Office of the "Water Commissioner, 

City Hall, Boston, Feb. 1, 1897. 

Hon. Josiah Qtjincy, Mayor : 

Sir : I submit the report of the doings of the Water 
Department for the year ending. Jan. 31, 1897. 

The financial condition of the department is satisfactory, 
the income showing an increase over last year, and the net 
debt a marked decrease. The stock on hand has increased 
$37,000 worth during the year. 

The work accomplished by the department, as a whole, has 
been excellent. The miles of pipe laid — thirty-five and four- 
tenths — is the largest in the history of the department. The 
work connected with a large portion of it was of a diffi- 
cult nature, owing to its being laid in the heart of the city. 

The most expensive work that the department does is the 
taking up of old pipe and the laying of new in its place, the 
replacing of old gates with new ones, and the making of 
special connections. More of this work has been done than 
in years past, especially of relaying. The amount of pipe 
relaid was eight and six-tenths miles. 

Notwithstanding that the department has been compelled 
to meet some extraordinary expenses — such as placing a 
new electric plant in the Chestnut-Hill Pumping Station ; 
new machinery ; selling a large number of the horses of 
the department, that were absolutely unfit for service and 
purchasing new horses in their places ; rebuilding of the 
Eastern Division stable, which was unsafe and unhealthy ; 
repairing the water tower at Orient Heights ; re-establish- 
ment of a system of Deacon meter and waste inspection ; 
the relaying of miles of old pipe, etc. — the expenses of the 
department have been smaller than last year, and in pro- 
portion to the work accomplished will compare more than 
favorably with previous years. 

The daily consumption of water has increased far more 
than was warranted by the increase in population. The 
Deacon Meter system demonstrates that a lack of proper care 
and inspection of household fixtures is responsible to a great 



2 City Document No. 32. 

extent for this increase. If the work of the Waste Inspec- 
tion division is properly done, there is no reason why the 
consumption cannot be reduced. 

Last summer was an exceptionally dry one, and the sup- 
ply of water in the basins was the lowest in many years. It 
was found necessary to inspect all fixtures and send emer- 
gency notices to water-takers. This resulted in a marked de- 
crease in the consumption of water, followed by an increased 
consumption when the rain came and the public realized that 
there was no immediate danger of a water famine. 

The height of the water in the storage basins at the present 
time is very low, and, if the rainfall of the coming year should 
be less than normal, there is still great danger of exhausting 
our water supply. In anticipation of this measures have 
been taken to meet such a difficulty by raising Whitehall 
pond two feet, thus increasing its storage capacity four hun- 
dred million gallons; also by the action of the Metropolitan 
Water Board, who have arranged to store fifteen hundred 
million gallons in the partially constructed basin, No. 5. This 
increased storage in Whitehall pond and Basin 5 will give us 
a sufficient supply of water to meet all but extraordinary 
emergencies. 

Placing the Depaetment on a Permanent Basis. 

The method pursued heretofore has been to partially sus- 
pend a large number of the working force for a portion of the 
year. With your approval, the whole force has been perma- 
nently employed this year. The results have been satisfac- 
tory, and the money expended in maintaining the department 
on a permanent basis has been well spent. 

Meters. 
The use of meters has not been extended, partially be- 
cause of lack of appropriation. 

Organization. 
The general organization of the department has been 
changed very materially. The Mystic division has been

consolidated with the Eastern, and as the department is now 
constituted it consists of two divisions, the Eastern and the 
Western. 

The system of keeping the general accounts has also been 
changed, and a different method of reporting on the work 
and its cost has been established, resulting in more cor- 
rectness. 

The new methods have been applied to the Cochituate 
branch of the Water Department — Districts 1, 2, and 3. 
They have worked so satisfactorily that next year the same 
methods will be used in District 4 (formerly the Mystic 
Division) and in the Meter Department. 

I am of the opinion that the work that must be done dur- 
ing the coming year will be larger than last year. There 
will be a great deal of relaying of old pipe in our business 
sections, as the pipe laid there years ago is in a more or 
less dangerous condition and requires to be changed as a 
matter of safety and also on account of the repaving of im- 
portant thoroughfares by the Street Department. The de- 
mands made for increased fire protection, brought about by 
the height and size of our new buildings, will also necessitate 
an increase in the capacity of our low, and the extension of 
our high, service mains. This relaying and extension of 
service mains is necessary and should be done. It means, 
however, a large expenditure of money. 

The receipts and disbursements of the department for the 
year were as follows :

APPENDIX B. 



REPORT OF THE RESIDENT ENGINEER AND 
SUPERINTENDENT OF THE WESTERN DIVI- 
SION. 



South Framistgham, Jan. 1, 1897. 

Hon. Joien" R. Murphy, 

Water Commissioner : 
Sir : The annual report of the Western Division of the 
Boston Water Works is herewith submitted. 

SuDBHRY-RrVER Basins. 

Water-shed, 75.2 Square Miles. 

The rainfall for 1896 was 43.21 inches at Frarningham, 
and 42.22 inches at Chestnut-Hill Reservoir. The mean 
rainfall on the Sudbury-river water-shed was 43.07 inches, 
which is about 5 inches below the average. 

As a whole, the year can hardly be classified among the 
years of drought. The deficiency, however, occurring in 
five consecutive months, beginning with April and ending 
with August, caused some uneasiness, iu view of the possi- 
bility of a small rainfall for the rest of the year. 

The following table shows the average yield of the Sud- 
bury-river water-shed for 1875-95, inclusive, and the yield 
for 1896. It will be seen that the month of May was really 
the dry month, and remarkably so. 

Yield of the Sudbury-river ivater-shed in millions of gallons 
per square mile per day.

The city, however, had on store September 1, about 
3,000,000,000 gallons in the Sudbury system alone and 
2,700,000,000 gallons on October 1 — the lowest point reached 
during the year. There is no doubt that in a year of the 
most excessive drought the city supply is somewhat below 
the safety line, caused by the delay in undertaking the 
building of Reservoir 5. This reservoir will be completed 
in a year from the present date, and it is now sufficiently 
advanced to store about 1,200,000,000 gallons. It is the 
present intention to store this additional amount of water at 
this point during the winter and spring. This water, with 
the present storage facilities, and an additional amount 
added to Reservoir 8 by raising its surface 2 feet, will 
meet all the probable demands of the city during the com- 
ing year. 

On Jan. 4, 1896, Reservoir 5 was seized by the Common- 
wealth, through the agency of the Metropolitan Water 
Board, and the construction of this important addition to 
Boston's supply has been continued under the direction of 
that Board. Owing to the large amount of work going on 
in the bottom of that reservoir, it has been even more 
difficult than last year to maintain the good quality of the 
water delivered to the city's distribution pipes. A large 
degree of success has, however, been met with in this direc- 
tion, due to the very large scale of the Boston works and the 
excellent sanitary conditions maintained by the Common- 
wealth in the construction of Reservoir 5. At times 
2.000 men and a large number of teams were engaged in strip- 
ping the soil in Southborough and Marlborough, not far above 
Reservoir 3, and the water flowing into this reservoir was 
necessarily very muddy. In anticipation of this condition, 
the surface of Reservoir 3 was early drawn down as low 
as possible, and then it was allowed to fill slowly with the 
poor water, and none of the supply of the city was drawn 
directly from this source during the whole summer. 

Reservoirs 4 and 6 were drawn down, and, as they con- 
tained excellent water the city supply was never better 
during nearly the whole season. 

The color of the tap water fell as low as 0.40. The color 
now is about 0.70. Whenever it became necessary to draw 
a little water from Reservoir 3, it was allowed to settle first 
in Reservoir 1, and then it had to pass through Chestnut- 
Hill Reservoir. 

A small day force has been kept at work on the Filter 
Beds at Reservoir 6 during the year, and three of the beds 
are now completed and underdrained.

On Jan. 1, 1896, water in this reservoir stood at eleva- 
tion 158.11, and water was wasting over the stone crest 
of the dam and continued to waste, with the exception of 
January 16, until April 13, when both sets of flash-boards 
were placed in. position. The water in the reservoir then 
rose, and on April 16, a small amount of waste commenced 
over the flash-boards and continued until May 1, when the 
water in the reservoir fell below the top of the flash-boards. 
On May 12, the water in the reservoir was at elevation 
157.08, and from this date until November 6, the water in 
the reservoir was kept near elevation 157.00 by drafts first 
from Reservoir 3 and later from Reservoir 2. The water 
then rose and began to waste over the stone crest, which 
continued until December 3, when the water in the reservoir 
fell for a while below the stone crest, but soon rose, and on 
December 9, waste again commenced, and continued until 
December 17, when waste for the year ceased. The water 
in the reservoir then fell, and on December 31, was at an 
elevation of 156.43. 

No water was wasted from this reservoir into the Sudbury 
river through the flood gates, except on April 22 and 23, 
when a gate was opened for a while to prevent too great a 
depth of water from flowing over the flash-boards. 

Both sets of flash-boards were placed in position on the 
dam on April 13 and removed on August 7. 

The highest elevation reached during the year was 159.00, 
on March 1, and the lowest 156.29 on December 27. 

Water for the supply of the city was drawn wholly from 
this reservoir from 12 M., January 6, to 11 A.M., March 31 ; 
from 9 A.M., April 20, to 6 A.M., April 21; and from 10.30 
A.M., December 17, to 10 A.M., December 18. 

Water was drawn partially from this reservoir and par- 
tially from Reservoir 2 from 11 A.M., March 31, to 9 A.M., 
April 20 ; from 6 A.M., April 21, to 5 P.M., April 22 ; from

On Jan. 1, 1896, water in this reservoir stood at elevation 
166.17 and was flowing over the stone crest of the dam and 
continued to flow until April 13, when both sets of flash- 
boards were placed on the stone crest, after which the water 
rose and on April 16 was flowing over the flash-boards and 
so continued with the exception of three days until April 29, 
when an extra set of flash-boards was put on the regular set. 
On May 3, water began to waste over the flash-boards until 
May 24. The water then gradually fell with slight rises at 
times, to elevation 163.02 on June 26, when water was drawn 
from Reservoir 4. On July 30, water was also drawn from 
Reservoir 6, and still later, on September 16 from Reservoir 
8, to keep up the supply. Reservoir 2 was kept on an aver- 
age between elevations 162.50 and 163.00 until September 
20, then between elevations 163.00 and 164.00 untilNovember 
30, when the waste gate at Reservoir 8 was finally closed, the 
gate at Dam 4 having been closed on October 7 and at Dam 
6 on November 20. On November 30 water in the reservoir 
was at elevation 163.52, at 164.57 on December 18 and at 
163.82 on December 31. All flash-boards were removed on 
August 7. 

The highest elevation reached by the water during the year 
was 167.60 on May 7 and 8, and the lowest was 162.33 on 
August 20. Water for the supply of the city was drawn 
wholly from this reservoir from 7 A.M., January 1, to 12 M., 
January 6 : from 5 P.M., April 22, to 3.30 P.M., April 23 ; 
from 11 A.M., August 8, to 11 A.M., August 10 ; from 9 
A.M., September 7, to 11 A.M., September 8 ; from 10 A.M., 
September 20, to 11 A.M., September 21 ; and from 11 A.M., 
November 5, to 10.15 A.M., November 18. 

Between August 27 and October 27 the town of Ashland 
finished the widening of Fountain street, near the head of 
Reservoir 2. For a distance of about 2,250 feet land was 
taken from the city for the widening. No compensation has 
been made for the land so taken. 

About 530 feet of the fence that the city has to maintain 
on Fountain street, Framingham, near the bridge, has been 
rebuilt. The remainder is in poor condition and should be 
renewed as soon as possible. The Fountain-street bridge 
was painted in October. 

The average number of organisms for the year in Reservoir 
2 has been 95 per c.c. and amorphous matter 181 per c.c. 



42 City Document No. 32. 

Infusoria were the most important organisms, but they 
were at no time abundant. Synura, Glenodinium and 
Euglena Acus were observed. The Diatomacese reached a 
maximum of 400 on June 1.

On Jan. 1, 1896, water in this reservoir stood at elevation 
175.75 and was flowing over the stone crest, and con- 
tinued to overflow until May 12, with the exception of Feb- 
ruary 9 and 10, March 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, and 21, when 
water was running through the gates into Reservoir 1. On 
May 12, an outlet gate into Reservoir 1 was opened, and the 
water gradually fell to 168.23 on August 6, when the outlet 
gate was closed. The water then remained at about 168.35 
until September 5, and rose to 171.46 on September 23, when 
the outlet was opened, falling then to 170.86 on October 
13. The water then rose, and on November 5 was flowing 
over the stone crest, and continued to overflow until Decem- 
ber 27, when the outlet gate was again opened. The 
water in the reservoir then fell to elevation 174.82 on 
December 31. 

The highest point reached during the year was 176.81 on 
February 7, and the lowest, 168.23 on August 6. 

The average number of organisms for the year was 506 
per cc. ; of amorphous matter 269 per cc. 

Diatomacess were present in small numbers during the 
first of the year, but were unimportant until October 1, when 
a vigorous growth of Tabellaria commenced, which reached 
a maximum of 1,600 on October 20, and decreased gradually 
until the end of the year. Infusoria were present from March 
until May. Euglena Acus appeared on March 24, and reached 
a maximum of 368 at the middle of April. Uroglena was 
present to the amount of 300 on the last of April. The 
Chlorophycese and Cyanophycese reached a considerable 
growth about June 1. On August 25, Ccelosphserium was 
present to the amount of 2,140 standard units per cc. 

On account of work at Dam No. 5, the water of the in- 
fluent stream, which enters Reservoir 3, has been turbid a 
considerable portion of the time, frequently so turbid as to 
make the estimation of the color impossible. On several 
occasions this turbidity extended throughout the water of 
the reservoir.

On Jan. 1, 1896, water in this reservoir was at eleva- 
tion 213.86, and on January 3 was flowing over the stone 
crest of the waste weir, and continued to overflow until 
March 18, when an outlet gate was opened. On March 21 
the gate was closed, and the water again began to overflow, 
which continued until April 13, when the lower set of flash- 
boards was put in place. On April 15, the upper set was 
put in place ; on April 19, water again began to waste, and 
so continued until June 26, when the supply for the use of 
the city was drawn from this source. The water fell to 
183.45 on September 7, when the outlet gate was closed. 
The water then rose to elevation 184.72 on September 15, 
when a gate being again opened it fell to 182.43 on October 
7. The outlet gate was then closed for the year, the reser- 
voir gradually filling to 194.99 on December 31. 

The highest elevation reached during the year was 215.38 
on March 1 and April 24, and the lowest 182.12 on Septem- 
ber 29. 

A considerable amount of work has been done during the 
year on Cold Spring Brook, below Dam 4, principally on the 
first bridge below the dam. The abutments of this bridge 
are on a quicksand foundation, and they had moved out of 
line to such an extent that it was determined to rebuild 
them. The site was surrounded by a coffer-dam of sheeting, 
and a deep concrete foundation put in place, upon which the 
abutments were started. This work is still in progress. It 
was begun with a small force on October 19. 

The average number of organisms for the year was 103 
per cc, against 39 per cc. for 1895, and of amorphous 
matter 176 against 158 for last year. 

Diatomacese have been present throughout the year, and 
have constituted the greater part of the growth of organisms. 
With the exception of a small number of Synedra during 
July, the growth has been almost entirely composed of the 
small Cyclotella, which reached a maximum of 1,465 in the 
middle of December. Chlorophycese appeared in July, but 
were not abundant. There was a considerable growth of 
Draparnaldia on the stones just below the entrance of the 
influent stream during November, but none of it appeared 
in the water.

On Jan. 1, 1896, water in this reservoir stood at eleva- 
tion 294.39 and was flowing over the stone crest, and con- 
tinued to overflow, with the exception of March 18, 19, 20, 
21, and 22, when the outlet gate was opened to prevent 
the water in the reservoir from rising too high, until April 
13, when the lower set of flash boards was placed in position. 
The reservoir then kept at about high-water mark, elevation 
295.00, until August 1, when an outlet gate was opened for 
the supply of the city. The water fell to 261.69 on Novem- 
ber 20, when the gate was closed. It then rose to 267.38 
on December 18, when water was drawn on to the filter beds 
to test their efficiency. On December 31 the surface stood 
at 266.56. From August 1 to September 22 a small portion 
of the water, drawn from this source, was filtered on Beds 1 
and 3. The highest elevation reached during the year was 
295.27 on March 1, and the lowest 261.69 on November 20. 

Between May and December 21, work has been continued 
by the day upon the filter beds in course of construction 
below Dam 6. Beds 2 and 4 were graded, and Bed 5 nearly 
completed. Beds 2 and 3 were thoroughly underdrained by 
two different systems. One outlet well has been built at the 
ends of the pipes. 

The following tables give the results of such experiments 
as have been made upon the filtration of water through the 
beds. In this connection it must be kept in mind that the 
results obtained are, in some respects, never as satisfactory 
when the beds are new as they are after the beds have been 
in use for a short time.

The channel of Indian brook has been excavated and its 
banks gravelled for a distance of about 1,000 feet. The 
long shed which had been used as a barn and which stood on 
the site of Bed 5 was removed. One-half of it was sold, and 
the other half moved to the attendant's house. The walk on 
the top of the dam has been regraded with proper materials. 

The average number of organisms for the year was 137 
per cc. against 72 per cc. for 1895, and of amorphous 
matter 178 against 234 for 1895. 

Diatomacese were present throughout the greater part of 
the year. The most abundant growth consisting mainly of 
Tabellaria, occurred in September. 

Infusoria were present throughout the greater part of the 
year, although not in very large numbers. During the latter 
part Glenodinium was more abundant. 

Anthrophysa was present in the influent in June. Inves- 
tigation showed that there was a large growth of Infusoria 
in several enlargements of the influent stream or pockets at 
the head of the reservoir, and some special studies were made 
of these growths. 

Chlorophycese and Cyanophyceae were present from June 
to September. There was a large growth of Draparnaldia 
on the stones at the head of the reservoir in November, but 
none was observed free in the water.

On Jan. 1, 1896, water in this reservoir stood at eleva- 
tion 325.29 or 2.62 feet below high water. The outlet gate

was open. On March 4 the water was at 326.07 and on March 
29, when the gate was closed, was at 325.58. The water 
then rose to 326.58 on April 26. It remained at about this 
level until June 30, falling to 325.82 on September 16, when 
the outlet gate was opened to furnish water to Reservoir 2 
for the supply of the city. On October 17, when the gate 
was closed, the surface was at 324.56. It then rose to 324.92 
on November 17, when the gate was again opened. The 
water then fell to 324.35 on Nov. 30, when the gate was 
finally closed, after which it gradually rose to 324.77 on De- 
cember 31. 

The highest elevation reached during the year was 326.71 
on June 16 and 18, and the lowest 324.35 on November 30. 

Weir measurements of the waste have been taken as usual. 

Towards the last of the year, it was decided to raise the 
dam at the outlet in order to store an additional two feet in 
depth of water. It was found that besides raising the dam, 
it would be necessary to build a dyke at the cove, on the 
north-westerly side of the reservoir, to rebuild a culvert and 
raise a short piece of road at the southerly extremity, and 
also as a precautionary measure to build a coffer-dam across 
the narrow part of the reservoir, about 130 feet above the 
old dam. Work was commenced December 28, by driving 
sheeting at the site of the dyke.

On Jan. 1, 1896, water in this pond was at elevation 
149.67. On February 10 it had risen to 150.22, but water 
was then wasted into Sudbury river, and the surface fell to 
149.25 on February 20. It then began to rise and on March 
12 reached 149.77, when water was again wasted into the 
Sudbury river, and it receded to 149.11 on March 14. It 
then rose to 149.57 on April 4, when it began to recede, and 
on September 3 had fallen to 148.21. The water then rose 
to 148.53 on September 14, and from this time to the end of 
the year remained between 148.50 and 149.00. 

The highest elevation reached during the year was 150.22 
on February 10, 11 and 12, and the lowest 148.21, on Sep- 
tember 3 and 5. 

No water for the supply of the city has been drawn from 
this pond during the year. 

The Framingham Water Company has pumped 139,300,000 
gallons during the year, an average of 380,601 gallons daily.

The total amount of waste was 93,900,000 gallons, of 
which 2,000,000 gallons were used in cleaning the aqueduct, 
and the remainder wasted into the river.

On Jan. 1, 1896, water in the lake was at elevation 132.30 
or 2.06 feet below high water. On January 24 it had 
fallen to 131.86, but on February 8 rose to 133.86. The 
waste was opened for a while. On February 19 it rose to 
134.02 and the waste gate was again opened, and kept open 
nearly all the time until April 9, when it was finally closed. 
On April 9 the water was at 134.20, and on April 23 it had 
risen to high water, 134.36. The surface gradually fell to 
elevation 127.77 on October 13, from which date it remained 
at about 128.00 until the end of the year. 

The amount of water wasted from the lake at the outlet 
dam was 42,900,000 gallons in January, 434,300,000 gallons 
in February, 1,262,200 gallons in March, and 167,600,000 
gallons in April; a total of 1,907,000,000 gallons. 

In April 300,000 gallons were turned into the lake from 
the Sudbury sources, and in May 35,200,000 gallons, a total 
of 35,500,000 gallons. 

All of the flash-boards have been in place on the crest of 
the outlet dam during the year. All of the at stop-planks 
the circular dam were put in place on June 6, and on Novem- 
ber 2 one stop-plank was removed. 

Early in the autumn the low level of the lake rendered it 
probable that it might be necessary to pump into the aqueduct 
to maintain the supply. In consequence, all the machinery 
for this purpose was overhauled, tested, and put in perfect 
readiness to begin pumping. The platforms for the pumps 
and shafting were completed as far as possible. One of the 
Atlas engines, intended for pumping at the lake, was in use 
at the Natick filter beds. An Ames engine was taken from 
the storehouse at South Framingham to take its place. The 
heavy rainfall in September enabled the supply to be kept 
up, without resorting to pumping. 

Early in the summer, G. F. Whitney built a boat-house 
within a few feet of the city's line on his land on the east 
shore of Pegan meadows, and attempted to grade from his 
boat>house over the city's land to the water. In order to

50 City Document No. 32. 

The bottom of the waste way of the receiving basin at the 
filter beds, which was built of paving imbedded in sand, was 
caved in, and the side walls cracked and lowered in some 
places b}^ the wasting of water early in the year. During 
the summer the bottom was thoroughly repaired by replac- 
ing the paving on a bed of concrete for the entire length of 
the waste-way, and the side walls were taken down and re- 
built where necessary. On the north side of the waste-way 
sheeting was driven and a concrete core-wall built to the 
border of the city land, on the centre line of the dam pro- 
duced, to prevent the percolation of water from the basin. 

This winter quite a large quantity of roots, hummocks, 
etc., which had been raised by the ice, and deposited on 
Pegan meadows, were removed above high water, and the 
appearance of the meadow improved. 

No adjustment of damages has yet been made between 
the Boston & Albany Railroad and the Water Department 
for the damage caused by filling into and across the lake. 
Some of the city land was also taken by the railway which 
has not yet been paid for. 

The average number of organisms for the year was 569 
per c.c. against 360 per c.c. for 1895. The amorphous matter 
was 411 per c.c. against 569 last year. 

The spring growth of diatoms reached a maximum of 450 
on May 25. They were not abundant again until November 
1, when a vigorous growth of Asterionella commenced, which 
amounted to 1,500 per c.c. on November 23, and decreased 
slowly during December. In connection with the autumn 
growth there was considerable Melosira, especially at the 
mid-depth and bottom. 

Infusoria have been present during the year, but were not 
abundant until the middle of July, when a growth of Mallo- 
monas appeared at the mid-depth. They reached a maximum 
of 3,640 on August 4, and disappeared as a distinct growth 
about the middle of October. A growth of Uroglena, 
which commenced about the middle of June, appeared to be 
the cause of a simultaneous growth in Chestnut-Hill Reser- 
voir. Anabcena (sterile) was present during January, but 
the main growth of Chlorophycese and Cyanophycese did not 
begin until June 1. They were represented mainly by Pro- 
tococcus, Microcystis, Anabsena, and Anabsena (sterile). 
The autumn growth of Anabsena (sterile) began about the 
middle of November, and continued through the remainder 
of the year. 

Crenothrix appeared at the bottom on July 1, and was 
noticed a few times at other depths after the overturn of the

Dudley Pond. 

Grades, H. W., 146.46; 18-inch Pipe, 130.36 and 127.36. 
Area, Water Surface, 81 acres; Greatest Depth, 27 feet; Contents, above 130.36, 

260,000,000 gals. 

On Jan. 1, 1896, water in this pond was at elevation 143.53 
or 2.93 feet below high water, and on December 31 it was 
at 143.16. No water has been drawn from the pond during 
the year. 

SUDBURY-RlVER AQUEDUCT. 

Grades, 141.352 at Farm Pond; 124.051 at Terminal Gate-House. 
Length, 15.89 miles; Size, 7 ft. 8in. X 9 ft.; Capacity, 109,000,000 in gals. 24 hours. 

The three portions of this aqueduct are in good condition. 
The supply and Farm-pond aqueducts were cleaned once by 
machine on April 16. The main aqueduct was cleaned by 
machine from Farm pond to the West Siphon Chamber on 
April 22 and 23, and by hand from East Siphon Chamber 
to Chestnut Hill-Reservoir on May 14 and 15. 

While the Supply and Farm-pond aqueducts were under- 
going their annual cleaning on April 16, 50 feet of the main 
aqueduct, easterly from the gate-house at Farm pond, was 
cleaned ; also the muddy deposits of the swampy sections as 
far as the Rockland tunnel ; also Course-brook Waste- Weir 
and 50 feet easterly and westerly from the weir, Bacon's 
Waste Weir and Fuller's Waste Weir and 50 feet each side 



52 City Document No. 32. 

of the weirs ; also the muddy deposit on the arch from Waban 
bridge to West Pipe Chamber; also the pipe chamber, and 
50 feet of aqueduct in a westerly direction. 

On April 30 the Rockland and Badger Hill tunnels were 
both cleaned. They were covered with a black deposit and 
sponge growth, the latter on the bottom and one foot 
above the same, only. In the Beacon-street tunnel 40 lbs. of 
slate stone had fallen at Station 780 + 55 and 6 lbs. of con- 
glomerate at Station 791 + 25. The concrete lining and 
railroad track were found in excellent condition. 

The 48-in. pipes in Reservoir 1 have been flushed into the 
river below Dam 1, once during the year. 

The three portions of the aqueduct have been in use for 
the same length of time, 359.2 days. 

The flow was stopped, except for cleaning the aqueduct, 
only three times during the year. 

The amount of water sent to the city has been 14,857,- 
300,000 gallons, a daily average of 40,594,000 gallons. Be- 
sides the above, 35,500,000 gallons have been turned into 
Lake Cochituate. 

The whole line of the aqueduct is in most excellent con- 
dition, with the exception of the Waban arches. A large 
amount of careful attention has been given to every struct- 
ure, the fences, iron work, roofs, etc., and their maintenance 
reflects credit on the small maintenance force of five men. 

Last year the Waban arches were thoroughly repaired at 
considerable expense, and they were made absolutely water- 
tight ; but they are now leaking badly again. It has been 
proved that it is impossible to keep the aqueduct tight under 
all the changes of temperature in this climate, and it is simply 
a matter of time when the masonry is irretrievably ruined, 
unless constant efforts are made to keep it in repair. 
On February 14, 1896, an examination was made of the 
bridge between the bottom of the aqueduct and the longi- 
tudinal galleries under the same. The upper gallery on the 
north side of the bridge was found covered with ice to a 
depth of 4 inches. This ice extended the whole length, 
with the exception of 100 feet at each end. In the other 
two galleries the ice covered about one-half the length of the 
structure. The ice extended upward 1 foot on to the ad- 
jacent walls. On the north wall of the north gallery the ice 
reached the top. In places the water was percolating through 
the walls, and standing to a depth of three-quarters of an 
inch in places in the southerly galleries. 

The top of the main arches beneath the galleries were 
covered with ice over their whole surface, as far as could be 



Water Department. 53 

seen, which appeared to be about 6 inches in thickness. 
Frost and ice were visible on the vertical portions of the 
work throughout. 

A year later similar conditions were found, and the 
masonry was leaking badly. Water was running into the 
tell-tale pipes at the end of the bridge. At the easterly end 
the stream was 1 foot wide and £ inch deep. At the westerly 
end the stream was 2 feet wide and 1 inch in depth with 
considerable velocity. These streams did not represent all 
the leakage, as some water was percolating into the spaces 
over the main arches. In thawing weather this water 
makes its way through the joints in the granite. In the in- 
terior of the work the cement joints are working out and 
plastering is forced off. Exterior joints are displaced by the 
action of the frost and the running out of the water. If this 
action is going on in as fine a piece of masonry as the 
Waban arches, built with every apparent precaution and 
well drained, what must it be in an inferior piece of aque- 
duct bridge construction ? It will probably be necessary to 
line the aqueduct over the Waban arches with lead and then 
to repair the masonry thoroughly. 

A tunnel has been built under the aqueduct at Newton 
Highlands to contain a sewer. The building of these sewers 
under the aqueduct has always proved a costly and danger- 
ous operation. This year it was determined to try a novel 
scheme. Excavations were made on each side of the aque- 
duct to the desired depth. Steel cylinders, 6 feet 6 inches 
long, were then forced through the soil by a jack-screwand the 
material excavated from in front of them. The cylinders 
were in telescopic form, the largest 5 feet 10 inches in 
diameter, and the smallest 5 feet inside measurement. They 
were made of boiler steel, f inch thick, in one sheet lapped 
and fastened with one row of rivets. When placed in posi- 
tion in the tunnel, each cylinder lapped over the adjoining 
one 6 inches. The whole length of the tunnel was 35 feet 
between the plank bulkheads at each end. There were 7 feet 
6 inches of roof between the under side of the bottom of the 
aqueduct and the steel cylinders. It was 27 feet from the 
top of the embankment to the bottom grade line of excavation. 

The material was a coarse loose gravel, containing stones 
of all sizes up to 2 cubic feet. One jack-screw properly ap- 
plied did all the work. This method of construction is a 
great success, and avoids any settlement of the material under 
the aqueduct. The excavating was done when the cylinder 
was hard pressed against the gravel. The gravel around the 
edge of the cylinder was first scraped away with trowels and 



54 City Document No. 32. 

a sharp pointed hammer; the central portion would then 
fall of itself. When large stones were met partially 
outside the line of the cylinders, they were carefully removed 
and the cavities filled with stiff cement. Two men at the 
jack-screw outside and two men in the cylinders did all the 
work. The tunnelling was all done from one end. It was 
found important to have each cylinder 2 inches smaller than 
the preceding one in order to keep the alignment true. The 
average time of driving each cylinder, excavating the gravel 
and removing the same was 12f hours. 

After the tunnel was completed, the sewer and underdrain 
were built inside of it, and all spaces filled with masonry. 

This same method has since been tried on the Cochituate 
aqueduct in the presence of water, the water being first 
lowered by pumping, so that the excavation was compara- 
tively dry. 

Cochituate Aqueduct. 

Grades, 121.03 at Lake; 116.77 at Brookline Reservoir. 
Length, 14.60 miles; Size, 5ft. X 6 ft. 4 in.; Capacity, 20,000,000 gals, in 24 hours. 

This aqueduct has been in constant use during the year, 
except from 5 P.M., April 5, to 5 A.M., April 9, when the 
flow was stopped for cleaning the interior. 

A depth of 6|- feet has been maintained in the aqueduct, 
except for the last six days of December, when the lake was 
not high enough to furnish this flow. 

The aqueduct was cleaned from the gate-house at Lake 
Cochituate to the influent gate-house at Chestnut-Hill Reser- 
voir on April 6, 7 and 8. From the lake to Station 10 + 00, 
Division 1, there was found a large quantity of moss, some 
Spongilla, and a black deposit about one inch in depth. To 
Station 27 + 00 the Spongilla was increasing, the moss de- 
creasing, and the deposit about the same. From Station 27 
+ 00 to Station 130 + 00, Division 1, the Spongilla and de- 
posit were decreasing, and there was no moss. From Station 
130 + 00 to the Charles-river bridge the Spongilla and de- 
posit gradually decreased. From Charles-river bridge to 
the influent gate-house there was a considerable deposit, but 
not much Spongilla. 

The part of the aqueduct from the influent gate-house to 
Brookline reservoir was not cleaned, as the water could not 
be shut off' from that section. 

The sewer at Newton Highlands, which was mentioned as 
passing under the Sudbury-river aqueduct, also crosses the 
line of this aqueduct. The tunnel was driven by the method 
already described, but in this case pumping was necessary to 
keep down the water. 



Water Department. 55 

Another sewer has been laid across the aqueduct on the 
Newton Boulevard, opposite Irving street, Newton Centre. 
In order that the sewer might be perfectly tight it consisted 
here of a 10-inch iron pipe, 43 feet long, with lead joints. 
The sewer and the 6-inch earthen sub-drain are surrounded 
by from 6 inches to 10 inches of American cement concrete. 

A private sewer, 8 inches in diameter, crossing the aque- 
duct about 1,200 feet west of the Chestnut-Hill reservoir 
grounds has been made secure in the same way as the 
preceding. 

A new iron ladder has been put in the Newton Centre 
Waste Weir, and all the iron work there scraped and 
painted with one coat of asphalt paint. 

The bushes along the line of the aqueduct have been 
mowed for a width of about 60 feet from Lake Cochituate 
to Newton Centre, a distance of about 10i miles. 

The bound stones from Wellesley to Lake Cochituate 
have been examined, and those which had been disturbed by 
frost have been reset. Missing bound stones along the whole 
length of the aqueduct should be replaced. 

Chestnut-Hill Reservoir. 

Grades, H. W., 125.00; Dam, 128; Effluent jAyes, 99 80. 
Area, Lawrence Basin, 37.5 acres; Contents, 166,000,000 gals. ; Area, Bradlee Basin, 
87-5 acres; Contents, 391,000.000 gals. 
Total Contents above grade, 100.00, 557,000,000 gals. 

The extension of Commonwealth avenue, which cut 
through a portion of the driveway, has necessitated the re- 
moval of the arch, which marked the beginning of the drive- 
way. It was taken down in June, and the stones numbered 
and piled on the reservoir grounds. 

The stone wall on South street, near the Lawrence basin, 
which had to be removed, on account of the construction of 
the Commonwealth-avenue boulevard through a portion of 
South street, has been rebuilt by the Street Department. 

A pipe has been laid to the stable, for the purpose of pro- 
tecting it in case of fire. The necessary hose and connec- 
tions have been provided. 

An extensive series of experiments was made in the spring 
on the flow of water through the 36-inch force main leading 
to Fisher Hill Reservoir, with velocities ranging from 0.5 to 
4.5 feet per second. The quantity of water flowing was meas- 
ured at the 10-foot weir at Fisher Hill. The frictional loss 
was found to be much larger than had been anticipated. 
The coefficient e in the Chezy formula, v = c (RS) 1 ^ was 
found to be as low as 113, although the pipe had been laid 
less than two years. To determine, if possible, the cause of 



56 City Document No. 32. 

this great frictional loss the pipe was partially drained, and 
entered at one end. The interior surface was found to be 
somewhat tuberculated, and entirely covered with a slimy 
growth of one of the protozoa. More than a third of the 
surface felt roughly granular, as though covered with in- 
cipient tubercles. 

A 100-foot standard of length has been established at 
Chestnut-Hill Keservoir for the purpose of testing measuring 
tapes. The standard consists of a steel bar one inch by one- 
quarter inch in cross section, resting on rolls one foot apart. 
It is supported by a bench, built along the side of the manure 
shed, at an average height of about four feet from the 
ground. It is provided with covers to protect the steel from 
the weather. It is graduated every ten feet on silver discs 
set into the steel. The graduations were obtained from the 
United States standard at Washington by two steel tapes 
which had been tested by the United States Coast and Geo- 
detic Survey. A long series of comparisons of these tapes 
with the bar as graduated was made, for the purpose of de- 
termining the true length of the bar. The results were ad- 
justed by the method of least squares, giving 

100 feet— .0061 inch ± .0019 inch 

as the length of the bar at 62° Fahr. 

A simple and inexpensive apparatus for cleaning mercury, 
devised by Professor Crafts, and extensively used at the 
Massachusetts Institute of Technology, has been set up for 
the purpose of purifying the mercury used in our pressure 
gauges, and has proved entirely satisfactory. 

The average number of organisms for the year in samples 
of water collected at the effluent gate-house was 224 per c.c. 
The average number of organisms in samples taken from the 
surface, mid-depth, and bottom, near the centre of the reser- 
voir for nine months, was 245 per c.c. The organisms have 
as usual followed closely those of the sources from which the 
water was drawn. 

Tlie average number of organisms for the year at the taps 
in the city was 182 per c.c, as against 142 in 1895. 

Chestnut-Hjll Pumping Station. 

By your order, dated May 27, this pumping-station, for- 
merly in the Eastern Division, was placed in my charge, 
beginning June 1. 

Since that date the electric plant has been entirely over- 
hauled, a new dynamo and engine installed, and the wir- 



Water Department. 57 

ing put in proper condition under the supervision of the 
Commissioner of the Electrical Division, Public Buildings 
Department. 

Extensive repairs have been made by the Lock wood Man- 
ufacturing Company on Gaskill Engine No. 1, extending 
through the months of November and December. 

The coal-hoist has been improved by extending the plat- 
form and removing the old hopper, so that the bucket can be 
filled from the cars, thus doing away with one handling of 
the coal. 

A Cochrane Separator for removing the oil from the feed- 
water has been put in. An oil-filter has been set up, and a 
new exhaus1>pipe put in to heat the oil to be filtered. The 
Belpaire boiler was boiled out to remove the oil which had 
accumulated. 

New Johns grates have been put under the Belpaire boiler. 

A measurement over the Fisher Hill Weir of the water 
pumped by Engine No. 3 showed a slip of nearly 8 per cent. 
An examination of the pumps was accordingly made, and it 
was found that the plungers had worn so that there was a 
considerable space around them. Plans are now being made 
by Mr. E. D. Leavitt for stuffing boxes for the plungers. 

A large increase in the capacity of the pumping-plant will 
soon be required. The Metropolitan Water Board will be- 
fore the end of 1897 assume control of the pumping station. 

Brookline Reservoir. 

Grade, H. W., 125.00; Area, 12 acres; Greatest Depth, 24 feet; Contents, 
119,583,960 gals. 

Everything in connection with this reservoir is in good 
condition. No work other than maintenance has been done 
at this point during the year. 

For a number of years there has been a disagreement with 
the Assessors of Brookline, regarding the taxes assessed by 
them on lands of the city of Boston, lying in the town of 
Brookline. An understanding with the Town Engineer 
has been reached, according to which the areas taxable in 
Brookline are as stated by him in a communication to the 
Board of Assessors, of which the following is a copy : 

Town of Brookline, Office of Town Engineer. 

Town Hall, Brookline, Mass., Sept. 19, 1896. 

To the Assessors of Brookline : 

Gentlemen : On the 28th of July, at the request of your 
Board, I furnished you a statement of areas of lands in Brookline. 
owned by the city of Boston for water-works purposes. . 



58 City Document No. 32. 

Those areas were made up from the hest data then at hand. 
More recently, Mr. FitzG-erald has kiudly placed at my disposal data 
taken from the original records of lands purchased and taken, which 
modify to some extent the areas above referred to, so that for the 
purposes of assessment, the following areas should be used : 

The Boston Eeservoir, Boylston street, about 1,447,576 sq. ft. 
Aqueduct location from Chestnut Hill avenue to 

High-Service Pumping Station, about . . 299,593 " " 
Water-pipe location, Beacon street to Sumner 

Boad, about 232,880 " " 

Fisher-Hill Eeservoir land, about . . . 459,670" " 



Total 2,439,719 sq. ft. 

Kespectfully,

Fisher-Hill Reservoir. 

Grades, H. W., 241.00; Pipe inverts, 220.00; Depth, 21 feet; Contents, 16,400,000 

above 223 

This high service reservoir is in good condition. It has 
been maintained by the Chestnut-Hill Reservoir force. 

The wooden flap valve over the end of the branch pipe, 
leading to the 10-foot weir, was found to be leaking badly. 
It has accordingly been removed and rebuilt, and is now 
perfectly tight. 

The 5-foot measuring weir in the gate-house was found in 
very bad condition, so that it could not be used. It was 
therefore torn out, and a new one built in October. The 
crest of the new weir is about 1.70 feet higher than that of 
the old one, so that the reservoir need not be drawn so low 
as was formerly necessary in order to use the weir. The 
screens for " smoothing " the water as it approaches the weir 
are built in sections, and are so constructed that they can 
be removed from the gate-house when not needed, thus re- 
moving a slight obstruction to the flow of the water.

Biological Laboratory. 

During the year 1896, 1,568 microscopical examinations 
of water were made at the laboratory. Of these, 1,401 were 
of the regular weekly samples, and 167 were in connection 
with special investigations of the sources of supply. 

The usual number of bacteriological examinations were 
made, and it is hoped that in the future more prominence 
may be given to this side of the work. The work in 
bacteriology has been greatly facilitated by the introduction 
of gas into the laboratory and the use of a thermostat for 
growing cultures at 98° Fahr. 

Special attention has been given during the year to the 
indications obtained by the analyses of the regular samples 
collected from the different sources of supply, with a view of 
tracing the different growths of algae to their original sources 
and studying the causes. These investigations have been 
made the subject of special reports. As examples, may be 
mentioned the investigation of the connection between the 
presence of Uroglena in Chestnut-Hill Reservoir and Lake 
Cochituate, and the growth of Infusoria in the pockets at the 
head of Reservoir 6 ; the influence of the work on Dam 
No. 5 on the water of Reservoir 3. 

The estimation of the degree of turbidity by means of a 
disc, containing alternate dark and light quadrants, was 
studied in Lake Cochituate. 

The comparison of the effect of storage in Reservoirs 4 
and 6 was continued through the year, and it is hoped that 
general conclusions can be drawn from the results. 

The efficiency of the filter beds at Reservoir 6 was made 
the subject of study near the close of the year. 

Stagnation phenomena have been followed by means of the 
regular series of temperature observations taken at the 
different sources. 



60 City Document No. 32. 

The extent of circulation and mingling of water from the 
Cochituate and Sudbury aqueducts in the Chestnut-Hill 
Reservoir, was investigated by means of an extensive series 
of color readings. 

On account of the proposed increase in the use of White- 
hall pond (Reservoir 8) as a source of supply, samples will 
soon be collected from it regularly for examination. 

The following tables give first the average condition of the 
chemical analyses of the tap water as made under the direc- 
tion of the State Board of Health, and second the averages 
of monthly analyses of the sources of supply ; then follow 
biological tables, which are the result of the work in the 
laboratory at Chestnut-Hill Reservoir. Following these 
tables are the usual tables of detailed expenditure and rain- 
fall. 

Very truly yours, 

Desmond FitzGerald, 

General Superintendent. 



Water Department.

REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF THE 
EASTERN DIVISION. 



Office of Superintendent of Eastern Division, 

710 Albany Street, Boston, Feb. 1, 1897. 

Hon. John R. Murphy, 

Water Commissioner : 

Tlie annual report of the Eastern Division for the year 
ending Jan. 31, 1897, is respectfully submitted. 

During the year the Mystic Division was consolidated 
with the Eastern Division. A summary of the work of both 
divisions will therefore be given in this report, that of Som- 
erville, Chelsea and Everett being mentioned apart from 
that of the city of Boston. 

Main Pipe. 

City of Boston ; There were laid in the city of Boston 
during the year 35.4 miles of main pipe, nine miles more 
than were laid last year. Of the above amount, 8,655 feet 
were laid for private parties, and are not included in the 
total length of our system. Nine and eight-tenths miles of 
pipe were abandoned during the year, making the total 
length of our system (exclusive of Somerville, Chelsea and 
Everett), 658.9 miles. 

Of the 35.4 miles laid, 8.6 miles were relaid, or about three 
times as much as was relaid during the previous year. 
Relaying is always a difficult and costly kind of work, and, 
as much of this year's was in the business portions of the 
city, the conditions were unusually severe. 

The above totals do not include 3,188 feet of main pipe 
laid and 890 feet abandoned in connection with hydrants, 
" blow-offs," and reservoirs. 

Over the Boston and Albany railroad bridge on Hunting- 
ton avenue, 227 feet of 42-inch pipe were laid, thus connect- 
ing the two sections of the 42-inch high-service main laid in 
that street last year, and allowing the water to be turned 
on, supplying the downtown high-service district with addi- 
tional head. 

An isolated section of 36-inch pipe, 522 feet long, was 
laid in Ruthven street, Roxbury, between Humboldt avenue 
and Elm Hill avenue. This will be connected with the 



Water Department. 79 

section laid last year in Heath street, Roxbury, thus giving 
the Elm-Hill district sufficient service, and doing away with 
the necessity of a pumping-station at Wayne street. 

In Shirley Gut 540 feet of 8-inch flexible and 871 feet 
of 8-inch ordinary pipe were laid, and 540 feet of 8-inch 
flexible and 888 feet of 8-inch ordinary pipe abandoned. 
Between Squantum and Thompson's Island, 420 feet of 
6-inch pipe have been lowered and 100 feet relaid, and at 
Rainsford Island 660 feet of 6-inch flexible, 2,394 feet of 
4-inch flexible, and 824 feet of 4-inch ordinary pipe were 
laid, and 2,014 feet of 3-inch wrought iron and 510 feet 
4-inch ordinary pipe abandoned. 

During the year 1,783 feet of main pipe were lowered ; 
and on Tremont street, between Eliot and Boylston, 307 feet 
of 30-inch pipe were cut off and moved bodily by means of 
jack-screws and rollers a distance varying vertically, from 
at one end to 3 feet at the other, and horizontally, from at 
one end to 4 feet at the other. 

The main pipe work as a whole was of an exceedingly 
difficult nature, occasioned, as it was, by several causes, viz. : 
The construction of the Subway, which necessitated work of 
an extraordinary character, done under most unfavorable 
conditions ; the raising of the tracks on the Providence 
Division of the N.Y., N.H., & H. R.R., on account of which 
it was necessary to establish temporary mains and relocate 
permanent ones ; and lastly the extension and widening of 
Blue Hill, Columbus, Commonwealth, and Huntington 
avenues, which required a large amount of relaying and ex- 
tension, rendered unusually hard by the great number of 
connections made with the many streets which either inter- 
sect or lead from these avenues. 

iSomervitte, Chelsea and JEverett. — The distribution system 
has been extended by the addition of 128 feet of 3-inch pipe, 
19,952 feet of 6-inch pipe, 771 feet of 8-inch pipe, 6,272 
feet of 10-inch pipe, 1,084 feet of 12-inch pipe, 48 feet of 
16-inch pipe, and 140 feet of 20-inch pipe, making a total of 
28,395 feet added to the system. Forty-four thousand four 
hundred and eighty feet of pipe were relaid, replacing, as 
a rule, pipe of smaller sizes. 

Gates or Stop-Cocks. 
City of Boston. — During the year 594 gates were estab- 
lished, and 145 abandoned. Of the former 14 were "blow- 
off " and 15 private gates, and of the latter 3 were " blow- 
off " gates. All gates were inspected, oiled, and, where 
necessary, repaired. 



80 City Document No. 32. 

There are still in service a number of old-fashioned gates 
with rectangular trunks. They are known as " left-handed " 
gates on account of the direction in which the gearing works. 
These are all to be removed during the coming year, and 
gates of an improved pattern substituted. 

Somerville, Chelsea and Everett. — In these cities 180 gates 
were established and 59 abandoned, showing a net increase 
of 121, and making the total number of gates in use 1,794. 

Air-Cocks. 
City of Boston. — During the year 19 air-cocks were estab- 
lished and 2 renewed. 

Hydrants. 

City of Boston. — Five hundred and twenty-six hydrants were 
established and 271 abandoned, making a net increase for the 
year of 255, and a total of 7,066 connected with the system. 

We found in service this year more than 100 hydrants 
of an obsolete type. These hydrants are rapidly being re- 
placed with new ones of an improved type. 

Somerville, Chelsea and Everett. — There were established 
132 Post-Hydrants, and 38 were abandoned. This shows an 
increase of 94, making the total number of hydrants in use 
1,283, all of which are of the Post pattern. 

Water-Posts. 

City of Boston. — Eight new water-posts were established 
and one abandoned, making a total of 405 in use Jan. 31, 
1897. 

Somerville, Chelsea and Everett. — Twenty-eight water-posts 
were established in these cities, making a total of 96 now in 
use. 

Fountains. 

City of Boston. — One drinking fountain was established 
at the corner of Cottage and Maverick streets ; and one 
abandoned at Lamartine street, corner of Centre street, 
Koxbury. Careful attention has been given the fountains 
during the year, especially in regard to cleanliness. 

Somerville, Chelsea and Everett. — Three new drinking- 
fountains have been added to the number already in use. 

Service-Pipes. 
City of Boston. — Two thousand eight hundred and eight 
service pipes (68,547 feet) have been laid during the year, 



Water Department. 



81 



and 322 (8,057 feet) abandoned, showing a net increase of 
2,486 service-pipes (60,490 feet) for the year, and making 
the total number of pipes now in use 79,518 with a length 
of 2, 240,510 feet. Under the law governing the laying out of 
new streets, we were obliged to lay to vacant lots, 470 ser- 
vice-pipes with a total length of 10,221 feet, from which no 
revenue is at present derived. 

Somerville, Chelsea and Everett. — Seven hundred and 
seventy-seven new services were laid, distributed as follows : 
Somerville, 453 ; Chelsea, 93 ; Everett, 231, for which 17,675 
feet of pipe were required. 

Meters. 

City of Boston. — Three hundred and thirty-one meters 
have been applied, 406 discontinued, 1,520 changed, 441 re- 
paired in service, 254 repaired at factory, and 1,020 repaired 
in our own shop. The total number now in use is 4,827. 



Maintenance. 

City of Boston. — We have made 2,796 repairs on pipes 
during the year. Of those on main pipe we find the most 
numerous causes to be : 



Joints strained by settling in Subway 


406 


Defective joints ...... 


142 


Defective stop-cocks ..... 


119 


Defective packing ...... 


54 


Of those on service-pipes, which number 1,976, we 




find the causes most prevalent to be rust 


486 


Settling of earth . . . . 


219 


Relaying of main pipe ..... 


251 


Construction of Subway .... 


196 


Sewer construction ..... 


122 


Defective pipes . 


160 


Fish 


105 


Struck by pick ...... 


90 



A perusal of our statement of miscellaneous work per- 
formed will give an idea of how the department spent some 
of its time and money during the year. It will show among 
other things that 5,099 gate locations were either marked or 
re-marked; 2,799 hydrant boxes cleaned out; 1,955 hydrants 
repaired in service ; 841 examinations made on false reports ; 
570 gate or stop-cock boxes repaired in service ; 425 dead- 
ends blown off ; 349 hydrant boxes repaired in service ; 284 



82 City Document No. 32. 

water-posts repaired; and 212 gate or stop-cock boxes re- 
newed. 

All excavations in the streets that were likely to expose 
our pipes were carefully inspected, with a view of protecting 
said pipes from damage, and in all cases where corporations 
were at work laying conduits, etc., in the streets, an inspec- 
tion was made to prevent encroachment and the covering of 
our pipes by said corporations. 

Reservoirs and Stand-Pipes. 

Parker Hill and East Boston are both in good condition. 

South Boston. — This reservoir is not in use. 

College Hill. — Five hundred and twenty-five feet of the 
road around the reservoir and 850 feet of Capen street have 
been macadamized. The banks and walks have received the 
usual attention. 

Breed's Island Stand-pipe. — When the extensive repairs 
which are in progress on this building are completed, it will 
be in first-class condition. 

Mt. Bellevue Stand Pipe. — This building is in fairly good 
condition, but will require painting during the coming year. 
During the summer season it has been open to the public 
who seem to appreciate the opportunity offered of viewing 
the surrounding country. 

Fire Reservoirs. 
During the year on account of the construction of the 
Subway, the following fire reservoirs were abandoned. 

Tremont street at Boylston. 

« " " Hollis. 

" " " Park. 

" " " School. 

Hanover " 
Haymarket square. 

Ptjmping-St ations . 
Mystic. — Engine No. 2 received a thorough overhauling 
and is in good condition. On Engine No. 3 the foot valve 
was repaired. On Engine No. 4 a new air-chamber was 
placed and all the water valves were faced with three-eighth 
inch rubber. The rock-shaft stand was too weak, so was 
replaced by a stronger one and braced. The large dash- 
pot shaft was removed and a lighter one substituted. 
Metallic packing was put on the piston rods. The dynamo 



Water Department. 83 

being defective was replaced by one from Chestnut-Hill 
station. The boilers received slight repairs, and a new brick 
floor was laid in the boiler-room. The road on the west 
side of the pumping station was regraded, a part of the 
walk in front of the station was concreted, and the railroad 
track repaired. 

West Roxbury. — This station is in good condition. The 
exhaust steam and coal gas complained of as a nuisance by 
the residents in the vicinity have been cared for by exhaust- 
ing into an iron pipe, placed within the chimney. The build- 
ing and chimney have been pointed and other repairs made. 

Wayne Street. — Although a temporary station, improve- 
ments have been made during the year, so that at present it 
answers the required purposes. 

East Boston. — This station is in general good condition. 

Yards. 

Albany Street. — It has been necessary to enlarge the 
machine shop and purchase new machinery in order to meet 
the increased demand for hydrants, gates, and service-fittings. 
The stable, which was erected in March, 1890, has proved to 
be very unsafe, and on that account it was necessary to 
almost entirely reconstruct it. The work is not yet 
complete, and in the meantime the horses are being cared 
for in temporary quarters. 

Dorchester, Brighton, East Boston, and Qharlestoivn. — 
These yards have been given the usual attention, and are in 
good condition. 

West Roxbury. — This district is sorely in need of proper 
headquarters. The present facilities are entirely inadequate. 
For a year or more it has been necessary to hire a yard at 
some distance, where extra accommodations could be had. 
This division of our stock and property between the two 
yards makes it inconvenient to transact business, and I 
would earnestly recommend that more ample provision be 
made for this rapidly growing district. 

Mystic Lake. 
From January 1 to January 7, water was wasted over the 
dam, and from January 25 to May 2, and from December 10 
to December 25, was wasting almost constantly. On August 
24, with the surface 8.73 feet below high water, the pumps 
were started, and pumping continued until September 9, 
when the water had risen sufficiently to gravitate to the 
pumping-station. On September 5, the elevation of the 
lake was .88 feet above the conduit invert, within 1.79 feet 



84 City Document No. 32. 

of the lowest point ever reached. During the year separators 
were connected with the engines, and a new cylinder was 
obtained for Engine No. 2, a new floor was laid in engine 
room No. 2, and the fence on the Arlington road was rebuilt. 
The rainfall on the Mystic water-shed for the past twelve 
months was as follows : 

February .... 5.28 August 2.90 

March 5.19 September .... 7.78 

April 1.99 October .... 3.32 

May 2.13 November .... 3.56 

June 2.51 December .... 2.39 

July 2.45 January .... 3.95 

Total 43.45 inches. 

Conduit. 
The two gates in the gate-chamber were repaired. New 
valve rods were substituted and the gearing rearranged. The 
old ten to one gears were replaced by gears four to one, thus 
greatly facilitating the operation of the gates. On the 
"blow-off" pipe, outside the pipe chamber, a 30-inch gate 
was placed. The conduit was flushed six times during the 
year. 

Water-Sources. 

The chemical treatment of the effluent from Tidd's and 
Fitzgerald's tanneries has been abandoned, as both tanneries 
are now connected with the Metropolitan sewer system. 

A summary of the inspection work for the past year is as 
follows : Total number of cases inspected, 532 ; of these 
there are old cases, 527 ; new cases, 5. The present con- 
dition of all inspected cases is : Present safe, 340 ; seem safe, 
15 ; suspected, 8 ; unsatisfactory, 21 ; remedied, 148. Seven 
legal notices were served. 

Deacon and Waste Service. 
The Deacon meter service has been re-established, and the 
results of its work in the detection of leaks and waste have 
been satisfactory. The Inspectors of Waste have found 
2,810 defective fixtures, inspected 15,288 houses, made 
2,635 waste reports, and re-examined 2,411 premises. 

Appended you will find tables showing details of the work 
performed. 

Yours respectfully, 

Hugh McNulty, 
General Superintendent Eastern Division.

Hon. John R. Murphy, 

Water Commissioner : 

Sir : I hereby submit the following report of the work 
done and records kept during the past year : — 



Sources of Supply. 

The rainfall during the year 1896 was about 10 per cent 
below the average for the past thirty-four years and the con- 
ditions so serious as to arouse fears of a scarcity of water, 
which fortunately were not realized. 

The rainfall and quantities collected on the several water- 
sheds were as follows : — 





Sudbury. 


Cochituate. 


Mystic.

so continued until April 13, when the flash-boards were 
placed in position. 

On April 16 waste began over the flash-boards and con- 
tinued until May 1. On August 7 the flash-boards were 



136 City Document No. 32. 

removed from the dam. On November 7 the water surface

mated Area, 185 acres ; Estimated Contents, 1,530,300,000 gals. 

On Jan. 1, 1896, the water surface in this reservoir was 
at grade 294.39 and water was wasting over the dam, and so 
continued until April 13, with the exception of March 19, 
20, 21 and 22. 

On April 13 one set of flash-boards was placed on the 
dam, and on April 17 the second set was placed in position. 

On April 20 the second set was removed and waste 
occurred from April 20 to April 28, on which date the second 
set was again placed upon the dam. Water wasted over 
the dam from May 3 to May 14, also from May 29 to June 
20. On August 14 the flash-boards were removed. On 
August 1 the water surface began to fall and reached its 
lowest point on November 20, being 32.31 feet below the 
crest of the dam on that date, since then it has been gradually 
filling, and on Feb. 1, 1897, the water surface was at grade

Whitehall Pond. 

Elevation, H.W., 327.91; Bottom of Gates, 317.78. Area at 327.91, 601 acres; con- 
tents, between S27. 91 and 317.78, 1,256,900,000 gals. 

On Jan. 1, 1896, the water surface was at grade 325.29, 
or 2.62 feet below high water. It reached grade 326.52 on 
April 20, and remained at about this height until July 1, 
when the water surface began to fall slowly, being at grade 
324.70 on November 2. Since that date it has remained at 
about this grade, being, on Feb. 1, 1897, at grade 325.45. 
Water was drawn from the lake for the supply of the city 
from January 1 to March 29, from September 16 to October 
14, and from November 17 to 30. 

It was decided to build a temporary dam, in order to raise 
the water in this basin two feet ; this work is now in progress. 
The storage capacity will be increased about 400,000,000 
gallons.

Aqueducts and Distributing Reservoirs. 

The Sudbury -river aqueduct has been in use 359.6 days, 
and has delivered 14,857,300,000 gallons to Chestnut-hill 
reservoir and 35,500,000 gallons to Lake Cochituate. The 
Cochituate aqueduct has been used 362.4 days and delivered 
5,731,790,000 gallons. 

Both aqueducts have been cleaned during the year. The 
different distributing reservoirs are in good condition. 

High-Service Pumping Stations. 

The daily average quantity pumped at the Chestnut-hill 
pumping station was 28 per cent, more than in 1895. 
Engine No. 1 was run 804 hours 45 

minutes, pumping . . . 301,560,800 gallons. 

Engine No. 2 was run 758 hours 35 

minutes, pumping . . . 286,377,150 gallons.

At the West Roxbury pumping-station the daily average 
quantity pumped was 253,200 gallons, an increase of 41.3 
per cent, over the amount pumped in the previous year. At 
the East Boston pumping-station 483,000 gallons per day 
have been pumped for the supply of the high-service dis- 
trict, and 57,600 gallons per day for the Breed's Island high- 
service. Owing to the non-completion of the 36-inch high- 
service line through Roxbury, it was necessary to maintain 
the pumping plant on Blue Hill avenue and Wayne street 
during the year, and to keep it in constant service. 

Mystic Lake. 

On Jan. 1, 1896, the water surface was .96 feet below 
high water ; waste was then occurring over the dam and 



Water Department. 141 

continued until May 2, excepting the period between 
January 9 and 24. 

The water surface, which on May 2 was at grade 6.75, 
gradually fell, reaching its lowest point on September 5 ; 
the water surface being at grade — 3.26, or 10.26 feet below 
high water. 

Filling gradually from September 5, it reached grade 6.40 
on December 12. Waste occurred over stop-planks on dam 
from December 10 to 25 ; from Jan. 6 to 11, 1897, and from 
Jan. 22 to 24, 1897. On Feb. 1, 1897, the water surface 
was at grade 5.85. The fishway was opened on April 15, 
and was kept open until June 12, when it was closed, and re- 
mained so during the rest of the year. The dam at the out- 
let of the lake is in good condition. 

Mystic Conduit and Reservoir. 

The conduit has been cleaned several times during the 
year. 

Mystic Pumping Station. 

The daily average quantity pumped at the Mystic station 
was 26.2 per cent more than in 1895. 

Engine No. 1 was run 1,962 hours 15 

minutes, pumping . . . 421,731,900 gallons. 

Engine No. 2 was run 1,030 hours 45

Distribution. 

On the Cochituate Works 33.8 miles of pipe were laid and 
9.8 miles abandoned, making a net increase of 24 miles 
and a total of 620 miles now connected with the system. 
Early in the spring a 16-inch high service main was laid 
from Upham's Corner to Thomas Park by way of Boston, 
Dorchester and Telegraph streets, affording an additional 
supply for the South Boston high service district and making 
the reservoir on Thomas Park, which the city contem- 
plated taking for a high school site, no longer necessary. 
The length of pipe laid was 8,491 feet, of which amount 
3,667 feet was laid by contract; this line is not yet in ser- 
vice and will be used only in an emergency until the com- 
pletion of the 36-inch, 30-inch and 20-inch mains through 
Roxbury and Dorchester. 

The 24-inch low service main in Dorchester was extended 
from Dorchester avenue and East street, through Dorchester 
avenue and Adams street, a distance of 3,888 feet, all the 
work being done by contract. This extension has increased 
the minimum head at the Lower Mills 7 feet, as shown in 
Table 6. A further extension of this line to Milton Lower 
Mills should be made during the coining season. 



144 City Document No. 32. 

In June the 42-inch high service main was completed and 
placed in service;' as shown on Table No. 6 the minimum 
head in the city proper was increased nearly 20 feet. During 
the months of October and November it was decided to put 
the 48-inch high service main in Brookline out of service 
during the construction of a sewer by the Town of Brook- 
line in Walnut street, in close proximity to the water pipe, 
the excavation for the sewer being largely in solid rock ; the 
reduction in pressure and the consequent small consumption 
in gallons on the high service can be seen in Tables VI. and 
VII., on pages 156, 157 and 158. In September, for the bet- 
ter protection of East Boston, in case of fire, and also to give 
an adequate supply for domestic use, a 20-inch low service 
main was laid from the corner of Brooks and Condor streets 
to Central square by way of Condor and Border streets, the 
length laid being 3,773 feet, of which amount 2,131 feet was 
laid by contract. This line has increased the minimum head 
12 feet. During the coming season it is intended to extend 
the 20-inch pipe in Border street to Maverick street and to 
lay a 16-inch line to Maverick square. 

In May of this year an 8-inch pipe, with Ward's flexi- 
ble joints, was laid across Shirley gut to replace the two 
lines of similar pipe laid in 1870 ; the latter had been broken 
a number of times, and were entirely exposed to a blow from 
passing vessels on the Deer Island shore; as a matter of fact 
both were broken in this way before water was turned on 
the new line. The work was done, under contract, by George 
W. Townsend ; the pipe was first jointed on the Winthrop 
shore, upon rollers, and was then hauled across the gut, 
empty oil barrels being lashed to it to facilitate the work ; 
it is laid in a trench, excavated six feet deep on each shore to 
low water mark, at that point the trench decreases in depth 
until it is one foot deep at the middle of the channel. 

No trouble was experienced during the past winter with 
the service between the islands in the harbor ; while the cold 
was severe at times, it was not long continued. The precau- 
tion was taken of tapping the pipes on each island at high 
water mark ; during a cold snap the temperature of the 
water in the pipes was taken daily at the different points 
established. In this way the exact conditions are known, 
and danger of freezing can probably be averted. 

Sectional plans of the city proper on a scale of 50 feet to 
the inch are being prepared ; they are based entirely upon 
actual surveys. 

The distributing mains connected with the Mystic Works 
have been extended 5.4 miles and 0.05 miles have been re- 



Water Department. 145 

laid. The total length, now in service is 184 miles. There 
has been an increase of 253 in the number of hydrants con- 
nected with the Cochituate Works, making a total now in 
use of 6,711. On the Mystic Works 96 hydrants have been 
added, and the total now in use is 1,639 ; 243 petitions for 
main pipe have been reported upon, and 64 contracts for 
rock excavation have been made. Various profiles have been 
made, levels taken and lines and grades furnished for the 
main pipe laying. All pipe laid has been located and plotted 
on the plans. 

Appended to this report will be found the usual tables of 
rainfall, consumption, etc., for the past year, and, in addition, 
tables are given of the rainfall, rainfall collected, and per- 
centage collected on the Cochituate water-shed since 1863, 
on the Sudbury river water-shed since 1875, and on the 
Mystic water-shed since 1878. These will be found valuable 
for future reference. 

Yours respectfully, 

William Jackson, 

City Engineer.
