ANNUAL REPORT 



PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT 

FOR THE 

YEAR ENDING DECEMBER 31, 1046. 



Boston, January 2, 1947. 

Hon. James ]\I. Curley, 

Mayor of Boston. 
Dear I\Ir. Mayor: 

In compliance with the provisions of section 24 of 
chapter 3 of the Revised Ordinances of 1925, I respect- 
fully submit the Annual Report of the Public Works 
Department for the year ending December 31, 1946. 

The street program has been a very extensive one. 
Through funds which were provided by the present 
administration, ninety-five were constructed or recon- 
structed during the j^ear, at a cost of approximately 
$1,597,706. In addition, extensive patching operations 
were carried on in all sections of the city, at a cost of 
$196,610, making our total expenses for the vear, 
$1,794,316. 

For many years while the Sanitary Division of the 
Public Works Department has carried on the bulk of 
the street-cleaning work throughout the city, there were 
certain sections where the street cleaning was done b}^ 
the forces of the Highway Division. We are reorganiz- 
ing this work so that, eventually, all street-cleaning 
activities will be carried on by the Sanitary Division. 
The first district affected by this new system is Jamaica 
Plain, where recently a new street-cleaning service was 
established. 



2 City Document No. 24. 

Our street program has been a very creditable one, 
and the structural condition and cleanliness of our 
streets are apparent, even to the casual observer. One 
particular street worthy of mention at this time is 
Columbus avenue, from Northampton street to 
Roxbur}' Crossing, where the sidewalks were narrowed 
and the roadway widened, including the installation of 
traffic separation islands. Columbus avenue is a direct 
route to intown Boston, and the improvement which 
we have made thus far on this street, and which is to be 
continued as soon as conditions permit, will, I feel, help 
in a large measure in restoring this particular street, as 
the new construction, together with the improved 
lighting facilities which have been installed, will serve 
as an incentive to property owners to improve their 
premises. 

A problem which affected the City for many years 
was the presence of the so-called looper traps in the 
roadwa}' of Bunker Hill street, Charlestown. Much 
agitation has been carried on for a long time for the 
removal of these traps, and finalh% with the approval 
of your Honor, steps were taken to bring about their 
ehmination. This was accomphshed; the traps were 
removed and the roadwaj^ was opened to complete use 
just prior to the 17th of last June. 

Besides the two iriiprovements which I have men- 
tioned, this department has completed street construc- 
tion jobs on the American Legion Highway, in Dor- 
chester, from Blue Hill avenue to Walk Hill street; on 
Medford street, Charlestown, from Chelsea street to 
Main street; Day square and Bennington street. East 
Boston, from Prescott street approximately to the 
railroad bridge; Bremen street. East Boston, from 
Porter street to Bennington street; and ^Metropolitan 
avenue. West Roxbury, from Kittredge street to Poplar 
street. We are now negotiating with the Department 
of Public Works of the Commonwealth, with a view to 
obtaining the cooperation of the State in the matter of 
reconstructing, under chapter 90 of the General Laws, 
Beacon street in Brighton, from Cleveland Circle to the 
Newton line, and Gallivan Boulevard, in Dorchester, 
from the traffic circle at Neponset Bridge to Granite 
avenue. Our negotiations are progressing satisfactorily, 
and with the joint cooperation of the State and the 
City, we hope to be able to rebuild both of these streets 
during the coming construction season.

Public Works Department. 3 

On October 1 of the present year, the City became 
the owner of all of the equipment used for street 
lighting. This equipment, with the exception of the 
posts which always were the property of the City, was 
purchased by agreement with the owners. A contract 
was awarded for lighting, extinguishing, and servicing 
the lamps on very satisfactory terms, and there is no 
question but, from a financial standpoint, the Cit^' will 
save mone}' by carrying on gas lighting under the 
present arrangement. 

We have taken advantage of the sales of property 
and equipment which became surplus, as far as the 
Federal Government is concerned. Tires and equip- 
ment of various types have been purchased at con- 
siderable saving to the City, and I am sure that the 
results we have obtained have justified the action 
taken. In spite of the fact that motor vehicle equip- 
ment has not been available for some time, the 
department has continued to operate with the equipment 
it already possessed by inheritance from previous 
administrations. I feel that the equipment of this 
department is in a better condition than it has been 
for 3^ears, due to the fact that most of it has been 
thoroughly overhauled at a reasonable expense, and it 
is now ready for service in connection \^'ith our snow- 
removal activities. 

The Public Works Department during the year has 
cooperated very extensively with the Boston Housing 
Authority, the State Housing Authority, and the 
Federal Public Housing Authority, in the matter of the 
construction and erection of temporary housing for 
veterans. It was possible to carry on this particular 
work because of the interest shown by your Honor in 
securing funds for the purpose. Under our direction 
water pipes were laid, sewerage facilities installed, and 
roadways constructed at Franklin Field and at the 
Alsen Playground in Dorchester. 

Many of our bridges are in need of extensive repairs; 
in fact, some of them should be completely rebuilt. 
All of these bridges carry very heavy traffic, and in 
order to keep them in operation, we have had to spend 
considerable money this year on a number of them. 
A very large job had to be done on the Charlestown 
Bridge over the Charles River, because of an accident 
which occurred on the 17th of last December when a 
boat backing out from one of the docks, ran into the 



4 City Document No. 24. 

bridge, throwing it entirely out of commission, as well 
as interrupting the service of the Elevated structure. 
We proceeded immediately to make repairs, which cost 
nearly $100,000. The matter of reimbursing the City 
for the expense to which it had to go for this work is 
now being handled by the Law Department, in court. 

The business of the Sumner Tunnel continues to gain. 
For the eleven months ending November 30 the vehicle 
count and the revenue from toll rates exceeded those 
of the entire year of 1945. From present indications, 
it is evident that the business of the tunnel this year 
will be the largest that it has been since the tunnel was 
opened on the 30th day of June, 1934. Due to a new 
system which was inaugurated some time ago in the 
Sumner Tunnel, traffic now flows through this facility 
more smoothly. Through an arrangement made with 
the street railway companies which operate busses in 
the tunnel, their vehicles are now permitted to go 
through without payment of the customary toll, and 
an accounting is made for the vehicles of these com- 
panies which go through the tunnel. Payment is then 
made on a monthly basis. In that way no stoppages 
occur because of the necessity of the operators of busses 
having to present tickets as thej^ enter the tunnel at 
either end. This is an accomplishment which I feel has 
helped very much in the operation of the tunnel. We 
are now making arrangements to award contracts for 
some necessary repairs to the Administration Building 
and also to the ventilation buildings connected with the 
tunnel. 

Through the efforts of this department in collecting 
outstanding bills, which received the wholehearted 
approval and encouragement of your Honor, water 
revenue increased to such an extent that it was possible 
to make a reduction in the rates to consumers. The 
officials and employees of this department in the Water 
Division deserve credit for the manner in which they 
have handled the affairs of the Division and the record 
which has been made is worthy of commendation. On 
July 1, with the approval of your Honor and also with the 
approval of the Metropolitan District Commission, a 20 
per cent reduction was made in the rates for water fur- 
nished to consumers. It is very gratifying to know that 
it was possible for this department to take such a step. 

At the request of this department, your Honor asked 
the City Council to provide a loan of $200,000 for the 
erection of an incinerator in the Brighton district. The 



I 



Public Works Department. 5 

necessan' authorization has been received and this 
department is about ready to proceed with making 
arrangements for awarding a contract. This, in my 
opinion, is one means of solving the problem of garbage 
and rubbish disposal with which the department has 
had to contend for manj^ years, and I am sure that the 
erection of this plant will be of invaluable benefit to the 
City. . 

For man}' years the City has received complaints that 
the waters of Boston Harbor were being polluted by 
sewage discharged from its basins located at Moon 
Island. Considerable thought has been given to the^ 
matter, and it was finally decided that a sewage treat- 
ment plant should be constructed. The necessary con- 
tract for the preparation of plans was awarded some 
time ago, the preliminary design has been completed, 
and work is now in progress on the final design. The 
estimated cost of this plant is $4,000,000, and we are 
hopeful of obtaining, through the assistance of your 
Honor, federal funds to help defray the cost of the 
construction of this plant. It will be modern and 
up-to-date in every detail, and when completed will be 
of considerable benefit to the City of Boston in disposing 
of its sewage. 

The Dorchester and Hyde Park areas are the recipi- 
ents of projects for sewer construction which will be 
of benefit for the betterment of both districts. A 
contract has been awarded at an estimated cost of 
S200,000 for covering in and extending another section 
of Ston}^ Brook, and in Dorchester, Tenean Creek is 
being built in a covered conduit for a length of about 
1,000 feet from its present terminus at the New York, 
New Haven and Hartford Railroad, to Freeport street. 
The estimated cost of this work is $294,000. 

I am pleased to inform your Honor that through 
economies made in this department, it was possible 
during the 3'ear to furnish funds to other departments 
which ran short in their appropriations, and this was 
done without any curtailment in the activities of the 
Public "Works Department. Reports from the Divi- 
sion Engineers covering the operations of their divisions 
for the 3'ear are attached. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Robert P. Curley, 
Commissioner of Public Works.

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

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

Ferries. 
Ferry Boat '^Daniel A. MacCormack." 

Early in this year data was collected for the annual 
repairs to the hull and machinery of the ''Daniel A. 
MacCormack" so that the boat would again have the 
Federal Certificate to operate as soon as the papers of 
the "Ralph J. Palumbo, " then on the route, would expire. 

On April 17, when the bids were publicly opened and 
read, there was but one proposal to consider, that of the 
Bethlehem Shipbuilding Corporation. This bid was 
accepted and on May 22 a contract was entered into 
with the Bethlehem Shipbuilding Corporation, in the 
sum of $26,234. Work on the contract started on May 23, 
when the vessel was taken to the Atlantic Works. 

As the work progressed, it was soon noted that all of 
the necessarj' repairs to again place the boat in service 
were not covered in the terms of the contract which had 
been entered into; this condition became apparent as 
the various phases were uncovered as the terms of the 
contract were being fulfilled. While under the contract 
all repairs deemed necessary had been covered on tjhe hull 
and machiner}^, it was later found that further repairs to 
the main engines, auxiliaries and hull would be required 
to again put the boat in service and maintain it on the 
route for at least one year, all as required by the United 
States Coast Guard, Inspection Service. To cover ad- 
ditional work, when the necessity appeared, an extra 
work order, dated June 27, was written in the sum of 
$2,332. 



22 City Document No. 24. 

While every effort was made to complete the contract 
in due time, there were apparently some needless delays 
which required the City, in order to maintain the ferry 
service, to applj^ for an extension of the ''papers" of the 
"Ralph J. Palumbo" for a period of one week, otherwise 
the service would be stopped until the "Daniel A. 
MacCormack" was again in proper condition to again 
go on the route. Under the circumstances, the extension 
was granted and on July 30, as soon as the work was 
completed, the vessel began operating on the route. 

AH work under the contract, including the additional 
work as noted, was completed at a cost of $31,682.69.

A contract was awarded to Roy B. Rendle & Co., 
Inc., for repairing the fenders of the South Ferry on 
October 8, 1946.

During the year machinists, carpenters, painters,

machinery on the boats, repairs to ferry bridge machin- 
ery^, ferry bridge roadways and headhouse repairs in 
general.

Repairs to Control Wiring and Control Cables at the

A contract was awarded to the Massachusetts Electric 
Construction Co., Inc., for removing and reconnecting 
the cable connections in the Boston and East Boston 
Distribution Cabinets and renewing other cables in the 
Sumner Tunnel on April 22, 1946. 



Public Works Department. 23 

Work commenced April 22, 1946, and after the Boston 
Distribution Cabinet had been removed the City found 
it was impossible to get delivery on new cable to complete 
the work, so that the contract was terminated on March 
21, 1946, at a cost of $700. 

Painting, etc., at the Sumner Tunnel and Administration 

Building. 

A contract was awarded to John D. Ahern for painting 
the exterior and interior of the Administration Building,

+ Including two military leaves. 



The 1946 expenditures and costs show a net increase 
over those of last year amounting to $194,245.07. 

There were increases in the various accounts as 
follows: Waste contract collection, $190,665.98. This 



Public Works Department. 45 

was occasioned by a general increase in the prices of the 
contracts amounting to about $87,000, and a special 
increase in the Brighton district of $63,000 for the nine 
months during which it was necessary for the Brighton 
waste material to be hauled to the Mile Road dump in 
South Boston. 

There was also an increase in the disposal contract 
amounting to $49,000, a part of which, however, must 
be charged to the day labor expenditures, and $12,000 
charged to the Brighton district. 

There was an increase of $120,524.02 in the street 
cleaning force expenditures, due to the transfer of men 
to this service from the day labor sanitary service, 
and the creation of a new district. 

Decreases were shown in the day labor waste collection 
service which amounted to a net decrease of $45,874.07. 

This reduction reflected two things: (a) a drop in 
the motor cleaning account from $136,391.87 in 1945 
to $89,864.42 in 1946, or a net drop, on account of having 
more repair work done in the municipal garage, amount- 
ing to $46,527.44; (b) an actual drop in the personal 
service account in the three day-labor waste collection 
districts amounting to $15,193.19. 

Other decreases were as follows: The paper salvage 
drive which in 1945 accounted for $40,204.29, does 
not appear this year. A preventive street-cleaning 
item shows a drop of $18,488.48, and the cost of the 
clean-up in 1946 was $16,264.56 less than this cost 
for 1945. 

Among the various activities of this division during 
the year of 1946 were the following: 

On account of the shutting down of the Watertown 
dump, it was necessary to transport the Brighton 
refuse to a city-owned dump on Mt. Vernon street, 
and after this dump was closed by order of the Health 
Department, to a dump owned by Coleman Disposal 
Company, for the use of which the city paid $3,000 
a month. The original Brighton district contract, 
with dumping privileges in Watertown, was at the 
rate of $10,000 a month, for the first three months of 
the year. Since the necessity of hauling to South 
Boston, the price was increased to $17,000 a month. 

The construction of an incinerator in the Brighton 
district was provided for by a loan of $200,000, and 
borings were made at the proposed site at the City Yard 
on Western avenue. 



4G City Document No. 24. 

Extensive repairs were made at the Albany Street 
Disposal Station, which was in a dangerous condition. 

At the Ward Street Sand Hopper Station, repairs 
were made to the windows, and a door installed; also, 
structural work underneath the ramp. 

An equipment loan was authorized, which was in- 
tended to be used to replace all the motor vehicle 
equipment in the Sanitary and other divisions of the 
Public Works Department, but onl}^ a small part of 
this equipment was received during 1946. 

On August 21, 1946, a new street-cleaning district 
was created in the Jamaica Plain area, which was 
formerly taken care of by the Paving Service of the 
Highway Division. 

A spring clean-up drive was conducted, which lasted 
about four weeks, and was accomplished in an unusually 
efficient manner by the use of hired trucks and men as 
well as the regular city forces and equipment. 

The work of the Sanitary Division, in cleaning up 
the streets after the Veterans of Foreign Wars parade 
on September 5, was praised and editorially commented 
upon by the Boston newspapers. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Adolph J. Post. 

Division Engineer.

APPENDIX D. 



REPORT OF THE DIVISION ENGINEER 
OF THE SEWER DIVISION. 



Boston, January 2, 1947. 

To the Commissioner of Public Works. 

Dear Sir, — I submit herewith statement of the ac- 
tivities and expenditures of the Sewer Division for the 
j^ear ending December 31, 1946. 

During the fiscal year 1946, there were built by con- 
tractors and day labor 3.54 miles of common sewers 
and surface drains throughout the city. After deduct- 
ing 0.02 miles of sewers and surface drains, rebuilt or 
abandoned, the net increase for 1946 is 3.52 miles, 
which, added to the existing 1,223.52 miles of common 
sewers and surface drains and 30.93 miles of intercept- 
ing sewers, makes a grand total of 1,257.97 miles of all 
sewers belonging to the City of Boston, and under the 
care of the Sewer Division on January 1, 1947. 

There were 107 catch-basins built or rebuilt and 52 
abandoned or removed during the year, making a net 
gain of 55 catch-basins and a grand total of 22,689 
catch-basins under the care of the Sewer Division on 
January 1, 1947. 

Entrance fees to the amount of $3,647.04 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. 

663 permits have been issued, viz.: 270 to district 
foremen and contractors and 393 to drainlayers for re- 
pairing or laying new house drains. Inspectors from 
this office have personally inspected the work done 
under these drainlayers' permits. 

2,965 complaints have been investigated, and inspec- 
tors are instructed to report in writing in each case. 

1,467 catch-basin complaints were received. 



Public Works Department. 53 

Reported in writing on 2,817 municipal liens to the 
City Collector, in accordance with chapter 60, section 
25, of the General Laws. Reported orally on about 
2,600 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 1946, 3,047 catch-basins were cleaned 
by day labor and 2,460 catch-basins were cleaned by 
contract. 



Respectfully, 



Robert P. Shea, 

Division Engineer.

APPENDIX E. 

REPORT OF THE DIVISION ENGINEER OF 
THE WATER DIVISION. 



Boston, January 2, 1947. 

To the Commissioner of Public Works. 

Dear Sir, — I respectfully submit the following 
report of the activities, operations and expenditures 
of the Water Division for the year ending December 31, 
1946. 

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. 

A total of 15,540 linear feet of pipe were either laid 
or relaid, varying in sizes from 3-inch to 16-inch, in- 
clusive, as follows: 

LAID RELAID 

Linear Feet Linear Feet 

City Proper 140 225 

South Boston 
Dorchester . 
Brighton 
West Roxbury 
Hyde Park . 

Total . 

The particular streets in which the above work was 
performed are shown on the accompanjang tables. 

Distribution Branch. 

Due to the decrease in personnel, and the diflEiculty 
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 regular work of this l)ranch, 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 appUcants for 
water, water 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. 

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 j-et 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 1946 with a surplus of 
$2,474,292.38, this surplus being due mainly to the 
collection of bills past due, and a decrease in the Metro- 
politan assessment for the year 1946.

Public Works Department. 77 

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 appre- 
ciation of the customers is shown by the fact that the 
number of liens placed on premises this year has been 
reduced. 

Respectfully submitted, 

D. M. Sullivan, 
Division Engineer.
