Office of the Water Commissioner, 

City Hall,, Boston, December 28, 1908. 

Hon. George A. Hibbard, 

Mayor of the City of Boston: 

Sir, — I submit herewith under head of ' 'Thirteenth 
Annual Report of the Water Commissioner" such data as I 
have had prepared covering the fiscal year ending January 
31, 1908. As I did not receive my appointment as Water 
Commissioner until April 27, 1908, I am not in a position 
to comment upon the operations of the Water Department 
prior to that time, and therefore I will only say that the 
statements submitted, while not fully in conformity with 
the suggestions made by the Finance Commission, have 
been made up as far as possible along the lines recommended. 

Respectfully, 

William E. Hannan, 

Water Commissioner.

Income Division, Water Department. The report of the 
Meter Service Division, also the statement of Water Rates, 
covers the financial year ending January 31, 1908; the 
remainder of the report is rendered for the calendar year 
ending December 31, 1907 — 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 Division. 



TABLE I. 

Statement of Water Rates, January 31, 1908. 




Above amounts for years 1895, 1896 and 1897 include both Cochituate and Mystic 
supply accounts. The contracts to supply Chelsea, Somerville and Everett with Mystic 
water were abrogated by the Metropolitan Water Act of January 1, 1898. 

* This amount includes certain city department accounts, abated by order of the 
Mayor. 

t These amounts include abatements of city department accounts, under order of 
the City Council, approved by the Mayor on March 5, 1900, said order also abolishing 
all charges for water used by city departments. 

t The statement of water rates for the year 1908 is for annual accounts only; the 
quarterly meter accounts can only be estimated at this time.

REPORT OF THE ENGINEER. 



City of Boston, 
Engineering Department, 
50 City Hall, January 31, 1908. 

William J. Welch, Esq., 

Water Commissioner: 

Dear Sir, — The following is the more important work 
done during the past year mider the direction of the Engineer- 
ing Department. 

The work of laying the 48-inch low service main in Prentiss 
street, Parker street and Longwood avenue, from Tremont 
street to Brookline avenue, in progress last year, was com- 
pleted. Connections were made with the 36-inch and 30-inch 
mains in Tremont street, with the 16-inch main in Huntington 
avenue and with the 40-inch main in Brookline avenue. 
The resulting increase of pressure on the low service system 
was about 3 J pounds at time of maximum draft. 

A 30-inch low service main, feeding directly from a 36-inch 
main, was laid in Congress street, from Franklin street to 
Atlantic avenue, with two 16-inch connections for reinforcing 
the distribution system, one at High street and one at Atlantic 
avenue; this line will form part of the proposed low service 
feed from the city proper to South Boston. A trestle, 450 
feet in length, was built across Fort Point channel from 
the ends of the pipe tunnel, built in 1904, to the city proper 
and South Boston shores; this trestle is designed to carry 
24-inch low service and 16-inch high service mains, and is 
part of the plan for the new service for South Boston. 

The lowering of the grade of Dudley street, on account of 
the abolishment of the grade crossing of the New York, New 
Haven & Hartford R. R., made it necessary to relay 600 
feet of 24-inch low service and 800 feet of 12-inch low 
service pipes. At the same time opportunity was taken to 
lay about 600 feet of 16-inch high service pipe, which will 
form part of a very necessary high service main designed 
to extend in Dudley street from Upham's corner to Washing- 
ton street. 

A considerable amount of work was also done in connection 
with the abolishment of grade crossings in East Boston on the 
line of the Boston & Albany R. R. 



Water Department. 65 

The work of relaying mains inadequate for fire protection 
was prosecuted less vigorously than for several years past, 
in all about two miles of relaying being done. This work 
of improving the distribution system and making it equal 
to the present demands for fire protection is of first impor- 
tance and should be carried on*with all possible speed. 

The usual large amount of routine work, consisting of 
reports on petitions for main pipes and fire pipes, lines and 
grades for pipe laying, supervision of contracts and estimates 
of the same, preparation of plans of work done and proposed, 
tabulation of records, inspection of castings made in the 
local foundries, etc., was done during the year. 

Surveys and investigations to determine the electrical 
conditions existing on the water pipe system have been 
carried on continuously. 

Respectfully submitted, 

William Jackson, 

City Engineer.
