ANNUAL REPORT 

OF THE 

PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT 

FOR THE 
YEAR ENDING DECEMBER 31, 1947. 



Boston, January 2, 1948. 

Hon. James M. Curley, 
Mayor of Boston. 
Dear Mr. Mayor: 

In compliance with the provisions of section 36 of 
chapter 28 of the Revised Ordinances of 1947, I respect- 
fully submit the Annual Report of the Public Works 
Department for the year ending December 31, 1947. 

Upon the request of this department and with the 
approval of 3'our Honor the Mayor, the City Council 
made an appropriation for $2,000,000 for the construc- 
tion and reconstruction of streets. All sections of the 
City benefited by the work that was done, and the 
program w^hich we have started will be continued in 
1948. 

The larger number of the contracts which were 
awarded were completed^ and on several the work had 
to be suspended because of the approach of cold weather. 
This work will be resumed as soon as weather condi- 
tions permit in the spring. 

The matter of expediting traffic on our main highways 
has been given considerable attention, and many 
improvements have been made by cutting down wide 
sidewalks and widening the roadways, thereby per- 






2 City Document No. 24. 

mitting an easier flow of traffic. Among the improve- 
ments of this nature was the reconstruction of Summer 
street at the South Station, from Atlantic avenue to 
Dorchester avenue, where the sidewalks were narrowed, 
and with the cooperation of the Metropolitan Transit 
Authority a new loading area for streetcars was pro- 
vided. This will help considerably in alleviating a 
traffic hazard at this important point. 

Another notable improvement was the reconstruction 
of Columbus avenue. Some sections of this street have 
been completed, and the installation of a center divisional 
island has helped very much in improving traffic con- 
ditions. Another section of this street is now under 
contract for similar treatment, namely, from Northamp- 
ton street in town to Arlington street. Columbus 
avenue is a direct route in and out of Boston, from Park 
square to Egleston square, in Roxbury, and the im- 
provement thus brought about will aid traffic entering 
and leaving the City in this section. 

The surfaces of many of our streets in all sections of 
the City have become worn through use, but their 
condition was such that a complete reconstruction of 
the roadways was not necessary. This year, for the 
first time in many years, we adopted a program of 
laying a seal coat on top of the existing surface, which 
will extend the life of these streets for a period of eight 
or ten years. The program which has been set up will 
be continued in 1948, so that macadam streets will be 
given a renewal of life periodically. 

During the year this department has installed thou- 
sands of yards of asphalt sidewalks. From an eco- 
nomical point of view, it was to the City's advantage 
to do this work because of the prohibitive cost of laying 
concrete sidewalks. This type of sidewalk, usually 
called black top, is equal in all respects to concrete, and 
a suitable wearing surface will be provided for years of 
use. 

Due to war conditions, it was not possible for the 
department to replace completely concrete sidewalks 
where openings had been made by the Water Division 
for installations and repairs. This year we have con- 
centrated on the matter of permanently replacing these 
sidewalk openings, and the results attained have been 
gratifying, with the result that, in a good many cases, 
the City has saved itself from possible suits because of 
personal injuries received. 



Public Works Department. 3 

The wooden surfaces on many of our drawbridges 
have through the course of years outUved their useful- 
ness, and a new program of replacing the wooden bridge 
decking with asphalt has been inaugurated. This 
asphalt will require less maintenance than the wooden 
surface, and the life of the roadway will thereby be 
prolonged for many years. 

On many of our bridges the wooden curbings installed 
for years have become dilapidated and unsightly in 
appearance. As fast as we can do this we are removing 
these curbings and installing modern concrete curbs, in 
accordance with a design prepared in this department. 
This new type of curb is substantial and not only will 
it add to the appearance of our bridges, but will assist 
materially in reducing accidents and calamities on our 
bridges. 

The garage facilities of this department have been 
modernized, and our equipment for the purpose of 
making repairs is second to none in the country. 
Thousands of dollars have been saved to the City in 
work done in our own shop, and these savings have 
been accomplished without any increase in personnel. 

With the money made available by your Honor in the 
so-called Equipment Loan, all mobile equipment of the 
Public Works Department has been renewed. Many 
new units have been received and are already in 
service, and manj- are now on their way and about to be 
delivered. When this program is consummated, the 
Public Works Department will have been completely 
outfitted with automotive units. 

Plastic globes have been developed for street lighting 
purposes. In many sections of the City the cost of 
replacing broken glass globes was increasing to such 
heights that it was becoming difficult for the department 
to keep up with the demand for replacements. New 
plastic globes have been installed in many locations and 
their services have been entirely satisfactory, with a 
reduction reflected in maintenance costs. 

It has long been the opinion of this department that 
incinerators should be constructed in various locations 
where dumps were objected to or otherwise unavailable. 

All our attempts to obtain dump locations were 
strenuously resisted in each locality. Plans and speci- 
fications were prepared for the construction of an 
incinerator and, although a suitable site was selected, 
and funds were provided, the project was abandoned 



4 City Document No. 24. 

because of zoning restrictions. The funds for an 
incinerator are still available, and these plans and 
specifications that were prepared have been so drawn 
that the}^ can be used at any location selected. 

We are still hopefully seeking locations in all districts 
of the City for incinerators, as well as sites for sanitary 
fills, which will obviate the usual objections to common 
dumps. 

For many years the department has been confronted 
with a problem in the South End, This relates to the 
disposal of rubbish, particularly from the rooming- 
house sections. No facilities were available for dis- 
posing of small bundles of rubbish, with the result that 
in many cases they were deposited in the streets and in 
the alleys of that section. We have made a start on 
correcting and improving the conditions in the South 
End by the installation of boxes, so placed as to be 
easily accessible for the deposit of rubbish. The 
improvement shown has justified the action of the City 
in making these installations. 

Another problem that has faced the department for 
years is the condition existing in the market district, 
following the close of business on Saturday nights. 
Rubbish was thrown into the streets indiscriminately 
and it was only with great expense and effort that this 
department was able to clean up the conditions which 
existed. We have made much progress along this line, 
and I am pleased to state that at the present time 
conditions in the market district are better than they 
ever were before. 

The flow of traffic through the Sumner Tunnel has 
continued without letup, and this year it is expected 
that the revenue received from tolls will show an excess 
of approximately $500,000 over expenditures. 

The Water Division has continued to exert every 
effort possible to bring in revenue for the use of water, 
and from present indications the department will wind 
up the year with a surplus of receipts over expenditures 
of close to a million dollars. This is a very creditable 
record and reflects the activities of the Water Division, 

There has been put into effect in the Public Works 
Department a requirement that all new employees 
entering the service of the department must have a 
physical examination by the department doctor and 
must have an X ray made of their chests at the City 
Hospital. The purpose of this is to insure that men 



Public Works Department. 5 

entering our employ are not incapacitated from doing 
the work which they will be required to do. These 
examinations have revealed that the condition of several 
individuals was such that their employment with this 
department would not be desirable, and the results 
obtained by this new requirement have been very 
satisfactory in all respects. 

Beginning with the first of the coming year, a new 
contract district will be estabUshed in the section of 
Roxbury and the South End approximately from Rox- 
bury Crossing to Massachusetts avenue. One of the 
terms of the contract is that collections are to be made 
twice a week. At the present time, at least two col- 
lections a week are being made in the sections of the 
City where the service is still rendered by City 
employees. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Robert P. Curley, 
Commissioner of Public Works. 



6 City Document No. 24.

APPENDIX C. 



REPORT OF THE DIVISION ENGINEER 
OF THE SANITARY DIVISION. 



Boston, January 2, 1948. 

Mr. Robert P. Curley, 

Commissioner of Public Works. 
Dear Sir:

expenditures of the Sanitary Division of the Public 
Works Department for the year ending December 31,

1,004

— 83 

Personnel total January 1, 1948 * 921 

* Including two military leaves of absence. Net loss of fourteen employees. 

Increases and Decreases. — The increase in the 1947 
expenditures over those of the year 1946 amounted to 
$696,221.70, and in the main may be accounted for as 
follows : 



Public Works Department. 45 

The salaries and wages of employees were increased, 
in most cases, by $200 per year, and Emergency Com- 
pensation Allotments were made permanent, S358,118. 

An 18 per cent increase in the waste collection con- 
tract prices, $255,838. In the case of the disposal con- 
tract, besides this 18 per cent increase, it was necessary 
to provide, in 1947, for the reception of material for 
disposal from the Brighton district for the whole 3^ear, 
$98,520. This was done for only four months in 1946. 

It is interesting to note that there were decreases in 
the following items: hire, labor, and purchase of motor 
vehicles; there was no temporary labor employed during 
the 3^ear 1947, as there had been in 1946. The total 
decreases in these items amount to $56,680. 

Incinerator. — Plans were drawn and an appropriation 
was made for a 120-ton incinerator on land belong- 
ing to the City of Boston at Soldiers Field road and 
Everett street in the Brighton district. However, it 
was necessary to have the zoning regulations changed 
in order to permit this construction. Accordingly, hear- 
ings were held before the Board of Appeal. The City's 
petition was opposed by various commercial interests 
as well as certain private residents, and on August 27 
the Board of Appeal dismissed the petition and refused 
to make the necessary change in the zoning regulations. 
Therefore, the incinerator project was abandoned. 

On January 1, 1947, the new price of 20 cents each for 
commercial waste tickets was put into effect, as provided 
by city ordinance. 

On March 26, 1947, two new street-cleaning districts 
were created in the Brighton and Hyde Park areas, which 
were formerly taken care of by the Paving Service of the 
Highway Division, 

On September 1, 1947, the headquarters of the South 
Boston Sanitary and Street-Cleaning districts were 
transferred from South Boston to the Albany Street 
Yard. 

It seems fitting to mention here the retirement on 
July 31, 1947, of Peter F. Gerrity, supervisor of the 
Sanitary Division for seventeen years, and an employee 
of the City for forty-five years. At his retirement, the 
City lost a faithful servant. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Adolph J. Post, 

Division Engineer.

APPENDIX D. 



REPORT OF THE DIVISION ENGINEER 
OF THE SEWER DIVISION. 



Boston, January 2, 1948. 

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, 1947. 

During the fiscal year 1947 there were built by 
contractors and day labor 7.46 miles of common sewers 
and surface drains throughout the cit}^ After deduct- 
ing 0.06 miles of sewers and surface drains, rebuilt or 
abandoned, the net increase for 1947 is 7.40 miles, 
which, added to the existing 1,227.04 miles of common 
sewers and surface drains and 30.93 miles of intercept- 
ing sewers, makes a grand total of 1,265.37 miles of all 
sewers belonging to the City of Boston, and under the 
care of the Sewer Division on January 1, 1948. 

There were 159 catch-basins built or rebuilt and 12 
abandoned or removed during the year, making a net 
gain of 147 catch-basins and a grand total of 22,836 
catch-basins under the care of the Sewer Division on 
January 1, 1948. 

Entrance fees to the amount of $2,463.99 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. 

956 permits have been issued, viz.: 247 to district 
foremen and contractors and 609 to drainlayers for 
repairing or laying new house drains. Inspectors from 
this office have personally inspected the work done 
under these drainlayers' permits. 

2,898 complaints have been investigated and inspec- 
tors are instructed to report in writing in each case. 

1,500 catch-basin complaints were received. 



Public Works Department. 53 

Reported in writing on 2,292 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 of 1925, chapter 27, section 8, 
apprising them of the construction of new sewers or 
repairs to old sewers. 

During the year 1947, 1,527 catch-basins were 
cleaned by day labor and 2,744 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, 1948. 

To the Commissioner of Public Works. 
Dear Sir: 

I respectfully submit the following report of the 
activities of the Water Division, operations and expen- 
ditures for the fiscal year ending December 31, 1947. 

The work of laying and relaying water mains, and the 
replacement of obsolete meters, etc., has been consider- 
ably curtailed due to the critical shortages of water 
pipes, fittings and meters. 

A total of 16,176 linear feet of pipe were either laid or 
relaid, varying in sizes from 3-inch to 16-inch, inclusive, 
as follows: 

City Proper 
South Boston 
Dorchester

The particular streets in which the abov^e work was 
performed are shown on the accompanying tables. 

Distribution Branch. 

Due to the increased volume of work caused by 
applications for service pipes, etc., the department has 
engaged the services of contractors during the year. 

The regular work of this branch, consisting of instal- 
lation 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 performed 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. 



Public Works Department. 



79 



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 performing 
special jobs. 

Business Office. 

In order to enforce the payment of outstanding water 
bills, 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, the Water Division 
ended the year 1947 with a surplus of $1,456,541.81, 
this surplus being due mainly to the collection of bills 
due and payable. 



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

80 City Do qment No. 24. 

This department contacts the water consumer^, .» 
frequently throughout the year, and the conduct of ,i:. 
t-flpce has been such that I believe a spirit of good will 
I '^lyrecn the customers and the employees has bet : 
). tight aboL.t which is beneficial to the consumer^'^ai).; 
tL f Ity. 

- ^'-t^ issuance of statements of outstanding water b 
to thej consumers has been continued. The appreciati- 
of the customers is shown by the fact that the numb 
of lie: placed on premises this year has been rec^y,b>^4«.. -
