SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT 

OF THE 



WATEE COMMISSIONEE 



FOR THE YEAR ENDING JANUARY 31, 1902. 



Office of the Water Commissioner, 

City Hall, Boston, April 1, 1902. 

Hon. Patrick A. Collins, 

Mayor of Boston : 

Dear Sir, — Section twenty-four of chapter three of the 
Revised Ordinances requires that every officer in charge of a 
department shall within thirty days after the close of the 
financial year transmit to the Mayor a report containing a 
statement of the acts and doings and receipts and expendi- 
tures of the department for such financial year. I did not 
assume the duties of Water Commissioner until after the 
expiration of the fiscal year ending January 31, 1902, having 
been appointed on March IT, 1902, to fill the vacancy 
caused by the death of Commissioner Augustus P. Martin. I 
therefore submit herewith, under head of " Seventh Annual 
Report of the Water Commissioner, " a statement showing 
the financial condition of the Water Department at the end 
of said fiscal year, together with detailed reports of the City 
Engineer and the several Superintendents. 

Respectfully, 

Eugene S. Sullivan, 

Water Commissioner.

The abatements allowed on account of 1901 assessments, amounting to $23,113.73 
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 1896, 1898, 1899, and 1900, were due to bills uncol- 
lectible, changes of ownership, failures, shut-off for non-payment, cleaning up old 
accounts.

90 City Document No. 48. 

Main pipes, in danger of collapse through the operations of 
various contractors and corporations, were watched night and 
day with an attendant expense to the department of {$1,300. 

The pipes in the harbor were watched and cared for, and where 
necessary protected from the incursions of tide-water. 

Test holes were dug along the line of the 40-inch main in 
Brookline avenue, also in Causeway street, to enable the Engi- 
neering Department to determine the condition of the pipes. 

The cost of making various repairs in main pipes as scheduled 
in the foregoing statement varied in amount from $1.11 to 
$1,503.91. The most costly breaks were those in Warren street 
Brookline ($1,503.91), Dewey square ($917.99) and Dean road, 
Brookline ($692.13). 

The work of replacing an 8 -inch sleeve on the 8 -inch main in 
Shirley gut was a particularly difficult and expensive job, owing 
to the extraordinarv conditions under which it was done. The 
total cost of the job was $1,744.98. 

Inspectors were constantly employed looking after the interests 
of the Water Department where corporations and contractors 
were at work. Conduits and other underground fixtures are 
almost continually being laid in the already overcrowded streets 
of the city, and it is always a great temptation to those in charge 
of this work to either lay their conduit over our main or else so 
near to it as to make it impossible to reach it to niake repairs 
when necessary. This is a serious matter, and nothing short of 
eternal vigilance on our part serves to protect us. 

An item of ever increasing proportions is that of ' ' Service 
Pipes moved from way of various corporations," chief of which 
is the Sewer Division of the Street Department, which is establish- 
ing a new system of high level surface drainage in several sec- 
tions of the city. The masonry work of this drainage system 
seems to come in contact with our service pipes quite frequently, 
and it is necessary to either raise or lower them so as to avoid pass- 
ing through the sewer. It is more often the case that they are 
raised and in some cases this brings the pipes so near to the sur- 
face of the street that it is necessary to insulate them as a pro- 
tection against frost. All this means additional expense and the 
consumption of time, that could be used to advantage otherwise. 

The same conditions as mentioned in the preceding paragraph 
apply to our main pipes and hydrants as well.

REPORT OF THE ENGINEER. 



ENGHNEERIN& DEPARTMENT, 

50 City Hall, February 1, 1902. 

Gen. a. p. Martin, 

Water Commissioner : 

Sm, — I herewith submit the following report for the past 
year of the work done and the records kept : 

During the year 18.9 miles of main pipe have been laid 
and 12.7 miles abandoned, making a total length in the 
system of 719.6 miles. The following is some of the most 
important work done : 

The 30-inch H. S. main in Washington street, Dorchester, 
was extended from Talbot avenue to Walton street, a distance 
of 792 feet. 

A 30-inch L. S. main and a 16-inch H. S. main were laid 
in Bowdoin street, from Beacon street to Ashburton place, 
after the grade of Bowdoin street had been lowered, on 
account of the construction of the State House park. 

The 24-inch H. S. main in Columbia road was connected 
between Ceylon and Quincy streets, greatly reenforcing the 
water supply in the H. S. districts of the northerly portion of 
Dorchester and of South Boston. 

Two 20-inch L. S. pipes were laid in Southampton street 
over the N. Y., N. H. & H. R.R., to be connected at a later 
date with the 30-inch main, when it is raised in the new 
street. 

Sixteen-inch mains were laid in Causeway, Lowell, Willard, 
Spring and Allen streets, from Prince street to Charles street, 
and in Staniford street, from Causeway street to Cambridge 
street, a total distance of 5,110 feet, connections being made 
with the 30-inch L. S. main, in Causeway street at Haveihill 
street and at Cambridge street ; the pipes relaid were old, 
and in addition to being too small for present needs, were, in 
many cases, dangerously weak. 

A 16-inch H. S. main was laid in Blue Hill avenue, Rox- 
bury, replacing an 8-inch main from Maywood street to 
Holborn street, a distance of 839 feet. 

A 16-inch L. S. main was laid in Mason street, Charles- 



Water Department. 95 

town, from Front street to Bow street, replacing a 4-inch 
main. 

A 16-inch L. S. main, replacing a 6-inch main, was laid in 
Miller street, Charlestown, from Rutherford avenue to Main 
street, a distance of 675 feet. 

A 16-inch main was laid in Columbia road. South Boston, 
between G street and Q street, a distance of 2,288 feet. 

The 16-inch main in Blue Hill avenue, Dorchester, was 
extended from Walk Hill street to Collins street, a distance 
of 1,183 feet. 

A large part of the work done during the year has been 
the replacing of old mains with sizes that are adequate for 
present and estimated future needs ; this policy has been 
consistently carried on for several years past, and the result 
has been a great improvement in the fire protection of the 
city. 

The only supply of South Boston, east of Fort Point chan- 
nel and north of West First street, is from the low service, 
through a single 30-inch main in D street; this main should 
be extended across Fort Point channel at Congress street or 
Northern avenue to afford a second main supply pipe in case 
of emergency. 

The high service should also be carried from the city 
proper into this territory, to supply adequate fire pipe and 
sprinkler service. The main for this purpose would cross 
Fort Point channel in the same location as the 30-inch low 
service, and would ultimately connect with the existing high 
service in the older portion of South Boston. The assessed 
valuation of buildings in this part of South Boston is $3,71 2,- 
500, an increase of $2,088,100 in the past ten years. 

I recommend that the present siphons under Fort Point 
channel at Dover street be widened to sixty feet at an early 
date. 

Respectfully submitted, 

William Jackson, ' 

City Engineer.
