REPORT OF THE BOARD OF WATER 
COMMISSIONERS 



To the Honorable Mayor and Board of Aldermen : 

The Board of Water Commissioners take pleasure in 
calling to the attention of the citizens of Concord the 
report of the Superintendent, Percy R. Sanders, giving in 
detail the various activities in connection with carrying on 
the Water Works of the City. The said report includes a 
very clear statement of the work done and of the amount 
of money received and how said money received was dis- 
bursed, showing a very comfortable balance to be brought 
forward for next year, 1932, amounting to $45,453.97. 

The successful completion of the well field in North 
Pembroke, consisting of one hundred and fifty wells, with 
the erection of the pumping station and installation of 
equipment, marks the year 1931 as a very important one 
in the historj^ of the Water Works, established sixty years 
ago. 

The Board of Water Commissioners feel that with the 
completion of the additional water supply, our present 
water system will take care of the needs of the City for 
many years to come. 

The Board of Water Commissioners feel justified in 
mentioning that Metcalf & Eddy, engineers employed by 
the City, together with Superintendent Sanders, deserve 
our favorable commendation for the results obtained and at 
a very reasonable cost to the City. 

Respectfully submitted. 

For the Board of Water Commissioners 
duly authorized. 

HARRY H. DUDLEY, 

President.

Very little has been done during the year on distribution 
lines or other construction. The program of relaying 
Penacook has been postponed but will be resumed as 
planned later. 

The construction and completion of the auxiliary driven 
well supply in the town of Pembroke bordering the Sou- 
cook River has made the year one of the most important in 
the history of the works. In the 1930 report a state- 
ment was given showing why it was absolutely necessary 
to procure an additional supply together with the investi- 
gations made and results obtained which gave the Board 
confidence to construct a driven well system in the locality 
recommended by Metcalf & Eddy in their report sub- 
mitted in 1927. 

This supply is located in the town of Pembroke on the 
east side of the Soucook River and north of the North 
Pembroke Road. The Soucook River is a tributary of 
the Merrimack which has for its head waters Loon and 
Shellcamp Ponds in Gilmanton, Rocky and Shaker Ponds 
in Canterbury, and Clough and Crooked Ponds in Loudon. 
The area of the watershed above the plant is approxi- 
mately 82.6 square miles and comprises sections of the 
towns of Belmont, Gilmanton, Northfield, Canterbury, 
Loudon, Pembroke, Chichester and Concord. 



46 CITY OF CONCORD 

"Work was started driving the wells November 10, 1930, 
and was continued through the winter together with laying 
the suction lines. By February 7, 1931, one hundred wells 
had been driven and connected. A temporary station was 
built and pumping was started from the system February 
9, 1931, ninety-one days from the start. 

These wells consist of 2V2-iiich black wrought iron pipe 
with a Cook No. 30 lead packed top strainer six feet long; 
top of strainer placed at least 20 feet below ground water 
level. The average depth of wells is 38.58 feet from sur- 
face of ground. 

Each well is connected to the mains with 2i/2-inch wrought 
iron cement lined pipe with a 2i/'2-inch valve and connection 
between well and main. 

The pump in the .temporary station was a used 750 G. P. M. 
2-stage Worthington Underwriters Centrifugal fire pump, 
driven by a 75 H. P. G. E. slip ring motor with a 5'-6" x 
8'-0'"' sand and vacuum chamber. A Nash Hytor vacuum 
pump was used to prime the pump. This pump delivered 
an average of 750,000 gallons daily into the High Service 
system until September 29, 1931 when it was dismantled. 

Plans were made for the new pumping station and equip- 
ment, also layout for the well field by Metcalf & Eddy and 
approved by the Water Board. 

The plant consisting of station with pump room, electric 
bay, office, heater room and lavatory, and a three stall garage 
with work shop was built by the Norquist Construction Com- 
pany, Inc., who started work April 1, 1931. 

The pumping equipment, the contract for which was 
awarded to Starkweather & Broadhurst, Inc., consists of 
three units, two of which are 2-stage Morris Centrifugal 
pumps, 6-inch suction, 6-inch discharge, connected in series, 
driven by Westinghouse 125 H. P. motors at a speed of 
1740 R. P. ]\I. ; capacity of each unit 1145 gallons per minute 
with suction lift of 15 feet and discharge head 286 feet at 
an overall efficiency of 69.7%. 



WATER DEPARTMENT 47 

The third unit is a 3-stage Morris Centrifugal pump con- 
nected in series, driven by a 175 H. P. Sterling Dolphin 
gas engine, 1200 R. P. M., 1145 gallons per minute. 

The vacuum and priming system consists of a vertical 
vacuum and sand chamber, 6 feet in diameter and 12 feet 
high with two sets of 24-inch gage glasses and controls. 
These controls are four float operated pilot switches as- 
sembled in cast iron float chambers to operate on rise and 
fall of water in tank. 

The priming pumps are two Nash Vacuum Hytor pumps, 
bronze fitted, each with a capacity of 23 cubic feet of air at 
a vacuum of 10 inches, and SYo cubic feet at 20 inches. 

These priming units can be operated singly or together 
as occasion requires. 

The building was so far completed with installation of 
equipment that pumping was started September 29, 1931 
and has been operated continuously since that time with 
the exception of a week or ten days when the pumps were 
shut down to be painted. 

The pumps are operated alternately and the gas pump 
once a week for a period of an hour. 

The station is run on three shifts of eight hours each. 
All the water for the High Service is now being pumped 
from this plant, averaging 1,060,000 gallons daily on a 
161/^ hours run. Since pumping from the wells we have 
drawn, to December 31, 1931, 256 million gallons of water 
from them, equal in depth to 2^2 feet on Penacook Lake. 

Early in the year it was decided to drive 50 additional 
wells, making 150 in all. Work was started on these June 2 
and completed July 2, 1931. Two drilling outfits were used 
in all the driving. All the construction with the exception 
of the building and installation of pumps was done by the 
"Water Works employees. 

The plumbing and heating were installed by Orr & Rolfe 
Co., and the power wiring by the Reliable Wiring Co. The 



48 CITY OF CONCORD 

following comment is made by the New Hampshire Board 
of Fire Underwriters, "The electrical equipment is one of 
which any community may well be proud." 

The City purchased approximately 95.5 acres of land, 
55.5 acres on the Pembroke side of the river and 40 acres 
on the Concord side of the river. The well field comprises 
an area approximately 1680 feet long and 720 feet wide, 
27.76 acres. This averages 8000 sq. ft. for each well. A 
road has been built from the North Pembroke Road to the 
plant so that it is easily reached.

Penaeook Lake has continued at a low stage during the 
year, the lowest level being reached March 6, 173.70, 11.3 
feet below the overflow and 4.2 feet above the intake; the 
highest level was reached June 8, 177.90 a rise of 4.2, 7.1 
feet below the overflow and 7.1 feet above the intake. The 
average height for 1931 was 175.95, 2.4 feet lower than for 
1930. The height of water January 1, 1932 was 176.70 a 
rise of 1 foot since December 12. 

The drop in the Lake in 1930 was 6.9 feet and in 1931 2.2. 
The value of the new plant is shown by these figures as 
otherwise we should have been dangerously near if not below 
the intake. 

On December 17, 1930, the gates between the Penaeook 
and Boscawen Water Works and Concord system were 
opened and water was purchased from them at the rate of 
approximately 150,000 gallons daily supplying Penaeook 
and West Concord to the north side of Hutchins Street 
until August 9, when the gates were closed. 

It has not been necessary at any time to curtail con- 
sumers on the use of water, the only restrictions imposed 
were on flushing streets and flooding skating rinks. 

Analyses of the water from the wells so far have shown 
such slight traces of iron as to be negligible. With most 
driven well systems throughout New England presence of 
iron has caused a great deal of trouble and it has been nec- 
essary to resort to aeration, coke filtration and sand filtra- 
tion to free the water of its iron content. The following 
analyses of Penaeook Lake and the Pembroke wells water as 
given by the New Hampshire State Board of Health are 
given to show the comparison.

Report of Chief Engineer. 
To the Board of Mayor and Aldermen: 

In accordance with the requirements of the City Ordi- 
nance, I herewith submit for your consideration the report 
of the Fire Department for the year 1931. 

The department responded to 91 bell alarms and 436 
still alarms.

While the number of alarms for the year was approxi- 
mately one hundred less than the nmnber for the preceding 
year, the loss was far more. 

The Shapiro fire January 12th and the Nardini fire Nov- 
ember 14th contributed within $1,309.00 of one-half of the 
entire loss for the year. 

The apparatus, in the main, is in good condition. The 
last of the precinct steam fire engines was condemned and 
sold. 

Two of the remaining horse drawn hose wagons were also 
sold. 

An Ahrens-Fox 750 gallon combination pumping engine 
and hose car was added to the equipment, also one thousand 
feet of hose. 



60 



CITY OP CONCORD 



The Fire Alarm System is in good condition. 

All repairs were attended to as required and eight new 
boxes purchased from the appropriation for the preceding 
year, were installed. 

A few localities still exist in which fire protection can be 
improved by the installation of boxes. 

The overhead parallel lines from the city sheds to St. 
Paul 's School were replaced by overhead cable. 

I respectfully recommend the purchase of one thousand 
feet of hose during the present year. 

It is with extreme regret that I report the loss, by death, 
to this Department, of three valuable men during the year. 

For the privilege afforded me of attending the convention 
of the International Fire Chiefs held at Havana, Cuba, 
during October a report of which was rendered at that time, 
I wish to return my sincere thanks. 

Respectfully submitted, 

W. C. GREEN, 

Chief Engineer.

Plains, 

St. Paul's School, 

Total, 

Our regular employees of this department have been: 
William H. Murphy, foreman; Richard Morrill, James J. 
Berryman and Wilbur Kendall, assistant foremen, all of 
whom have been of great assistance to the department. 

Street Lights 

During the year there were installed electric street lights 
as follows : 1-200 c. p. ; 5-60 c. p. ; 2-40 c. p. ; making the 
total number of lights in operation December 31, 1931,

Bridge Bond 

Appropriation balance, Jan. 1, 1931, $10,637.76 

Expended, 10,637.76 

The expenditures under this account were for work on 
the cement bridge over the Boston & Maine Railroad, Bridge 
Street, two bridges on Clinton Street, one on the Hooksett 
Turnpike, one on the Birchdale Road and one on the Hop- 
kinton new road.

Trees 

Receipts, 1,117.09 

Appropriation, $6,000.00 



$7,117.09 
Expended, 7,110.43 



Balance, $6.66 

The care of trees is handled by forces under Foreman J. 
Henry Jordan. The work involved has been the removing 
of dead trees and branches, and the removing of brown tail 
and gypsy moths from the trees in the streets and on private 
property. The work on private land was charged to the 
OM^ner, and it is evident from the number of complaints as 
to the cost of removing these pests on private property, that 
it would lead us to believe that the property owners should 
care for their own trees. 

Garbage Other than Table Garbage 

Appropriation, $35,000.00 

Receipts, 106.44 



$35,106.44 
Expended, ' 35,102.08 



Balance, $4.36 

This work is done by our regular forces, and our method 
of collecting seems to be satisfactory. 

Table Garbage 
Appropriation, $4,360.00 

Expended, 4,360.00 

The collection of table garbage is done by contract. Bert 
C. Holt has the contract for collection of the city proper 
at $4,C00 per year, and Eugene Vezina the contract for 
collection in Penacook at $360 per year.

PUBLIC LIBRARY 



Report op Trustees 

To the Mayor and Board of Aldermen : 

I have the honor to transmit Miss Blanchard's annual 
report of our city library's activities and expenses. 

The trustees welcome the addition to the Board of Mr. 
Woodbury E. Hunt, who represents Ward Four. 



Respectfully submitted, 

WILLIS D. THOMPSON, 

President of the Board of Trustees. 



REPORT OF THE CITY LIBRARIAN FOR 1931 



To the Board of Trustees of the Concord Pxiblic Library : 

Gentlemen : It is generally accepted as an instance of 
cause and effect that when times are dull, a public library- 
is well patronized. Certainly in the depressed 1931 this 
library had a record circulation, the largest in the thirty- 
seven 3'ears of which the present librarian has kept the 
count. 111,544 is a big figure for a small library, yet that 
is the number of volumes charged out at the circulation desk 
during the past twelve months. Add to that patronage the 
5,055 inquirers who came to the reference room and our 
business totals 116,599. 

But the fact that men and women have had an unusual 
number of unemployed hours has not been the sole cause of 
our gain of 13,328 in circulation. (It ought perhaps to be 
interpolated here that this increase w^as in the reading of 
fiction rather than non-fiction, but that is not surprising if 
people were desirous of cheering their thoughts. ) 

A prominent factor in rolling up these additional thou- 
sands has been the large, pleasant Branch Room in Fifield's 
store at Penacook, which has been a successful undertaking, 
and the Woman's Club of Penacook can congratulate itself 
that it was instrumental in bringing this Branch into exist- 
ence. On the Tuesday and Friday afternoons when it is 
open from 2:30 to 5 o'clock, 10,843 books were given out 
in 1931. Members of the Club and members of our staff 
alternate in tending the Branch and charging the volumes 
which the 530 registered borrowers in Ward 1 choose from 
the 1060 now on the ofTen shelves. These include many 
wanted by pupils using the Hartford Reading List and many 
new publications requested by adults who are engaged in 
the Congregational and Baptist Church R-eading Contests. 



84 CITY OF CONCORD 

East Concord continues to have a Deposit Station at 
Stuart's store. The West Concord Library has the efficient 
care of its founders, Rev. and Mrs. Franklin C. Thompson ; 
we loan it books and get the credit of their circulation. 

This is the case also v^dth several school-rooms which ask 
for helpful outside reading and which at the end of terms 
report to us how much it has been used. 

Emphasis may well be laid on the fact that the mounting 
quantity of work has to be done under hampering conditions ; 
ior example, it would facilitate our branch and school jobs 
and the collection of over-due books if an automobile were 
ever at our service ; and within the Library proper there is 
the drawback of countless interruptions ; for the small staff 
cannot be differentiated and the four assistants turn their 
hands to so many kinds of tasks that their pens and paste- 
brushes are generally arrested in mid-air as they jump to 
wait on a customer. 

The first thing Monday morning is to send out duns for 
the return of books kept over time, and last year 4000 of 
these reminder postals were written. 

To handle the larger business of 1931 a few more hun- 
dred dollars were spent and .^260. 00 in insurance policies 
became due, thus bringing the expenses of this City 
Department to $10,667.61. 

The different items are as follows : 

Salaries .$5,949.84 

Books and periodicals 2,029.53 

Binding 701.05 

Printing 127.45 

Fuel and light 858.95 

Incidentals 1,000.79 

The sum of $459 was received for fines from delinquent 
borrowers the past year. 



PUBLIC LIBRARY 85 

New borrowers registered to the number of 1,233 ; of 
these 475 were of school age. 

During 1931, 1,400 volumes were added to the accession 
book : 

Those purchased 1,255 

Gifts 98 

Bound magazines 47 

There were worn out and discarded 600 volumes ; net gain 
therefore was 800, and this brings the total number on the 
library 's shelves to 40,805. 

Miss Mary Dennett, who is the head and front of the 
Reference Department, has had her largest year of meet- 
ing rational and irrational inquiries. When debates are 
undertaken by school teams, every last item which may 
assist them is routed out by Miss Dennett, whose patience 
equals her thoroughness. 

The Vacation Reading Club was ably conducted for six 
summer weeks by Miss Ruth Melvin and Miss Marion Holt. 
It was rivaled by a Church Vacation School and therefore 
had about half the enrollment of 1930 ; but the boys and 
girls who read and reported upon recommended books 
were rewarded with diplomas, prizes and a closing party. 

A bulletin board has been added to our central room 
and Miss Josephine Brown will see to it that it bears not 
only items of literary value like reviews and pictures of 
authors but notices of general local interest such as the 
Currier Art Gallery exhibits, programs for George Wash- 
ington celebrations, etc., etc. Miss Brown's intelligent care 
extends itself also to securing the prompt arrival of our 
75 periodicals and to the impartial distribution of mate- 
rial among the various reading circles. 

Two library meetings in 1931 were of especial enjoy- 
ment. In June the American Library Association held a 
week's Conference in New Haven. I was fortunate 



86 CITY OF CONCORD 

enough to be quartered in the beautiful Harkness Quad- 
rangle. Yale's seven million library just completed gave 
the opening reception to the two thousand librarians in 
attendance. 

Last September our state association met in Hanover, 
and the new and old attractions of Dartmouth College 
were the background for our professional sessions. In 
this coming June New Hampshire is to be the hostess state 
to a regional meeting taking in New Hampshire and New 
Jersey. It will be held in the White Mountains, will be wide 
open to trustees — and hoping to meet you all there ! ! ! 

I am, respectfully, 

Grace Blanchard, 

City Lihrai^an.

KEPORT OF THE PARK COMMISSIONERS 



To the Mayor and Board of Aldermen: 

The city parks have been kept up to the usual standards. 
The stone wall on the High Street boundary of White Park 
was continued, and eventually the wall will be built the 
entire length of the park on High Street. 

At Rollins Park, the work of cleaning out the underbrush 
was continued, and the decayed tops of several pine trees 
were cut off. This removed a menace to the swimming pool 
during days of high winds. 

The collection of water fowl at White Park still continues 
a great attraction.

HEALTH DEPARTMENT 



Reports of the Sanitary Officer and Milk Inspector 



Mayor- Brown, Board of Health and Board of Aldermen : 

Gentlemen : The annual report and summary of the 
Health Department for 1931 is herewith submitted. 

The year just closed has been remarkably free from con- 
tagious diseases, fewer cases being reported than in many 
years past. The total number of deaths in the city were 
four hundred seventy-two : two hundred ninety-nine of 
these were in the institutions of the citj^, the majority of 
which were non-resident. 

The venereal disease clinic is held weekly under the super- 
vision of the State and local Boards of Health. Mrs. Ada 
Parsons assists Dr. Chancey Adams at the clinics and he 
reports several cases of long duration as being discharged. 

Since the toxin-anti-toxin clinics for the prevention of 
diphtheria have been held, Ave have inoculated nearly three 
thousand children and it is most gratifying to note that only 
one child of school age has been reported as having the 
disease and that one had not received the immunizing treat- 
ment. Dr. Charles H. Parsons has been in charge of this 
work being assisted by Mrs. Gladys Benson and Mrs. George- 
ana Mansur. We greatly appreciate their help and are 
indebted to the Concord District Nursing Association and 
to the School Board for their hearty co-operation and inter- 
est taken. 

Regular insj^ections of the alleyways about the city are 
made and a decided improvement shown. Nuisances and 
complaints have been investigated and abated. Twenty-five 



HEALTH DEPARTMENT 97 

cats and dogs which had died or had been killed and whose 
owners were nnknown were removed from streets or yards. 

I wish to express my thanks to the members of the Board 
of Health for their help and co-operation throughout the 
year. 

Kespectfully submitted, 

CHARLES E. PALMER, 

Sanitary Officer.

REPORT OP PLAYGROUNDS COMMITTEE 



Concord, N. H., December 31, 1931. 
To the Mayor and Board of Aldermen : 

The Committee on Public Playgrounds is glad to report 
a busy and useful season. Perhaps because of the current 
depression, more children than ever before have attended 
the various public playgrounds. To those children who 
are unable to leave the city during the summer season, these 
play areas are places of safety, handwork education, and 
constructive physical activities. 

Mr. Paul Crowell was elected director for a second year. 
He ably planned the program for the sixteen instructors. 
A special swimming instructor and life saver was in charge 
at the Soucook River Pool. 

Early in the season of 1931, a petition was received from 
interested baseball j^layers and fans in West Concord asking 
that a baseball diamond be laid out on the lot north of the 
cemetery. This petition was granted and this ballground 
has been satisfactory and popular. 

The old school building on the playground on the corner 
of West and South State Streets was, during the summer, 
almost a menace, but through the negotiations of this com- 
mittee it was demolished in the fall. As soon as weather 
permits the remaining concrete will be removed and the 
entire playground re-conditioned. 

Co-operating with a municipal civic beautification com- 
mittee, several hundred trees were planted on different areas 
by playground officials. 

The usual preparations for winter sports have been made. 
Not all petitions for sliding protected sections could pos- 
sibly be granted. A new venture, at White Park, is the 
cleaning of skating area by boys interested in skating. 
Through the co-operation of Police Officer Andrews, this 
has been a very happy and successful way of keeping ice in 



104 CITY OP CONCORD 

condition. A heated room, formerly a tool shed, has proved 
of great convenience to skaters. 

The committee has continued its supervision of the Chand- 
ler School. This building is used continuously by the Vet- 
erans of Foreign Wars and the Concord Girl Scouts. 

In these days of special economy, this committee has 
endeavored to fill the greatest playground needs under a 
small annual budget. The playground having the helpful 
co-operation of families in that particular section, is the most 
successful playground. So much might well be accom- 
plished, without the expenditure of the city's money, by 
those who fully appreciate the value of recreational fa- 
cilities. This committee wishes to stress the fact, that play- 
grounds belong to certain districts, but only as that same 
district feels its own responsibility in protecting city prop- 
erty can that playground be a thing of usefulness or of 
beauty. 

President Hoover sent the following message to the chil- 
dren of the playgrounds of this country : 

To the Boys and Girls of America -. 

Two and a half million of you are playing today in 
the playgrounds of nearly a thousand cities. Your 
elders rejoice with you in your fun and freckles, your 
sports and games and all that goes into making you 
happy and healthy boys and girls. Your zest in life 
is a precious possession and your laughter makes a 
joyous chorus throughout the land. 

Thousands of devoted men and women under the 
leadership of the National Recreation Association have 
labored for a quarter of a century to provide the play- 
grounds which you enjoy. We rejoice with you and 
with them in this boon to the boyhood and girlhood of 
our country. 

Yours faithfully, 

HERBERT HOOVER.

Special Funds invested and the income thereof for the
