Office of the Water Commissioner, 

City Hall, Boston, February 1, 1900. ' 

Hon. Thomas N. Hart, 

Mayor of Boston : 

Dear Sir, — I submit herewith the fifth annual report 
of the Water Commissioner for the year ending January 31, 
1900. 

I received my appointment as Water Commissioner on the 
23d of December, and qualified on the 28th of December, 
1899. As I did not assume the duties of the office until 
nearly the end of the financial year I shall not attempt to 
make any elaborate report on the operations of the depart- 
ment during the past year, but shall confine mj^self to a gen- 
eral statement of the financial condition of the department 
at the end of the year, as shown by the reports of the differ- 
ent heads of divisions, and shall make such suggestions as 
have occurred to me during my brief occupancy of the office. 

It appears by the statements herewith annexed that the 
total receipts from all sources during the year were i 2,28 9,- 
739.50 ; less refunded water rates, 1906.87 ; making the net 
receipts $2,288,832.63. The total current expenditures of 
the Water Works from revenue for the year ending Jan- 
uary 31, 1900, including interest on funded debt, sinking- 
fund requirements, 1898-99, and the Metropolitan water 
assessment, were $1,992,581.91; leaving a balance, which 
was transferred to the general revenue of the city, of 
$296,250.72. 

In addition to this balance there is now due from other 
city departments for water about $218,000, which amount, ■ 
if added to the above balance, would show a net surplus of 
$514,250.72 



2 City Document No. 41. 

The cost of construction on February 1, 1899, was $22,- 
243,663.40, and on February 1, 1900, the cost of construc- 
tion was if'22,689,783.75 ; showing an increase during the 
year of $446,120.35. This amount, added to the item of 
expenditures from revenue during the year, makes the gross 
expenditures of the department $2,438,702.26. 

The net water debt on February 1, 1899, was 87,634,- 
154.10, and on February 1, 1900, the water debt was 
17,436,050.08 ; showing a decrease of $198,104.02. 

The amount of outstanding water loans on February 1, 
1899, was $17,121,273.98, and on February 1, 1900, was 
$17,306,273.98 ; showing an increase during the year of 
$185,000. 

The Metropolitan water assessment during the year was 
$411,861.54. This amount is likely to be increased from 
year to year for several years. 

When I assumed the duties of Water Commissioner there 
were on the rolls of the department, employed and unem- 
plo^^ed, 997 men. It was apparent that this number was 
largely in excess of the requirements of the department, and 
my first duty, which was very disagreeable and painful, was 
to reduce the force by discharging and suspending a large 
number of employees. I set about this difficult task with 
no personal knowledge of the qualifications of the men, but, 
as the reduction in numbers and expense was absolutely 
necessary, I gathered such information as I could from the 
superintendent and others, and discharged, as far as possible, 
those who were of least service to the department. 

It is unfortunate that no scheme has ever been devised to 
keep men steadily employed throughout the year, but the 
work is of such a nature that it is impossible to employ to 
advantage as many men during the winter months as can be 
profitably employed during the summer season. It seems to 
me it would be better if a limited number of men, including 
those who have rendered long and faithful service, could be 
permanently employed throughout the year, so as not to be 
subjected by discharge to the hardships which thus neces- 
sarily fall upon men who have for many years had no other 
training or experience except that pertaining to the duties 
of the Water Department. It seems to me that there should 
be a permanent force, consisting of men who have rendered 
faithful service in the department for fifteen years or more, 
and who should not be discharged except for some fault of 
their own. So far as possible the men in this list, who have 
received injuries in the performance of their duties, or have 
been rendered incapable of performing hard work, should be 
placed on a " special roll " by themselves and given the 



Water Depakttvient. 3 

lighter work in tlie department, such as that of watchman, 
stableman, tallyman, water boy, light teaming, errand- work, 
etc. Much of this work has heretofore been done by vigor- 
ous and able-bodied men who are capable of doing more 
laborious work. It is my intention to select some of these 
older and infirm men and put them on a permanent or 
"special" roll, so that they may have the special privileges. 

The property now in control of the Boston Water De- 
partment is as follows : 

Brookline Eeservoir, situated in Brookline, with a capacity of 
115,000,000 gallons ; area of property, 1,447,576 square feet. 

Fisher Hill Reservoir, Brookline, with a capacity of 
15,000,000 gallons; area of property, 459,670 square feet.

7,200,000 gallons ; area of property, 197,614 square feet. 

East Boston Reservoir, on Eagle Hill, East Boston, with 
a capacity of 6,000,000 gallons ; area of property, 220,875 
square feet. 

South Boston Reservoir lot, a remainder of 44,925 square 
feet. 

West Roxbuiy pumping station, located on the corner of 
Washington street and Metropolitan avenue. West Roxbury, 
which contains two 10-inch by 7-inch by 12-inch Blake 
duplex pumps and two 42-inch diameter vertical fn-e-tube 
boilers. 

High service tank on Mt. Bellevue, West Roxbury ; 
capacity, 122,000 gallons. 

High service tank on Orient Heights ; capacity, 122,000 
gallons ; area of property, 11,395.5 square feet. 

Machine shop, stable, wharf and pipe yard on Albany 
street; area of property, 98,100 square feet. 

Workshop and stable, corner Medford and Tufts streets, 
Charles town ; area of property, 13,050 square feet. 

East Boston pumping station and a lot containing 114,840 
square feet. 

Aqueduct location, Chestnut Hill avenue, to high ser- 
vice pumping station, 299,593 square feet.

line ; area of property, 232,880 square feet.

the mains to East Boston ; area, 24,200 square feet. 

Strip of land at Point Shirley, Winthrop, containing 7,725 
square feet.

\ 

The main pipes leading from the receiving reservoirs in 
Brooklme and Brighton to the city and the distributing 
pipes laid in the City Proper, South Boston, East Boston, 
Roxbury, Dorchester, West Roxbury, Brighton, Charlestown, 
etc. Total length 706.2 miles, varying in size from 2 to 48 
inches in diameter. Also the Cochituate aqueduct from 
Brookline Reservoir to Chestnut Hill pumping station. 

The Brookline Reservoir will, during the coming year, be 
taken out of service on account of the going into com- 
mission of the low service pumping station at Chestnut 
Hill, which is, being built by the Metropolitan Water Board. 
This property consists of 1,447,576 feet of land, which, to- 
gether with 299,593 square feet of land over and adjacent 
to the aqueduct, should be sold, and the proceeds credited to 
the water account, reserving to the city the right to use the 
aqueduct, to lay water pipes in the aqueduct location, and to 
lay a pipe connecting it with the existing pipes in Boylston 
street, Brookline, below the gate-house. 

Fisher Hill Reservoir, Brookline, with a capacity of 
15,000,000 gallons, area of property 459,670 square feet, 
with the main pipes running from Chestnut Hill Reservoir 
to Fisher Hill, and in Fisher Hill avenue to Boylston street, 
should be taken by the Metropolitan Water Board, as there 
is at present, in reference to the management of this property, 
a divided responsibility between the City of Boston and the 
Metropolitan Water Board. 

Parker Hill Reservoir, Roxbury, with a capacity of 7,200,- 
000 gallons, area of property 197,614 square feet, is of little 
value to the city as an adjunct to its water service, and if it 
were not in existence nobody would advise its construction 
as a part of the system, its only value being that, in case of 
the failure of all of the main pipes leading in to Boston 
from Fisher Hill Reservoir, a few hours' supply could be 
drawn upon from Parker Hill. 

The East Boston Reservoir on Eagle Hill, East Boston, 
with a capacity of 6,000,000 gallons, area of property 220,- 
875 square feet, is at present out of service, its only value 
to the water service being that in case of break in the two 
mains leading across Chelsea bridge there would be a three 
days' supply stored in East Boston. 

An arrangement has been made with the Metropolitan 
Water Board to lay a new 24-inch main across Chelsea creek 
to supply East Boston, which will replace the old main laid 
fifty years ago, and will furnish two lines of pipe across 
Chelsea creek. The City Engineer is of the opinion that 
another and independent line of pipes should be run to East 
Boston before the East Boston Reservoir is abandoned. 



Water Department. 5 

The city still owns a part of the South Boston Reservoir 
lot, a portion of which was taken by the School Committee 
for a high school building. As the remainder is of no value 
to the water-supply system I would recommend that it be 
disposed of. 

The West Roxbury pumping station for supplying water 
to the Bellevue Hill service was leased to the Metropolitan 
Water Board on the thirtieth day of January, 1899, in 
accordance with the following agreement : 

^ [Copy.] 

The Metropolitan Water Board, consisting of Henry H. 
Sprague, Wilmot R. Evans, and Henry P. Walcott, and the City 
of Boston, by John R. Mm-phy, Water Commissioner of said 
City, agree as follows : 

Article 1. Said Board shall occupy and use the land and 
buildings known as the West Roxbury pumping station, and the 
pumps, boilers, and other structures and appliances contained 
therein, said station being situate on the corner of Washington 
street and Metropolitan avenue, in that part of said Boston 
which was formerly West Roxbury, and known as the West 
Roxbury District ; shall draw from the water pipes of said City 
now or hereafter laid or maintained in Washington street, oppo- 
site said pumping station, water; shall supply with such water 
the high service district of said West Roxbury, and may supply 
the districts of Hyde Park and Milton, and may use therefor in 
common with said City of Boston the stand-pipe on Mt. Bellevue, 
the pipes of said City of Boston between the pumping station 
and the stand-pipe, and the pipes of said City of Boston between 
the pumping station and the line between West Roxbury and 
Hyde Park." 

Article 2. Said Board shall cause to be paid to the City of 
Boston for the right to occupy and use said building, pipes, pumps 
and other structures and appliances, the sum of nine hundred and 
twenty (920) dollars per annum from the date hereof, and if 
said Metropolitan Water Board shall use said building, pipes, 
pumps, and other structures and appliances, or any of them, and 
supply thereby the said towns of Hyde Park and Milton, said 
Board shall from and after tlie time it commences such supply 
pay to said City of Boston an additional sum, said sum to be the 
proportion of twelve hundred (1,200) dollars which the quantity 
pumped in said building for such supply bears to the full quantity 
pumped at the station, this proportion to be determined from time 
to time by the parties to this agreement. 

Article 3. Said Board shall have the right to make such 
changes and additions to the building as said Board may deem 
necessary ; shall keep the building in good repair ; and on the 
termination of this agreement shall deliver up the premises men- 
tioned in the first paragraph hereof in as good order, ordinary 
wear and tear excepted, as when taken into its possession. 

Article 4. Said Board shall have the riglit to place in the 



6 City Document No. 41. 

building such machinery as said Board may deeni necessary, witli 
the right of removing the same when the use of the station by the 
Board shall be abandoned ; also the right to remove at any time 
and deliver to the City of Boston, at the pipe-yard on Albany 
street in said city, any portion of the machinery now in the 
station, and there shall be a reduction of nine (9) dollars per an- 
num in the rental to be paid for every one hundred (100) dollars 
in value of such machinery so delivered, said value to be based 
on the original cost of the machinery, as estimated by the City 
Engineer of the City of Boston. 

Article 5. This agreement shall continue for the term of ten 
years from the date hereof ; provided, hoxoever, that it may be 
terminated and the use of the building, pumps and other struct- 
ures and appliances abandoned by the Metropolitan Water Board 
whenever said Board shall by other means supply said district of 
West Roxbury with water. 

Signed this thirtieth day of January, A.D. 1899. 

Henry H. S Prague, 
WiLMOT E. Evans, 
Henry P. Walcott, 
Metropolitan Water Board. 
City of Boston, 

By 

John E. Murphy, 

Water Commissioner of the City of Boston. 



Since April 21, 1898, the water supply for the high ser- 
vice tank on Orient Heights has been pumped by the Metro- 
politan Water Board, and the service at the East Boston 
pumping station abandoned. The East Boston pumping 
station, with a lot of land containing 114,840 square feet, 
situated on Condor street and bordering on Chelsea creek, is 
of no further use as a part of the water supply and could be 
disposed of, reserving to the city the necessary rights for 
maintaining the main supply pipes to East Boston. 

The Metropolitan Water Board proposes to take the 
water-pipes in Chelsea from the Boston side of the Chelsea 
norith draw to and across Chelsea creek, with the lands 
owned by the city on Marginal street, Chelsea, in which are 
laid the mains to East Boston. In connection with this 
taking the Metropolitan Water Board will build a new 
siphon at the Chelsea north draw, and will lay a new 24-inch 
pipe across Chelsea creek. 

The reports in detail of the work performed in the Income 
Division, the Distribution Division, and the Engineer's 
Department, will be found herewith annexed. 

Respectfully, 

Augustus P. Martin, 

Water Commissioner.

Hon. a. p. Maetin, 



Wate?' Commissioner : 

Sir, — Herewith please find annual report of the Income

ing January 31, 1900 ; the balance of the report is rendered 
for the calendar year ending December 31, 1899, it being 
impracticable, owing to the nature of the accounts, to render 
an entire report for the financial year. 

Respectfully submitted,

The abatements allowed on account of 1899 assessments, amounting to $25,106.35, 
were due to changes in occupancy of premises, changes in ownership, vacancies, 
errors in valuations and assessments, inaccuracy ot meters as proved by tests, under- 
ground leaks for which the owner could not be held entirely responsible, and for 
other reasons, which, in the judgment of the General Superintendent, entitled the 
water-taker to consideration. 

The abatements on account of 1898, 1897 and 1896, were due to bills uncollectible, 
changes of ownership, failures, shut-off for non-payment and cleaning up old 
accounts.

Deacon Service. 

The Deacon meters were placed in operation for the year 
on April 3, 1899, and their work ceased on December 7, 
1899. During this period 62 meters were operated, from 
which 706 diagrams were obtained, being 356 readings, of 24 
hours each, and 350 night tests, giving the results of read- 
ings and tests of 149 sections. These diagrams were de- 
livered to the City Engineer for compilation. 

The Deacon meters in Charlestown could not be operated 
on account of the high service having so many dead ends 
that the meter work would interfere with the supply in 
streets surromiding the sections. 

The Adams-street meters, Nos. 1 and 2, could not be 
operated, on account of work being done on mains in the 
district. 

The Columbia-street meter was abandoned, and was reset 
at Compton and Castle streets. 

The meters were not in operation for three days during 
the season, the men having been detailed to enumerate the 
persons using water from the cold-water fountains. 

Tests for electrical decomposition of water pipes were 
made on 91 days, during May, August, September, October, 
November and December. 



34 



City Document No. 41. 



The work of the inspectors durmg the year was confined 
to detecting waste in sections of the city where the Deacon 
meters had located excessive waste of water, with the excep- 
tion of the months of February and March, 1899, when tlie 
work was in sections not covered by Deacon meters. 

The following tables set forth the work of the Inspectors 
for the year :

APPENDIX B. 



REPORT OF THE DISTRIBUTION DIVISION. 



Office of the Supebintendent, 
710 Albany Street, February 1, 1900. 

Hon. a. p. Martin, 

Water Commissioner : 

I herewith submit the annual report of the Distribution 
Division for the year ending January 31, 1900. 

Main Pipe. 

During the year there were laid 27.4 miles of main pipe. 
Ten and five-tenths miles were abandoned, making the total 
length of the distribution system 706.1 miles. 

Of the 27.4 miles laid, 10 miles were relaid, an unusually 
great amount. 

In addition to the above, and not included in the total 
length of our distribution system, there were laid 3,445 feet 
of hydrant, blow-off, and reservoir pipe, and 1,504 feet of 
the same class were abandoned. 

Eight thousand five hundred and fifteen feet of main pipe 
of various sizes was either raised, lowered, or moved later- 
ally. This work was necessitated by the various operations 
of the Street Department, railroad, and other corporations 
throughout the city. 

The year's work was chiefly noticeable for the great 
amount of relaying done in the older districts where the 
supply mains were quite inadequate to the requirements of 
domestic and fire service. 

Considei^ble work was done in the new sections of the 
city, principall}^ in Commonwealth-avenue extension, where 
over 10,000 feet of 12-inch pipe was laid. 

The 24-inch West Roxbury high service line was com- 
pleted in South and Centre streets as far as Beech street 
and there reduced to 20 inches. This was then laid to 
Spring street. Connections on this line were made at 
Beech, La Grange and Spring streets. The line is a valuable 



42 City Document No. 41. 

acquisition to the high service in the West Roxbury 
district. 

The low service in the City Point district of South Boston 
was reinforced by 20-inch, 16-inch, and 12-inch mains laid 
through Third and Q streets. 

The work of further extending the 30-inch high service 
main in Washington street, Dorchester, was recently resumed, 
and is now being pushed forward, so that before long the 
extreme sections of the Dorchester district will feel the 
effects of this additional supply. 

In Washington street, city proper, between Bojdston and 
Kneeland streets a section of 20-inch pipe was laid, giving 
an improved service in the vicinity of the Southern Union 
Station. 

In the Brighton district the fire service was augmented by 
laying a 16-inch line in Spurr street, connecting with the 
Metropolitan Water Works main, and by increasing the size 
of the Western-avenue main from 12 to 16 inches. 

Gates oe Stop-Cocks. 

Five hundred and seventy gates were established and 225 
abandoned; of the former 18 were " blow-off " and 1 was 
" private," and of the latter 5 were " blow-off " and 1 was 
"private." The total number of gates in use, exclusive of 
"blow-off" and "private" gates, is 8,671. The gates and 
their boxes have been looked after with care, as reference to 
our " statement of miscellaneous work performed " will show. 

Air-Cocks. 
Fifteen air-cocks were established and 1 abandoned. 

Blow-off Cocks. 
Three were established. 

Deacon Meters. 

One was established at the corner of Tremont and Comp- 
ton streets, to take the place of the one abandoned last year 
at the corner of Castle and Tremont streets, on account of 
railroad operations at that point. 

Check Valves. 

Check valves were established and abandoned as follows : 

Established, 1 10-inch in Auburn street, at Bunker Hill 
street, Charlestown. 



Water Department. 43 

Established, 1 8-incli in Bunker Hill street, at Pearl street, 

Charlestown. 
Abandoned, 1 8-inch in Walter street, at Hewlett street. 

West Roxbuiy. 
Abandoned, 1 8-inch in Fairview street, between South and 

Symmes streets. West Roxbury. 

Hydrants. 

Four hundred and eighty-three hydrants were established 
and 367 abandoned. The total number connected with our 
system is 7,484. The usual attention was given the main- 
tenance of these most important fixtures, a glance at our 
" statement of miscellaneous work performed " giving an idea 
of the same. We have recently begun the manufacture of 
the " Bachelder " pattern of hydrant on a somewhat larger 
scale than formerly, and before long we shall be able to 
install this improved type of hydrant more generally than 
was the custom. 

Three thousand three hundred and twenty-one bags of salt 
were purchased by this department and delivered to the Fire 
Department to be used on hydrant covers during the cold 
weather. 

Water-Posts. 

Fifty-one water-posts were established and 12 abandoned, 
making a total now in use of 494. The usual attention was 
paid to their maintenance. 

Fountains. 

During the year drinking fountains were established as 
follows: Twenty-four " cold water," 2 "ordinary" for man 
and beast, 1 ordinary for man only, and 3 for beasts only. 
There were abandoned, 3 ordinary for man and beast and 
2 for beasts only. We also changed two " cold water " foun- 
tains to " ordinaries " for men only. This makes the total 
now in use 121, of which 32 are "cold water" fountains. 

Service Pipes. 

Two thousand three hundred service pipes (55,647 feet) 
have been laid during the year, and 338 (7,901 feet) aban- 
doned, showing a net increase of 1,962 service pipes (47,746 
feet) for the year, and making the total number of pipes now 
in use 86,091, with a length of 2,391,171 feet. 

Under the law governing the laying out of new streets, 
we were obliged to lay to vacant lots 481 service pipes from 



44 City Document No. 41. 

which no revenue is at present derived. These are included 
in the figures above. 

Maintenance. 

Many repairs of a various nature have been made on main 
and service pipes during the year for causes of which see 
table appended. The " statement of miscellaneous work 
performed," also appended, will give an idea of some of the 
work necessary to the maintenance of the department. 

Considerable changing and relocating of pipes was neces- 
sitated this year by the operations of the Boston Elevated 
Railway, and the Massachusetts Pipe Line Gas Company. 

The various yards, buildings, reservoirs and properties of 
the department have been given the usual care and attention, 
and are all in first-class condition. A portion of the stable 
at the Albany-street yard has been set apart and fitted up as 
quarters for an emergency wagon. Facilities for a " quick 
hitch " and rapid despatch of the wagon to wherever it 
may be needed were installed. 

Fire Reservoirs. 

The following fire reservoirs and their connections with 
our system (including seven 4-inch gates) were abandoned : 

Washington street, near Dover street, opposite old 
Franklin School-house. 

Washington street, at Union Park street. 

Leverett street, near Spring street. 

Washington street, at Kneeland street. 

Derne street, between Hancock and Bowdoin streets. 

Somerset street, between Howard street and Ashburton 
place. 

Atlantic avenue, near Essex street. 

Harbor Service. 

Aside from the usual care and attention given our pipes 
in the harbor district, nothing of note was done except the 
extension by about 1,400 feet of the additional 12-inch sup- 
ply on Moon Island, between the gate-house and the sea 
wall. 

Appended you will find tables showing details of the work 
performed, and upon page 156 a schedule of the stock and 
property owned by the department. 
Yours respectfully, 

William J. Welch, 

Superintendent. 



Water Department.

APPENDIX C. 



REPORT OF THE ENGINEER. 



Engineering Department, 

50 City Hall, February 1, 1900. 

Gen. a. p. Maetin, 

Water Commissioner : 

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

During the past year 27.4 miles of main pipe have been 
laid and 10.5 miles abandoned, making a net increase of 16.9 
miles, and a total length in the system of 706.1 miles ; the 
pipe laid can be classified as follows : 

Miles. 

(1) Extension of large supply mains . . . 2.2 

(2) Extension for new buildings (by petition) . 7.1 

(3) Work done in advance of street construction Q.Q 

(4) Relaying old or small mains . . . .8.5 

(5) Miscellaneous work necessitated by other con- 

struction, etc. . . . . . . 3.0 

In addition to the work demanded hy the natural growth 
of and improvements in the city there is an increasing neces- 
sity for relaying small mains in order to ensure ample fire 
protection; for several years past much has been done in this 
direction, but an equal or increased amount of relaying is 
required in the future. 

It will be necessary to lay at least tAventy-five miles of 
pipe yearly under present conditions. 

The following is a brief statement of the most important 
work done during the year, for all of which plans were fur- 
nished, lines and grades given when required, and the actual 
construction inspected. 

The 24-inch high service main in West Roxbury was ex-

tended in South street to Centre street and thence through 
Centre street to Spring street, reducing at Beach street to 
twenty inches ; connections were made at Beach, La Grange, 
and Spring streets. The completion of this main to Spring 
street has improved very greatly the service in the south- 
westerly portion of West Roxbmy. 

A 20-inch low service main was laid in Washington street 
from Boylston to Kneeland street under difficulties of loca- 
tion shown by accompanjdng plan ; connection was made at 
Kneeland street with the existing 16-inch pipe in Washington 
street, and from this point a 16-inch main was laid in Kneeland 
street to Atlantic avenue, replacing the oJd 6-inch pipe ; in 
Atlantic avenue the old 12-inch main was relaid with 16-inch 
as far as Oliver street. Tliis work was made necessary by the 
new conditions brought about by the construction of the South 
Terminal Station. 

The 12-inch low service main in Western avenue, Brighton, 
was relaid with 16-inch from Barry's corner to Everett street, 
and it is intended to carry the larger main as far as Market 
street, to improve the fue protection for the large industries 
in this neighborhood. 

A 16-inch pipe was laid in Columbia road, between I and 
O streets, under contract by O'Rourke & Nelson. 

A 16-inch main was laid in Q street. South Boston, from 
East Third to East Sixth street. A 16-inch main was laid 
in Talbot avenue from Nightingale street to Washington 
street. A 16-inch main was laid in Bowdoin street from 
Beacon street to Somerset street. Two 12-inch mains were 
laid in Commonwealth avenue, on the westerly side from 
Warren street to Chestnut Hill avenue, and on the easterly 
side from Warren street to Wallingford road. 

In a number of localities 10-inch and 12-inch pipe were laid 
replacing mains of a smaller size, notable on Beacon Hill and 
in the neighborhood of Faneuil Hall square in the City 
Proper, in Charlestown, East Boston, and South Boston, in 
the northern part of Boxbury, in Jamaica Plain, and in the 
neighborhood of Neponset, Dorchester. This work was all 
caused, entirely, by the need of more water for fire protection, 
the supply being ample for domestic service in each case. 

A large amount of relaying and changing pipe was caused 
by the extension through the city, easterly from Columbus 
avenue, of the Boston & Providence Railway ; by the work 
of the Massachusetts Pipe Line Company ; by the operations 
of the Boston Elevated Railway and Transit Commission,' 
and by the abolishment of grade crossings at Summer-street 
extension and Dorchester avenue.

During the year a large section, containing 6,000 people, 
in Charlestown, was changed from high to low service, and in 
the neighborhood of Milton Lower Mills a section containing 
3,000 people was added to the high service. 

Three additional connections were made with the large 
mains of the Metropolitan Water Board, viz. : a 16-inch on 
Morton street, near Blue Hill avenue ; a 16-inch on River 
street at Morton street; and a 16-inch on North Harvard 
street at Spurr street. The connections previously made 
with the Metropolitan Water Board mains are as follows : 

A 36-incli on Beacon street, near Harvard street. Brook- 
line. 

A 30-inch on Pearl street at Walnut street, Somerville. 

A 24-inch on Broadway at Walnut street, Somerville. 

A 20-inch and a 21:-inch on Broadway at Williams street, 
Chelsea. 

A 20-inch on South street at Morton street. 

A 12-inch on Orient avenue near Farrington street. East 
Boston. 

The policy of abolishing the old Boston hydrants has 
been continued during the year, 138 being abandoned. 

Two new recording gauges have been established in Dor- 
chester and two have been abandoned ; two have been estab- 
lished in Brighton, and one in West Roxbury. 

The results of the work done by the men operating the 
Deacon meters have been computed, and monthly statements 
of the waste found have been made.

THE CORROSION OF PIPES BY ELECTROLYSIS. 

During the past year there has been no marked improve- 
ment in electrical conditions in the pipe system, while 
nothing has been observed to indicate a greater cause for 
uneasiness than in the past. The fact that conditions are 
ever changing, owing to the construction of new lines of 
electric railway, the laying of new pipe lines, etc., demands 
intelligent and constant investigation that new dangers may 
be detected and guarded against before serious damage 
occurs ; this field of work is largely without precedent, and 
an element of uncertainty in regard to actual conditions 
must obtain. While it is true that the return systems of 
electric railways have been improved in the past few years, 
it is equally true that the use of electricity for motive power 
is rapidly increasing, and that the water pipe proves, too 
often, to be the line of least resistance to the power station. 

The following extracts from the report of Messrs. Stone 
& Webster describes the work done by them during the year, 
and the existing conditions as determined by them : 

" In accordance with your request, we have, in the year- 
1899, as in preceding years, made an electrical survey in all 
parts of the City of Boston where the electric car tracks are 
located, to determine, if possible, the extent or likelihood of 
injury to the water mains and services by corrosion due to 
the electric current escaping from the return sytems of the 
street railways. 

" In our last year's report we showed by diagram how, in a 
general way, the conditions compared with those of the pre- 
vious year, and for this report we have paid still more atten- 
tion to getting data for comparison. We took pains to obtain 
readings at the same places as in 1898 ; and furthermore we 
took the readings twice between piping system and tracks, 
once in the spring and a second time in the autumn. 

" Appendix A, to this report, gives in tabulated form the 
three sets of readings, i.e., 1898, spring of 1899 and autumn 
of 1899, respectively. The maximum values are given 
wherever the readings fluctuated, and for convenience the 
figures are recorded to only the nearest half volt." 



Water Depaetmen^t. Ill 

"Volt-Meter Readings Between Piping System 
AND Tracks. 

" These readings are taken to ascertain the general tendency 
of the flow of electric current, which, under existing condi- 
tions, is bound to escape in larger or smaller quantities from 
the car tracks and on to the water pipes, as it seeks the path 
of least resistance in completing its circuit back to the power 
station. Where the piping system, which for convenience 
we shall also speak of as 'hydrant,' is of higher potential 
than the track, as shown by what we call a plus (-|-) or pos- 
itive reading, the presumption is that here the current is 
flowing off the piping system through the gromid back to the 
rails. On the contrary, where it is of lower potential, as 
shown by a negative reading, the flow is presumably in the 
reverse direction. Single readings, however, are hardly 
reliable in an investigation of this kind, and often, after 
many readings in a given locality, we have but general indi- 
cations of how the current is flowing. 

" Corrosion by electrolysis takes place only where the 
current leaves the metal, whether to flow through the earth 
back to the rails, or on to some other pipe, or simply around 
a joint of poor electrical conductivity. Since, however, the 
current which flows off must necessarily first have flowed on, 
indications of a large current flowing on to the piping system 
are to be considered as indirect danger signs. Furthermore, 
since a perfect return systejn would carry the entire current 
back to the power station, without any of it flowing along 
the water pipes, these symptoms of escaping current afford a 
rough index as to the quality of the street railway returns. 

'■'■Appendix A is inserted for a study of the conditions in 
detail; Appendix B, a table of averages, and Appendix C, 
a diagram giving a general view, contain most of the data 
essential for understanding the conclusions which we have 
drawn from this part of the examination. 

"In our report for 1898 we gave the averaged hydrant 
readings of the familiarly recognized districts of the city, as 
East Boston, Charlestown, City Proper, and the like ; giving 
these districts the somewhat arbitrary boundaries which we 
thought would best seive the purpose. In this report, how- 
ever, we have adopted what we consider a more logical 
classification, though it may appear at first sight less simple. 
We have grouped the readings according to general size, 
holding to the usual geographical boundaries oaly where 
they happen to be convenient. 

" These hydrant readings and their averages, thus recorded 



112 City Document No. 41. 

can, we think, be easily misunderstood, and therefore as our 
interpretation we offer the following : 

" One volt positive, or one volt negative, between hydrant 
and rail, is approximately the average of all the readings for 
the years 1898 and 1899. Taking this as a standard we 
assume, for the present, that the piping system in all the dis- 
tricts in which the averages do not exceed this amount is free 
from any widespread, serious electrolytic corrosion. On 
this basis the following districts, except possibly in very 
small sections, are not in danger of immediate trouble to 
water pipes: I. East Boston; III. City proper; IV. South 
Boston; VI. most of South End; VIII. most of Brighton; 
XI. a large section of Dorchester ; and also District B, 
along North Beacon street, Brighton (location of the New- 
ton and Boston Street Railway). 

" It will be noticed by referring to tables in Appendix A^ 
and B, that the highest single reading in any of the above- 
mentioned districts was • — 3. volts ; this was in South Boston, 
at one hydrant in the spring, and at another near by in the 
autumn. But since these two cases are so isolated, and 
since they indicate a flow on to and not off from the pipes, 
we need call attention to them only for future comparison. 
Other local high readings also occur in these districts ; as, 
for instance, on Bowdoin street, Dorchester (District XI.), 
near Geneva avenue and near Olney street. These were 
-|-2.5 and -|-2, respectively, and were taken this last autumn. 
Being positive readings thej^ point to a possible danger dis- 
trict ; ■ but since the other positive readings of that vicinity 
are so much smaller we consider the value of these particu- 
lar ones to be principally for reference in future examinations. 

" Of the districts that showed a higher average than the 
standard, II., including most of Charlestown, averaged for its 
negative readings — 2.5 volts, with a maximum (in 1898) of 
— 8 ; but evidently the extension of the tracks over the top 
of Bunker Hill, to connect again at the bottom with those on 
Main street at Sullivan square, has bettered the return 
system, as shown by the readings in 1899. The reading of 
— 4 last spring on Chelsea street is unusually high, but too 
local to be considered of much significance just now. Dis- 
trict XV., on Alford street, Charlestown, and across the 
Maiden bridge, with an average of positive readings of over 
-|-2, and a maximum (in the spring) of -f-4 would, we think, 
in all probability suffer much from electrolysis to-day, were 
it lined \V^th houses. So long, however, as we know of no 
trouble that has developed here, and while there are so few 
service-pipes on Alford street, we should hardly call this a 
serious danger district. 



Water Depaetment. 113 

" District V., along Harrison avenue, between Dover and 
Northampton streets, has an average of positive readings de- 
cidedly higher than the standard, being -|-1.9 for the spring 
and -|-1.7 for the autumn, with maxima of -|-3 and -|-2.5, re- 
spectively. The negative readings were too low to consider. 
This is a danger district which we shall refer to again when 
we speak of excavations. 

" District VIL, Back Bay, has no positive readings, but its 
negative readings averaged about — 1.5 volts, with a maxi- 
mum of — 3.5, in both spring and autumn. Since, however, 
the maximum readings are so isolated, and since the average 
is so slightly above the 1 volt, we do not consider its condi- 
tion as serious. 

" District IX., along Chestnut Hill Reservoir, is without 
positive readings, but shows indications from the large nega- 
tive readings that much current tends to flow on to the 
pipes, the average being over — 3 volts in the spring and 
over — 4 volts in the autumn, with a maximum of — 5. 
Whether this is due to inferior rail-bonding, and whether 
there actually is a large flow of current, as indicated, we 
cannot be sure without making careful and somewhat com- 
plicated tests, which we think would be worth the while 
another season. 

" A source of trouble which we have not considered a serious 
menace to the pipes in Boston, but which has been thought 
serious in other cities, as proved by actual cases of electro- 
lysis, is the flow of current along the water mains themselves. 
So long as the joints in the pipes are such good electrical 
conductors that there is little or no tendency for the current 
to flow around them, and hence to cause corrosion when it 
leaves the pipe, we know of no harm done by the current 
simply flowing along the mains. Experience in Boston 
seems to show that serious trouble from this flowing around 
joints has rarely occurred here. One probable case, in the 
South End district, we shall consider under the head of 
' Excavations.' 

" District X., Roxbury and part of West Roxbury, 
although showing a somewhat high negative average for 
1898, shows by later measurements an improved condition. 
The local high readings on Centre street are not so high as 
in 1898, and we understand that the Boston Elevated Rail- 
way has taken much pains to remedy the peculiarly high 
reading on Washington street, near IMorton, where the Nor- 
folk & Suburban Street Railway also has a terminus. 

" District XII., Field's Comer and Neponset, has no nega- 
tive readings, but a high average of positive ones. It is a 



114 City Document No. 41. 

danger district whei'e serious trouble has been found which 
we shall consider under the head of ' Excavations.' 

" District XIV., Blue Hill avenue, between Grove Hall 
and Walk Hill street, has no positive readings worth con- 
sidering, but a high negative average, and, like the Reservoir 
District, will warrant particular study to see ho^v much 
current is actually flowing. 

" District XV., Charlestown, we considered with District XL 

"As a whole, the hydrant readings along the Boston 
Elevated Railway system had nearly the same average as the 
standard of 1 volt, positive or negative ; and, as compared 
with most of the other street railways which enter the city, 
the Elevated shows a more efficient return system. 

" The districts other than those of the Boston Elevated do 
not, for the most part, show particularly high averages ; 
but this characteristic was noticed, that the size of the read- 
ing depends largely upon whether a car is near. In general, 
the smaller the system, i.e., the fewer the cars, the more 
sensitive to the nearness of the cars is the voltage between 
hydrant and rail, and consequently the flow of current. 
Thus, the maximum of 10 volts last spring on Washington 
street, in the district of the West Roxbury & Roslindale 
Street Railway, maintained only for a moment, shooting up, 
as it were, as the car approached from Forest Hills Station. 
This fact should be remembered in judging of the danger 
threatened by smaller roads, for the damage to be done by a 
large flow of current depends upon how long a time it flows. 

" District A, of the Lynn & Boston Railroad, we visited 
for the first time this autumn. It is but a short strip on 
Breed's Island, and the readings were low, except for the 
few moments that the car was near. It may be that in the 
summer season, during Sunday traffic, the current flows on 
to and off the pipes in large quantities, so that we would 
reserve our decision as to how much trouble may be appre- 
hended from this source until we have taken measurements 
under more representative conditions. 

" District B, along North Beacon street, Brighton, part of 
the Newton & Boston Street Railway, shows almost no signs 
threatening serious trouble. Here is a recently laid track, 
in operation only about two years, and if that company 
maintains it in as good condition as we have found, we should 
be surprised to learn of any trouble to water-pipes resulting 
in the near future. 

"District C, in Squantum and the neighboring section of 
Quincy, part of the Quincy & Boston Street Railway, showed 
the high negative average of — 3, with a maximum of — 6 



Water Department. 115 

last autumn. Just like District A, of the Lynn & Boston, 
this district should be visited at a time when there is heavier 
traffic than we have found. 

" District D, along River street, Dorchester, part of the 
Norfolk Suburban Street Railway, shows a high positive 
average in the autuixfti, and a high negative average in the 
spring. The readings in this district have evidently been 
much influenced by the opening of the Boston, Milton & 
Brockton Street Railway, which has a terminus on Eliot 
street, Milton, and which is fed from the same power station 
as the Norfolk Suburban in Hyde Park. We have not 
traced any metallic connection between the tracks of the two 
railways, but we think it possible that the pipes of the Met- 
ropolitan Water Works, affected by both of these street rail- 
ways, have made a connecting link for the current so as to 
materially change the quantit}^ and direction of its flow. A 
branch of the West Roxbury & Roslindale Street Railway 
connecting with the Norfolk Suburban at Mattapan, and fed 
from the same power station, also has probably affected the 
conditions. We shall consider this district again under the 
head of ' Excavations.' 

" District E, along Hyde Park avenue, also a part of the 
Norfolk Suburban Street Railway, showed particularly high 
positive readings in the spring, but a much improved condi- 
tion in the autumn, when, however, the negative readings 
were somewhat high. As a whole, the road shows a return 
system inferior to that of the Boston Elevated; but of 
course the lighter traffic gives a different color to an inter- 
pretation of the^size of the readings. 

" District F, including most of the West Roxbury & Ros- 
lindale Street Railway, shows a lower average, particularly of 
positive readings, than might be expected of so small a road. 
It gave some high local negative readings, as on Washington 
street, between Forest Hills Station and South street, where 
there was a maximum of — 10 volts last spring. The new line 
to Mattapan, over Ashland street, gave somewhat high posi- 
tive readings. Scarcity of service-pipes here, however, as in 
fact along the locations of this entire railway, should be con- 
sidered in deciding the question of present damage to water- 
pipes. 

"District G, a short length of the Needham & Boston 
Street Railway, has been opened recently, and one of the two 
readings which we took, being — 6, is sufficiently high to 
warrant further consideration in the near future, in order to 
learn approximately how much current leaks on to the mains 
and service-pipes." 



116 City Document No. 41. 

" Excavations. 

" For an inspection of the mains and services in certain 
localities where we suspected they might have been injured 
by electrolytic corrosion we requested that excavations be 
made, and short lengths of pipe exposed for examination. 

" On Dover street, between Washington street and Shaw- 
mut avenue, there was a break in the main early last April, 
and our attention was called to it. Examination showed 
that in all probability the trouble was the result of electroly- 
tic corrosion. The voltmeter readings which we took were 
at first misleading, because they differed widely according to 
which of the points of contact wires were attached. The 
pipe had been cut and the electric current, therefore, broken, 
so that the readings were not characteristic of the normal 
electrical condition of the pipe. A few days later, after the 
pipe had been mended, we again took voltmeter readings, 
not at the same spot, but at the excavations near by. and 
these showed a difference of potential of from +1 to +1.5 
between pipe and rail, and from +.2 to +.4 between pipe 
and ground. This was on the liigh pressure main. The low 
pressure service-pipe showed a somewhat lower potential ; 
but other readings at hydrants and high pressure gates in 
this section lead us to conclude that in general the relation 
between each of the two systems and the tracks is about the 
same. 

" It is possible that the Dover-street main burst on account 
of recent action. We think likely, however, that most of its 
weakening took place several years ago, under conditions 
which have since been improved upon. 

" Excavations at seven places on Harrison avenue, all 
between Dover and East Canton streets, revealed little or no 
corrosion, except in one place, the service to No. 491, some- 
what north of the Central Power Station. The note we 
made of this excavation was as follows : Five feet down, 
damp clay, almost wet ; +2.5 to track ; +.3 to ground. 
Bad corrosion in places, tending to peel off, but not deep. 

" How recently this corrosion was formed we cannot say ; 
but considering the number of years the electric road has 
been installed and this power station in operation we were 
surprised that in these seven excavations worse symptoms of 
serious injury to water-pipes should not have appeared. Al- 
though slight corrosion is doubtless going on along the Har- 
rison avenue service-pipes in this district we do not expect 
any general trouble to arise in the immediate future. We 
strongly recommend, however, that the authorities in charge 



Water Depaetmext. . 117 

of the water-pipes in this, and in every other part of the city, 
take pains to keep, as far as practicable, specimens of all 
broken mains and services showing the character of the 
break and the condition of the pipe a foot or so at either side 
of it. All such evidence is useful in determining to what 
extent the trouble may have been due to current from the 
electric road. 

" The voltmeter readings along River street, Mattapan, a 
location of the Norfolk Suburban Street Railway, and the 
fact that in many places between Blue Hill avenue and the 
Hyde Park boundary the gromid is apt to be muddy for a 
considerable length of time after wet weather, led us to sus- 
pect that there might be trouble from electrolysis in this dis- 
trict. In two out of four excavations tlie corrosion was 
quite marked; in the third noticeable, but in the fourth 
almost imperceptible. The serious trouble threatened in the 
first two instances may be due to past conditions, but we 
think more likely it is owing to recent ones, because last 
autumn's readings in this locality were larger than heretofore, 
a fact that maj^ be partially accounted for by the opening of 
the Boston, Milton & Brockton Street Railway, which uses 
the Hyde Park power station for feeding its lines in JNlilton. 
We know of no actual bursting of water-pipes from electro- 
lysis in this district, but we think the same pipes should be 
examined next season to see if their condition has changed 
for the worse. 

" A locality in which serious trouble has occurred, and 
where there promises to be more, is at Fields Corner, Dor- 
chester, particularly along the short section of Park street, 
between Dorchester avenue and Adams street. Learning 
that here there had been several cases of service-pipes badly 
corroded so that they had to be removed and replaced by new 
ones, we requested that the pipes be exposed in several places 
on Park street and on the south side of the street where, in 
order to connect the houses with the water-main they run 
beneath the tracks and beneath the buried return feeders of 
the Boston Elevated Railway. Two representatives of that 
company examined the pipes with us. We give the data 
from our note-book as follows : November 25, 1899, 11 A.M., 
Park street, Dorchester. Service to No. 119. Pipe five feet 
down in somcAvhat damp gravel. Reading from pipe to 
ground (different places) +1 to +1.5 volts. Verj^ marked 
corrosion, about Jg inch deep, along the 2^ feet of pipe that 
was exposed. A dark purple scale. 

"Service to No. 101. Pipe 5 feet down, in damp clay. 
Reading from pipe to ground +1 volt (in various places). 



118 City Document No. 41. 

Reading from pipe to rail +2. General corrosion, about 
•JL inch deep, along most of the 10 feet of pipe that was 
exposed. Whitish in color. Pipe was laid about one month 
ago. 

" Service to No. 129. Pipe 5 to 6 feet down, in damp 
gravel. Reading from pipe to ground +^ volt. Reading 
from pipe to rail +^ to +1 volt. Very much corrosion, 
nearly ^ inch deep ; caking off in pieces, say 3 inches long by 
1 inch wide. Five feet of pipe exposed. Pipe should be 
taken out. 

"Service to No. 121. Pipe 4 feet down in not very 
damp, clayey graveL Reading from pipe to ground 4-| 
volt. Reading fro-m pipe to track +-| volt. Very much 
corrosion, almost as much as on service to No. 129.. Pipe 
white on tojj, purple underneath. Probably corrosion was 
about I inch deep, but most of it had been taken off by 
workmen. 

" There seems to be no question but that the return 
electric current is doing much damage in this section at 
least, and we are told of a pipe that gave out near by on 
Dorchester avenue. The Boston Elevated Railway should, 
of course, be requested to take radical measures for stopping 
further damage. It seems to us that the underground 
feeder return system in all probability is largely the cause of 
trouble, as the current in the service-pipes which run beneath 
it finds an easy path through the damp soil and damp 
woodwork encasing the cement in which the bare returns 
are laid. 

" We did not have excavations made for an examination 
of the iron water mains, but we strongly recommend that 
such an examination be made at an early date, for if the 
mains themselves are badly injured the sooner it is known 
the better. 

" This is hardly the place to discuss what means of 
remedy should be adopted. Obviously, however, were the 
returns run in a terra-cotta conduit like the outgoing 
feeders the current from off the water pipes could not 
possibly flow on to them directly. This would doubtless 
relieve the situation to some extent, but since the electric 
car tracks run through that section of Park street where we 
have found the service pipes so much injured it might be 
necessary to take still further measures to effect a complete 
remedy,"

"Voltmeter Readings along Sections of Track. 

" For the purpose of ascertaining in a general way the 
quality of. rail-bonding, we took voltmeter readings along 
sections of track varying in length from 1,000 feet over 2,500 
feet. We did this also in our investigation for the previous 
year, and we give the results, tabulated, in Appendix D, and 
in diagram form in Appendix JE, reducing them to readings 
per 100 feet to allow of comparison. We have recorded the 
maximum readings when there was a fluctuation, and, for 
convenience, we have recorded only the approximate values. 
It will be noted that .3 volts per 100 feet is the highest 
maximum recorded and .008 per 100 feet the lowest. .3 
volt per 100 feet is at the rate of over 15 volts to the mile, 
which is, of course, high, the averages for all the readings 
being .085 in 1899, and .035 in 1898 (when much fewer 
readings were taken). 

" We have as yet done hardly more with this data than to 
use it for reference and comparison. In an examination for 
another city in 1893, where in one case we found a fall of 
potential of 7 volts per 100 feet, there was clearly evidence 
of neglected rail-bonding. In our report of that examination 
we took the somewhat arbitrary standard of .1 volt per 100 
feet, and said that in places where the readings showed a 
difference of potential to be higher than this ' the bonding 
is defective somewhere within the given interval.' " 

"Voltmeter Readings across Boundaries. 

"We give in Appendix F the readings • between Boston 
water-pipes and those of adjoining places for 1899 and 1898, 
recorded to approximate values. At the Hyde Park boun- 
daries only are the readings particularl}" high, showing that 
the current has a tendency to flow off in large quantities 
from the Boston pipes. A further study along the Norfolk 
Suburban Street Railway on River street and Hyde Park 
avenue should be made, as on account of new railways in- 
stalled on the same system the conditions are likely to change 
for the worse. Meantime, that company should be notified 
of the danger that threatens, and is already apparent from an 
insufficient return system. 

" In Appendix G- are voltmeter readings between hydrants 
and rails in Boston and in other cities and towns on either 
side of boundaries, which should be considered in connection 
with the above, as they are a check upon them. In the case 
of the Dorchester and Hyde Park boundaries, for instance, 
they confirm the indications of a large flow of current off the 
Boston pipes and through the earth on to the Hyde Park pipes. 



120 Cjty Document No. 41. 

"Readings on Metropolitan Water Works System. 

" We give in Ajjpendix H (a) the tabulated voltmeter 
readings between the Metropolitan Water Works piping 
system and the Boston piping system, and also between the 
former and the Milton piping system ; (5) the readings be- 
tween the Metropolitan Water Works system and the street 
railway tracks. 

" These readings were made on October 25, 1899, in 
co-operation with the Metropolitan Water Board. They show 
that the Metropolitan pipes carry a large quantity of current 
in certain localities. By a further study the pipes of that 
system may be found to assist in carrying the current from 
the Milton system, and thus to account for the large flow of 
current off the Boston pipes in the Mattapan district. 

" We know of no specific injury, however, which has been 
done to the Metropolitan water-pipes by the electric current 
in the neighborhood of Boston ; but there might be such 
serious difficulties, should corrosion thus occur, that we 
strongly recommend the continued co-operation in watching 
for possible trouble that may arise. 

"Summary and Conclusion. 

"In general, we think the City of Boston is comparatively 
free from injury to water-pipes due to electrolytic corrosion, 
considering heavy electric traffic on the street railway system. 
The serious trouble in Dorchester seems to be due not to 
negligence, but to conditions arising in spite of an effort to 
avoid them, and which cannot be fully accounted for as yet. 
The injury to the service-pipes in Mattapan seems to be 
largely due to conditions that have arisen within a year. 
The Norfolk Suburban Street Railway Company should be 
notified that its return system threatens serious trouble." 

Respectfully submitted, 

William Jackson, 

City Engineer.
