ANNUAL REPORT 



PUBLIC AVORKS DEPARTMENT 



YEAR ENDING DECEMBER 31, 1945. 



Boston, January 2, 1946. 

Hon. John E. Kerrigan, 
Mayor of Boston. 

Dear Mr. Mayor, — In compliance with the pro- 
visions of section 24 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, 1945. 

In spite of restrictions brought on by the war, the 
activities of the department have been carried on with- 
out appreciable curtailment of essential service. 

On the 17th day of December a very serious accident 
occurred when the Liberty Ship ''John Hathorn," while 
being assisted by tugs from the Hoosac Tunnel dock in 
Charlestown, crashed into the Charlestown bridge. A 
portion of the structure on the Boston side of the draw, 
measuring about 80 feet in length and 50 feet in width, 
was torn away, and the impact was so great that the 
Boston Elevated Railway structure which crosses the 
bridge was thrown out of position. Street car and 
elevated train service had to be suspended. Measures 
were taken immediately by this department to provide

fences and other means of protecting the pubhc, and, 
with the approval of your Honor, on December 31, a 
contract was entered into with Coleman Brothers Cor- 
poration for making the necessary repairs. The repair 
work is progressing very satisfactorily, and everj^thing 
possible is being done by the city and by the Boston 
Elevated Railway Company to restore to service this 
very important link in the city's highway and trans- 
portation system. 

During the year, the matter of expediting the flow of 
traffic through the Sumner Tunnel was given consider- 
able thought and study. I called into conference repre- 
sentatives of the two transportation companies, the 
Boston Elevated Railway and the Eastern Massachu- 
setts Street Railway Company, whose buses pass 
through the tunnel on regular schedule. A plan was 
worked out whereby the buses would enter the tunnel 
from either portal by the use *of the so-called free lane, 
without payment of the customary toll ticket at the 
time, with the understanding that each street railway 
company would make weekly payments direct to the 
cashier to cover the number of their vehicles passing 
through. A trial period starting with Wednesday, 
August 15, was determined upon, which it was agreed 
would be made permanent if it proved to be satisfactory. 

Observations made during the trial period indicated 
that the plan had such merit that it should be continued, 
and it has been made permanent. I am pleased to re- 
port that both corporations have cooperated in every 
possible way, not only to put into effect this plan, but to 
insure its smooth operation. 

The Water Division has continued its campaign for 
the collection of outstanding bills for water consumption, 
by reducing the flow of water in the premises upon which 
accounts are unpaid. A surplus of $1,473,054.57 of 
receipts over expenditures, based on collections and in- 
creased consumption of water, resulted this year. 

For many years complaints have been registered be- 
cause of the unsanitary conditions existing in Massa- 
chusetts Bay, due to the discharge of sewage from the 
city's storage basins at Moon Island. In the past, 
various investigations have been conducted and recom- 
mendations made for bringing about a solution of the 
problem. Recently, this department has gone into the 
matter quite thoroughl}-, and it has been determined 



Public Works Department. 3 

that the construction of a modern and up-to-date plant 
at the Calf Pasture, in Dorchester, for the treatment of 
sewage should be one of the postwar projects of the 
city. With that in view, a contract for the design of 
such a plant was made with Charles A. Maguire and 
Associates, with the approval of your Honor, on Novem- 
ber 2. This firm, after conferences with the officials 
of the department, is now at work on the studies and 
preliminary plans. 

Reports from the Division Engineers covering their 
operations for the year are attached. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Robert P. Curley, 

Commissioner of Public Works. 



City Document No. 24. 



The records of the department show that there are 
now 2,338 persons ehgible for employment in the several 
divisions, and of that number 2,288 were upon the 
January, 1946, pay rolls.

The foregoing does not include certain expenditures 
for construction w^ork for other divisions and depart- 
ments, which work w^as supervised bj' the engineers of 
this division. 

Under orders of the Department of Public Utilities, 
Commonwealth of Massachusetts, schedules of tolls 
and charges for the use of the Sumner Traffic Tunnel, 



14 City Document No. 24. 

between Boston Proper and East Boston, were ap- 
proved, covering the year 1945. 

The cit}^ has been operating only one ferry, the so- 
called ''South Ferry," since early in 1933, with the 
Boston terminus at Eastern avenue and the East 
Boston terminus at Lewis street. 

The more important works undertaken during the 
past year in the Bridge and Ferry Division were con- 
struction work on the Allston Bridge; repairs to East 
Boston approach of Chelsea Street Bridge; repairs to 
Dorchester Avenue Bridge, over Fort Point Channel; 
construction work on Sprague Street Bridge; construc- 
tion work on Summer Street Bridge, over Fort Point 
Channel; construction work on Fender Pier of Summer 
Street Bridge, over Reserved Channel; construction work 
on Boston Street, Dorchester Avenue and Southampton 
Street Bridges; repairs to public landings at Warren 
Bridge and Summer Street Bridge, over Fort Point 
Channel; repairing the steel ferry bridge, South Ferry, 
south slip. East Boston side; repairing hull, etc. of Ferrj^- 
boat "Ralph J. Palumbo"; repairs to 6-inch discharge 
from sump pump, Sumner Tunnel, cleaning fresh air 
ducts, Sumner Tunnel, cleaning and painting ventilating 
fans, Sumner Tunnel, repaving with mastic beds and 
asphalt joints in Sumner Tunnel; making core borings 
for Southampton Street Incinerator, etc. 

Bridge Service. 

Allsto7i Bridge, over the Boston and Albany Railroad. 

Due to the badly corroded condition of the steel 
hangers carrying the floor system a contract was entered 
into on April 25, 1945, between the city and Frederick 
W. Byron for the replacement of the hangers, general 
repairs and painting of the bridge. The work was com- 
pleted on October 5, 1945, at a cost of $50,584.37. 

Emergency Construction Work on the Charlestown 
Bridge, over the Charles River, 

On December 17, 1945, the "S. S. John Hathorn," 
backing out from the Hoosac Tunnel Docks to make a 
turn to go into the harbor, through a misunderstanding 
of signals continued at full speed astern and crashed 
into span 3 of the Boston approach at 10.05 a. m. 

The vessel stayed in position under the bridge for a 
period of approximately 15 minutes before attempting to 



Public Works Department. 15 

pull out. When the vessel did pull out, the downstream 
half of the bridge, consisting of three main girders and 
the entire supported floor system, fell into the water. 

The downstream center column support of the Ele- 
vated structure was sheared off and left hanging in mid- 
air, and all traffic was stopped from crossing the bridge. 

After inspection of the upstream half of the span by 
the Commissioner and employees of the Bridge Division, 
a temporary barrier was erected and single line of road- 
way and pedestrian traffic was permitted on the U. S. 
sidewalk and U. S. roadway, in order to moderate the 
severe traffic congestion which had the city tied up.

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

Ferries. 
Ferryboat "Ralph J. PalumhoJ^ 

To continue the ferry service by keeping one boat in 
commission, a contract was advertised calling for repairs 
to the "Ralph J. Palumbo." On the date of opening 
the bids, March 30, no proposals were received due in 
part to the unsettled conditions in the ship repair yards 
and in part to the extraordinary demands on the yards 
by the armed services. Since the ship's papers on the 
boat running, the "Charles C. Donoghue," expired on 
June 9, it was necessary to make every effort possible 
at once, to arrange for repairing the "Ralph J. Palumbo" 
in order to secure the necessary ship's papers from the 
United States Coast Guard, Inspection Service. On 
May 16, a contract was entered into with the Bethlehem 
Shipbuilding Corporation, to make all necessary repairs 
to the satisfaction of the United States Coast Guard, 
Inspection Service. Work under this contract started 
at once, but, on account of the extent of the work re- 
quired, it was evident that the boat could not be pre- 
pared for service until well after June 9. Under the 
circumstances, the United States Coast Guard, In- 
spection Service, was able to cooperate with the city 
in its efforts to maintain the ferry service uninterrupted 
and extended the papers of the "Charles C. Donoghue" 
until the issuing of the "Ralph J. Palumbo's" papers on 
July 23. 

Repairs to the "Ralph J. Palumbo" under the con- 
tract were completed June 19, 1945, at a total cost of

Public Works Department. 43 

The maintenance expenditures of the Sanitary Divi- 
sion for the year 1945 show an increase of approximately 
$303,000 over those for the year 1944. This increase 
can be broken down into two main items as follows: 

(a) In the item for the Collection and Removal of 
Refuse and Garbage by contract, there was an increase 
of about $137,000. This was caused by a shortage of 
manpower, union demands for higher compensation, 
lower efficiency and inability to sublet the sale of gar- 
bage to hog raisers. 

(b) In the Personal Service item, there was an in- 
crease of about $141,000, which was accounted for as 
follows : From the beginning of the year 1945, the fore- 
men and inspectors received an increase in salary of 
$300 per annum, but the $200 E.C.A. was ehminated, 
giving to this group a net increase of $100 per annum. 
For the last six months of 1944, the chauffeur-laborer- 
mechanic group received an increase of 50 cents per 
day. At the same time the E.C.A. was reduced from 
$200 to $100 per annum, making a net increase of 
about $56 a year per man for this group. The 1945 
total includes this increase for the whole year as against 
only six months of 1944. 

Although the war ended August 14, the collection of 
paper for salvage, under the direction of the Boston Sal- 
vage Committee, continued until the end of the year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Adolph J. Post, 
Division Engineer.

APPENDIX D. 



REPORT OF THE DIVISION ENGINEER OF 
THE SEWER DIVISION. 



Boston, January 2, 1946. 

To the Commissioner of Public Works. 

Dear Sir, — I submit herewith statement of the 
activities and expenditures of the Sewer Division for the 
year ending December 31, 1945. 

During the fiscal year 1945, there were built by con- 
tractors and day labor 1.21 miles of common sewers 
and surface drains throughout the city. After deduct- 
ing 0.20 mile of sewers and surface drains, rebuilt or 
abandoned, the net increase for 1945 is 1.01 miles, 
which, added to the exisiting 1,222.51 miles of common 
sewers and surface drains and 30.93 miles of inter- 
cepting sewers, makes a grand total of 1,254.45 miles 
of all sewers belonging to the City of Boston, and under 
the care of the Sewer Division on January 1, 1946. 

There were 59 catch-basins built or rebuilt and 11 
abandoned or removed during the year, making a net 
gain of 48 catch-basins and a grand total of 22,634 
catch-basins under the care of the Sewer Division on 
January 1, 1946. 

Entrance fees to the amount of $1,730.08 have been 
deposited with the City Collector for collection from 
estates upon which no sewer assessments were ever 
paid, in accordance with Ordinances of 1925, chapter 
27, section 10. 

394 permits have been issued, viz.: 179 to district 
foremen and contractors and 215 to drainlayers for 
repairing or laying new house drains. Inspectors from 
this office have personally inspected the work done under 
these drainlayers' permits. 

2,492 complaints have been investigated, and in- 
spectors are instructed to report in writing in each case. 

1,152 catch-basin complaints were received. 



50 City Document No. 24. 

Reported in writing on 2,919 municipal liens to the 
City Collector, in accordance with chapter 60, section 
25, of the General Laws. Reported orally on about 
2,500 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 1945, 2,362 catch-basins were cleaned 
by day labor and 2,158 catch-basins were cleaned 
b}^ contract. 

Respectfully, 

Robert P. Shea, 
Division Engineer.

APPENDIX E. 



REPORT OF THE DIVISION ENGINEER OF 
THE WATER DIVISION. 



Boston, January 2, 1946. 

To the Commissioner of Public Works. 

Dear Sir, — I respectfully submit the following report 
of the activities of the Water Division, operations and 
expenditures for the fiscal year ending December 31, 
1945. 

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

823 linear feet of water mains were extended, this 
work being performed to provide facilities to new hous- 
ing areas developed in connection with the war work. 
717 linear feet of pipe were relaid due to defective water 
mains. 

Distribution Branch. 

Due to the decrease in personnel, and the difficulty of 
replacing employees during the war, the department has 
engaged the services of contractors to assist the depart- 
mental forces in the City Proper, Dorchester and West 
Roxbury districts. 

The regular work of this branch, consisting of in- 
stallation of new services and fire pipes, repairing of 
leaks, caring for complaints, shutting off and letting 
on water, freeing of stoppages in pipes, etc., was per- 
formed in such a manner and at such periods as to cause 
minimum delay and inconvenience to applicants for 
water, water takers and the general public. 

The machine shop and plumbing shop were forced to 
handle all the driUing 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 performing 
special jobs. 



Public Works Department. 



71 



In order to check the leakage of water, a Pitometer 
Survey of Brighton High Service, Back Bay and Dor- 
chester, known as Pitometer Sections 2, 8 and 9, was 
completed in 1945, and the contractor was paid for 
the actual leakage found the sum of $15,000. 



Business Office. 

The campaign inaugurated in 1938 to enforce the 
payment of outstanding water bills is still in force. Cus- 
tomers 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 require- 
ments. As a result of this campaign the Water Divi- 
sion ended the year 1945 with a surplus of $1,473,054.57, 
this surplus being due mainly to the collection of bills 
past due, and the increased consumption 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 
Main pipe repairs .

sessment for 1930.

72 ' City Document No. 24. 

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

The issuance of statements of outstanding water bills 
to the consumers has been continued. The apprecia- 
tion of the customers is shown by the fact that the num- 
ber of hens placed on premises this year has been 
reduced. 

Respectfully submitted, 

D. M. Sullivan, 

Division Engineer.

APPENDIX F. 

REPORT OF BOSTON AND CAMBRIDGE 
BRIDGES COMMISSION. 



Boston, January 2, 1946. 

To the Honorable the Mayor. 

Dear Sir, — As Commissioner for the City of Boston, 
I respectfully submit herewith the annual report of the 
Boston and Cambridge Bridges Commission for the year 
ending December 31, 1945. 

The Commission is composed of two members, one 
appointed by the Mayor of the Citj^ 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 between Boston and Cam- 
bridge : 

Cottage Farm, Longfellow and Prison Point. 

As there is no separate appropriation for the Citj- of 
Boston's portion of the expenses of this Commission, the 
same is taken from the appropriation for the Bridge and 
Ferry Division, Bridge Service. The amount expended 
during the fiscal year ending December 31, 1945, was 
$4,289.53. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Robert P. Curley, 
Commissioner for the City of Boston. 

Note. — Under chapter 690 of the Acts of 1945, the Boston and Cambridge Bridges 
Commission was abolished as of October 22, 1945, and the bridges formerly under the 
control of this Commission were turned over to the Metropolitan District Commission.
