The abatements allowed on account of 1905 assesenients/amoiinting to $17,784.78, 
were due to changes in occupancy of premises, changes in ownership, vacancies, 
errors in valuations and assessments, inaccuracy of meters as proved by tests, and 
for other reasons which, in the judgment of the General Superintendent, entitled the 
water-taker to consideration. 

The abatements on account of years 1901, 1902, 1903 and 1904 were due to bills 
uncollectible, changes of ownership, failures, shut-olf for non-payment and cleaning 
up of old accounts.

REPORT OF THE ENGINEER. 



City of Boston, 
Engineering Department, 

City Hall, March 1, 1900. 

WiLLTAivi J. Welch, Esq., 

Water Commissioner : 

Dear Sir, — I herewith submit a report of the most 
important work done under the supervision of the Engineer- 
ing Department during the past year. The policy of pro- 
viding permanent, accessible structures in which to carry 
water pipes under navigable channels was continued. Owing 
to the proposed widening of the draw of Dover-street bridge 
it became necessary to abandon the 24-incli low service 
and 16-inch high service siphons at that point; and to 
replace them a brick conduit was built south of the old 
location with a distance of 100 feet between the centres of 
its shafts; its horizontal portion is circular, 8 feet in diameter 
in the clear, with 12-inch brick walls, and with its top at 
grade — 35, the present bottom of channel being at grade — 18 ; 
the shafts, extending upwards at each side of draw opening 
to grade — 15.5, are circular, 7 feet 4 inches in diameter in the 
clear, with 16-inch brick walls inclosed in a steel cylinder 
i inch thick from their top to a point about 10 feet below 
surface of ground ; to prevent injury from impact of passing 
vessels, fenders were built around the shafts. The work was 
done by means of compressed air, the excavated material 
being rather soft blue clay with sand seams ; 20-inch low ser- 
vice and 16-inch high service pipes were laid in the conduit 
and the old siphons were abandoned. A conduit was also 
built in tunnel in Charlestown, extending from the jMystic 
playground under the south channel of Mystic river to the 
Boston & Maine railroad property, a distance of 567 feet ; it is 
circular in form, 7 feet in diameter, with 12-inch brick walls ; 
the top of brick work under the channel is at grade — 39, the 
bottom of channel being at grade — 17.5. The excavation was 
made in rather stiff blue clay with sand seams and occasional 
boulders, except for a distance of about 100 feet wdiere sand, 
gravel and loose stones were encountered ; air pressure was 



70 City Document No. 43. 

used throughout the work. A 30-mch pipe was laid in the 
conduit connecting at the northerly end with 24-inch and 
30-inch mains, and extending, at the southerly end, through 
the Mystic playground to a connection at Scott's court with 
the 20-inch and 24-inch mains in Chelsea street, a distance 
of 1,015 feet. The completion of this work ensures, under 
ordinary circumstances, a sufficient service for the large 
interests situated between the north and south channels of 
Mystic river; the old mains, crossing the channel, wdiich 
were abandoned, have for several years past been a cause for 
anxiety, as they were seriously weakened by the effect of salt 
water and one of them had twice been put out of service by 
frost. 

The work of relaying the Tremont-street low service main 
was continued, 860 feet of pipe southerly from Northampton 
street being relaid. . 

On Southampton street the 24-inch steel pipe, crossing the 
second waterwaj^ easterly from Magazine street, was replaced 
with 30-incli cast-iron pipe supported on piles. 

A large amount of miscellaneous work was done in con- 
nection with the construction of the subway in Washington 
street ; the connection over the subway between the 36-inch 
main laid in Essex street in 1904 and the 30-inch main in 
Boylston street, was made with 30-inch cast-iron flanged pipe, 
jointed with rubber gaskets ; in a distance of 76 feet a curva- 
ture of 166 degrees was made, the flanged pipe forming in 
effect a long " special " and making the problem of caring for 
the unbalanced pressures a simple one. 

The 24-inch main in Washington street between Water 
street and Court avenue, laid in 1849, was replaced with 
new pipe, as it was in poor condition and it was necessary to 
support it in the subway excavation during construction. 

In addition to the above a very large number of changes 
in distribution pipes and in services were made on account 
of subway construction, in fact work of some kind was prac- 
tically continuous throughout the year. 

The 30-inch high service main in Geneva avenue, Dor- 
chester, was lowered for a distance of 343 feet betAveen Co- 
lumbia road and Olney street to conform to the new grade 
of the street under the New York, New Haven & Hartford 
railway bridge. A 20-inch high service main was laid in 
Codman street, Dorchester, from the 30-inch main in Wash- 
ington street to Dorchester avenue, reinforcing the distribu- 
tion system at that point. The practice of relaying small 
mains with pipes adequate for the demands of modern fire 
service has been continued. 



Water Department. 71 

In Charlestown a 16-incli main was laid in Water and 
Chamber streets, replacing 8-inch and 12-inch pipe and 
affording an ample fire supply for the neigliborhood as well 
as for the extensive fire system installed by the Boston & 
Maine railway in the Hoosac docks. This system, the first 
of its kind in Boston, promises to be effective. It is a force 
pipe system, the fire engines pumping water from the city 
mains directly into tlie private pipes, which are large enough 
to furnish effective fire streams at distances from the engines, 
impossible with ordinary fire hose. In the South End 2,242 
feet of 16-inch pipe was laid in Harrison avenue, northerly 
from Northampton street, replacing a 12-inch line which was 
in very bad condition. 

Some other streets relaid with 12-inch and 10-inch pipe 
are as follows : Allen, Blossom to Chambers ; Tileston, Han- 
over to Salem ; Blackstone, Hanover to Cross ; Chatham, 
Commercial to Merchants row ; Tyler, Beacli to Harvard ; 
Eliot, Washington to Pleasant; Savoy, Washington to 
Harrison avenue: Northampton, Washington to Harrison 
avenue; Village, Dover to Castle; Rogers avenue, Ruggles 
to Huntington avenue; Greenwich, Freeport to Duncan; 
Park, Clayton to within 380 feet of Dorchester avenue; 
Moreland, Blue Hill avenue to Perrin ; Perrin,. Moreland to 
Waverly ; Waverly, Perrin to Warren ; Belgrade avenue, 
Corinth to Dudley avenue; Sixth street, C to E ; Mill, 
Webster to Sumner ; Webster, Mill to Lewis ; Foss, Chelsea 
to Water. 

The total amount of relaying done was as follows : 

4,753 feet of 16-inch pipe, replacing 6, 8 and 12 inch pipe.

2,675 " " 8 '' " " 4 " 6 






Eleven contracts for rock excavation have been made dur- 
ing the year. Sixty-nine petitions for main pipe extensions 
have been considered and reported upon in regard to grade, 
size of pipe, etc. A large number of miscellaneous investi- 
gations and reports have been made in regard to changes in 
location of main pipes and hydrants, changes of service, etc. 

All main pipe hydrants, gates, etc., have been located as 
they were laid and the plans of the same have been kept 
closely up to date. Substantial progress has been made 
towards the completion of sectional plans of the pipe system 
and of contour plans of the city on a scale of 200 feet to an 
inch. 



72 



City Document No. 43. 



Careful tests of the quality of iron and composition fur- 
nished have been made. 

The results of electrical surveys and investigations, made 
throughout the city, again prove conclusively that electric 
currents of varying strength are present, practically every- 
where, on the water pipes ; while actual instances of damage 
resulting from electrolysis have been found, during the year, 
in the case of a few lead services onl}^, yet the existing condi- 
tions are a constant menace to the life of the water pipes, 
and more serious damage may well be resulting than has yet 
been discovered. 

Respectfully submitted, 

William Jackson, 

City Engineer.
