 
the agreement reached bj- the city with the Coleman 
Disposal Company was the best one possible and, un- 
questionably, is advantageous to the city. 

The work under the new contract is proceeding 
satisfactorily and the method of disposal is, in my 
opinion, more sanitary than the previous one. 

Appended hereto are detailed reports submitted 
to me by the division engineers covering the activities 
of their respective divisions during the year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

George G. Hyland, 
Commissioner of Public Works.

Bridge Service. 

Charlestown Bridge Draw. 

On September 2, 1941, the Mayor approved a contract 
with Baker & Co. for bridge construction work on 
Charlestown Bridge, over the Charles river. The 
wooden deck was removed on the side roadways and 
replaced with Irving type steel deck. All the steel 
work was cleaned and painted. The center roadway 
was removed and replaced with wood deck. The work 
was completed November 1, 1942, at a cost of $57,208.02. 

Meridian Street Draw. 

On November 8, 1941, the Mayor approved a contract 
with Marinucci Bros. & Co. for construction work on 
the draw span of the Meridian Street Bridge. Work 
was commenced December 15, 1941. The entire wood 
deck of the draw span was removed and replaced. The 
draw foundation was strengthened and braced. The 



Public Works Department. 23 

machinery was overhauled and the steel structure was 
repaired. Work was completed May 1, 1942, at a 
cost of $37,509.89. 

Various Bridges. 

On September 2, 1941, the Mayor approved a contract 
with Martin Kelly for repairs to the deck systems of 
various bridges. (See annual report of the Public 
Works Department for 1941.) Repairs were made to 
the following bridges in 1942, under this contract: 
Broadway Bridge (over Boston & Albany Railroad), 
Dover Street Bridge, over Fort Point Channel; Jones 
Avenue Footbridge, Toll Gate Way Footbridge; West 
Fourth Street Bridge. Work was commenced September 
11, 1941, and completed Februarv 20, 1942, at a cost of 
$67,270.03. 

Maiden Bridge. 

A contract was approved by the Mayor with A. D. 
Daddario, under date of January 26, 1942, for con- 
struction work on the Maiden Bridge, over the 
Mystic river. The contractor removed the old wooden 
deck on the draw span and replaced it with Irving type 
steel decking; cleaned and painted the bridge; rewired 
lights for 110-volt instead of 550-volt current and 
repaired all steel work. Work was started June 29, 
1942, and is not yet completed. The sum of S29,S47 
has been paid on this contract to date. 

Summer Street Bridge, over Reserved Channel. 

A contract was approved by the Mayor with W. H. 
Ellis & Son Company, on May 1, 1942, for repairing the 
Summer Street Bridge, over the Reserved Channel. 
After this bridge was inspected by a diver it was found 
that man}' piles on both approaches were eaten so 
badley by borers that the structure was becoming 
unsafe. The contractor placed steel cylinders, filled 
with concrete, around the piles and made other necessary 
repairs to put the structure in good condition. Work 
was started November 8, 1941, and completed May 1, 
1942, at a cost of $5,697.64. 

Summer Street Bridge, over Reserved Channel. 

A contract was approved by the Mayor with Marinucci 
Brothers & Co., on January 2, 1942, for construction 



24 City Document No. 24. 

work on the Summer Street Bridge, over the Reserved 
Channel. Work was started April 29, 1942. About 
SO feet of the Boston approach and 120 feet of the

maintenance was taken care of by the electricians and 
machinists. 

Another duty of the division during the winter months 
was the supervising and inspecting of snow loading and 
removal from snow area No. 2, in common with other 
divisions of the department. This work was done under 
contract. 

In the course of the year part of the activities of the 
office force were taken up in work for other divisions 
and departments of the city. While these efforts, 
spread over the entire period, did not require a con- 
siderable amount of the time, the nature of the work 
was of an advisory and investigating nature.

All these boats are of the propeller type and are all 
steel boats. 

The work of this service for the year consisted of the 
following: 

Repairs to Steel Ferry Bridge, South Ferry, North Slip, 

Boston Side. 

On May 11, 1942, the Mayor approved a contract 
with J. A. Singeralla for repairs to steel ferry bridge, 
South Ferry, north slip, Boston side. The bridge was 
jacked into place; the contractor renewed outer hanger 
plates and repaired or replaced the steel work. The 
bridge was also cleaned and painted. Work com- 
menced May 13, 1942, and was completed August 21, 
1942, at a cost of $8,587.77. 

Ferryboat "Charles C. Donoghue.'" 

Upon the expiration of the ship's papers in December, 

1941, a contract was prepared to cover all necessary 
repairs to again put the boat in service in proper con- 
dition and to meet the requirements of the United 
States Steamboat Inspection Service. 

On April 25, 1942, the Mayor approved an advertised 
contract with the Quincy Dry Dock and Yacht Cor- 
poration, for doing the necessary work. 

The work included hauling the ship out of the water 
on a marine railway, cleaning and painting the hull and 
superstructure inside and out and making designated 
routine repairs, renewals and adjustments to the main 
engines, auxiliaries, piping, valves, etc. There was also 
included in the work the furnishing of a new bronze 
piston rod for the main condenser unit, the furnishing of 
new dampers in the uptakes from the boilers and the 
fitting of one new piston ring in one high pressure and one 
low pressure piston. 

Work under this contract was completed on Julv 3, 

1942, at a total cost of $17,624.60. 

On December 23, 1942, the air pump and dome of the 
condenser failed utterly. The ship was taken out of 
service at once on orders from the United States Steam- 
boat Inspection Service. 

Ferryboat "Ralph J. Palumbo.^' 

The ship's papers of this boat expired on July 21, 
1942, but due to the lack of funds for such work as 



Public Works Department. 27 

repairs incidental to a general overhaul of the vessel, the 
contract covering the work to be done was held in abey- 
ance until December, 

On December 12, 1942, the Mayor approved a contract 
with the Quincy Dry Dock and Yacht Corporation for 
making only such repairs as would be required by the 
United States Steamboat Inspection Service. Under 
normal circumstances, to insure the life of the ship and 
reduce maintenance costs to a minimum in the following 
3'ear, good practice would have been to make a general 
overhaul of the hull and machinery. However, since it 
was necessary to get the ship in commission in the 
shortest time, only limited repairs were called for in the 
specifications of the contract. 

Work started at once but was not completed during the 
current year. 

Department Force. 

During the year machinists, carpenters, painters, 
riggers and electricians, who are included in the personnel 
of the Ferry Service, made all repairs possible to the 
plant to the extent of equipment at their disposal. This 
work consisted mainly of minor repairs to the machinery 
on the boats, repairs to ferry bridge machinery, ferry 
bridge roadways and headhouse repairs in general. 

Sumner Tunnel. 

On April 25, 1942, the Mayor approved a contract 
with P. J. Dinn & Co. for erecting a chain link fence to 
protect transformers at the Sumner Tunnel. Work 
started June 24, 1942, and was completed July 23, 1942, 
at a cost of 13,197. 

Resurfacing in Sumner Tunnel with Granite Block, Brick 
Block and Ultimite Block, 

On May 12, 1942, the Mayor approved a contract 
with Edward M. Matz for resurfacing in Sumner Tunnel 
with granite block, brick block and Ultimite block. 
This work was supervised by the Highway Division. 
Work started June 30, 1942, and was completed October 
1, 1942, at a total cost of $15,327.30.

Public Works Department. 47 

As of January 1, 1942, the regular employees num- 
bered 467, and on December 31, 1942, our regular 
personnel amounted to 484, including 20 employees in 
the military service. 

The amount of money taken in through the Permit 
Office of the Paving Service was $9,937.17. Of this 
amount $6,883.67 was deposited with the City Col- 
lector, and $3,053.50 was billed to public service cor- 
porations. There are now on file in the Permit Office 
1,580 bonds in the amounts- of one, three, four and 
twenty thousand dollars covering the city against claims 
for damages, etc., through the use of permits. 

The regular force of the Paving Service was employed 
as usual in the maintenance of all public streets, resur- 
facing and patching macadam pavements, patching all 
permanent pavements, such as asphalt, granite blocks, 
etc., and taking care of all gravel, brick and artificial 
stone sidewalks. 

Work was continued this year by the Federal Works 
Progress forces in the removal of abandoned car tracks. 
There were 2,034 long tons of abandoned car tracks 
removed and sold by the city amounting to $28,282, 
and shipped to the steel mills. 

This division advertised and awarded twenty-four 
streets to be permanently' constructed with sidewalks, 
edgestones and roadway that were accepted by the 
Board of Street Commissioners with an assessment 
to be made on the abutting owners. Under this arrange- 
ment nineteen of the twenty-four streets were con- 
structed. Also this division has constructed twenty- 
seven new artificial stone sidewalks in the place of 
brick and gravel sidewalks. 

The following is some of the more important streets 
and work performed this year: Hillside street, Rox- 
bury, was advertised for reconstruction and work 
was started but not completed. The resurfacing of the 
Summer Street Bridge was completed this year. Har- 
rison avenue, from Beach street to Broadway, was 
resurfaced. Newbury street, from Arlington street to 
Clarendon street, the sidewalks were moved back 4 
feet, thereby reducing the width of the sidewalks and 
increasing the roadwaj' area. This has shown a marked 
improvement in the movement of traffic.

Lighting Service. 

The Lighting Service Appropriation of the Highway 
Division called for $937,783. A transfer of $16,400.26 
was received from the Public Welfare Department, 
making a grand total of $954,183.26. Out of this 
$952,659.28 was expended, leaving an unexpended 
balance of $1,523.98. 

Mazda lamps of 1,000 candle power were installed as 
follows: ]\Iilk street (1), Northampton street (5), Par- 
menter street (1), City Proper; Centre street (5), West 
Roxbury. 

Mazda lamps of 600 candle power were installed as 
follows: Albany street (1), City Proper; Norfolk avenue 
(1), Roxbury; Dorchester avenue. Traffic Island (2), 
South Boston. 

Mazda lamps of SO candle power were installed as 
follows: Parsons street underpass (4), Brighton; Bart- 
lett place (1), City Proper; Barna road (2), Galty 
avenue (1), Mercier avenue (2), Range road (2), Dor- 
chester; Bateman street (2), Glenwood avenue foot- 
bridge (5), Grassmere road (3), Lewis street (3), Mc- 
Donald street (2), Roanoke road (1), Safford street (1),

burv; Bourne road (2), Chellman street (1), Craft 
street (1), Howitt road (1), Sunset Hill path (2), Wood- 
bourne road (3), West Roxbury. 

Mazda fire alarm lamps were installed as follows: 
Maverick square (1), Sumner street (1), East Boston; 
Amory street (1), Roxbury; East Ninth street (1), South 
Boston. 

Petitions and requests for new lamps received from 
citizens and officials, also complaints relative to the 
Lighting Service have been investigated and attended to. 

Owing to war conditions there was no prescribed 
underground district for the year of 1942. 

Respectfully, 

William T. Morrissey, 

Division Engineer.

Comparison of 194i Costs. — Tlie year 1942 showed an 
increase in contract prices over 1941 amounting to 
$171,570. The only district showing a decrease was 
the Back Bay district, in which there was a decrease of 
$240 a month. A new district, called Stuart, was taken 
over from dav labor, and the charge for this district 
was $2,380 a month. In 1941 the work in the Dudley 
district was performed by contractor for $2,249 per 
month, but in 1942 the Mission Hill area was added to 
this district, and the cost of the work in the new district 
was $4,700 per month. 

Welfare. — 1942 saw the end of welfare assistance, 
there being only about ten men a day at the end of 
June, and none by the end of September. 

W. P. A. — ^ The W. P. A. project which was in 
progress, making a study of street and alley cleaning, 
closed officially March 5. 

Salvage. — In February the Boston Salvage Com- 
mittee was organized, with Commissioner of Public 
Works George G. Hyland as chairman. Meetings were 
held with representatives of the junkmen, and the 
salvage program was built around them, with emphasis 
on the salvaging of waste paper. Two hundred thou- 
sand circulars of information and instruction to the 
householders were distributed to all residences. There 
were also distributed 200,000 window cards to be placed 
in the windows to call a junkman, and established prices 
for paper, old metal and rags were published. Bill- 
boards, store-window displays, trolley-car posters, and 
radio talks were extensively- used to further the project. 
Effective support was also given by the newspapers. 
In May the price of paper had dropped because of the 
enormous amount collected, and by August paper was 
no longer worth collecting because the market was 
glutted. Throughout all this period we had the en- 
thusiastic support of the entire population. 

Tin Can Salvage Collection. — The collection of tin cans 
for salvage was organized so that city trucks collected 
properly prepared tin cans, placed on the sidewalks in 
front of the houses. Collections were made by public 
Works Department employees during one week in each 
month. Anticipatory experiments had been made with 
a view to getting the greatest density. Government 
circulars were distributed, store-window displays were 
installed, and radio and newspaper publicity was 
obtained. Women canvassers were organized and fur-

54 City Document No. 24. 

nished with ward maps, voting lists and pledge cards for 
house to house solicitation. 

Two freight terminals were constructed with ramps, 
chutes and spur track for direct loading into railroad 
cars. Although the Office of Defense Transportation 
had lowered the minimum carload weight on tin cans to 
fifteen gross tons, the size of the cars furnished by the 
railroad were, with few exceptions, too small to get this 
weight into the cars, so that the city had to pay excess 
freight charges in almost every case. 

The October collection of tin cans was omitted 
because of the Scrap Metal Drive. The amounts of tin 
cans collected and the revenue received were as follows: 



August .... 

September .... 

November .... 

December .... 

Totals .... 

The receipts were net after freight, but did not include 
cost of ramps, etc., or any charge for collection by city 
vehicles. 

Comparison with other United States cities showed 
that Boston stood first in the amount per capita col- 
lected, and second only to New York in the total tonnage. 

Scrap Metal Drive. — The Scrap Metal Drive was 
conducted by the Boston Salvage Committee, enlisting 
the support of the women canvassers, and prizes were 
awarded to the public and parochial schools collecting 
the largest amount per pupil. 

Bins were placed in two hundred locations throughout 
the city. City trucks removed the scrap collected to 
junk dealers selected by the War Production Board. 

Fourteen hundred and ninety-six (1,496) gross tons 
were sold for $8,513.53, and approximately the same 
amount was stored at Mile Road dump for later sales. 

Civilian Defense.^ All employees were photographed, 
and identification cards were issued, giving emergency 
assignments. Waterfront employees were given special 
passes by the United States Coast Guard. 

All oil-heating apparatus were converted to coal. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Adolph J. Post, 

Division Engineer.

APPENDIX D. 



REPORT OF THE DIVISION ENGINEER OF 
THE SEWER DIVISION. 



Boston, January 2, 1943. 

To the Commissiojier of Public Works. 

I submit herewith statement of the activities and 
expenditures of the Sewer Division for the year ending 
December 31, 1942. 

During the year there were built by contractors, day 
labor, private parties, and by the city under W. R. P. 
supervision, 2.39 miles of common sewers and surface 
drains throughout the city. After deducting 0.12 miles 
of sewers and surface drains, rebuilt or abandoned, the 
net increase for 1942 is 2.27 miles, which added to the 
existing 1,219.41 miles of common sewers and surface 
drains and 30.93 miles of intercepting sewers, makes a 
grand total of 1,252.61 miles of all sewers belonging to 
the City of Boston, and under the care of the Sewer 
Division on January 1, 1943. 

There were 110 catch-basins built or rebuilt and 
twenty abandoned or removed during the year, making 
a net gain of ninety catch-basins and a grand total of 
22,526 catch-basins under the care of the Sewer Division 
on January 1, 1943. 

Entrance fees to the amount of $860.34 have been 
deposited with the City Collector for collection from 
estates upon which no sewer assessments were ever paid, 
in accordance with Ordinances of 1910, chapter 9, 
section 10. 

578 permits have been issued, viz., 216 to district 
foremen and contractors and 362 to drain layers for re- 
pairing or laying new house drains. Inspectors from 
this office have personally inspected the work done under 
these drain layers' permits. 

Plans for the assessments of estates for sewer con- 
struction have been furnished the Board of Street Com- 
missioners, representing 9,145.39 linear feet of sewers. 



62 



City Document No. 24. 



827 complaints have been investigated and inspectors 
are instructed to report in writing in each case. 

710 catch-basin complaints were received. 

700 gasoline traps have been examined in garages and 
cleansing establishments, 

600 grease traps have been examined in hotels, res- 
taurants and commercial establishments. 

Reported in writing on 1,524 municipal liens to the 
City Collector, in accordance with chapter 60, section 
25, of the General Laws. Reported orally on about 
2,200 requests for information on municipal liens. 

Notices have been mailed to abutters in conformity 
with the Ordinances, chapter 27, section 8, apprising 
them of the construction of new sewers or repairs to old 
sewers. 

During the year 1942, 3,400 catch-basins were cleaned 
by day labor. None were cleaned by contract.

Division Engineer.

APPENDIX E. 



REPORT OF THE DIVISION ENGINEER OF 
THE WATER DIVISION. 



Boston, January 2, 1943. 

To the Commissioner of Public Works. 

I respectfully submit the following report of the 
activities of the Water Division, operations and expend- 
itures for the fiscal year ending December 31, 1942. 

In order to cooperate with the United States Govern- 
ment in the conservation of critical material, the work 
of laying and relaying water pipes has been severely 
curtailed, so that but very little work of this nature 
was performed during the year. 

The department was able to cope with the increased 
demands for water service by governmental agencies 
and private manufacturing plants engaged in war work 
without extension of additional water mains or the 
relaying of old mains. 

During the year 1,296 linear feet of water mains 
were extended, this work being performed to provide 
water facilities to new housing areas developed in 
connection with the war work. Seven hundred sixteen 
feet of pipe was relaid due to defective water mains. 

Engineering Branch. 

This branch of the Water Division was engaged 
principally in supervising the installation of additional 
service pipes to premises occupied by Government 
forces, occasioned by the war. 

During the year eighteen (18) employees were granted 
leave of absence for military duty for the duration. 
Due to the decrease in the personnel, and the difficulty 
of replacing employees during the war, the department 
has engaged the services of contractors to assist the 
departmental forces in the City Proper, Dorchester and 
West Roxbury districts. The total amount paid to 



Public Works Department. 91 

contractors assisting tlie department forces in regular 
maintenance work was as follows: 

West Roxbiiry District, approximately . $15,880 00 
Dorchester District, approximately . . 8,750 00 
City Proper District, approximately . 24,042.00 

A fire, which originated in the woodwork of W^arren 
Bridge, destroyed a portion of the water pipe trestle 
carrying a 16-inch water main between the City Proper 
and Charlestown, necessitating the replacing of 271 
feet of this trestle and the relaying of an equal amount 
of 16-inch water main. 



Distribution Branch. 

The regular work of the Distribution Branch, con- 
sisting of installation of new services and fire pipes, 
repairing of leaks, caring for complaints, shutting off 
and letting on water, freeing of stoppages in service 
pipes, etc., was performed in such a manner and at 
such periods as to cause a minimum delay and incon- 
venience to applicants for water, w^ater takers and the 
general public. 

The machine shop and plumbing shop were forced 
to handle all the drilling and connecting of services in 
addition to the regular work carried on in these shops, 
such as the machining and assembling of gates, valves 
and hydrants, and the department assisted the other 
branches of the Public Works Department in per- 
forming special jobs. 

In order to check the leakage of water, a Pitometer 
Survey of downtown Boston started in the latter part 
of 1941, was completed in 1942, and the contractor was 
paid for the actual leakage found, not to exceed $14,000. 



Business Office. 

The campaign inaugurated in 1938 to enforce the 
payment of outstanding water bills is still in force. 
Customers in arrears are notified that the flow of water 
will be reduced, but yet enough water is left on the 
premises to provide a minimum for health and sanitary 
requirements. As a result of this campaign the 
Water Division ended the year 1942 with a surplus of 
$1,305,742.15, this surplus being due mainly to the 



92 



City Document No. 24, 



collection of bills past due, and the increased con- 
sumption of water in Government properties and war 
plants. 



Main pipe petitions received 
Domestic service applications 
Fire pipe applications . 
Special meter tests 
Hydrant permits issued 
Repair deposits received 
Miscellaneous deposits .

The Metropolitan assessment for 1942 amounted to 
$2,906,978.76, an increase of $227,813.44 over the 
assessment for 1930. 

Total amount billed in 1942 .... $5,229,392 88 
Total amount collected for 1942 bills as of 

December 31, 1942 $4,226,226 43 

Total amount abated for 1942 bills as of 

December 31, 1942 $24,710 15 

Total amount collected in 1942 on bills rendered 

prior to 1942 $993,048 69 

This department contacts the water consumers very 
frequently throughout the year, and the conduct of the 
office has been such that I believe a spirit of good will 
between the customers and the employees has been 
brought about which is beneficial to the consumer 
and the city. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Daniel M. Sullivan, 

Division Engineer.

APPENDIX F. 

REPORT OF BOSTON AND CAMBRIDGE 
BRIDGES COMMISSION. 



Boston', January 2, 1943. 

To the Honorable the Mayor. 

Sir, — As Commissioner for the City of Boston, I 
respectfulh' submit herewith the annual report of the 
Boston and Caml)ridge Bridges Commission for the 
3'ear ending December 31, 1942. 

The commission is composed of two members, one 
appointed by the Mayor of the City of Boston and the 
other by the ]\Iayor 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 between Boston and Cam- 
bridge: Cottage Farm, Longfellow and Prison Point. 

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
