FOR THE YEAR ENDING JANUARY 31, 1901. 



Office of the Water Commissioner, 

City Hall, Boston, February 1, 1901. 

Hon. Thomas N. Hart, 

Mayor of Boston : 

Dear Sir, —7 1 submit herewith the sixth annual report 
of the Water Commissioner for the year ending January 31, 
1901. 

The total receipts from all sources during the year were 
$2,560,027.03 ; less refunded water rates, §920 ; making the 
net receipts 12,559,107.03. The total current expenditures 
from revenue, including interest on funded debt, sinking- 
fund requirements, and the Metropolitan water assessment^ 
were ^$2, 126, 824. 09; leaving a balance which was transferred 
to the general revenue of the City of 1133,202.94. 

The total amount expended for extension of mains, etc., 
during the year was $411,075.91 ; of which amount the sum 
of 824,087.67 was paid from tlie balance of loan brought 
over from the previous year, and the remainder, 1386,988.24, 
was paid from revenue. 

The construction account, as shown on the books Feb- 
ruary 1, 1901, was 123,054,387.81, having been increased 
during the year to the amount of 8364,604. 06. There is- 
still due from the State, under the terms of the settlement of 



2 City Document No. 41.^ 

the claim for the taking of the water supply system by the 
Metropolitan Water Board, the sum of 17,531,000, which, if 
paid, would reduce the construction account to 115,523,387.81. 

The net debt on February 1, 1901, was $1,815,626.90, 
being a decrease of $5,620,423.18, a large amount of the 
debt having been cancelled with payments made by the State 
on account of the taking by the Metropolitan Water Board. 

The outstanding water loans February 1, 1900, were 
$17,306,273.98, and/oi^ FebrAary 1, 19Q1,; |1;];,9:6.0^273.98, 
being a de cr eas e f oi^ tm y e^' ht fe , 3146 , G Q Q ., I % I % \ ^^ ' r 

The Metropolitan water , assess j^nent for the year was 
1^578,696.96, as against $411^861.54 for the previous year. 

At present there is no charge for water made to the City 
Departments, which/depriYes< tfiil^ Department bf^ an income^ 
of previous years amounting to about $200,000 'per 'annum. 

The full financial statement will be found on pages 5 to 13. 

Less main pipe was laid in 1900 than for several years 
previous. This is on account of the fact that fewer men 
liave been employed, that the working day has been short- 
ened to eight hours, and that about one-half of the whole 
work was done in the crowded streets of the City proper. 
There was also a decrease in the number of petitions for 
main pipe received, there being only 91 during the year end- 
ing January 31, 1901, as against 127 received during the 
previous year. 

The relaying and replacing of the small mains by larger 
ones has decidedly improved the fire protection in different 
sections of the City. 

The Bachelder Independent Valve Hydrant is now the 
standard of the Department, and is the only one manufac- 
tured. 

The breaks in the 30-inch main in Tremont street, at the 
Hotel Touraine and opposite Hollis street, and also in the 
48-inch main in Brookline, are described in some detail in 
the City Engineer's report. 

The laying of Shirley Gut pipe is described in detail, with 
photographs, in the City Engineer's report. 

The Smith Tapping Machine has been adopted for taking 
2-inch, 3-inch, 4-inch and 6-inch branches from pipes of any 
size without shutting off water, and has proved to be of 
great value. 

A list of contracts made and pending will be found on 
pages 14 to 19. 

The custom of laying service pipes in new streets, con- 
structed under the Act of 1891, Chapter 323, is proving year 
after year more expensive to the City, and, so far as the De- 



, Water Department. 3 

partment can see, the work is of very little value, as it is- 
impossible to determine the exact location required for future 
service, or the necessary size of the pipe. This matter has 
been referred to in previous reports, and I refer to it now in 
order to keep the matter before the authorities, hoping that 
the act may be modified or repealed. (See report for year 
ending January 31, 1898, page 2.) 

Under authority given me by Your Honor, the ice plant 
belonging to the City was sold, and later a special appropria- 
tion of 83,000 was made by the City Council for the fur- 
nishing of ice for the ice-water fountams during the past 
season. 

During the past year the Department has experimented 
with a device for cooling water in drinking fountains with- 
out the use of ice. The experiment is as follows : 

A perforated wrought-iron pipe is sunk into the ground to 
the depth of about 100 feet. The perforations in the pipe 
allow the water in the soil to circulate freely. Four lines of 
small cast-iron pipe, one inch in diameter, are passed inside 
of the 8-inch pipe, and this pipe is connected with the City 
mains and with a fountain, so that the water from the mains 
passes four times through the 8-inch pipe, and is cooled to 
nearly the natural temperature of the soil, which does not 
vary very much during the year at the depth of 100 feet. 
By this means the temperature of the City water is reduced 
about 20 degrees, or brought down to about 52 degrees. 

The first fountain of this kind was established on Boston 
Common near the Frog pond, another on the M-street play- 
ground in South Boston, another in Sheridan square at the 
junction of Albany and Northampton streets, and another for 
horses in Ppst Office square. 

Thus far this cooling device has given very good satisfac- 
tion, but it will be given a more thorough test before addi- 
tional fountains are located, as the experiment has not yet 
been carried through an entire season. 

Terms of settlement in the claim of the City of Boston 
against the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, on account of 
the taking by the Metropolitan Water Board of said City's 
water supply system, having been agreed upon by His Excel- 
lency the Governor on the part of the Commonwealth and 
His Honor the Mayor on the part of the City, the settlement 
was consummated on October 19, 1900, with the approval of 
the Committee on Claims and of the Mayor, as per authority 
granted under an order of the City Council approved Febru- 
ary 8, 1896. The vote of the Committee on Claims approv- 
ing the settlement was as follows : 



4 City Document No. 41. 

In Committee on Claims, October 19, 1900. 

Voted^ That the settlement made by the Water Commissioner 
and the Mayor of the claims of the City against the Common- 
wealth, or the Metropolitan Water Board, for damages incurred 
or compensation for property taken or acquired by said Common- 
wealth or Board under the act establishing said Metropolitan 
Water Board, for the sum of twelve million five hundred and 
thirty-one thousand (12,531,000) dollars be, and hereby is, 
approved, and as a part of said settlement that the City Solicitor 
be instructed and authorized to settle the suit of the City of Bos- 
ton against the Commonwealth of Massachusetts for the taking 
of its water supply system for the sum of seven million five 
hundred and thirty-one thousand (7,531,000) dollars with interest 
on said sum after November 1, at the rate of three and one-half 
(3J) per cent, per annum, and to execute the necessary papers to 
put such settlement into effect, said sum of seven million five 
hundred and thirty-one thousand (7,531,000) dollars being bal- 
ance due on the above settlement from the Commonwealth after 
deducting the sum of five million (5,000,000) dollars which has 
been paid by the Metropolitan Water Board on account of said 
claims. 

This settlement does not include a large amount of prop- 
erty still left in the hands of the City, which the Metropolitan 
Board should control, such as the Brookline reservoir, 
Fisher Hill reservoir. West Roxbury Pumping-station ; the 
mains leading from Chestnut Hill reservoir, Fisher Hill 
reservoir, and Brookline reservoir through Brookline to the 
City ; and the main supply-pipes in Somerville. Most of 
this property will eventually be used in common, and should 
be under one control, especially Fisher Hill reservoir, which, 
although entirely used for the supply of Boston, should be 
operated from the pumping-station at Chestnut Hill. At 
present there is a very uncertain state of things, as there is a 
divided responsibility, and in case of accident it is almost 
impossible to decide whether the State or the City is re- 
sponsible. These are questions which will have to be con- 
sidered and settled definitely in some way, or it may cause a 
serious and complicated condition of affairs. 

Reports in detail of 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.

The abatements allowed on account of 1900 assessments, amounting to $23,fi87.85 
were due to changes in occupancy of premises, changes in ownership, vacancies, 
errors in valuations and assessments, inaccuracy of 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 1894, 1895, 1896, 1897, 1898, and 1899 were due to bills 
uncollectible, changes of ownership, failures, shut-oif for non-payment, cleaning up 
old accounts, and abatement of City Department accounts to the amount of $411,897.62, 
iTuder order of the City Council approved by the Mayor on March 5, 1900.

APPENDIX B. 



REPORT OF THE DISTRIBUTION DIVISION. 



Office of the Superintendent, 

710 Albany Street, February 1, 1901. 

Geneeal a. p. Martin, 

Water Commissioner : 

I herewith submit the annual report of the Distribution 
Division for the year ending January 31, 1901. 

Main Pipe. 

Twenty and four-tenths miles of main pipe was laid during 
the year. Eleven and one-tenth miles was abandoned, and 
10,483 feet in Chelsea was taken by the Metropolitan Water 
Board — making the total length of the Distribution System 
713.4 miles. 

In addition to the above (and not included in the total 
length of our system) 3,001 feet of hydrant, reservoir and 
blow-off pipe was laid, and 1,811 feet abandoned. 

There was also laid 691 feet of private main. 

Three thousand one hundred and seventy-one feet of main 
pipe was relocated, by raising, lowering, or moving laterally. 
This work was necessitated chiefly by the abolishment of 
grade crossings and street improvements. 

About one-half the amount of pipe laid replaced old and 
small-sized mains laid some years ago and which have since 
become inadequate to the greater demands imposed upon 
them by the growth of the City. 

The present winter is the first one in the history of the 
Department when work was carried on throughout the winter 
in the same manner as during the summer ; that is, hereto- 
fore, since 1896, during the winter months the main pipe 
force was employed upon one or two large jobs in the out- 
lying districts where the adverse weather conditions did not 
so seriously interfere with the work as it might have within 
the City limits. During the present winter, however, we 
did considerable relaying in various parts of the City proper 



Water Department. 39 

where the streets are paved with granite blocks, and it has 
proved to be a matter of some expense to maintain the 
trenches in a safe condition on account of the repeated settle- 
ments due to the frost leaving the ground and other condi- 
tions characteristic of spring weather. 

The Metropolitan Water Board took for its own use the 
following main pipe and fixtures, located in Chelsea, Chelsea 
creek and East Boston, between Chelsea bridge on one end 
and the East Boston pumping station on the other : 456 feet 
30-inch main, 4,760 feet 24-inch main, 4,667 feet 20- 
inch main, 595 feet 16-inch main, 5 feet 12-inch main, 35 
feet 12-inch B. O. pipe, 90 feet 6-inch B. O. pipe, 40 feet 
4-inch B. O. pipe, 200 feet 4-inch hydrant pipe, 3 24-inch 
gates, 5 20-inch gates, 1 12-inch gate, 1 12-inch B. O. gate,, 
2 6-inch B. O. gates, 2 4-inch B. O. gates, 7 4-inch hydrant 
gates, 7 Boston hydrants, 2 air cocks. 

Main Gates. 

Four hundred and sixty-five of various sized gates were 
established ; 210 were abandoned, and 16, in Chelsea, were 
taken by the Metropolitan Water Board, making the total 
number in use 8,910. Besides these, there were 21 blow-off 
gates established and 12 abandoned, and 5, in Chelsea, taken 
by the Metropolitan Water Board ; 8 private gates established 
and 1 abandoned ; and 4 gates established upon hydrant 
branches. This last class of gates enables us to make repairs 
upon hydrants without shutting down the lines — an impor- 
tant disideratum. 

An old style left-handed gate at the corner of Boylston 
street and Tremont street was replaced by one of the pattern 
in use at the present time. 

Air Cocks. 
Twenty-seven air cocks were established and 6 abandoned. 

Blow-off Cocks. 
.Six blow-off cocks were established and 1 abandoned. 

Check Valves. 
One 8-inch check valve was established upon the Deer 
Island System. (Private.) 

Hydrants. 

Three hundred and ninety-six hydrants were established, and 
267 abandoned, and 7, in Chelsea, were taken by the Metro- 



40 City Document No. 41. 

politan Water Board — making the total number connected 
with our system 7,606. The Bachelder pattern of Post hy- 
drant was used more extensively this year than previously — 
103 being added to the system : the total number now in 
service is 175. It is our policy to use this type of hydrant 
wherever it is feasible, the Fire Department having shown a 
decided preference for it. 

One thousand four hundred and seventy-iive bags of salt 
were purchased by this Department and delivered to the Fire 
Department to be used on hydrant covers during the cold 
weather. 

One hundred and seventy-nine thousand one hundred and 
three inspections of hydrants were made — principally dur- 
ing the cold weather — to detect if possible defects in the 
working of the hydrants, which if uncorrected might cause 
a delay of disastrous consequence in case of fire. 

We are considerably annoyed at times as a result of the 
rather promiscuous use of hydrants by contractors, corpora- 
tions, and City Departments, whose sole desire is to get 
water, regardless of the means employed. Sometimes, when 
a regular hydrant wrench is not at hand, a Stillson wrench is 
employed, with the effect of wearing off the corners of the 
nut controlling the valve-stem, and thus rendering the hy- 
drant practically useless. Other defects are often caused by 
the ignorance and carelessness of the parties mentioned 
above, who in my opinion should get water from other 
sources. Such an important fixture as a fire hydrant should 
be held almost sacred, and should be used exclusively for the 
purpose of extinguishing fires. Its efficiency depends to a 
great extent upon its readiness for use, and this cannot be 
expected where it is operated by careless and mechanically 
ignorant persons. 

Water Posts. 

Twenty-five water posts were established and 11 abandoned 
— making the total in use 508. As regards these posts we do 
nothing, except upon orders received from the Street Water- 
ing Division, which owns them, and pays for their mainte- 
nance. 

Fountains. 

During the year drinking fountains were established as 
follows : 2 cold water (artesian well method) for man only, 1 
*' ordinary" * for beasts only, 1 cold water (artesian well 

* The term "ordinary" is here used to designate those fountains through which 
water of a normal temperature flows and not cooled by artificial methods. * 



Water Department. 41 

method) for beasts only. There were abandoned 2 "ordi- 
nary " for man and beast, 1 " ordinary " for man only, and 1 
"ordinary" for beasts only. An "ordinary " for man only 
was changed to a " cold water " (artesian well method), and 
an " ordinary " for beasts only was changed to a " cold 
water" (artesian well method). The total number of foun- 
tains in use is 121, of which 47 are " ordinaries " for man 
and beast combined, 21 " ordinaries " for man only, 35 " cold 
water" for man only, 15 "ordinaries" for beasts only, and 
2 " cold water " for beasts only. 

For the purpose of cooling water for drinking fountains 
Sj new system has been inaugurated during the past year. 
Artesian wells have been driven at several points to a depth 
of about 100 feet, viz.: Boston Common, Second street, 
between M street and N street. Post Office square, and the 
junction of Northampton street and Albany street. A 
wrought-iron pipe, of about eight inches diameter, and of the 
-same length as the depth of the well, is lowered into the 
bore and forms a sheathing for the same. This pipe is per- 
forated with small holes which allow a free passage of the 
well-water through the same, and assure a uniformly low 
temperature. The supply pipe to the fountain passes through 
"the whole length of the well twice. The water flowing 
through the pipe is thus cooled by the surrounding well- 
-water, and, as it reaches the faucet in the fountain, it is 
usually of about 50° Fahrenheit, winter and summer. This 
is considered by hygienic authorities as sufficiently cold for 
drinking purposes. The expense and bother of replenishing 
the ice boxes once or twice a day, as was necessary under 
i;he old system, is thus obviated. 

Service-Pipes. 

One thousand seven hundred and ninety-eight service- 
pipes (45,559 feet) of various sizes were laid during the 
year, and 364 service-pipes (9,059 feet) were abandoned — 
showing a net increase of 1,434 pipes (36,500 feet), and 
making the total number of service-pipes of all sizes now in 
use 87,525, with an aggregate length of 2,427,671 feet. 
Four hundred and twenty-six service-pipes were laid to 
unoccupied building lots from which no revenue is at present 
derived. They are included in the foregoing statement. 

I am now considering a system which I hope to have in 
execution the early part of next year, whereby the relative 
location of all service-pipes to some fixed point may be more 
-easily ascertained than at present. It is now often the case 



42 City Document No. 41. 

that we have to dig, and, figuratively speaking, grope our way 
in an endeavor to locate a service-pipe, for want of definite- 
information as to its location. 

The cost of service-pipes laid in streets paved with " pitch 
and pebble" and asphalt is not to a considerable amount 
covered by the schedule rates charged for the pipes. This^ 
question will require serious consideration in the very near 
future. 

Maintenance. 

Repairs of all kind and of varied extent were made upon 
main-pipe, service-pipes, hydrants, etc., during the year^ 

There were 549 main-pipe repairs ; 12,110 service-pipe 
repairs ; 4,268 hydrant repairs ; 4,058 hydrant and gate box 
repairs; 450 fountain repairs; 1,268 street repairs; 701 dead 
ends blown off; 7,165 gates tested m service ; 6,511 hydrants 
tested in service ; 8,549 gate covers salted in cold weather, 
and a great deal of miscellaneous work of maintenance- 
character. 

The most important break that we had occurred August 
8 in the 30-inch low service main in Tremont street, 
opposite the Hotel Touraine. The water escaped in great 
quantities, flooding manj- cellars in the vicinity. It cost 
12,204.52 to repair the pipe, the street and pavement torn 
up by the water, and to pump out the cellars into which the 
water entered. Five thousand one hundred and eighty-two 
dollars and eighty-nine cents was expended in stripping this 
main between Boylston and Eliot streets, after the break was 
repaired, for the purpose of discovering any weakness that 
might exist, and strengtheniEg it where we considered it 
necessary. There are now in the hands of the Law Depart- 
ment awaiting settlement, 34 claims for alleged damages 
resulting from this break. 

Upon September 5 a leak occurred in the same main at a 
point in Tremont street, opposite Hollis street. The cost of 
making repairs was |435.10. Both of these leaks were 
caused by settlement, due, no doubt, to the unsettled con- 
dition of the street since it was disturbed by Subway con- 
struction. 

Between October 20 and December 26 we had a series of 
six breaks in the 48-inch low service main in and near Clin- 
ton road, Brookline. These were caused by a combination 
of increased pressure, poor castings, and settlement. The 
aggregate cost of repairing the same was §4,348.93, with a 
charge from Contractor DriscoU, of Brookline, for repairing 
the roads torn up by the escaping water to be included. 



Water Department. 43 

The 1,268 street repairs, which class of work is rapidly 
becoming both extensive and expensive, on account of the 
greater number of "pitch and pebble" and asphalt streets 
than formerly, varied in expense from $1 to |518. 

A very desirable class of work performed during the year 
was the building of 34 brick gate-chambers, replacing wooden 
boxes. Brick gate-chambers for large gates are obviously an 
improvement over wooden boxes. Thirty-one brick cham- 
bers with wooden tops were fitted with brick tops, thus mak- 
ing the entire chamber of brick. 

We are caused considerable expense by relocating our 
mains in response to the requests of the Sewer Division, the 
construction work of which very frequently comes in contact 
with our system. No reimbursement is made to this Depart- 
ment for this outlay. 

Early in the year an important change was made in the 
method of supplying steam for heatingN our building at 710 
Albany street. The exhaust from the engine was utilized, 
and instead of, as formerly, escaping into the air, it circulates 
through the heating apparatus of the building and returns to 
the boiler and is again used for power purposes. This results 
in a material saving in fuel. 

An inspection of the statement appended, showing the 
manufactures of the machine and carpenter shops, will give 
an idea of what this branch of the service is doing. In addi- 
tion, however, to the manufacture of stock, these shops per- 
form a great amount of work of a most diversified nature, 
necessary to the maintenance of a plant as large as ours. It 
is of very rare occurrence that we have to call upon outside 
mechanics or artisans. 

Care and attention have been given to the various yards, 
buildings, reservoirs, and properties of the Department, and 
they are all in first-class condition. 

An auction sale was held January 29, 1901, by which, in 
addition to large lots of cast-iron and composition junk, a 
great variety of old and useless material — the accumulation 
of years — was disposed of to advantage to the Department. 
Some of the larger items were : 227 tons of cast-iron junk ; 
4 tons composition and brass chips; 4 tons of brass and com- 
position junk ; 2,700 feet of f -inch wrought-iron pipe and fit- 
tings for same ; one Sturtevant Heating System, complete ; 
12 jack screws; 1,000 pounds tire steel; 26 wagon springs; 
1 tip-cart and harness; 4 buggies ; 3 wagons; 11 sleighs; 
and about 150 other lots of varying quantity and quality, for 
which we received, after deducting the expense of the sale, 
15,601.76. 



44 City Document No. 41. 



Fire Reservoies. 

The fire reservoir in Anderson street, opposite the Phillips 
School-house, together with the 4-inch connection between it 
and our system, was abandoned. 

Harbor Service. 

The additional 12-inch supply laid across Moon Island in 
1899 was connected at the sea-wall with the pipe crossing 
the harbor to Long Island. The usual care and attention were 
given to the various lines of pipe in the harbor. Bulkheads 
were built along the shores of the different islands to pro- 
tect the pipes from the effects of the waves. A sign warning 
vessels from anchoring in the vicinity of our pipes was built 
on Rainsford Island ; and old signs of a similar character 
at other points were repainted. 

Appended you will find tables showing details of the work 
performed, and schedule of stock owned by the Department 
January 31, 1901. ^ 

Respectfully yours, 

William J. Welch, 

Superintendent.

APPENDIX C. 



REPORT OF THE ENGINEER. 



Engineebing Department, 

50 City Hall, February 1, 1901. 

Gen. a. p. Martin, 

Water Oommissioner : 

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

During the past year 20.4 miles of main pipe hare been 
laid and 11.1 miles abandoned, making a net increase of 9.3 
miles, and a total length in the system of 713.4 miles. The 
following classification will indicate to some extent the 
character of the work done: 

Miles. 

(1) Extension of large supply mains . . . 1.0 

(2) Extension of mains for new buildings (by 

petition) ....... 5.6 

(3) Relaying old or small mains .... 4.4 

(4) Relaying in advance of street construction . 6.0 

(5) Miscellaneous work largely necessitated by other 

construction . . . . . .3.4 

The most important work done during the year is as 
follows : 

The 30-inch high service main was extended in Washing- 
ton street, Dorchester, from Bowdoin street to Talbot avenue, 
there connecting with a 16-inch line. A 20-inch main was 
laid in B street, South Boston, from Danby to Claflin street, 
thence crossing under twenty-three freight tracks of the 
N. Y., N. H. & H. R.R. and through Binford street to A 
street ; this line materially improves the fire service in a 
district where values are rapidly growing. A 24-inch pipe 
was laid from the 30-inch high service main on the Common 
to the subway, it there divides into three 16-inch pipes, which 
pass over the subway roof in channels provided for the 
purpose, and which are each connected with the 16-inch line 
in Tremont street. 



Water Department. 129 

The new location of the Boston & Providence R.R. made 
it necessary at Castle square to abandon two lines of 30-inch 
pipe for a distance of about 120 feet; four lines of 20-inch 
steel pipes were substituted for them and were carried under 
the floor of the new highway bridge over the railroad tracks 
and connected by 30^^ X 20^' Y branches on each end ; in 
addition to being enclosed in tight boxes formed by special 
bridge construction the steel pipes were" covered by Voorhees 
patent insulation as a further protection from freezing. 

The work of abolishing the grade crossing at Cambridge 
street, Charlestown, carried out by the B. & M. R.R., caused 
a number of changes in the water pipes in that vicinity — 
820 feet of 30-inch wrought-iron cement-lined pipe was 
abandoned in Cambridge and Perkins streets, and a like 
amount of 30-inch cast-iron pipe was laid in the same streets 
to replace it; the old cement-lined pipe, laid in 1869, was 
found to be remarkably clean on the inside ; its wrought-iron 
shell, originally 0.16-inches thick was reduced in spots by 
rusting to a thickness of 0.11 inches, and the cement lining 
and covering showed but slight tensile strength ; 3,150 feet 
of 12-inch pipe was laid in Cambridge street and in other 
streets affected by the change of grade, replacing in each case 
pipe of a small size ; also 680 feet of 6-inch was relaid in 
different streets. 

The following work was done in connection with the 
changes of grade on Dorchester avenue, Boston street and 
Swett street. 

1,266 feet of 16-inch pipe was laid in Dorchester ave., replacing 12-inch.

The 12-inch mains in Atlantic avenue and Commercial 
street, from Oliver to Prince, and the 6-inch main in Clinton 
street, from Commercial to Atlantic avenue, were relaid with 
16-inch pipe, making a great improvement in the fire service 
of the north-eastern section of the City. 

A 16-inch main was laid in Summer street, from Dewey 
square to the foot of Bedford street, replacing a 12-inch pipe. 



130 City Document No. 41. 

The 16-inch main in Western avenue, Brighton, was 
extended from Everett street to Market street, replacing 
a 12-inch main. 

A 16-inch main was laid in Blue Hill avenue, Dorchester, 
from Gaston to Edgewood street, replacing an 8-inch pipe. 

A 16-inch main was laid in Corinth street, West Roxbury, 
from Birch to Washington street, replacing a 6-inch. pipe. 

A 12-inch main was laid on each side of Washington 
street, from Canton street to Northampton street, replac- 
ing a single Ime of 6-inch pipe and reinforcing the supply in 
a district where the fire supply was altogether inadequate. 

A number of other streets in different parts of the City 
were relaid with 12-inch, 10-inch and 8-inch pipe, to improve 
the existing service ; about one-half the total amount of work 
done throughout the year was of this class. 

In relaying practically no leaks have been found in the 
joints of the old pipes, and the fact that no considerable 
amount of water is wasted in this way is a tribute to careful 
and effective work. 

Considerable attention has been given to improving the 
designs of the gates and hydrants ; the old B. W. W. type of 
gate, with body in three pieces, and with heavy lead joints, is 
being given up as fast as new drawings, patterns, etc., can 
be made. The type of gate adopted is equally durable, 
much lighter, and consequently more economical. The 
Bachelder independent valve hydrant is now being manufact- 
ured exclusively, from drawings made in this office ; each 
outlet is controlled by its own valve, making it possible, with- 
out shutting off the water, to connect a second and third 
engine to a hydrant already in use. 

The patterns owned by the Water Department (400 in 
number comprising 2,100 different parts) have been marked 
with composition letters and listed in a '' Pattern Book ; " 
a room has been set apart for their storage with stalls, shelves, 
etc., suitably marked. 

Electrolysis. 

While the water-pipe system of the City has not suffered 
from electrolysis in the past to so great an extent as was 
feared, there is reason to believe that the conditions are grow- 
ing worse, and that something must be done or the pipe sys- 
tem will suffer serious damage. 

The accompanying report of Messrs. Stone and Webster 
shows the special work which has been done during the past 
year to determine the electrical condition of the pipe system 



Water Department. 131 

and in addition to this special work a large number of obser- 
vations were made when pipes were exposed in excavations ; 
these observations cover every section of the City, and show 
that serious damage is being done to services in some places. 



William Jackson, Esq., City Engineer^ 

City Hall, Boston, Mass. : 

Dear Sir, — In our report on the electrolysis of water pipes 
for the year 1899 we considered in detail the voltmeter readings 
in various sections of the City, paying much attention to a com- 
parison with what we had found the preceding year. In our 
investigations for 1900 we have not deemed it essential to take 
so many readings or to make so detailed a comparison, for the 
reason that we find the conditions varying so little from year to 
year. Therefore, in this report we make but a general compari- 
son of the conditions in 1899 and 1900, emphasizing only such 
points as we believe of particular importance, notably the serious 
conditions that still prevail in the Field's Corner District. 

In 1899 we made two electrical surveys of the City, taking 
about 450 voltmeter readings each time; in 1900 we took hardly 
more than 250 such readings, a sufficient number, however, 
to enable us to report with much certainty upon the general con- 
ditions. From the accompanying tables it will be seen that the 
grand averages of the two years are about the same, 1 volt being 
the positive average for 1899, and 1.1 for 1900; 1 and 1.1 the 
negative averages for 1899, and 1.3 for 1900. So also with 
the maximum readings, + 6 being the highest positive reading 
for 1899 and + 6 for 1900 ; — 10 the highest negative reading for 
1899 and — 12 for 1900. Therefore, we consider the conditions 
about the same for the two years, with certainly no general im- 
provement for 1900. In considering the Boston Elevated Rail- 
way system apart from the others, it will be seen that likewise 
the conditions for the two years were about the same. Owing to 
a new fine having been opened on Commonwealth avenue to 
Chestnut Hill Reservoir there is a local increase in the size of the 
readings in Brighton, and we should expect this slight difference 
on account of the unusually heavy grade on that avenue. 

The other roads, taken by themselves, show, on an average, 
conditions somewhat for the worse. 

We use in making up our averages only the maximum read- 
ings ; therefore where we took but a single reading in any district 
this will be the average as well as the maximum. In one instance 
(Lynn & Boston Railroad, on Breed's Island), the fluctuation 
was from — .5 to — 9.5, according to the position of the cars. 
But we used only — 9.5 in making up our averages. We may 
further add that where there is the most uninterrupted traffic, and 
consequently the most continuous flow of current, the readings 
are apt to be the steadiest, the maximum, minimum and average 



132 City Document No. 41. 

tending to become one and the same. Much variation in voltage 
generally indicates an inferior return circuit, but the greatest 
fluctuations are apt to be in districts where the traffic is light, 
hence are not a sure sign that there is any very large flow of 
current on to the pipe system. The above case is where a single 
car caused almost the entire movement of the needle, and, being 
in a negative district, we do not consider it cause for alarm. 
The troubles to pipe caused by the Lynn & Boston Railroad are 
likely to be on some other water system than that belonging to 
the City of Boston. 

The West Roxbury & Roslindale Street Railway has com- 
paratively light traffic, and, although we found — 12 volts on 
Oakland street, the needle only shot up to that figure momenta- 
rily, so we are not prepared to say that serious trouble is immi- 
nent because of this reading. 

High + readings on River street, in the Mattapan district of 
the Norfolk- Suburban Street Railway, still maintain, and there we 
expect that trouble will soon be apparent. 

We come now to a point to which your attention should be 
particularly called, namely, corrosion along Park street, Dor- 
chester avenue, and Neponset avenue, in the Field's Corner 
district of Dorchester. We have been accustomed to ask for 
special excavations in order to examine the service pipes of this 
district, and last year we reported the notes that we made on 
several of these investigations. So evident is it now, however, 
that the lead services in this locality are being seriously injured 
that we no longer think it worth while to have special excavations 
made beyond those that are necessitated by the frequent cases of 
bursted pipes. 

Since our last report, breaks at the following places have 
occurred, all of which cases we attribute to electrolysis : 

June 8, 1900, No. 1294 Dorchester avenue, between Linden 
and Leedsdale streets. 

July 20, No. 208 Neponset avenue, opposite Boutwell avenue. 

January 25, 1901, No. 117 Park street. 

February 21, Neponset avenue and King street. 

March 1, No. 105 Park street. 

March 7, Park street, near corner of G-eneva avenue. 

These vary in distance from the power station from one-half 
mile to one mile. Within these limits we should expect to find 
corrosion on almost any of the services. 

Believing that the mains themselves were probably affected, we 
had six excavations made on July 23, 1900, all on Park street, 
between Adams street and Dorchester avenue, the short section 
where the services have suffered the most injury. We found, 
however, almost no corrosion beyond the usual surface rust, 
except in one instance. There, on the bell of the joint, the 
graphite formation could be shaved to a slight depth with a knife. 
Although the mains have, so far as we know, shown no marked 
corrosion, we should be surprised to learn that they are absolutely 
free. We happen to have found almost no signs of electrolytic

injury to mains in that district, but of course this does not prove 
that the injury is not going on in sections adjacent to where we 
made our inspections. 

In other localities there have been cases of bursting pipes, but 
only in the case, at the corner of Harrison avenue and Massachu- 
setts avenue, do we attribute the trouble to electrolysis. Along 
here we had four excavations made in order to examine the con- 
ditions. Only slight traces of corrosion were found. 

There was during the winter a break on Clinton street, another 
on Atlantic avenue, corner Summer street, another on Causeway 
street, between Friend and Portland streets, none of which do we 
think were due to electrolysis, unless it took place years ago, for 
the voltmeter readings have for several years past indicated that 
in these localities the current flows on to the pipes and not off of 
them, and there is no indication that the bursting was due to 
corrosion at the joints.

In General. 

During the year there has been an unusual number of 
breaks in large mains. On August 8 the easterly 30-inch 
main in Tremont street broke about 70 feet south of Boyls- 
ton street. At this point the original line of main pipe, laid 
about 1850, had been supported during the construction of 
the subway, the excavation for which extended 17 feet be- 
low the pipe ; when uncovered a rigid support in brick- 
work was found a few feet south of the break, while north- 
erly no rigid support was found for a distance of 21 feet. 
The pipe was of normal thickness, and the iron of excellent 
quality. This main was uncovered for a distance of 220 
feet between Boylston and Eliot streets, its position in rela- 
tion to the subway being practically the same as at the point 



134 City Document No. 41. 

where the break occurred ; the supports were found to vary 
in character, at one point the pipe being in immediate danger 
of failing, the old supports were removed and new ones 
of a uniform character were built under the pipe for the 
entire distance. A further examination of the conditions 
under this main should be made still further south of Tre- 
mont street. The easterly 30-inch main on Tremont street 
again broke on September 5, opposite Hollis street. At this 
point the pipe had been supported during the construction of 
the subway below it ; when the broken pipe was removed it 
was found to have rested directly upon a short upright piece of 
8 X 8-inch spruce, imbedded in cement at the point where 
the break occurred. Between October 19 and December 5 
six breaks occurred in the 48-inch main which runs from 
Chestnut Hill reservoir to Boylston street, Brookline, con- 
necting with the three large mains from the Brookline reser- 
voir; this main was laid in 1868, and up to the time of the 
first break had been connected directly with Chestnut Hill 
reservoir, and consequently had been subjected to a head not 
exceeding 1 5 pounds ; the immediate cause of the develop- 
ment of the breaks was an increased pressure on the low 
service of the City furnished by the Metropolitan Water 
Board, which increase, the main, if of normal condition, should 
have easily withstood. The broken pieces indicated in two 
or three cases at least the existence of old cracks, and in 
most of the samples tested the iron was found to be of 
inferior quality. The line is now in service under a pres- 
sure of over 30 pounds. The following is a statement of 
tests made of pieces cut from broken pipes :

136 City Document No. 41. 

In view of the dangerous and uncertain conditions existing 
at Shirley Gut it was decided to lay a second main under the 
Gut to Deer Island. The new line was located about 350 
feet west of the 8-inch line laid in 1896, at a point where the 
channel is 150 feet wide at low water mark. After a trench 
had been dredged across the channel a line of 12-inch flexible 
pipe, which had previously been made up on rolls on the 
Winthrop shore, was hauled across the channel by steam 
power, the friction of the pipe on the bottom of the channel 
being reduced by empty oil casks attached to the pipe. The 
trench was then refilled. A test showed the line to be prac- 
tically tight. The pipe used, shown in cut on opposite page, 
was of special design ; the fact that the lead must remain in 
the bell, whatever position the pipe assumes, is believed to be 
of advantage in sub-aqueous work. 

On May 10 the Metropolitan Water Board made a taking 
of the lines which formerly supplied East Boston and 
Chelsea, from the Boston side of the Mystic draw, through 
Chelsea and across Chelsea creek to East Boston, a total 
length of about 10,600 feet of pipe. A 21-inch siphon is 
now being laid under the Mystic river by the Metropolitan 
Board, they having removed the old 24-inch and SO-inck 
siphons, both of which were broken. 

Respectfully submitted, 

William Jackson, 

City Engineer.
