For detailed account of expenditures, condition of water

Outside of the general work incident to the maintenance, 
of the department a 36-inch main has been laid from Wash- 
ington street at Boylston street to Post Office square at 
Milk and Congress streets, via Essex, Kingston, Otis, Frank- 
lin and Congress streets, and a continuation of this line 
with 24-inch pipe through Post Office square and Water 
street to Washington street to take the place of the 24-inch 
low service main in Washington street which had to be 
abandoned on account of the building of the Washington 
street subway. 

During the year a tunnel has been constructed for a large 
water main across Fort Point channel to augment the water 
supply to that part of the business section of the city on the 
south side of said channel, one object of this tunnel line 
being to furnish an adequate supply of water for fire protec- 
tion to a section which has grown very rapidly within the 
past few years, consequently greatly increasing the fire risk.

REPORT OF THE ENGINEER. 



City of Boston, 
Engineeking Department, 
50 City Hall, January 31, 1905. 

E. S. Sullivan, Esq. 

Water Commissioner : 

Dear Sir, — The following is some of the most impor- 
tant work done during the past year : 

The construction of the Stony Brook conduit in Charles- 
gate East made it necessary to abandon 300 feet of 48-inch 
main, which crossed the conduit location immediately north 
of Commonwealth avenue bridge, under the outlet channel 
of the Back Bay Fens; the main was relocated over the 
bridge, and reduced for a distance of 118 feet, within the 
limits of bridge and conduit, to a 36-inch pipe. 

Owing to the proposed subway construction in Washing- 
ton street it was considered inadvisable to attempt to main- 
tain the 24-inch L. S. main in that street between Boylston 
and AVater streets. A 36-inch main was therefore laicl from 
Washington street at Boylston to Milk street, via Essex, 
Kingston, Otis, Devonshire, Franklin and Congress streets; 
thence a 24-inch main via Post Office square and Water 
street was laid and connected with the existing 24-inch main 
in Washington street at Water street ; connections with these 
new mains were made on Essex street at Oxford street, on 
Bedford street, on Franklin street, on Milk street and on 
Water street; 30-inch branches were established at Congress 
street for the proposed extension to South Boston and at 
Milk street for the proposed extension northerly. A total 
curvature of 630° was made in 2,974 lineal feet of the 36-inch 
pipe, using 18 one-sixteenth and 20 one-thirty-second curves; 
in 524 feet of 24-inch pipe the total curvature was 607° 30'. 
and 6 one-eighth and 15 one-sixteenth bends were used. 
The work was done by the regular force of the Water 
Department, and was necessarily slow and expensive, as 
obstacles were continually encountered: for a large part of 
the distance, particularly at street crossings, the location 
of so large a pipe virtually meant the reconstruction of 
existing systems of conduits, water and gas pipes, electric 
tubes, sewers, etc. The location of this main is through the 



Water Department. 65 

centre of the Low Service business district, making it pos- 
sible to develop the distribution system in that territory to 
the best advantage. 

The 30-inch H. S. main in Washington street, Dorchester, 
was extended from Fairmount street to Codman street, 
thence a 20-inch main was laid in Codman street to Dorches- 
ter avenue and connected with the 12-inch H. S. pipe at that 
point. 

The following work was done for the improvement of the 
fire service : 

1,327 feet 16-inch pipe laid, replacing 12-inch. 
12,562 " 12-inch " " " 8-inch, 6-inch and 4-inch. 

4,154 " 10-inch '' " " 6-inch and 4-inch. 

3,438 '' 8-inch " " " 6 -inch and 4-inch. 

The first step was taken during the past year towards fur- 
nishing an improved L. S. and H. S. supply to South Boston 
flats by the construction of a tunnel under Fort Point chan- 
nel, immediately south of Congress street bridge. The tunnel 
is of brick, in the form of an inverted siphon, to carry a 
30-inch L. S. and a 24-inch H. S. water pipe. The 
shafts are 7i feet in diameter with brick walls 16 
inches thick ; they are enclosed in a steel cylinder i inch 
thick, from their top to a point about 20 feet below the 
bottom of the channel, and are protected by substantial cir- 
cular fenders. The horizontal portion of the tunnel, 119 feet 
long, is circular, 8 feet in diameter, and is lined with 12-inch 
brickwork; its top is at grade — 38, the present bottom of 
channel being grade — 18, and the proposed grade for future 
dredging being — 23. The material excavated was stiff blue 
clay with sand seams ; the work was done under air pressure. 

The thawing of frozen service pipes by electricity was 
successfully continued during the past winter. 

The work of electrical investigation has been carried on 
throughout the year. In addition to surveys made to deter- 
mine the difference of potential between pipe and rails, 
twenty-nine " permanent stations " have been established for 
measuring approximately the actual flow of electricity upon 
the pipes. These "stations" are made by inserting brass 
plugs 10 feet apart into a water pipe, and from the plugs No. 
10 insulated wire is brought to the surface of the ground. 
The difference of potential at the ends of the wires is deter- 
mined, and the approximate flow on the pipe is estimated, 
the resistance per pound per foot of cast-iron water pipe hav- 
ing been previously determined by experiment. A number 



66 City Document No. 43. 

of test pits have been dug and many volt-meter and ammeter 
readings have been taken in other excavations ; the actual 
condition of pipes examined has been carefully noted, plaster 
casts and photographs being made in many cases. 

Damage is being done to the water pipes by electrolysis, 
notably in the vicinity of the large power stations of the 
Boston Elevated Railway. 

Respectfully submitted, 

William Jackson, 

Cit^ Engineer.
