REPORT OF INCOME DIVISION. 



Office of General Superintendent, 

City Hall, Boston, February 1, 1907. 

William J. Welch, Esq., 

Water Commissioner : 

Deae, Sir, — I submit herewith the annual report of the 
Income Division, Water Department. The report of the 
Meter Service Division covers the financial year ending Jan- 
uary 31, 1907; the remainder of the report is rendered for 
the calendar year ending December 31, 1906 — it being 
impracticable, owing to the nature of our accounts, to render 
it for the financial year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

J. H. Caldwell, 

General Superintendent Income Divisioji.

REPORT OF THE ENGINEER. 



City of Boston, 

- - ENGlNEEKINa DEPARTMENT, 

50 City Hall, January 31, 1907. 

William J. Welch, Esq., 

Water Commissioner : 

Dear Sir, — A large part of the work done during the 
past year was of a routine character. In order to decrease 
the excessive loss of head existing on the low service between 
Chestnut Hill' reservoir and the city proper it was decided to 
lay a -iS-inch main from the 30-inch and 36-inch mains in 
Tremont street, via Prentiss street and Longwood avenue, to 
coimect with the 40-inch main in Brookline avenue, and 
thence to extend it in the hear future to connect with the 
48-inch main in Beacon street, Brookline, at Coolidge 
Corner. A beginning was made on this work during the 
year by laying 1,462 feet of 48-inch pipe in Longwood 
avenue, westerly from Huntington avenue. 

The work of replacing the old 30-inch main in Tremont 
street, begun in 1903, w^as continued, and 568 feet of pipe 
was laid from Kendall street to a point near Burke street, 
where the old pipe was found to be in good condition. The 
old 30-inch main from Massachusetts avenue to Burke street 
was abandoned. 

A large amount of miscellaneous work was done in con- 
nection with the construction of the subway in Washington 
street; it was necessary to abandon the 24-inch main in 
Union street, Haymarket square and Merrimac street, from 
Hanover street to Canal street, and the 20-inch main in 
Washington street North, from Union street to Stillman 
street; to replace these pipes a 30-inch pipe was laid from 
the 30-inch main in Traverse street, via Haverhill street, 
Stillman street and Endicott street, to Cross street, where a 
30-inch branch was left for a future extension ; from this 
point a 24-inch pipe was laid in Endicott street to Hanover 
street and the old 24-inch pipe in Hanover street was relaid. 
The 24-inch main in Washington street was relaid from State 
street to Adams square. All of these large mains, abandoned 
on account of the subway construction, were a part of the 
original distribution system. 



Water Department. • 71 

Considerable progress was made in the work of extending 
the high and low service systems to the South Boston flats, 
226 feet of 24-inch and 959 feet of 16-inch pipe being laid, 
principally in Congress street. 

The work of increasing the supply of water for fire pur- 
poses was continued, and improvements in this line were 
made in different parts of the city, notably in Charlestown, 
where about one mile of 12-inch pipe, supplying hydrants, 
was laid in the yards of the Boston &; Maine Railroad, west 
of Rutherford avenue ; this work has greatly lessened the 
serious danger which threatened Charlestown from fires 
originating in the Boston & Maine Railroad freight sheds, 
which extend along Rutherford avenue from the State Prison 
almost to Cambridge street. 

A 2-inch lead pipe, laid in 1895 from Moon Island to 
Long Island, was taken up and was laid between Long and 
Rainsford Islands to serve as an emergency pipe, as the 
existing 4-inch flexible pipe had failed several times. 

Electrical investigations have been continued, and addi- 
tional evidence has been found that serious damage is being 
done to the water pipe system by electrolysis. 

Respectfully submitted, 

William Jackson, 

City Engineer.
