FORMER SUPERINTENDENTS AND DOCUMENT 

NUMBERS OF ANNUAL REPORTS. 

(Page 174.) 



Hon. Patrick A. Collins, 

Mayor of the City of Boston : 

Sir, — In compliance with the Revised Ordinances, the 
annual report of the operations and expenses of the Street 
Department for the year 1902 is herewith respectfully sub- 
mitted. 

Organization. 

The work of the department during the past year has 
been carried on under the same organization that was effected 
when the consolidated department was created in 1891, and 
us amended in 1895, the several divisions of the depart- 
ment being as follows : 



Central Office. 

Boston and Cambridge 

Bridges. 
Bridge Division. 
Ferry Division. 



Paving Division. 
Sanitary Division. 
Sewer Division. 
Street-Cleaning Division. 
Street- Watering Division. 



Each of the above divisions, with the exception of the 
Central Office and the Boston and Cambridge Bridges, is in 
charge of a Deputy Superintendent. 

The Boston and Cambridge bridges are managed by two 
commissioners, the Superintendent of Streets being the com- 
missioner for the City of Boston, the other commissioner 
.being appointed by the Mayor of the City of Cambridge. 



City Document No. 40. 



Appropriation s . 

The money assigned for Street Department work for the 
past year was made available under the following appropria- 
tions : 

First. — Maintenance : From income of the city raised by 
taxes. Previous to the commencement of the financial year, 
February 1, the department estimates of the amounts neces- 
sary for the proper maintenance of the various divisions are 
submitted to His Honor the Mayor, who makes such recom- 
mendation as he may deem proper to the City Council.

Street Department. 3 

merits.) Loans under this Act previous to 1901 were out- 
side the debt limit, but by chapter 199 of the Acts of 1901 
the city was empowered to borrow the money inside the debt 
limit. From this fund new streets, assessable on the abutting 
property, are built. The amount expended the past year was : 

Sewers 155,706 63 

Streets 97,489 98 



Total $153,196 61 

Fifth. — In 1895 an Act was passed by the Legislature, 
and amended in 1898, entitled " An Act to provide for the 
Laying-out and Construction of Certain Highways in the 
City of Boston " (commonly known as the Boulevard Act). 
(Chapter 334 of 1895; chapter 236 of 1898.) Loans under 
this Act are outside the debt limit. The amount expended 
this year was as follows : 

Streets $23,767 82 

Sixth. — In 1895 an Act was passed by the Legislature 
entitled " An Act relative to the establishment of a New 
Ferry Landing in the City of Boston." (Chapter 435.) 
Under this Act the loan is outside the debt limit. The 
amount expended this year was $10,639.71. 

Seventh. — In 1897 an Act was passed by the Legislature, 
entitled " An Act Relative to the Sewerage Works of the 
City of Boston." (Chapter 426.) Under this Act the loan 
is outside the debt limit. From this fund " Sewerage 
Works" are built. 

The amount expended the past year was . $1,145,141 25 

Eighth. — In 1900 an Act was passed by the Legislature 
and accepted by the City Council entitled "An Act Rela- 
tive to Laying-Out and Constructing Highways in the City 
of Boston." (Chapter 478.) Under this Act the loan is 
inside the debt limit. From this appropriation all street and 
sewerage works construction in highways laid out previous 
to July 17, 1900, may be built. 

The amount expended the past year was as follows : 

Sewer $139,408 83

4 City Document No. 40. 

Ninth. — In 1901 an Act was passed by the Legislature 
entitled " An Act Relative to Highways in the City of Bos- 
ton." (Chapter 199.) Under this Act the loan is inside the 
debt limit. From this appropriation street and sewerage 
works construction in "323" streets may be built. The 
amount thus expended the past year was :

From the moneys provided, as shown in the preceding 
schedule, the mainte nance force of the department has been 
permanently and constantly employed during the year, and 
large amounts of work have been performed by contract, as 
required by the provisions of many of the Acts providing 
loans for expenditure by this department. 

Specific features of the work are referred to under the 
headings which follow, and the work of the divisions is fully 
shown in the appendices attached to this report. 



Street Department. 



Dumps. 



The problem calling for immediate attention bj r this 
department to-day is that of suitable dumps, and, as the four 
largest divisions, Paving, Sanitary, Sewer, and Street-Clean- 
ing, are very materially affected, both as to the prosecution 
of work and the increase in expenditures caused by the 
scarcity of dumps, too much cannot be said on this point. 
Work on down-town streets is badly handicapped on account 
of the long hauls necessary to dispose of surplus excavations, 
both in the Paving and Sewer Divisions, as in some cases 
the surplus must be carted to East Boston, South Boston, 
and even Cambridge, thereby entailing a great expense. 

In the Sanitary Division, the collections north of Massa- 
chusetts avenue are hauled partly to the dumping scow at 
Fort Hill Wharf, and those of Charlestown and part of the 
North and West Ends to Cambridge, where a charge for 
dumping is made aggregating something like $2,000 per year. 

The Street-Cleaning Division finds it very difficult to dis- 
pose of street sweepings, as there are practically no available 
dumping places. 

A remedy for this condition of affairs would be the plac- 
ing of a dumping scow at the foot of Charles River avenue, 
and another at the South End yard, Albany street. 

If a suitable site for a Street Department yard for the two 
last named divisions could be procured and a plant estab- 
lished, the cost of collection and disposal of ashes, street 
dirt and offal in the Dorchester district could be mate- 
rially reduced and much better service rendered the district. 
A dumping wharf and scow should be located in East Boston 
and Dorchester, in order to deliver the offal of these districts 
to the New England Sanitary Product Company, under con- 
tract with the city, for the final disposition of the offal of 
these districts. 

Snow. 

I desire to call your attention to the necessity of providing 
a separate appropriation for the removal of snow. 

This work cannot be classed as a part of the maintenance 
work of this department ; it is rather a special task, and the 
cost of performing it is dependent entirely on the weather. 

The cost the past year was something like -$175,000, and 
was paid for from the maintenance appropriations of the 
Paving and Street-Cleaning Divisions. 

An appropriation could wisely be made for this work, and 
the unexpended balance transferred to any other purpose at 
the end of the year. 



City Document No. 40. 



Bituminous Macadam. 



About 9,600 square yards of this surfacing have been laid 
both on level streets and streets with steeper grades, and has, 
so far, given excellent satisfaction. It is less slippery than 
asphalt, is easily cleaned and kept clean, and has been peti- 
tioned for by many owners and occupants of houses in the 
residential streets. 

Team owners and drivers prefer it to asphalt, and on 
grades varying from 1 to 12 per cent., where it has been laid, 
no fault has been found. 

Street Openings. 

The department has taken a decided stand against granting 
permits to open for any purpose newly paved or re-surfaced 
streets, and, except in cases of the most urgent necessity, no 
permits have been granted, and then only on condition that the 
work be replaced by a competent contractor under bond with 
this department, the expense of the work being borne by the 
party making the opening. This course, properly pursued, I 
believe, w r ill lead to a better condition of our street surfaces, 
and will add much to the looks and much-sought-for cleanly 
condition of our thoroughfares. 

Street Litter. 

The carelessness of the general public adds much to the 
labor of keeping our streets in presentable condition, and if 
the ordinances governing the throwing of paper, etc., into 
our streets and public alleys could be enforced to the extent 
of prosecuting habitual offenders, the people at large would 
be awakened to a sense of their duty. 

The passing of handbills, pamphlets, etc., by itinerant 
venders has been practically stopped, and if the throwing into 
the streets of newspapers and fruit parings and sweepings of 
store dirt and house dirt, could be remedied, the good effect 
would be immediately appreciated by all. 

Boston and Cambridge Bridges. 

To my fellow commissioner, Mr. W. J. Marvin of Cam- 
bridge, has fallen the greater part of the work of supervising 
the conduct of these bridges, and too much credit cannot be 
given him for his economical administration and attention to 
the duties imposed by statute.

$16-4,082.13. 111,917.10. 

The Shawmut-avenue bridge, over the Boston & Albany 
and New York, New Haven & Hartford Railroads, should be 
entirely rebuilt at as early a date as possible, in the opinion 
of the City Engineer. Further repairs are useless, and, as 
this is one of the main thoroughfares leading south from the 
heart of the down- town district, the necessity of the work be- 
comes apparent. As mentioned, in the report of the previous 
years, the Congress-street and Mt. Washington avenue bridges 
should be widened, on account of the great increase in ship- 
ping in the South bay. A petition is being circulated among 
the wharf owners requesting the national government to 
take steps to compel the city to rebuild Congress street and 
to rebuild or abolish Mt. Washington-avenue bridge. 

Much work in the way of repairs, replacing rolling stock, 
etc., is necessary to bring this division to the standard of 
efficiency demanded by the travelling public, and increase in 
the maintenance appropriations has been asked for, which, if 
granted, will allow the department to proceed with this work.

$69,290.70, 



Upon assuming control of the department this division was 
thoroughly inspected by me, with a view to improving the 
conditions of the service, of which many complaints had 
been made. 

Experts carefully examined the plant and reported at 
length, and work was commenced along the lines laid down 
by them. 

The boats, buildings, piers, etc., were overhauled, repaired, 
and painted, and the service so much improved as to cause 
general commendation from the travelling public. 

Much remains to be done, and, with the installing of the 
various shops at the ferries, repairs can be made by the 
division force promptly and with little inconvenience to 
travel. 



City Document No. 40. 



PAVING DIVISION. 

Expenditures. 
Maintenance. Specials. 

$902,136.05. $33,451.11. 

The paving of down-town streets has been carried on as 
far as the appropriation would admit, and pitch joints substi- 
tuted for cement grout on account of the many complaints 
as to the slipperiness of the latter form of joint. Seven 
ledges have been in operation during the year, and many 
macadam streets have been built and resurfaced. 

Work has progressed on Columbia road and Bennington 
street, and Blue Hill avenue has been built to Mattapan. 

The South End Wharf Paving No. 2 will be rebuilt the 
coming year, and Rutherford avenue, Devens and Bow 
streets will be finished. Many of the suburban streets have 
been resurfaced, and the force of the division has cooperated 
with that of the Street-Cleaning Division in the scraping 
of gutters, etc. 

SANITARY ^ DIVISION. 

Expenditures. 
Maintenance. Specials. 

$675,319.64. $50,000. 

The cost of collecting and removing house dirt, ashes, and 
offal is greatly increased by the lack of" suitable dumping 
places. Attention has been previously called to this condi- 
tion, and steps must be taken to remedy the trouble at once. 

The system of collecting and removing offal and ashes 
by contract should be abolished, and, to this end, yards 
should be established by this division in Dorchester, West 
Roxbury, and Brighton. 

The service under the contract system is unsatisfactory, 
and the residents of these districts are demanding a change. 



STREET-CLEANING DIVISION. 

Expenditures. 
Maintenance .... $392,802.09 

The push-cart patrol system should be extended as much 
as possible and provision made for the replacing of the roll- 
ing stock and horses of this division. 



Street Department. 9 

As is well known, when this division was organized in 
1891 the carts, harnesses, horses, tools, etc., were furnished 
from the Sanitary Division, and sufficient money has never 
been provided to replace any of this worn-out stock. 

In the preceding pages the attention of the public has been 
called to the littering of the streets by the throwing of 
papers, fruit parings, etc., and the remedy suggested, the 
cooperation of our citizens, would result in more sightly 
looking street surfaces. 



STREET- WATERING DIVISION. 

Expenditures. 
$160,147.25 

The most noticeable feature in the work of this division 
has been the increase in the number of miles of streets 
watered and the decrease in the appropriations for doing the 
work, and in order to properly water all public streets 
money should be provided in proportion to the number of 
miles of new streets constructed annually. 



SUMMARY OF WORK DONE. 
Bridge Division. 

Overhauled and thoroughly repaired the following bridges, 
viz: 

Congress-street, Cottage-street, Dover-street, Federal-street, 
Mt. Washington-avenue, North Beacon-street, Warren-street, 
Boylston-street over Boston & Albany Railroad, Columbus- 
avenue, Shawmut-avenue, West Fourth-street, and West 
Newton-street. 

Ferry Division. 

Seven ferry-boats have been running on full time during 
the entire year, and over 500,000 more passengers were 
carried than in the preceding year. 

The entire plant of the division has been examined by 
three experts, and a large amount of new and necessary work 
done.

APPENDIX A. 



REPORT OF THE DEPUTY SUPERINTENDENT OF 
THE BRIDGE DIVISION. 



927 and 928 Tremont Building, 

Boston, February 1, 1903. 

Hon. James Donovan, 

Superinte?ident of Streets, Boston: 

Dear Sir, — I respectfully submit herewith the annual 
report of the expenditures, income, and operations of the 
Bridge Division of the Street Department for the financial 
year ending January 31, 1903. 

The total number of bridges is 153, not including culverts. 
Eight of these, namely, Harvard, Canal, Prison Point, West 
Boston, Essex street, Cambridge, Western avenue to Cam- 
bridge, and North Harvard street, all connecting Boston and 
Cambridge, are in charge of two commissioners, one of whom 
is appointed by the Mayor of the City of Boston, and the 
other by the Mayor of the City of Cambridge. 

One hundred and thirteen bridges are supported wholly or 
in part by the City of Boston, 28 of these being tide-water 
bridges provided with a draw. Forty bridges are supported 
wholly by railroad corporations. 

There are 13 important tide-water bridges, namely, Mt. 
Washington avenue, operated by hand-power ; Maiden, 
Charlestown, Summer street, Chelsea north, Dover street, 
Federal street and Meridian street, operated by electricity ; 
Warren, Broadway, Congress street, L street and Chelsea 
south, operated by steam-power. 

The force employed on the tide-water bridges are all work- 
ing on an 8-hour basis, which necessitated the employment 
of 9 men on each of the 12 bridges, and 12 men on the 
Charlestown bridge, making a total force of 120 men 
employed on the 13 principal draw-bridges. This makes an 
increase of 20 men, entailing an additional expense of approx- 
imately $16,000. 

The different inland bridges have been repaired at various 



4 City Document No. 40. 

times, and have all been kept in a safe condition for public 
travel, all reported defects being promptly remedied. 

The Shawmut-avenue bridge, over the New York, New 
Haven and Hartford Railroad, Providence Division, and the 
Boston and Albany Railroad, should be rebuilt. The City 
Engineer has called the attention of this department to the 
dangerous condition of this bridge. Several times during 
the past three years needed repairs have been made in order 
to make it safe for travel. Early in 1902 it was found 
necessary to remove the iron parapets, and after this had 
been done on one side of the bridge a thorough examination 
was made by the City Engineer, who reported that the bridge 
needed rebuilding in the interest of public safety, and 
requested that it be made safe, temporarily, for public travel. 
This has been done, and an appropriation should be provided 
to rebuild this bridge, as further repairs would be a useless 
expenditure of money. 

Respectfully submitted, 

J. P. Lomasney, 

Deputy Superintendent.

APPENDIX B. 



REPORT OF THE DEPUTY SUPERINTENDENT OF 
THE FERRY DIVISION. 

North Ferry, East Boston, February 1, 1903. 

Mr. James Donovan, 

Superintendent of Streets : 

Dear Sir, — I herewith submit the annual report of the 
expenditures, income, and operation of the Ferry Division, 
for the financial year ending January 31, 1903, also the 
amount of property in the care of the division and the con- 
dition of the same. 

Upon assuming charge of this division, an investigation 
was made of the condition of the boats, piers, and buildings 
by a commission of three disinterested men, who reported 
that the whole plant needed a general overhauling and reno- 
vation, especially the machinery on the boats, and in addition 
to their recommendations -it was found that there were many 
other matters that needed attention, which have been attended 
to. 

Two new shafts have been put in the " General Hancock," 
her main deck calked, the dynamo and electric lights taken 
out of the " Revere " and transferred to her. 

The "D. D. Kelly" was put on the railway and her hull 
patched and cleaned and main deck calked. 

The main deck of the " Hugh O'Brien " was calked. 

The " Revere " was put on the railway and her hull patched 
and cleaned and rudders straightened. 

The " Governor Russell " was put on the railway and four 
new propeller blades put on. 

The " Noddle Island " and " General Sumner " were put 
on the railway and their hulls calked and metalled for the 
first time. Both main decks were also calked. 

In addition to the above work, the machinery and wood- 
work of all the boats except the " Revere " were thoroughly 
overhauled and repaired and painted from the hull up. 



26 City Document No. 40. 

The coal-pocket at South Ferry, East Boston side, was 
seriously damaged by fire in September, 1901, and cost to 
repair in 1902 about $2,000. Proper ventilation has been 
put into this pocket now, and the chances of it taking fire 
again have been greatly reduced. 

In the future a first-class grade of coal should be purchased, 
as experience teaches that the better the coal the less liability 
there is of spontaneous combustion 'and better results for 
steam purposes. If the price of coal should advance very 
considerably during the coming year on account of strikes it 
will hamper this division greatly, as we use about 12,000 tons 
during the year, which must be paid from the maintenance 
fund. 

Speaking of the increase in expenditures, it is well to add 
that the cost of supplies (other than coal) has advanced 
almost one-third in the past few years, and on account of the 
many improved facilities, running extra boats, etc., a large 
amount of extra supplies has necessarily been used. 

Steam heating fixtures have been extended so as to practi- 
cally abolish the use of stoves in the division, something long 
looked for, as heat from stoves for our extensive ferry plant, 
besides being very dangerous to life and property, was 
extremely unsatisfactory, and the cause of much complaint 
from the citizens. 

Considerable complaint was made at the beginning of the 
year on account of the unclean condition of the head-houses 
and boats, and an extra force was put at work to remedy the 
trouble. 

The working force (all the employees of the division) have 
been placed on an eight-hour basis, to comply with the law. 

Because of these reasons the regular force of the division 
had to be increased, and a careful examination of the work of 
this division will show more work done during the past year 
than ever before, and the plant in good working condition, 
with the exception of the middle pier at the North Ferry, 
East Boston side, which should be replaced as soon as 
possible during the year, as it is now in a dangerous 
condition, and the three piers at the South Ferry, Boston 
side, which should be replaced by new ones at once, and the 
head-house should be moved to one side, as at the other 
landings. 

The increase in receipts over 1901 was $6,310.26, and 
there were over 500,000 more passengers carried than in the 
preceding year.

Both Trinidad and Sicilian rock asphalts are laid under a 
ten (10) years guarantee. 

Bituminous Macadam. 

A new form of pavement has been introduced during the 
year known as Warren's bituminous macadam. It consists 
of a foundation of crushed stone about four inches in depth, 
rolled in the same manner as ordinary macadam, over this is 
spread layers of bituminous cement for the purpose of hold- 
ing the foundation ami uniting it with the wearing surface. 
T:ie wearing surface consists of about two inches of stone, 
which vary in size from one inch to a fine powder, carefully 
proportioned in order to give as great a compactness as pos- 
sible, and the least number of voids; heated and thoroughly 
mixed with bituminous cement, and rolled by a heavy steam 
road-roller. 

The advantages claimed for this pavement are that it is 
suitable for all grades, as it affords an excellent foothold for 
horses, is noiseless and free from mud and dust, and is not 
affected by the moisture in the atmosphere. The streets sur- 
faced with bituminous macadam are: 

Hancock street, Mt. Vernon street to Cambridge street. 
Boivdoin street, Ashburton place to Cambridge street. 
Massachusetts avenue, Harvard bridge across Beacon street. 
Belvidere street, Massachusetts avenue to Falmouth street. 
Tremont street, Phillips street to St. Alphonsus street. 

A total area of 9,609 square yards of bituminous macadam 
laid.

One hundred and forty-two of the above-mentioned permits 
were granted for the construction of artificial stone sidewalks, 
and an inspector was specially assigned to this work. 

All bonds, excepting those of corporations, are guaranteed 
by some one of the surety companies authorized to do business 
in the State of Massachusetts. 

There are in force 1,118 such bonds, and there have been 
692 bonds retired during the year. 

There have been 19,742 notices sent to the various fore- 
men during the year, directing them to repair defects in the 
public streets which had been reported by the police, inspec- 
tors and others: also, 4,808 notices to departments, corpora- 
tions and private parties to repair the streets where they had 
received permits for excavations, and the work of resur- 
facing had been improperly done, and to owners of estates 
where coal-holes or sidewalk lights were defective. 

By request of the Chief Engineer of the Paving Division 
there have been 603 notices sent to departments and corpora- 
tions calling for various changes in their structures on account 
of street improvements. In each case permits have been 
granted allowing them to do the work. 

Seven thousand three hundred and sixty-two notices have 
been sent to departments, corporations and owners of abutting 
estates on streets where improvements were about to be made. 

Inspectors. 

With the exception of those required at the office for 
emergency work, inspectors are located at the various yards, 
and report each day by mail to this office regarding defects 
in the streets on their routes. Notices are sent to the proper 
parties directing that these reports be made, and the inspec- 
tor is notified to see that the repairs are properly attended 
to. 

Inspectors have been detailed to serve with and at the 
expense of corporations excavating in the streets, and make 
daily and weekly reports on the progress of the work. 

The change in emergency permits directed by the super- 
intendent of streets — viz., the addition of a coupon to be 
mailed to this office at once when the permit is given out 
to the workmen — went into effect on November 17, and the

results are very satisfactory, as it enables us to have a 
better knowledge of emergency openings than we have had 
heretofore. 

Permits have been granted to set 752 new telegraph and 
telephone poles during the year, and for the removal of 118. 

Street Numbering. 

During the year five whole streets were numbered, 17 
whole streets renumbered, 524 parts of streets numbered, 
949 estates numbered, 332 estates on which numbers were 
changed, and 3,403 metallic figures were supplied. The 
appended table explains the work done by districts :

APPENDIX E. 



REPORT OF THE DEPUTY SUPERINTENDENT OF 
THE SEWER DIVISION. 



30 Tkemont Street, Boston, February 1, 1903. 

Mr. James Donovan, 

Superintendent of Streets : 

Dear Sir, — I respectfully submit report of the expendi- 
tures, income and operation of the Sewer Division for the 
financial year ending January 31, 1903, together with recom- 
mendations as to the future development of the sewer 
system. N 

The work of the Sewer Division is as follows : 

The preparation of plans for sewerage works, the construc- 
tion and maintenance of all drainage works, including the 
investigation of complaints in regard to defective drainage, 
the granting of permits for sewer connections and the prepa- 
ration of plans for the assessment of the cost of construction ; 
also the examination of the plans of other corporations/ pro- 
posing to construct works in public streets, with reference to 
their probable interference with sewerage works, and approval 
of lines and grades of private streets with reference to the 
requirements of this division. 

In the last annual report the changes in the Boston sewer 
system which will be necessitated by the creation of the 
South Metropolitan District, and the building by the State of 
the high level sewer, were fully discussed. 

These changes involve large additional expenses to the 
City of Boston in the building of branch intercepting sewers, 
and the conversion of the existing combined system into a 
separate system throughout the twenty-one square miles of 
the city's territory which is now included in the South Met- 
ropolitan District. 

To meet these expenses the following bill has been intro- 
duced by His Honor the Mayor : 



Street Department — Sewer Division. 101 

(Chap. 383.) 
An Act Relative to Separate Systems op Dkainage. 

JBe it enacted, etc., as follows : 

Section 1. The owner of every estate abutting on a public 
way in which a drain, namely, a conduit for surface or storm 
water and such waters as shall be specified by the state board of 
health ; and a sewer, namely, a conduit for all other waters and 
for sewage, all such other waters to be considered sewage, shall 
have been provided by a city or town, and the owner of any other 
estate, using any such drain or sewer, shall make or change the 
plumbing of his estate so that the waters shall be kept separate 
from the sewage ; and shall, as directed by the officer having 
charge of the maintenance of sewers in such city or town, make 
connections for, and conduct, the waters into the drain and the 
sewage into the sewer. 

Sect. 2. The owner of every estate whose sewage is to be 
taken into any metropolitan sewer shall hereafter, in plumbing 
his estate, so arrange the plumbing as to keep the waters separate 
from the sewage, and shall, as directed by said officer, make 
connections for, and conduct, the waters into the drain and the 
sewage into the sewer ; but where only one conduit shall have 
been provided in the street by the city or towD, such owner shall, 
as directed by said officer, construct said connections into the 
street and connect them with the conduit so provided, and the 
city or town shall provide the other conduit and all necessary 
connections with either conduit. 

Sect. 3. Any city or town using any metropolitan sewer may, 
in any year, and shall in any year specified by the officer or board 
having charge of said sewers, expend one-twentieth of one 
per cent, of its taxable valuation, to be met by loan outside the 
debt limit, in the construction, in connection with said sewers, of 
branch intercepting sewers, connections of existing sewers with 
intercepting sewers, branch drains, sewers or drains in any street 
where one thereof only shall have been built, and the necessary 
connections aforesaid. 

Sect. 4. The supreme judicial court and the superior court 
shall have jurisdiction in equity to enforce the provisions of this 
act. 

Sect. 5. This act shall take effect upon its passage. 

This department will proceed during the coming year to 
carry out the provisions of this act, if passed, plans having 
already been made for that purpose. The first work which 
will be done, in all probability, will be to build the high level 
branch intercepter, which will afford relief to the long- 
suffering Talbot avenue district, and also to separate storm 
water from the sewage in this same district. 



102 City Document No. 40. 

These two measures should effect a complete remedy for 
the evils which have so long existed in this district. 

A general statement of the most important work done by 
the division during the year, accompanied by recommen- 
dations as to the work required in the immediate future, is 
given in the succeeding pages, and is classified according to 
districts. 

South Boston. 

There have been built in this district during the past 
year 556.75 linear feet of brick sewer, 277 linear feet of 
wooden sewer, 4,264.25 linear feet of pipe sewer, 495.75 
linear feet of brick surface drain, 2,443.36 linear feet of pipe 
surface drain, and 579 linear feet of house drain, making a 
total of 8,616.11 linear feet, or 1.63 miles. 

The principal works completed are : 

Columbia road, between Vale and G streets. Work was 
carried on throughout the entire year, and this portion, with 
the exception of the Vale-street outlet, can be said to be 
completed and ready for street surfacing. 

L-street outlet. This outlet takes the storm water from 
about forty acres in the vicinity of Broadway, K street, L 
street, and East First street, and when finished will abate 
the flooding of cellars, which was of such frequent occur- 
rence in this district. The old overflow which this replaces 
had become entirely blocked up, and had to be extended to 
the L-street bridge for an outlet. A departure was made 
here in building a 5-foot sewer in soft ground by using 
square timbers, cut in suchwise that when laid to line they 
formed a true circle 5 feet in diameter, thus forming a flexible 
and substantial sewer at comparatively small cost. 

West Seventh street, between B and D streets. This 
sewer was built to take the place of an old wooden sewer 
constructed here many years ago. The old sewer was found 
to be broken down and filled with gravel and other refuse to 
such an extent that it cut off the flow from about thirty-five 
acres of well built up territory, and left the street in dan- 
gerous condition for travel. 

East First street, between P and Q streets. This 5-foot 
overflow was built to take the storm water from the system 
of common sewers in the vicinity of P street, Second street, 
and Third street, and has provided a means of overcoming 
the flooding of cellars which often occurred in this locality. 

Sewers have also been built in East First street, between 
H and Vicksburg streets ; Old Harbor street, between Eighth 
and Ninth streets; East Ninth street, between L and K 



Street Department — Sewer Division. 103 

streets ; Foundry street ; Mitchell street ; East Ninth and 
Dunham streets, between Mercer and Old Harbor streets. 

Private parties have built a sewer in Midway street; and 
Bowen street, between E and F streets, and E street, be- 
tween Fargo street and Summer street extension, have been 
built "under the Act." 

Considerable dredging has been done in South Boston 
during the year at the mouths of the B and Seventh streets 
overflow, the Kemp-street outlet, the N-street outlet, and the 
I-street outlet. 

Recommendations. 

D street, from Dorchester avenue to Seventh street. This 
sewer is too small, is very badly settled out of line and grade 
and greatly overcharged in time of storm, resulting in the 
flooding of many cellars in the immediate vicinity. It 
should be rebuilt at once, at a greater depth, of large size, and 
on pile foundations. 

F street, between West First and West Second streets. 
This is a very old single ring brick sewer, and has had to be 
repaired many times recentlj 7 , owing to breaks having been 
found after the falling in of the street surface. 

A street, between West First and Congress streets. This 
is an old wooden and brick sewer, which has broken down in 
several places during the past year, cutting off the flow from 
the large warehouse district in the vicinity of A and Con- 
gress streets, resulting in considerable damage. Temporary 
repairs have been made from time to time, but an extensive 
system of new sewers and drains is essential before the sani- 
tary conditions here can be called satisfactory. 

Vale-street outlet. This outlet is a small wooden conduit, 
badly broken and filled up and should be replaced by a 
6-foot circular brick conduit from Columbia road to tide- 
water. 

H-street outlet. This should be carried out to deeper 
water, and stone wing walls built to protect the same. 

K-street outlet. This should be extended out to deep 
water, and a system of wing walls constructed, as proposed 
for H street. 

N-street outlet. This outlet should be cleaned out from 
its mouth to the northerly line of Columbia road, as it rap- 
idly fills up with sand from the adjoining beach. 

A tliens street, between D and F streets. This is a small 
wood and slate affair, about half filled with sludge, which is 
not easily accessible and emits a very bad odor. 



104 City Document No. 40. 

Columbia road. There still remains to be constructed in 
the portion of Columbia road in South Boston a large 
amount of sewerage works. The part between I and Q 
streets has not been touched, with the exception of a small 
sewer between K and M streets. In the portion along Old 
Colony avenue, from Mount Vernon street to Vale street, 
nothing has been done, and work should be started here in 
the immediate future, as there is considerable sewerage and 
drainage work to be done before the road can be surfaced. 
The outlets for this portion of Columbia road can be built 
within the boundaries of the old location of the Old Colony 
railroad, and this work can be deferred until some future 
time, thus turning the road over to the Paving Division at 
the earliest practicable moment. 

East Boston. 

There have been built in this district during the past year 
2,001.03 linear feet pipe sewer, 534.23 linear feet brick sewer, 
172.76 linear feet 6-inch pipe house drain, and 2,171.94 linear 
feet pipe surface drain, making a total of 4,879.96 linear 
feet, or 0.92 miles. 

The most of this was building house sewers and surface 
drains in Bennington-street boulevard, between Moore and 
Trumbull streets, building surface water drain in Saratoga 
street, from old culvert to Wordsworth street, to relieve 
flooding of cellars on Wordsworth street, and building sewer 
in W alley street and Farrington avenue. 

Recommendations. 

East Boston low level sewer. This will be an outlet for 
part of Bennington-street boulevard, and will provide for the 
drainage of the low lying part of Breed's Island. It will 
also provide an outlet for Moore street intercepter when built. 
It will extend from the Metropolitan pumping station at Ad- 
dison and Chelsea streets to Belle Isle inlet. 

Moore street intercepter. This will intercept the sewage 
now emptying into Boston harbor at Moore and Coleridge 
streets and a part of Bennington street, and will connect 
with East Boston low level sewer at Trumbull and Kneeler 
streets. 

The building of the low level sewer and Bennington-street 
boulevard on the separate system will prevent the sewage 
from the whole of Breed's Island from flowing into Boston 
harbor, and will necessitate the building of surface drains in 
Leyden, Gladstone, Walley, Farrington, Ford and Breed 



Street Department — Sewer Division. 105 

streets, and outlet for house sewer in that part of Ley den 
street lying between Breed and Boardman streets. 

Chelsea and Bennington streets, between Eagle square and 
Putnam streets. Many complaints have been received dur- 
ing the past four or five years regarding the flooding of cel- 
lars on these and adjacent streets in time of storm. The 
sewer here is inadequate in size and a supplementary sewer, 
of 24-inch pipe laid in the street and intercepting the catch- 
basins and house drains on one side between the outlet and 
Putnam street is very desirable. 

Curtis street, between Chelsea and Bremen streets. This 
sewer is in a leaky condition and the ground through which 
it runs is saturated with petroleum from the oil. work in the 
vicinity. This passes into the sewer and thence into the out- 
let in Chelsea street. The outlet is connected with the 
Metropolitan sewer in Chelsea street, near the Metropolitan 
pumping station. Owing to the danger of an explosion 
from the gas coming from the oil, the Metropolitan Sewer 
Commission has ordered this connection with their sewer to 
be sealed off, and the sewage runs out into Chelsea creek. 
Until the sewer in Curtis street is rebuilt the sewage will 
not be allowed to flow into the Metropolitan sewer. 

Montgomery avenue. This is a side hill street, and to put 
a sewer in the street low enough to drain cellars which may 
be built on the low side would require the sewer to be at a 
depth of about 17 feet. A cheaper method, if there are no land 
damages, would be to put the sewer along the back line of 
the lots on the down-hill side of the street, and build a 
shallow sewer in the street for the houses on the high side. 
Neither of these sewers need to be more than 7 feet deep, 
and the one on the back line of the lots would not average 
more than 6.5 feet deep. The house of the petitioner, and 
all other houses at present on the street, are, with one excep- 
tion, on the down-hill side. If the owners are willing to 
release a right of way from the sewer, a sewer on the down- 
hill side to accommodate all existing houses on this side 
should be built. 

East Boston Parkway, from Bennington street to Boston, 
Revere Beach & Lynn Railroad. This has been petitioned 
for, and when built must be on the separate system. There 
will be a house sewer on each side of' the Parkway, with 
outlet down Frankfort and Prescott streets to Metropolitan 
sewer. 

Porter street overflow outlet, from Bremen street to Bos- 
ton, Revere Beach & Lynn Railroad. This was an old wooden 
sewer originally built on piles. The wooden structure has 



106 City Document No. 40. 

now almost disappeared, having been broken out by ice* 
There have been numerous complaints from time to time 
regarding sewage being deposited on the flats from this over- 
flow, but the only sewage coming from it is in time of storm, 
when the Metropolitan sewer is filled and the sewage from 
the Porter street sewer overflows. The sewage is then so 
diluted by storm-water that it can cause but little nuisance. 
There seems to be no necessity for rebuilding this at present, 
nor until the flats through which it passes are filled in. 

In addition to the Moore street outlet for which there is 
at present no intercepter, there are two outlets on the north 
side of East Boston, viz., Glendon and Putnam streets out- 
lets, for which there is also no intercepter. The sewage 
from these two outlets empties into Chelsea creek. To 
intercept these outlets and connect them with the Metropoli- 
tan sewer at its nearest available point will require about 
2,700 linear feet of intercepting sewer, at an estimated cost 
of $20,000. This should be built. 

Charlestown. 

There have been built in this district 1,680.51 linear feet 
pipe sewers, 253.99 linear feet 6-inch pipe house drain, 
1,599.64 linear feet pipe surface drain, making a total of 
3,534.14 linear feet, or 0.67 miles. 

The most important of this was in the Beecham street dis- 
trict, so called, where the building of the new sewers for 
house sewage, and retaining as far as possible the old sewers 
for surface drains, turn the sewage into the Metropolitan 
sewer and keeps it from flowing into the Mystic river as 
heretofore. 

The sewer in Hamblin street in this district is in process 
of construction, and will be finished early in the year 1903. 
When this is completed all the sewage from the Beecham 
street district will be connected with the Metropolitan sewer. 

Recommendations. 

Warren avenue connection with Metropolitan sewer. All 
other sewers in Charlestown have been connected with the 
Metropolitan sewer except the one emptying at Warren-ave- 
nue bridge, and one which outlets at foot of Hamblen street 
into Mystic river. These two should be connected as soon 
as possible. The one at Warren avenue has been delayed in 
order not to interfere with traffic along the avenue. Some 
interference, however, is inevitable when the connection is 
made, and it is best to make it as soon as possible. 



Street Department — Sewer Division. 107 

Hamblen street, between Arlington avenue and George 
street. This and Warren avenue are the only two remaining 
outlets in Charlestown to be connected with the Metropol- 
itan sewer. The existing sewers in the vicinity of Hamblen 
street will be as far as possible preserved as storm water 
sewers and new house sewers built to carry the house 
sewage. 

Brighton. 

During the past year there have been built in this district 
8,620.05 linear feet pipe sewers, 315.32 linear feet 6-inch 
pipe house drain, 1,096.66 linear feet pipe surface drain, and 
1,828.27 linear feet brick surface drain, making a total of 
11,860.30 linear feet, or 2.25 miles. 

The most important of this was about 450 linear feet of 
6 feet by 7 feet brick conduit to carry Salt Creek brook. 
This brook is the outlet for all surface water in Common- 
wealth avenue, between Pleasant and Warren streets, and for 
a large territory in Brookline. 

About 350 linear feet of 11 feet by 9 feet brick conduit 
for Faneuil Valley brook, between Faneuil and Parsons 
streets; and also about 1,000 linear feet of 4-feet 6-inch 
circular brick conduit for the apper reaches of Faneuil Valley 
brook, between Lake street and Rogers park. This com- 
pletes the Faneuil Valley brook conduit, between Parsons 
street and upper Lake-street culvert at Chandlers' pond, 
except a gap across Rogers park, which will probably be 
built by the Park Commission ; a gap across Lake street at 
the lower culvert, opposite Rogers park, and a gap of about 
800 feet between Oakland and Faneuil streets. 

The cost of completing this work, except across Rogers 
park, will be about $15,000. 

Recommendations. 

Nonantum street, Washington street to Newton line, sur- 
face drain. This is needed, as the street is in poor condition 
every spring when the snow melts and frost comes out of 
the ground. The surface drain will connect with the exist- 
ing conduit for Oak square branch of Faneuil Valley brook. 

Wallingford road, between Chestnut Hill avenue and 
existing sewer. This street is in a tract of land cut up by 
the Westminster Land Company. The land company built 
sewers in several of the streets in this tract in 1901, and 
some three thousand feet of these sewers have no outlet. 
The outlet will be provided by building between the limits 
mentioned. 



108 City Document No. 40. 

Aberdeen district, so called. The streets in tins district 
are practically all sewered on the separate system, and the 
sewage passes into the Brookline system which is also 
designed to receive nothing but house sewage. Catch-basins 
are constantly called for in these streets, but. in order to pro- 
vide outlets for them it will be necessary to build a system 
of surface drains emptying into Brookline surface drains. 
This is a matter of considerable importance. 

Faneuil Valley brook conduit. This conduit is practically 
completed from Lake street, at Chandler's pond, to Parsons* 
street, with the exception of the gaps previously mentioned. 
This conduit when completed will furnish outlets for surface 
drains in a large territory now being rapidly built up, and in 
which the sewerage system must at an early date be changed 
from the combined to the separate systems. 

Shepard brook. This brook has its head- waters near 
Shannon and Union streets, and has at various places been 
taken into sewers, and the original brook channel has been 
obliterated. The catch-basins in this drainage area also con- 
nect with the sewers instead of draining into the brook by 
surface drains, as would have been the case if the brook 
channel had not been filled in and destroyed. The conse- 
quence is that sewers in this territory are overcharged at 
every rain-storm, and frequent complaints of flooding of cellars 
and streets are received. The course of this conduit will be 
from its connection with the Faneuil Valley conduit at North 
Beacon street, near Boston & Albany Railroad, across private 
land to Market street, in Market, Henshaw, Menlo, Wash- 
ington and Shepard streets, and private land to Shannon 
street. 

Conduit for easterly branch of Shepard brook from Mur- 
dock street down North Beacon street, Arthur, and Hichborn 
streets, and private land to Everett street, in Everett street, 
Lincoln, Erickson and Adams streets, to and across Franklin 
street, in Alcott and Mansfield streets, and Coolidge road, 
across North Harwood street, and in private land and across 
Western avenue to Charles river. This brook has been 
taken into sewers at various points, and the channel 
obliterated for practically the entire distance to North 
Harvard street. For part of the distance there are small 
pipe surface drains, but they are utterly inadequate in size. 
In other places the catch-basins connect with the sewers, 
which become surcharged at every rainfall of any magnitude. 
A petition signed by one hundred and eleven residents of 
this territory was sent in the latter part of 1901 and has 
been reported upon. 



Street Department — Sewer Division. 109 

Everett street overflow. This overflow formerly con- 
nected directly with an arm of the Charles river, which was 
filled in, and the overflow almost entirely cut off by building 
the speedway on Charles river reservation by the Metropoli- 
tan Park Commission. 

West Roxbtjry. 

There have been built in this district 19,099.29 linear feet 
of pipe sewers, 1,509.58 linear feet 6-inch pipe house drains, 
5,177.30 linear feet pipe surface drains, 1,264.18 linear feet 
brick surface drains, 68 linear feet brick and concrete sur- 
face drains, 299.16 linear feet wood surface drains, 30 
linear feet brick culvert, and 72.00 linear feet brick and 
stone culvert, making a total of 27,519.46 linear feet, or 5.21 
miles. 

The principal works completed are : 

A 6-foot by 5-foot 9-inch culvert under South street at 
Bussey brook. This takes the place of the old stone culvert 
of utterly inadequate size, and will prevent the flooding of 
South street, which occurred at this point at every rain- 
storm of any magnitude. 

Brick and pipe surface drains, about 2,000 feet long, in 
Boylston and Lamartine streets, between Stony brook and 
Cedar avenue. This relieves the overcrowded condition of 
the sewers in this vicinity in time of storm, and was a relief 
long desired by residents of the neighborhood. 

Completing sewerage works in Walter street and beginning 
the improvement of Roslindale branch of Stony brook. This 
improvement is begun between Washington and Cohasset 
streets, and consists of an 8-foot circular concrete structure, 
which, it is to be hoped, will be extended in, the near future 
up to the vicinity of Highland station. 

Recommendation s. 

Spring street, between Charles river and Gardner streets. 
A surface drain is needed in this street and has been 
petitioned for. The surface water is at present turned on to 
private land by chutes, and causes considerable trouble and 
damage. 

Intercepting sewer between end of Metropolitan sewer in 
Weld street and Arthur street. This is really a part of the 
Metropolitan system which will at some time be extended to 
the Brookline territory. Until it is built there will be no 
outlet for those parts of Westover, Maple, Willow and 



110 City Document No. 40. 

Arthur streets lying between Weld street and this inter- 
cepter. Petitions have been received for these streets, but 
the Metropolitan Sewerage Commission has no intention at 
present of building the outlet. It should be built by the 
city, and when the time comes turned over to the Metropoli- 
tan sewer at its cost to the city, with interest added. 

Hemlock street, Washington street to Bellevue street. 
This will be the outlet for Washington street, between Hem- 
lock and Beech streets, and for the territory south of Wash- 
ington street to Kittridge street, Kittridge street, between 
Metropolitan avenue and Mayo street. This will outlet 
down Kittridge street to Hemman-street extension, thence 
to Washington street, and down Hemlock street. 

Beech street, near Washington street, culvert. This has 
been requested several times, as the old culvert under the 
street is stopped up by the widening of Beech street. 

Linnet street surface drain, with outlet in La Grange and 
Maxfield streets to Spring-street brook. The building of 
this will relieve the property on Linnet and Landseer streets 
from flooding, which occurs at nearly every storm. 

Lee and Child streets, and private land to Carolina avenue. 
This is an old brook channel, which was taken, walled in and 
covered over many years ago, before West Roxbury was 
annexed to Boston. It is now too small in size *to care for 
the water brought to it in time of storm, and is in poor 
condition. It frequently floods adjoining property in time 
of storm, and relief has been requested by the property 
owners. 

Roslindale branch of Stony brook improvement, from 
Cohasset street to Central station and from Central station 
to Highland station. This improvement is absolutely neces- 
sary, in order to prevent the flooding which occurs every 
spring on Belgrade avenue and in the vicinity of Highland 
station. As the streets in the neighborhood are built and 
the territory developed the floods are of more frequent 
occurrence ; and during the spring of 1901 Belgrade 
avenue was impassable for even electric cars for a period of 
one or two hours on at least two occasions. Streets in the 
vicinity of Highland station are also flooded in heavy rains. 
It will be impossible to provide any outlet for surface water 
coming from the adjacent territory until this improvement 
takes place. Surface drains in Belgrade avenue cannot be 
built, nor the building of Railroad street, already ordered 
under chapter 323, etc., carried on for the same reason. 

William-street surface drain and brook conduit, between 
Stony brook and Forest Hills street. This conduit is neces- 



Street Department — Sewer Division. Ill 

sary, as the present outlet for the brook is a small pipe 
entirely inadequate in size, and frequent floodings occur 
along the line of the brook. 

Boylston street, between Stony brook and Washington 
street, surface drain. This drain is necessary to take surface 
water and a brook which formerly flowed through this terri- 
tory. The sewers in this area are overcrowded at every 
storm, and should be changed to the separate system as soon 
as possible. 

Chestnut avenue surface drain. This is very necessary 
in order to relieve the congested condition of the sewer in 
Boylston street. 

Arborway and Pond street, from culvert in Arborway to 
May street. This will relieve the flooding several times 
-complained of in the vicinity of Pond and May streets. 

Surface drain in private land — Heathcote, Poplar and 
Hillside streets — to take brook now flowing into sewer in 
Poplar street, and relieve overcrowded condition of Poplar 
and Washington street sewers. 

Glen road and Washington street, between Forest Hills 
street and Stony brook. There is a culvert running across 
Glen road and to Forest Hills street. This was built before 
West Roxbury was annexed to Boston, and is now broken 
down and should be rebuilt, with outlet down Washington 
street to Stony brook. 

Improvement of Spring street brook, from Charles river 
to Baker street, including rebuilding of culvert under Baker 
street, which is necessary in order to provide an outlet for 
surface drainage in Baker street, between the brook and 
Spring street. 

Dorchester. 

During the past year there have been built in this district 
26,159.45 linear feet of pipe sewer, 5,834.07 linear feet 
brick surface drain, 13,362.28 linear feet pipe surface drain, 
4,375.40 linear feet 6-inch house drain — making a total of 
49,731.20 linear feet, or 9.42 miles. 

The principal works completed in North Dorchester are : 

Hancock street, from Columbia road to Winter street. 
Work progressed steadily during the year 1901 in this street 
and was finished this year. 

Freeport street brook, between Hancock and Trull streets, 
including the tributary streets — Howe, Rill and Trull 
streets — was finished during the present year. 

Freeport street brook, between tide-water and High street. 



112 City Document No. 40. 

Work was begun at Dorchester avenue and finished as far as 
Pleasant street. 

Crescent avenue brook, between Shoreham street and Car- 
son street. This work was carried on throughout the year 
and is practically finished, with the exception of the connec- 
tion at the Old Colony Railroad, and when completed will 
provide an adequate outlet for the Crescent avenue district, 
which has been troubled in time of storm for many years. 

Columbia road, between Dorchester avenue and the rail- 
road bridge Sewerage works in this portion of the road 
have been completed and the road turned over to the Paving 
Division for surfacing. 

Franklin field brook, between Franklin field and Harvard 
street. This (Franklin-field brook) conduit has been built 
to take the storm-water from the Harvard-street district and 
the brook which crosses Blue Hill avenue and private land 
to Harvard street, where it formerly flowed under the brick 
building at the corner of Talbot avenue and Harvard street. 

Harvard street surface drainage. A start has been made 
on this system by the lowering of the sewer in Harvard 
street, from Blue Hill avenue to Vaughan street, and work 
should be resumed on this system in the immediate future, 
as complaints are constantly coming in from abutters on 
Harvard and adjoining streets. 

Tenean creek, between Geneva avenue and Marlowe 
street. This conduit was extended to Maflowe street to 
take the water from the brook at this location and drain the 
low land bounded by Geneva avenue, Park, Marlowe and 
Vinson streets. 

Marshfield street. This sewer was badly settled and the 
sewage backed up in the houses after nearly every storm. 

Cottage terrace. Same as Marshfield street. 

Sewers have also been constructed in Bullard street, Cor- 
nell street, Fox street, Geneva avenue, Ingleside street, 
Kineo street, Mascoma, Millett, Normandy, Stanwood and 
Spring streets, and in Wales place and Clapp street. 

Private parties have built sewers in Sumner terrace and 
Sudan street. 

Charlotte street, Dakota street, Fayston street, Wayland 
street, Hinckley street, Morrill street, Lindsey street, Vin- 
son street, St. Margaret street, and Hamilton street have been 
built " under the Act." 

The work of the Sewer Division in South Dorchester, for 
the past year, has been centred in the construction of pipe 
sewers, which have been repeatedly cnlled for in petitions 
and by requests from the Board of Health. Some of the 
most important of these are as follows : 



Street Department — Sewer Division. 113 

River street, between Washington and Idaho streets, 
thereby removing the cause of much pollution of the Nepon- 
set river, and giving sewerage facilities to a thickly settled 
area. 

The completion of the sewerage works in Avondale place, 
thereby doing away with a great number of cesspools which 
are a menace to the health of the community. 

The outlet in private land, between Highland avenue and 
Sheridan street, which will allow the building of sewers in 
Washington court, Minot place, and Sheridan court, has 
been completed, thereby abating a long standing nuisance. 

The completion of sewerage works in quite a number of 
streets under chapter 323 of the Acts of 1891, etc., the most 
important of which was in Blue Hill avenue, from Neponset 
river to Walk Hill street, thereby allowing the avenue to be 
graded, and providing an outlet for a number of adjoining 
streets. 

In regard to the building of surface drains, the most im- 
portant work completed during the past year was the Canter- 
bury branch of Stony brook in Franklin field, between 
Talbot avenue and Lyons street, also a part of the Oakland 
Garden fork. This channel varies in size from 4 feet 6 inches 
to a 10 feet circular brick conduit, and, although started under 
the previous administration the most of the work was done 
during the past' year. This improvement provides an ample 
outlet for all surface drains in this area, and allows of the 
removal of the unsightly open ditch in Franklin field. 

The improvement of the Davenport brook channel, between 
Van Winkle and Bailey streets, has been started, and is fast 
nearing completion, as far as the present order for the same 
will permit. This channel will greatly relieve the sewers in 
the vicinity, and the flooding of cellars during and after 
every rainstorm will be abated. 

On the Oakland brook, at Mattapan, a conduit has been 
built across River street, to take the place of an old stone 
affair, from which we were constantly receiving complaints, 
and a contract let for the extension of the same. 

Recommendations. 

For North Dorchester, Freeport street brook from tide- 
water to Dorchester avenue. Work should be begun on this 
outlet dining the coming year, to afford an overflow for the 
system of storm drains already built in the upper regions of 
this territory. Many of the surface drains in this area have 
not been connected with the main conduit, owing to this 
outlet not having been constructed. A large amount of 



114 City Document No. 40. 

work is necessary here on account of the crossing of the Dor- 
chester intercepting sewer and cutting off of the main trunk 
sewer in Dorchester avenue. 

Franklin field conduit. This should be extended from 
Harvard street up to the line of Blue Hill avenue to take 
the flow of this old watercourse, which now meanders 
through private land and is a source of much annoyance to 
the abutters, as considerable sewage finds its way into this 
brook owing to the overcrowded condition of the sewers in 
Blue Hill avenue. 

Harvard street district. Considerable surface drainage 
will have to be undertaken here, and work should be started 
immediately to relieve the Talbot avenue main trunk sewer, 
which has caused so much trouble by flooding and been the 
cause of numerous suits against the city for large amounts 
in recent years. This work includes the building of brick 
drains in Harvard street, from Blue Hill avenue to Wales 
street, and small pipe surface drains in Vaughan street, 
Abbott street, Wales street, and Esmond street. 

The above streets are the ones which might affect the 
Harvard street sewer and cause flooding, but it will be neces- 
sary to construct a system of surface drains in the entire 
Talbot avenue drainage area before permanent relief can be 
afforded. 

Tenean creek, between Westville street and Holmes 
avenue. This is made necessary by a large amount of sur- 
face water that is brought down from Hamilton street, 
Draper street, and other streets in this vicinity, which have 
no storm water outlet, overflowing private land and causing 
considerable damage to private estates. 

Normandy street. Surface drains should be extended 
from Devon street to the brook in private land beyond 
Geneva avenue to abate the nuisance which exists here 
nearly all the time. 

Tonawanda street surface drain. This drain should be 
lowered from a point in Tonawanda street across private 
land, Lindsey street and Stratford street to Park street. 
This drain was built by private parties, and takes 
the storm water from a considerable area, but was laid with 
poor joints and has become nearly filled with sand. When 
rebuilt it should be laid at a lower grade. 

Faxon street surface drain. A drain should be built from 
the Oakland Garden fork of Canterbury branch of Stony 
brook along the New England Railroad, through Faxon 
street to Washington street, to take the storm water from 
Kilton street, Millett street, and other streets in this low 
territory which are flooded after nearly every heavy rain. 



Street Department — Sewer Division. 115 

Dorchester brook sewer. A start should be made during 
the coming year on the separation of the system in the area 
drained by the Dorchester brook sewer, as the district 
through which this sewer flows has been built up so rapidly 
in the past few years that the old main trunk sewer is entirely 
unfit to take the drainage properly. 

Sewers should also be constructed in Roseclaire street, 
Greenhalge street, Bowdoin street, between Cottage Park 
and Olney street, Harvard street at Kilton street, Geneva 
avenue, between Willow and Normandy streets, Elder street 
extension, Buttonwood court and private land between Moseley 
street and Columbia road ; and a sewer should also be built 
in Willow court, between Boston court and the Dorchester 
brook overflow, with an outlet across private land into the 
common sewer in Massachusetts avenue. 

For South Dorchester. The most important work con- 
templated in this district is the building of the Dorchester 
intercepters to connect with the Metropolitan high level 
sewer, which is fast nearing completion. 

The largest and longest of these intercepters is the one 
starting at Hyde Park line and running through Mattapan, 
Dorchester Lower Mills, Ashmont, Meeting House Hill, and 
terminating at the crossing of Blue Hill avenue and More- 
land street, in Roxbury. A start should be made on this 
the coming year. 

The next largest intercepter is the one starting from the 
Metropolitan high level sewer, near the corner of Ashland 
and Canterbury streets, crossing Walk Hall street, Morton 
street and Blue Hill avenue, and terminating at the corner 
of Norfolk street and Talbot avenue. This is in some 
respects more important than the first mentioned intercepter, 
as it will afford a sewer outlet for Morton street, will do 
away with the Callender and Lyons streets pumping station, 
and afford a new outlet for the rebuilding of the Talbot 
avenue sewer at a lower and more satisfactory grade. 

The next important work in this district should be the 
improvement of the several brook courses, from which we 
are constantly receiving complaints. The first one to receive 
our attention should be the Davenport brook channel, espe- 
cially the part below Adams street and the portions in private 
land and Armandine street. This work has been repeatedly 
petitioned for, and is a much-needed improvement. 

The Oakland brook channel should be improved during 
the coming year between River street and the New York, 
New Haven & Hartford Railroad. 

On the Canterbury branch of Stony brook, between ( ial- 



116 City Document. No. 40. 

lender and Harvard streets, a covered channel should be 
built, as the improvements we have already made on the 
upper part of this brook will have no satisfactory outlet 
until this channel is built. 

A system of surface drains to empty into Tenean creek 
conduit should be built in Adams, Ashmont and Wrentham 
streets, as this will do away with takings through private 
land in this vicinity. 

Sewers should also be built in Wells avenue, Samoset 
street, Sampson street- and Everdean street and the outlet 
therefor. Petitions have also been received for sewers in 
numerous streets, the total cost of which will be about 
$50,000, many of these petitions being dated five or six years. 
ago. 

ROXBUEY. 

There have been built in this district during the past year 
'1,594.24 linear feet brick sewer, 9,382.05 linear feet pipe 
sewer, 1,058.20 linear feet brick surface drain, 2,631.76 
linear feet pipe surface drain, 49.53 linear feet wooden sur- 
face drain and 1,498.32 linear feet 8 and 6-inch pipe house 
drains, making a total of 16,214.10 linear feet, or 3.07 miles. 

The principal sewerage works. completed in the district are: 

Massachusetts avenue, between Magazine street and the 
railroad bridge. It became necessary to build here a long 
line of surface drain to take the surface water from this and 
adjoining streets, owing to the building operations in the 
vicinity requiring the use of land which was formerly used 
as an outlet for this storm water. 

Burnham, Southampton and Atkinson streets. This sys- 
tem of sewers, designed to drain the so-called Swett-street 
district, provides drainage for the smallpox hospital, the 
Veterinary hospital and other buildings on Atkinson street, 
and was completed this year. 

Smith street. Surface drain in Smith, Whitney and Tre- 
mont streets. 

Heath street, surface drain. This drain will relieve the 
Heath-street sewer, which has made trouble between South 
Huntington avenue and Huntington avenue, where the sewer 
has little pitch, and, being at the foot of the hill, got more 
water from up the hill than it would cany. 

Halleck street and Caldwell street. This sewer was built 
to relieve the Ira Allen School, at the same time to carry on 
the work of rebuilding the Halleck-street sewer, which is in 
very poor condition. 

Parker street, between Heath street and Fisher avenue. 



Street Department — Sewer Division. 117 

This sewer was very much needed to furnish an outlet for 
new catch-basins at Fisher avenue. It has been impossible 
to build catch-basins on this side of the hill, as there were no 
sewers to drain into. The rain falling on that side of the 
hill, not " being intercepted by catch-basins, found its way 
down Parker street, washing out the streets and backing up 
sewers at the foot of the hill. This sewer will be the outlet 
for the Fisher-avenue sewer when the latter is built. 

Queensberry street sewer and Jersey -street sewer are being 
built. 

Sewers have also been built in Atherton street, Copley 
street, Farnham street, Proctor street, Renfrew street and 
Seaver street, and the sewer in Humboldt avenue, all in 
ledge between Waumbeck and Harris hoff streets, has also 
been finished. 

Recommendations. 

Ruggles street district. Ruggles street sewer, being the 
main outlet for the entire Bower and Sherman streets drain- 
age area, is overtaxed in time of storm to such an extent 
that the flooding of cellars is a common occurrence along the 
whole line of the street and adjacent streets, such as War- 
wick street, Haskins street, Westminster street, Auburn 
street, and Shawmut avenue. The " Separate System " should 
be established in this district during the coming year to 
furnish relief to a long list of suffering residents. 

Hammond street district. Sanitary (or unsanitary) con- 
ditions here have reached a stage where it is useless to pro- 
vide any halfway measures of relief, and the ''Separate 
System" is earnestly recommended for Hammond street, 
Sussex street, Greenwich street, Winsor street, Arnold street, 
Ball street, and the portion of Shawmut avenue tributary to 
Hammond street. 

Elmwood street overflow. This is needed as a relief for 
the overcrowed trunk sewer which flows through this street 
and overflows into Stony brook. 

Fenner street surface drain. This is badly needed as a 
continuation of the Ruthven street drainage system. This 
system is completed between Humboldt avenue and Walnut 
avenue, at the corner of Cobden street, and should be carried 
down through private land and Fenner street to Washington 
street to relieve the flooding of cellars on Cobden street, 
which occurs after every heavy rain-storm. 

Willow park, between Westminster street and Shawmut 
avenue. This sewer, having been built on soft ground, has 



118 City Document No. 40. 

settled so badly that' the house drains are nearly all dis- 
connected from the main sewer, and the cellars are flooded to 
such an extent that many of these buildings are rendered 
untenantable. Nothing can be done in this street, however, 
until a satisfactory sewer is constructed in Ruggles street, 
as before indicated. 

Bower and Sherman street districts. This district has 
long been the source of a great deal of trouble and complaint, 
owing to the old dilapidated and utterly inadequate system 
of sewers. Numerous complaints reach this office after every 
heavy rain-storm, but we are powerless to offer the residents 
any relief until an entirely new system of sewers is con- 
structed. Work can and should be started in this district 
during the coming year. 

Warren street, between Brunswick and Intervale street. 
This is a small 15-inch pipe sewer on the line of the Dor- 
chester trunk sewer, and connects a 2-foot by 3-foot brick 
sewer near Intervale street with a 24-inch by 30-inch sewer 
near Brunswick street. It is the cause, in time of storm, of 
backing up the entire system of sewers in the vicinity of 
Waumbeck, Crawford, and Howland streets. 

Warren street, between Moreland street and Rockville 
park. This sewer should be built of larger size and greater 
depth to accommodate the houses in this neighborhood, the 
sewage from which now has to be raised by pumps in the 
possession of private parties. 

Cedar street, between Columbus avenue and Centre street. 
A surface drain should be built in this street to relieve the 
flooding which occurs after every heavy rain-storm, and take 
the water from the partial system of surface drains in the 
vicinity and deliver it to Stony brook channel in Columbus 
avenue. 

A system of surface drains must also be provided for the 
district around Quincy street, Holborn, Gaston, Gannett, and 
Otisfield streets. 

Vila street district. This matter was mentioned in last 
year's report, and although nothing has been done as yet 
there is a probability that sewers will be built in this district 
the coming year. 

Fenway lands. Surface drains are still discharging on to 
the private land, as mentioned in last year's report, but as 
sewers and drains in Jersey street are under consideration 
this may soon be remedied. 

Muddy river conduit. Nothing has been done to the old 
conduit. This matter was discussed in previous reports. 

Sewers should be built in the following streets : Fisher 
avenue, Halleck street (rebuilding). 



Street Department — Sewer Division. 119 



City Proper. 

There have been built in this district during the past year 
3,722.01 linear feet of pipe sewer, 3,158.80 linear feet of 
brick sewer, 538.76 linear feet of pipe surface drain, 172 
linear feet of 8-inch pipe, and 28 linear feet of 6-inch pipe 
house drains, making a total of 7,619.07 linear feet, or 1.44 
miles. 

The principal works completed are : 

Traverse street, between Canal and Portland streets. The 
old wooden sewer was removed and a deeper brick sewer 
built, which connects the sewer in Portland street with the 
Canal street relief sewer. 

Kneeland street, between Atlantic avenue and South street. 
This sewer will drain out the low sewer between South street 
and Utica street. 

Cotting and Wall streets. This sewer has been needed 
for a long time, the old sewer causing much trouble. 

Sewers have been rebuilt in — 

Pleasant street, between Tremont and Carver streets. . 

Thacher street, between Washington street north and 
Endicott street. 

Endicott street, between Thacher and Cooper streets. 

Elm street, between Washington street and Hanover 
street. 

Fleet street, between Commercial street and North street. 

North street, between Fleet street and Clark street, and 

Brighton street, between Chambers street and Milton 
street. 

State street. Sewers have been rebuilt by the Transit Com- 
mission between India street and Washington street. The 
old sewer between Commercial and India streets has been 
rebuilt by this division. 

Hanover street. A sewer has been built between the 
Canal street relief sewer in Cross street and the siphon at 
Washington street. The siphon was built under -the Wash- 
ington street subway by the Transit Commission and dis- 
charged into the Friend street sewer. On account of the 
grade of the Friend street sewer there was always seven feet 
of water in the down-stream manhole of the siphon. Hotels 
and restaurants connected with this system deliver large 
quantities of grease which collected in the siphon and made 
it necessary for this division to clean the siphon once each 
week. This has now been done away with, freeing the 
division from a constant expense and the danger of suits 



120 City Document No. 40. 

which would surely be instituted against the city if the 
grease were allowed to collect and plug the sewer. 

Recommendations. 

Church street district. This subject was discussed in last 
year's report, but nothing has been done. 

State street. The Canal street relief sewer ih Commercial 
street, where it crosses State street, has been settled and 
broken by the operation of driving the tunnel in State street. 
This should be repaired by the Transit Commission as soon 
as settlement has ceased. 

Norman street. The sewer is in the same condition as 
last year, but should be extended down the street until it 
will drain into the Norman street sewer. 

Beverly street overflow. An overflow is needed on this 
system, as mentioned in previous reports. 

Buckingham street. As mentioned in last year's report 
the sewer in this street is badly settled. It can be rebuilt to 
drain cellars at grade 12, but to drain cellars on the street 
that are at grade 8.5 will make it necessary to spend more 
money than is desirable. 

Sewers should be rebuilt in Salem street, North street, and 
Hale street. 

In the City Proper and Roxbury during the past year there 
have been approved 115 plans for private corporations. 

Main Drainage Works. 

This branch of the Sewer Division consists of the system 
of main and intercepting sewers which convey the sewage of 
the city to the discharge outlet at tide- water. Included

Pumping Station, Calf Pasture. 

The following repairs and alterations were made the past 
year: 

No. 1 and 2 pumps — Two new composition-faced valve 
frames were put in. 

Two new Bulkely condensers. 

New main steam pipe from old boilers. 

No. 3 and 4 pumps — Four new and improved slip joints 
have been put between horse-power cylinder and reheatera. 
Two mechanical lubricators have been put on this engine. 

The injection piping of No. 1 and 2 pumps is in course 



122 City Document No. 40. 

of construction, and all wrought- iron pipe will soon be 
eplaced by cast iron. 

In the old gate-house four new cages or screens have been 
installed, also the main gate on the north side has been 
replaced by a new gate. 

Three new return tubular boilers, built by Kendall & Sons, 
have been set up and are now in operation. They are 
installed in a new boiler-house, built of concrete and 
expanded metal, which was constructed for the purpose. 
The boilers are now operating the Leavitt engines and all the 
auxiliary machinery at the plant. 

These are the boilers that in last year's report it was sug- 
gested should be set up for the purpose of running the plant, 
while the old battery in the boiler-house was being replaced 
by a new one. A battery of six boilers, carrying a working 
pressure of 185 pounds, has been contracted for to replace 
the old ones, and are about ready for delivery. 

It having been decided to extend the main building on 
account of the installation of the new pump, a substantial 
foundation of piles, concrete, and stone has been put in on 
lines that will admit of completing the building as originally 
designed. The machine-shop has been removed from the 
engine-house to a temporary building erected for the pur- 
pose. This was necessary, as it occupied the place where 
the new pump is to be set up. All the foundations for the 
new pump are ready to receive it. The foundation for the 
outboard bearing is of stone and concrete on piles. 

A new iron railing has been built on the coal run to 
replace the wooden guards. 

All the outbuildings and fence have been painted, and a 
new tar and gravel roof put on the coal-sheds. A new drain 
pipe has been laid, connecting the stable with the sewer. A 
new automatic sewer gauge has been set up in the gate- 
house. New shaft, sprocket chains and gears have been put 
on sludge-carrying machine in the deposit sewer. 

The alterations and repairs necessary to receive the new 
boilers and new engine are now under way, and will have to 
be carried on until everything is completed and the boilers 
and engines are running. It will be necessary to put new 
well gates in this year and new gates on the discharge from 
the pumps. 

Mt. Vernon street, from Button wood street to the pump- 
ing station, should be macadamized and a substantial fence 
erected from the railroad to the station. The street is in a 
deplorable condition, and will continue to be so until it is 
ballasted. 



Street Department — Sewer Division. 123 



Lyons Street Pumping Station. 

The pumping station at Lyons street was thoroughly over- 
hauled the past season. The two belts have been renewed. 
Complete repairs have been made on the engine, including 
one new crank shaft, and all the pump bearings have been 
rebabbitted. The roof has been repaired around the smoke- 
stack, and the whole painted with fireproof paint. 

Moon Island. 

The general working of the system here has been very 
satisfactory. The contract for sea-wall, wharf extension, 
boat-house and grading was finished in the Spring. The 
gate-houses in general are in good condition, minor repairs 
having been made. The stable is not only in bad condition, 
but dangerous. A new stable and storehouse was asked for 
in last year's report, but nothing has been done towards con- 
structing it. The large barn in Squantum is also in an 
unsafe condition, although a large number of the post sup- 
ports have been renewed. The public have been kept out of 
the structure for fear of an accident. 

A sanitary for the use of the public has been built at 
Squantum. 

Repairs, such as the renewals of parts, changes from iron 
to composition, new stems, cross-heads, flanges, and bolts 
have been made to one- third of the gates in the long gate- 
house. The repairs on the remaining two-thirds of these 
gates should be completed the coming year. 

A new line of water pipes, with hydrants, should be 
installed at the reservoir for washing the side walls. The 
old pipes have become useless, and the cleaning of the side 
walls cannot be done until the new pipes are laid. The gates 
at the outlet gate-house, together with gearing, pinions, and 
regular gears, must be repaired and a number of parts 
renewed, and it would be advisable to change the present 
method of operating the gates and work them by compressed 
air. Immediate attention should be given to this matter, as 
the working parts are in a very bad condition. 

A connection from the Boston water main should be made 
at the connection chamber for flushing and cleaning purposes. 

The rip-rap on the west side of the embankment for one 
thousand feet should be relaid as the ballast has washed out 
and there is danger to some parts of the embankment. 

The roadway from Squantum to Moon Island is low, 
caused by settlement, washing from heavy rains, high winds, 



124 City Document No. 40. 

etc., and should be raised. During the winter months this 
road is in bad condition, and it should be surfaced with 
ballast, crushed stone, or a good depth of gravel and rolled. 

The sea-wall or rip-rap should be extended around the 
Moon Head at the top of the beach for protection to the hill 
which is gradually wearing away. 

The outlet gate-house needs pointing and some minor 
repairs. 

The average daily amount of sewage received at the 
reservoir, Moon Island, from the Pumping station from 
January 31, 1902, to February 1, 1903, was 88,480,680 
gallons. 

Stony Brook. 

The work for this year commenced in Brookside avenue 
and in private land, and extends to a point forty-five feet 
south of Green street in private land. 

The size of the conduit is 15| feet by 17 feet to the north- 
erly line of Green street, and from this point it enlarges to 
15f feet by 20 feet, this latter size to be carried to Forest 
Hills. The dimensions have been increased owing to a 
flatter gradient. The Brookside avenue quicksand was 
encountered, which considerably increased the cost of con- 
struction and made the progress necessarily slow. This 
material was handled by driving 5-inch tongued and grooved 
sheeting with a pile driver. The trench was bulkheaded in 
40-foot sections to make a water-tight compartment, the 
sheeting was driven from 8 to 10 feet below grade and 
the quicksand excavated about 3 feet below the grade of the 
invert. A 6-inch underdrain was laid on the centre line, and 
lateral drains of gravel were put in from the sheeting to the 
centre. From 6 to 8 inches of gravel was spread over the 
whole bottom, and from 18 to 20 inches of concrete laid on 
top of this. The side walls of rubble masonry were carried 
up to within 2 feet of the crown of the arch. Though the 
use of 5-inch sheeting was an expensive item, it was con- 
clusively proven that this method of confining the quicksand 
more than compensated for the outlay. In using this larger 
size sheeting a trench was carried within 10 feet of a 4-story 
brick building without the slightest damage whatever. Fol- 
lowing the old method it would have been necessary to support 
these buildings, and estimates from those competent to do 
this work were so high that the method adopted has proven 
the most economical under the conditions. 

The first interruption of work occurred in February, and 
was caused by a heavy snow-storm, the men being put on the 



Street Department — Sewer Division. 125 

street-cleaning force. The second delay was caused by the 
severe rain-storm of March 1. The flood was so great this 
day that it broke through a bulkhead into the trench, under- 
mined and damaged several buildings, and broke down the 
gas and water pipes ; this was the most serious damage done 
in many years on this work. 

The next delay occurred, from May 8, until June 23, to 
determine the line ahead. 

The 15| foot by 17 foot, the 9 foot by 9 foot 6 inches, and 
15| foot by 20-foot conduits meet in Green street, forming 
a bell-mouth. In building the bell-mouth across Green street, 
this street, which is amain thoroughfare, had to be closed. It 
was necessary here to overcome a great many obstacles, — all 
traffic had to be conducted through private land and over a 
bridge thrown across the brook to Bartlett place. The 36-inch 
by 38-inch brick sewer had to be flumed around on the north- 
erly side of the street, and the water and gas pipes and the 
tel-phone conduits had to be carried on the same side. 

Several routes south of Green street have been investigated, 
but the most feasible is that which follows the line of the old 
biook, enters Keyes place, and thence to Washington street. 
Beyond Washington street to Forest Hills it now seems ad- 
visable to follow the old line of the brook, this line offering 
fewer chances for suits for damages than the route which 
follows Washington street. 

An appropriation sufficient to cany this work to Forest 
Hills should be immediately obtained. The foul odors 
arising from the brook bed, the demands of the district, and 
the inci eased cost of construction by small yearly appropria- 
tions, offer the best reasons why this channel should be com- 
pleted at once. If part of this work could be let out by 
contract it would be possible to finish it in one and one-half 
years. 

The amount of construction for the year is as follows : 

297 linear feet, 15 § by 17 feet, brick conduit. 

tO " " Reducer, " " 

40 " " 15| by 20 ' " 

65 " " 9 by 9 " 6 in. a " 

377 " " 2 by 3£ " brick sewer. 

Entrance Fees, Permits and Assessments. 

Entrance fees to the amount of $5,515.62 have been col- 
lected from estates upon which no sewer assessment was ever 
paid, in accordance with chapter 38, section 10, of the 
Revised Ordinances of 1898. 



126 City Document No. 40. 

Bills for sewer assessments, amounting to $2,417.03, have 
been deposited for collection, representing those estates 
assessed under chapter 456 of the Acts of 1889, and amend- 
ments thereto, which have been connected during the year 
with the sewers for which they were assessed. 

One thousand seven hundred and seventy (1,770) permits 
have been issued to licensed drain-layers to make connections 
with the public sewers, and the work done under these per- 
mits has been inspected, and a record of the same made on 
the plans of this division, in accordance with the pro- 
visions of chapter 38, sections 6 and 10, of the Revised 
Ordinances of 1898. 

Eight hundred and eighty-two (882) permits have been 
issued to district foremen and contractors for construction 
and repairs of sewers and catch-basins. 

Plans for the assessment of estates benefited by sewer 
construction have been furnished the Street Commissioners, 
representing 31,286 feet of sewers, costing $182,537.07. 

Respectfully, 

George Phillips, 

Deputy Superintendent.

APPENDIX F. 



REPORT OF THE DEPUTY SUPERINTENDENT OF THE 
STREET CLEANING DIVISION. 



921, 922, 923 Tkemont Building, 
Boston, February 1, 1903. 

Hon. James Donovan, 

Superintendent of Streets : 

Dear Sir, — Following is the report of the Street Clean- 
ing Division of the Street Department for the year ending 
January 31, 1903 : 

Expense. 

The expenditures of the year show an increase over those 
of any previous year in the history of this division. This 
increase is not attributable, solely, to extraordinary expenses, 
but is almost the direct result of the natural expansion 
of the sweeping district this division is obliged to cover. 
To quote from the message of his Honor the Mayor, 
accompanying the current year's appropriation bill, these 
expenses are " in the nature of fixed charges and do not per- 
mit of reductions without detriment to the public service " ; 
and, again, these " fixed charges increase each year by a small 
percentage in proportion to the growth of the city." 

Hence the annual appeal made by this division for a more 
liberal appropriation. 

Extraordinary Expenses. 

If there have been any unusual or unlooked for expenses 
during the year, prominent mention must be made of the 
stable in South Boston, which had been leased, about a month 
previous to the incoming of the present administration, for a 
term of five years at a rental of $900 per year. This stable 
was found to be in a most dilapidated condition — unsafe, 



134 City Document No. 40. 

unfit, unsanitary — and, although over $3,000 have been 
spent upon it to make it serve its purpose, it is still and will 
continue to be a source of much expense to this division. 
What may also be classed as an extraordinary expense is the 
high price we had to pay during the year for hay and 
grain. For this item alone it cost this division over $6,000 
more than for the previous year. 

The coal strike, whose resultant distressful features are 
still an occasion for calls upon our service, was an additional 
and unprovided for expenditure. Over $1,200 have been 
spent carting coal to relieve the public distress ; and this was 
done, of course, to the prejudice of the regular work of the 
division. This distress continues and the streets are neg- 
lected that we may relieve it, yet the public complains. In 
connection with the subject of extraordinary expenditure, it 
must be stated that the cost of the 

Snow Work 

of this division is out of all proportion to the provisions made 
for it. In fact, there has been no provision made for it ; and 
it is earnestly recommended that, when the Committee on 
Appropriations is considering the needs of this division, 
a certain sum for snow work be appropriated or the amount 
allowed for general maintenance be materially increased. 

Stables. 

Attention has been called in previous years to the cramped 
quarters allotted this division for its live and its rolling 
stock. Provision was made in the last loan bill for the im- 
provement of the West End and Charlestown stables. Some 
arrangement must soon be made to care for the horses, carts, 
and sweeping machines in Roxbury, where there is hardly 
room for an extra horse, and where the rolling stock is often 
exposed to rain and snow for lack of space to shelter it. 

Stock. 

Many of the horses of this division are no longer able to 
do the work rsquired of them, being old, diseased, or crippled. 
As a matter of record, about twenty of them have been offi- 
cially condemned and ordered to be shot, and, although the 
order for good reasons has not yet been carried into effect, it 
is only a question of a short time when it must be done. The 
carts might be characterized in the same way, very many of 



Street Department — Street Cleaning Division. 135 

tliem not being worth the cost of repairing. A recommenda- 
tion was made last year to purchase a number of carts, but 
not a cart has been added to the stock. They have been 
repaired over and over again, but it would be in the line of 
economy to replace them with new ones. The sweeping 
machines are in fair condition. 



Paper Litter. 

This continues to be the most vexing problem confronting 
this division, and it is simply repeating- the experience and 
recommendation of previous years to state, that the remedy 
is outside the Street Department. There is certainly law 
enough to prevent this littering of the streets by store- 
keepers, tenants, and the general public. If the earnest 
and practical co-operation of the Police Department could 
be secured, this nuisance could and would be, at least, min- 
imized, if not entirely prevented. 

Push-cart Work. 

In line with this subject of paper litter must be recognized 
the work of the patrol system or push-cart force. If this 
service were discontinued the work of our machine sweeping 
gangs would never satisfy the public. When the weather 
permits (nine months in the year or more) all the down-town 
districts, and much of the up-town sections of the city are 
machine-swept during the night ; but, if this work were not 
followed up during the day by the push-cart men, these same 
streets, which were swept the night before, would present 
a very unsightly appearance, even in the early hours of 
the day. 

Too much credit cannot be given to this branch of the 
division ; it has expanded from year to year, and it should 
continue to do so. Every deputy, recognizing its service, 
has recommended its extension, and it is herein advocated 
that it should be added to in proportion to the growth of at 
least the paved area of the city. 

Slippery Pavements. 

The work of sanding asphalt streets has been done under 
the supervision of the patrol system. The one sanding 
machine in use is not capable of sanding all the asphalt 
streets of the city, and, if it is the intention of this depart- 



136 City Document No. 40. 

merit to furnish adequate service in this respect, the equip- 
ment should be added to and the force increased. 

Dumps. 

Provision must soon be made for more dumping places. 
The low lands in most of the suburban districts are rap- 
idly rilling up. Back Bay will soon be without a single 
dumping lot. The single scow at Fort Hill Wharf, to 
which all of the down-town sweepings are carted, is 
inadequate. 

A suitable and available place for another scow would be 
at the city wharf on Albany street, and another at Charles 
River avenue bridge — a very convenient place for the North 
End, West End and Charlestown gangs. 

Sidewalks around Public Squares. 

An attempt was made during the present winter to trans- 
fer the care of the sidewalks around public squares, particu- 
larly those of the Common and Public Gardens, to the Public 
Grounds Department. For some years this division had been 
burdened with the care and cost of keeping these sidewalks 
clear of snow and ice. Custom, or rather it seems because 
the other department had not the money to pay for the work, 
was the reason alleged for putting these sidewalks under the 
care of the Street Department. If the custom is to be pre- 
served, a special appropriation should be made to warrant 
it. The streets in the vicinity of these public grounds are 
neglected in consequence of the time spent on the sidewalks. 

In any event it may be intimated that an arrangement 
might be made between the Public Grounds Department and 
this division that would be mutually satisfactory. It is not 
so under existing conditions. 

Public Alleys. 

It is no exaggeration to state that, relatively, more com- 
plaints have come from the public alleys, particularly those 
in the Back Bay, than are heard or received from the abutters 
of our main thoroughfares and ordinary business or residential 
streets. The people who complain are often blamable in the 
matter, but they do, nevertheless, insist upon better service. 
These alleys are cleaned once a week. To do them oftener 
will necessitate either a special gang of men or a considerable 
addition to the force of the Back Bay District. 



Street Department — Street Cleaning Division. 137 

New Districts. 

It was expected that there would be a sweeping gang of 
this division established early in the year in Dorchester, but 
the hope is still unrealized. The Paving Division, which 
does the street cleaning of this territory, has called upon our 
South End and South Boston gangs to go out there and 
sweep its main thoroughfares, as it has neither the men nor 
the equipment to do the work. Of course, South End and 
South Boston are meantime neglected. The same may be 
said of Brighton. The Back Bay gang gives it a spring and 
fall cleaning, but always at the expense of its own district. 

Provision should be made at the earliest possible moment 
for the establishment of a permanent street cleaning force in 
the suburban districts, to the end that the residents may 
have the same service as those of the Back Bay district. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Joseph J. Norton, 

Deputy Superintendent.

APPENDIX G. 

REPORT OF THE DEPUTY SUPERINTENDENT OF 
THE STREET WATERING DIVISION. 



904-905 Tremont Building, 

Boston, February 1, 1903. 

Hon. James Donovan, 

Superintendent of Streets : 

Dear Sir, — I respectfully submit the annual report of 
the Street Watering Division of the Street Department for 
the financial year ending January 31, 1903. 

All public streets were watered at an expense of 
$160,147.25, paid for from the general tax levy. 

The season opened March 24, and continued until Novem- 
ber 30, but watering was done on February 12, 15 and 16. 
It was in the main a wet season, although there were many 
dry, windy days, difficult periods to keep dust down. 

The service gave general satisfaction to the citizens of 
every section of the city. The number of wettings given 
the streets daily were as follows: Four to six in the 
Back Bay District, four in the South End and City Proper, 
three and four on the main thoroughfares of the outlying 
sections and two on all others. The street mileage was 
increased five miles by new streets, and two additional carts 
were employed. 

Attention is directed to the figures which show the tre- 
mendous amount of fresh water used by the division. Taken 
with the amount used by the Park, Fire and other depart- 
ments, it seems proper at this time to suggest the use of salt 
water for street watering purposes, as its superiority over 
fresh water for this work is well known. 

The sum of $160,000 is inadequate for a service which 
contemplates watering in the open weather of the winter 
months as well as in the strict watering season. Such a sum 
provides for no extension of the service beyond the present 



144 



City Document No. 40. 



limits, nor is it enough to properly water our streets under ordi- 
nary conditions. In fact, it is only possible under favorable 
weather conditions to water 465 miles of streets in the 
manner of the past for the sum appropriated. It may 
seem unnecessary to urge the matter so often, but 
interest in a service which has been specialized and improved 
until it has no equal of its kind anywhere compels the 
reiteration. • An increase in the appropriation should be 
made to meet the requirements of the weather conditions 
during the entire year. 

The force employed was one deputy superintendent, one 
chief clerk, one clerk, one driver, and twenty-one bicycle 
tallymen. 

The division is indebted to Mr. J. W. Smith, local fore- 
cast official, for daily weather reports. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Ambrose Woods, 

Deputy Superintendent.

Boston and Cambridge Bridges. 147 



APPENDIX H. 



REPORT OF THE COMMISSIONERS FOR THE BOSTON 
AND' CAMBRIDGE BRIDGES. 



Cambridge-street Bridge. 

The deck of bridge was repaired by putting down four-inch 
plank, and the bridge and draw sheathed with two-inch 
spruce plank. The fences on the bridge and draw, the draw- 
posts and the houses on the draw-piers have been painted. 

This work was done by the drawtenders. They also 
sweep bridge and piers and keep them free from snow and 
ice and do ordinary repairs. 

The drawtenders on this bridge also do the work on 
Western-avenue bridge. 

Canal or Craigie Bridge. 

On the Cambridge end of the bridge the sidewalk was re- 
paired by putting in two-inch spruce plank and replacing the 
brick ; the house was shingled and repaired, and the paving 
on the roadway was repaired from the draw to the Cambridge 
end of the bridge. 

On the Boston side, down-stream, a new sidewalk was 
built for the whole length ; the old timbers and planking that 
were very much decayed were taken out and replaced by new 
hard-pine timber and hard-pine flooring ; the edgestones were 
reset and the walks paved with new brick. The roadway 
was repaired for the whole length. 

The guard on the Cambridge side to protect the bridge 
from damage by vessels colliding with it had to be rebuilt. 
Oak piles were driven and capped with hard-pine timbers 
and braced securely to piles connected with the bridge. The 
draw-piers were repaired and the small house on the pier 
shingled. 

The draw is in very bad condition; it has been repaired as 
required with new hard-pine timbers and planking. The 
draw is old, and it should be thoroughly overhauled. There 
is more teaming over this bridge than over any other bridge 
in Boston, and it has to be watched very closely. A new 



148 City Document No. 40. 

and wider bridge should be built to take the place of this old 
structure. 

The drawtenders employed sweep the sidewalks and keep 
them free from snow and ice in winter time, and do all ordi- 
nary repairs. 

Essex-street Bridge. 

Almost the entire surface of the roadway was sheathed, 
and four-inch spruce plank put in where necessary. The 
draw and sidewalk were repaired. 

The fences for the entire length of the bridge, and the 
houses on the draw-pier have been painted. This work was 
done by the drawtenders. They also sweep the bridge once 
a week in summer and keep the sidewalks free from snow 
and ice in winter, and do other ordinary repairs. 

A petition has been sent to the City Council by citizens 
living in the vicinity of this bridge asking that permission 
be granted the Boston Elevated Railway Company to put 
two tracks over the bridge to connect with the tracks on 
Commonwealth avenue in Boston, and no doubt it would be 
a great convenience to the public. To make the bridge safe 
for that purpose would require a large outlay, and whether 
it would be advisable at the present time to do this work or 
wait till the two cities are in condition to build an overhead 
bridge, wider than the present structure, is a question. It 
seems to me the time will soon come when the new overhead 
bridge will have to be built. The repairs necessary to make 
the present bridge safe for the cars to go over would cost in 
the vicinity of $17,000, and after making the repairs the 
bridge would be narrow, and not suitable for the traffic going 
over it. 

Harvard Bridge. 

At the date of the last year's report the paving of the 
roadway with wooden blocks had not been completed on 
account of the stormy weather and the lateness of the 
season, which made it necessary to wait till this year before 
completing the work. This spring the work was finished, 
and the pavement has proved to be a great improvement 
over the old plank surface. It is even, and the yearly renewal 
and constant patching of the surface is avoided. 

The deck of the draw should be reconstructed, as it is 
getting out of shape. 

The sidewalks for the entire length of the bridge should 
be replaced with hard-pine plank. The present asphalt side- 
walk is in very bad condition, it is badly broken and the 



Boston and Cambridge Bridges. 149 

planking under it is decayed. It was patched last year to 
make it safe. 

The surface of the draw-pier is in poor condition, and 
ought to be replanked at once. We have repaired the cap- 
ping this year and made some repairs to piers to make them 
safe. 

The drawtenclers' house was painted outside and inside 
with two coats of paint, the work being done by the draw- 
tenders. The men have also made quite a lot of other repairs. 

The iron fence should be painted this next near. 

The incandescent lights are satisfactery, and the effect of 
the illumination at night is far better than that of any of the 
bridges in the vicinity of Boston and Cambridge. The draw- 
tenders clean the electric light globes, see to keeping the 
sidewalks free from snow and ice in winter, and do all ordi- 
nary repairs. 

The traffic over the bridge is increasing every year. 

The expenditures by the City of Boston on account of 
wood block paving, etc., were as follows : 

United States Wood Preserving Company, 

wood block paving . . . . . $25,550 67 

Geo. McQuesten & Co., lumber . . . 1,011 64 

A. A. Libbey & Co., labor .... 471 08 



126,933 39 



On account of the paving and repairs to its track location 
the Boston Elevated Railway Company paid to the City of 
Boston the sum of $3,131.26. 

North Harvard Bridge. 

The fence on the draw was repaired by putting on new 
rails ; the bridge and draw were sheathed with two-inch 
spruce plank, and other repairs made. 

The fences for the entire length, the draw, draw-posts, 
and the houses on the piers were painted. This work was 
done by the drawtenclers. They also do all ordinary repairs, 
sweeping bridge and draw, and cleaning snow and ice from 
bridge and piers. 

Prison Point Bridge. 

The iron girders under the draw were in bad condition, 
broken and twisted in such a \v,\y .that it was impossible to 
repair them, and to put in new ones would have cost a large 
sum of money. It was not thought wise to expend much 
for repairs at the present time, as it is soon to be replaced. 



150 City Document No. 40. 

To relieve the draw and to limit the weight going over it, 
the roadwa}'" was narrowed by building sidewalks two feet 
six inches wide. If this had not been done we should have 
had to close the bridge to travel. 

Some of the timbers under the bridge supporting the 
roadway were so much decayed at the ends they had to be 
pieced out with new hard-pine timber, and other timbers had 
to be blocked up. Iron rods were put through the girders 
to keep them in place. This work was done from float 
staging under the bridge. Four-inch plank were put on the 
bridge and draw, and all sheathed with two-inch spruce 
plank. 

The Boston & Maine Railroad Company are now driving 
piles to support a temporarj' bridge across the river and will 
build a draw to take the place of the old one. After crossing 
the river they will build a temporary overhead street to 
Bridge street in Cambridge. The railroad company are 
doing this so as not to stop travel while building the perma- 
nent overhead structure on the line of the present street 
leading from Cambridge to Charlestown, which, when 
completed, will be a great benefit to the public and do away 
with a most dangerous place, and prevent the present great 
delay while the street is closed by trains passing over it. 

In addition to the repairs mentioned above there has been 
a number of other repairs made to make the bridge and draw 
safe for travel. 

The drawtenders sweep the bridge and clean off snow and 
ice. 

Western-avenue Bridge. 

On the Boston side, the deck of the bridge and draw was 
repaired with four-inch spruce plank and sheathed with two- 
inch spruce plank ; new flaps to draw were built, and the fence 
on the draw was repaired by putting in new rails. The 
capping and surface of the down-stream pier was so much 
decayed that it was deemed best to put in new timber and 
plank to protect it and make it secure. 

The fences, the draw-posts and the houses on the pier 
were painted. This work was done by the drawtenders. 

The drawtenders also do the cleaning and ordinary repair 
work. 

West Boston Temporary Bridge. 

The traffic on this bridge is increasing, making it neces- 
sasy to replank it every year. The flaps of the draw were 
repaired and new hinges placed on them. 



Boston and Cambridge Bridges. 



151 



The drawtenders sweep the sidewalk in summer and keep 
it free from snow and ice in winter, and do all ordinary 
repairs. 

The new Cambridge bridge will be completed in about 
three years. When completed it will be the finest structure 
in the United States. 



In General. 

The usual statement is appended showing the number of 
draw openings, and the number of vessels which passed 
through. 

The amount of revenue for rents, dockage, etc., during 
the year has been $805, one-half of which has been paid to 
each city. 

The following is a statement of the payments made by the 
City of Boston on account of the Boston and Cambridge 
bridges from February 1, 1902, to January 31, 1903:

APPENDIX I. 



City of Boston, Engineering Department, 

50 City Hall, February 1, 1903. 

Hon. James Donovan, 

Superintendent of Streets : 

Sir, — I herewith submit the following report of the work 
done for the Street Department during the year ending 
January 1, 1903 : 

Brooks Street, Ward 25. 

The work of building the retaining walls on each side of 
the depressed portion of the street, under the contract with 
John F. McBride and Jesse Moulton, dated July 2, 1901, 
was completed on May 20, 1902, at a cost of $24,444.17. 

The American Bridge Company, under its contract dated 
November 22, 1901, completed the steel work for the bridge 
over the depressed roadway at the ends of the side roadways 
in April, for which it was paid $2,800. 

The concrete and asphalt floor of this bridge was laid by 
the Boston Asphalt Company, under a contract dated April 
28, 1902, at a cost of $750. The work was completed on 
May 13. 

Railings were built on the bridge and retaining walls by 
W. A. Snow & Co., under a contract dated April 5, 1902, at 
a cost of $1,277. The work was finished on August 2. 

Carleton Street, Retaining Wall. 

The work of building, a retaining wall along the westerly 
side line of Carleton street, adjoining the tracks of the 
Providence Division of the New York, New Haven & Hart- 
ford Railroad, between Yarmouth and West Newton streets, 
has been prosecuted during the year, and the entire wall was 
completed about October 10, 1902. 

The work was done under a contract with John Cashman, 
dated October 19, 1901. 

The portion of the wall as built between Yarmouth street 
and Berwick park has a pile and concrete foundation, the 



Street Department — Engineering Division. 155 

exposed face of the foundation towards the railroad tracks 
being of granite. Above the foundation the wall is of brick 
masonry 12 inches thick, with pilasters 16 inches square 
every six feet. Where this wall supports any portion of the 
street it is backed up with Portland cement concrete. The 
foundation for the whole wall was designed and built of such 
dimensions that it will support a wall of sufficient thickness 
to maintain the street if it should ever be rilled to the grade 
of the adjoining streets. The brick wall is capped with an 
artificial stone coping, and an artificial stone curb is built for 
the entire length of the wall. 

The portion of the wall between Berwick park and West 
Newton street is built of granite, and rests on a pile and 
concrete foundation. The wall has a granite coping, the 
back of which serves for the street curb. The wall for its 
entire length has a wooden fence supported by iron standards 
set in the granite or artificial stone coping. 

Columbia Road Bridges over Shoreham Street and 
N. Y., N. H. & H. R.R, 

The flooring and surfaces of the bridges have been built 
with the exception of the asphalt sidewalk on the bridge 
over the railroad ; this is under contract and will be laid 
early in the summer.

APPENDIX J. 



REPORT OF THE CHIEF SMOKE INSPECTOR. 



64 Pembektok Square, 

Boston, February 1, 1903. 

Hon. James Donovan, 

Superintendent of Streets : 

Dear Sir, — I herewith submit a report of the work per- 
formed by the office under my charge for your consideration. 
During the first half of the year, under normal conditions, 
the results' of the labors of the employees of the office were 
satisfactory to the public. I arrive at this conclusion owing 
to the small number of complaints made. Absolute free- 
dom from the smoke nuisance is, of course, an impossibility, 
under the present law. From the constant observations of 
this office I can state that the laws under which we work 
are being observed generally. Wherever by observation or 
complaint, reason to find fault with the conditions in any 
plant obtained, a personal interview with the owner, always 
resulted in a desire on his part to co-operate in the abate- 
ment of the nuisance. 

During the latter part of the year conditions arose in the 
coal supply which made it impossible to secure results as 
satisfactory as formerly prevailed. Complaints were numer- 
ous and a strict enforcement of the laws would be an impos- 
sibility, or an attempt in that direction a hardship or injustice. 
P^fforts were accordingly directed to securing the best results 
under these conditions. We were constantly on the move, 
observing conditions, conferring with engineers and firemen, 
or offering suggestions, that the best results might be 
obtained. We are now entering upon another year with the 
conditions approaching the normal. The period over which 
we have just passed has been the means of informing the 



164

public more fully as to the requirements and purposes of the 
law. The results clearly show the desirability of their 
enforcement.
