EIGHTH ANNUAL REPORT 



OF THE 



WATER COMMISSIONER 



FOR THE YEAR 1902-1903. 



Office of the Water Commissioner, 

City Hall, Boston, February 1, 1903. 

Hon. Patrick A. Collins, 

Mayor of the City of Boston : 

Sir, — I submit herewith the eighth annual report of the 
Water Commissioner for the year ending January 31, 1903. 

The total receipts of the department for the year (includ- 
ing |200,000 credited from taxes) were $2,608,378.02, and 
the total expenditures were 12,546,608.90, the balance of 
$61,769.12 being carried over to the next year. 

The increase from sales of water over the previous year 
was 192,307.67. 

The amount expended for current expenses and exten- 
sions for the year was $742,973.08, being a decrease of 
$127,021.16 from the previous year. 

The Metropolitan Water Assessment was $1,274,105.31, 
an increase of $104,999.69 over that for last year. 

The net water debt on this date is $607,384.06, it having 
been decreased by the sum of $322,083.45 during the year, 
and there are now outstanding water loans to the amount of 
$9,501,000. 

The Water Sinking Fund being ample to take care of the 
present water debt, there was no sinking fund requirement 
for the year. 



2 City Document No. 43. 

Owing to the many changes in and additions to various 
underground systems which are continually being made, the 
question of the safe maintenance of the water mains has 
become a serious problem, and the work of the department 
has thereby grown more difficult and expensive. Quite a 
number of changes in water mains of considerable §xtent 
were made necessary on account of subway construction in 
State street, and by the abolishment of grade crossings at 
Blue Hill avenue and Oakland street. The various kinds of 
pavement now generally in use, such as asphalt, pitch and 
pebble, and cement with concrete base, also tend largely to 
increase the expense of carrying on the department. 

The work of relaying mains too small for present demands 
made upon them for fire protection, and of replacing mains 
weakened by action of the soil in which they were laid, has 
received special attention, resulting in a very great improve- 
ment in the fire service of the city. Some of the notably 
weak places in the pipe system have already been strengthened, 
but much work of this kind still remains to be done to 
adequately meet the demands of the future. 

The demand for the high service is constantly increasing, 
and a number of extensions of high-service mains have been 
made in various parts of the city proper, necessitated by the 
installation of fire pipe systems in high buildings. 

A close inspection has been maintained in all cases where 
pipes have been exposed by the operations of corporations, 
contractors, etc., and constant care has been exercised to 
prevent the conduits and other underground fixtures of said 
corporations, etc., from being constructed in such a manner 
as to render the water pipes inaccessible or liable to damage 
from contact. The construction of the new high-level sur- 
face drains in certain sections of the city has necessitated a 
great many changes in water pipes at considerable expense 
to allow of the uninterrupted passage of said drains. 

Many of the old-style Boston hydrants, obsolete in type 
and of insufficient capacity, have been abandoned and re- 
placed by the more modern post hydrants, of which 388 
have /been established during the year. In the past the de- 
partment has experienced much trouble from the indiscrim- 
inate use of hydrants by careless or mechanically ignorant 
persons outside of the Water or Fire Departments, such use 
almost invariably resulting in injury to the hydrants, thus 
impairing their use and causing delay in case of fire. This 
trouble has been remedied to a great extent by restricting 
the use of hydrants, outside of the Fire Department, to only 
those who could show a badge of authority from the Water 



Water Depaktment. 3 

Commissioner. The aid of the Police Department has been 
requested in the enforcement of this restriction. A force of 
men were kept at work during the cold weather inspecting 
the hydrants daily for the purpose of keeping them in con- 
stant readiness for use in fire extinguishment. 

A special force has been kept at work much of the time 
during the past year in blowing off the stagnant water from 
the various dead-ends throughout the city, this work being 
carried on mostly at night in order to avoid inconvenience to 
water-takers. These dead-ends were "blown off" 1,132 
times, or double the number of times for the year previous. 
The ends are being abolished as fast as practicable by con- 
necting them so as to make a circulation of water. 

In the relaying of mains, large quantities of old pipes 
accumulate, which, in most cases being of no further use, 
are carted to the yard, broken up and sold for old junk. 
The equitable and very satisfactory method of selling this 
junk at auction has been continued, and a further improve- 
ment made by the insertion of a clause in the terms of sale 
specifying that no allowance will be made for dirt, and that 
the junk must be bought and paid for just as it is at the time 
of sale. This method has proved very successful, inasmuch 
as it eliminates a much-vexed question which was always a 
source of trouble. 

In cases where it becomes necessary to shut off water while 
making connections of mains, etc., in the business sections 
of the city, the work is, as far as practicable, done after 
working hours, so as to avoid as far as possible the interrup- 
tion of business. 

To avoid the spread of disease among horses the watering 
troughs throughout the city have been regularly emptied, 
and their interiors burned with a torch, thus destroying any 
germs that may have been deposited or developed therein. 

The shops at the Albany-street yard have been kept run- 
ning throughout the year in the manufacture of gates, 
hydrants, cocks and other fittings necessary to the main- 
tenance of the works. 

Reports of the Superintendents of the Income and Distri- 
bution Divisions showing details of work performed, also 
report of the Engineer, will be found herewith annexed. 

Respectfully, 

Eugene S. Sullivan, 

Water Commission e7\

The abatements allowed on account of 1902 assessments, amounting to $20,764.62, 
were due to changes in occupancy of premises, changes in ownership, vacancies, 
errors in yaluations and assessments, inaccuracy of meters as proved by tests, under- 
ground leaks for which the owner could not be held entirely responsible, nnd for 
other reasons, which, in the judgment of the General Superintendent, entitled the 
water-taker to consideration. 

The abatements on account of ISOO and 1901, were due to bills uncollectible, 
changes of ownership, failures, shiit-off for non-payment, cleaning up old accounts.

Main pipes, in danger of collapse through the operations of 
various contractors and corporations, were watched night and 
day. This refers especially to along the line of the Metropohtan 
sewer in West Roxbury, where blasting was done to a consider- 



6Q City Document No. 43. 

able extent, and in State street, city, where the East Boston 
tunnel is in course of construction. This latter work necessitated 
extensive changes in the arrangement of our pipes, all of which 
were carried out without accident or hitch, although under the 
most unfavorable conditions. 

The pipes in the harbor were watched and, when necessary, 
protected from the incursions of tide water. 

Test holes were dug along the line of the 30-inch low-service 
main in Tremont street, between Dover and Ruggles streets, to 
enable the Engineering Department to determine the condition of 
the pipe. 

The syphon pipes at the different bridges were emptied during 
the cold weather and refilled as soon as weather conditions would 
permit. 

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 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 make repairs. This is a serious matter, 
and nothing short of eternal vigilance on our part serves to pro- 
tect us.

REPORT OF THE ENGINEER. 



Engineeeikg Department, 

50 City Hall, February 2, 1903. 

Me. Eugene S. Sullivan, 

Water Commissioner : 

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

Some of the most important work done is as follows : 

The 40-inch low service main in Brookline avenne was 
originally laid in 1859, and for about 1,800 feet where imbed- 
ded in soft marsh mud, it had become corroded so as to be dan- 
gerously weak. For a distance of 1,370 feet southerly from 
Butler street it has been relaid ; the new location is in clean 
earth, entirely above the mud. It is intended to finish the 
work during the coming year. 

The 30-inch high service main in Washington street, 
Dorchester, was extended from Talbot avenue to Burt street, 
a distance of 1,515 feet, connection being made with the 
local distribution system at Rockwell street. About 1,000 feet 
of 30-inch low service main was laid in Southampton street 
where the grade of the street was raised over the tracks of 
the N.Y., N.H. & H. R.R., and a. short length of 30-inch 
low service main was laid in Southampton street across the 
second waterway west of the N.Y., N.H. & H. R.R., replac- 
ing a 24-inch spiral steel pipe which had failed. 

A 16-inch low service main was laid in Bedford street 
from Summer to Washington street. 

A 16-inch low service main was laid in Harrison avenue 
from Northampton to Dudley street, replacing a 6-inch 
main. 

A 16-inch low service main was laid in Dorchester avenue 
from Second to A street, replacing a 6-inch main. 

A 16-inch low service main was laid in Columbia road 
from Douglass to Vale street, completing the 16-inch line 
on the southerly side of South Boston. 

Changes in and additions to various underground systems 
are continually being made, and the question of the safe 
maintenance of our water mains under difficulties is ever

present ; much time has been spent during the year on 
account of work of this kind. Some of the larger changes 
in water mains were made necessary in the case of subway 
construction on State street and the grade crossings at Blue 
Hill avenue and Oakland street. 

Since 1896 a, consistent polic}^ has been followed of relay- 
ing mains too small for present demands made upon them 
for fire protection, and mains whose strength have been 
impaired by the soil in which they were laid ; the result has 
been that a very great improvement in the fire service of the 
city has been made. The notably weak places in the system 
have already been strengthened, but much work of this kind 
still remains to be done to adequatel}^ meet the demands of 
the immediate future. 

The following statement shows the relaying which has 
been done since 1896 in the City Proper and South End, 
exclusive of a large amount of work in other portions of the 
city : 

28,000 feet 16 inch, replacing 6 inch, 8 inch and 12 inch. 
60,500 " 12 " " 4 inch, 6 inch, 8 inch and 12 inch. 

16,100 " 10 " " 4 inch and 6 inch. 

23,400 " 8 " " 4 inch and 6 inch. 

20,288 " 6 " " 4 inch and 6 inch. 



148,288 feet, or 28.1 miles. 

The accompanying map, at end of report, shows the work 
done in this line, and also the general distribution system 
of this portion of the city. 

A break occurred in the 30-inch main on Tremont street 
at West Newton, under conditions shown in cut opposite. 
The following are the results of tests made to determine the 
holding power of caps on ends of pipe ; the caps and spigot 
ends used were of standard B.W.W. design, except in the 
cases mentioned where pipes were used without beads : the 
lead joints were 2 inches by i inch (unless otherwise stated), 
and were made to correspond as closely as possible to the 
actual practice of the Water Department. Pressure was 
supplied by a small hand force-pump.

Water Department. 75 

A test was made to determine the strength of the new 
style of 12-inch gate which was designed in this office, and is 
manufactured in the machine shop of the Water Department. 
The composition plug (made of 40 parts copper, 3i parts tin, 
li parts zinc, i part lead) was first tested by bolting a " test 
ing " head or cap to one bell of the gate, seating the plug 
and applying pressure to the space between cap and plug ; 
the elastic limit of the composition was reached at a pres- 
sure between 525 and 650 pounds per square inch; at 725 
pounds per square inch a leak developed in the body of the 
gate and the test was discontinued. The deflection at 
centre of plug was measured for each 25 pounds increase 
of pressure. The high pressure noticeably dished or curved 
the centre web of plug but no crack developed. 

The cast-iron shell Avas tested with the plug open and 
with testing heads on each bell securely tied together by 
steel rods ; the deflection of the shell for each 25 pounds 
increase of pressure was measured on each side separately at 
the centre of the flanges between body and bonnet of gate. 
At a pressure of 775 pounds per square inch a crack devel- 
oped in the flange of the body, but did not extend into the 
body proper ; at 850 pounds per square inch three cracks 
developed in the flanges and two in the body of gate, at the 
same time one entire side of the bonnet was blown out, flying 
across the room with considerable force, the water falling to 
the floor quietly. The deflections of the iron shell were 
uniform until fracture occurred. Previous to applying 
the high pressure water was allowed to run freely through the 
stuffing-box in order to expel the air, and once during 
the test it was necessary to tighten up the stuffing-box in 
order to prevent leakage. 

There are decided indications of danger from electrolytic 
action in the vicinity of the new power house of the Boston 
Elevated Railway Company on Commercial street and, also, 
in the vicinity of their other power stations. How^ever, dur- 
ing the past year, the only damage by electrolysis which has 
been discovered has been to a few service pipes. The elec- 
trical surveys that have been made have not shov/n the con- 
ditions to be more alarming than for the past few years. A 
large number of observations and tests of the condition of 
old mains have failed to discover any evidence of serious 
damage. In view of the fact that serious damage has been 
done during the past year on the Metropolitan System and 
to pipes in surrounding towns, it is surprising that more evi- 
dence of damage from electrolysis has not been found. 

Respectfully submitted, 

William Jackson. 

Citi/ Engineer.
