$3,159.68

The consumption in 1904, as shown by table, was 141 ,-
771,450 gallons and the net cost to the consumers, $9,766,60,
while the consumption in 1907 was 154,360,500 gallons and
the net cost to consumers $7,873.21, a saving to the consum-
ers of $1,893.39, and at the same time giving them the use
of 12,589,050 gallons more water.

If the same quantity of water that was used in 1907 had
been used in 1904, under the three rates, the net cost to the
consumers would have been $3,159.68 more.

450 REPORT OF WATER BOARD

REDUCTION IN CONSUMPTION.

There has been a marked reduction in the consumption
for the past year as a result of the system of careful inspec-
tion inaugurated by the Commissioners, the total consump-
tion for the year being 1,923,311,000 gallons, as against
2,127.856.000 gallons for the preceding year, a decrease of
204,545,000 gallons.

The wisdom of increasing and making more efficient
our Inspection Department has been nowhere demonstrated
more fully than by the condition of our local reservoirs
from which the overflow or waste during the year amounted
to 612,924,000 gallons or a quantity sufficient for an added
population of 17,000 using 100 gallons per day each. In
other words our available water supply during the year was
sufficient for a population of 71,500 on a 100 gallon per cap-
ita basis.

This excellent condition can only be attributed to the
vigilant inspection which we have inaugurated and not to
a favorable year, as the rainfall on the Whiting Street shed
was but slightly above the average, while that on the Ashley
sheil was nearly two inches below the average.

When it is considered that from two to two and one-
half millions of gallons of extravagant waste has been cut
off per day, it is easily seen why there was this large over-
flow from our reservoirs.

The run off from the Fomer water shed where the rain-
fall was exactly the average, was 6,650,650,000 gallons or a
quantity sufficient in itself to supply a population of 182,000
using 100 gallons per day per capita.

Summing up, the total yield or run off from all our
water sheds as actually measured during the year was in
round numbers 8,500,000,000 gallons, or a quantity, if all
available, sufficient to supply a city having a population of
233.000. using 100 gallons per capita.

For the overflow of Ashley and Whiting Street Reser-
voirs, together with the rainfall on the sheds we refer you
to the following table:

45> REPORT OF WATER BOARD

WATER DEPARTMENT CENSUS.

A census of the city was taken by the water inspectors
and the total population was found by them to be 53,422.
the population supplied with city water being 53,047.

After receiving the report of the inspectors, it was de-
cided to adopt 53,000 as the basis to be used in computing
the per capita consumption, instead of 51,000, the estimated
population, the change taking effect from June 9th .

RECEIPTS FROM WATER RENTS.

The receipts from water rents were $122,421.72, an in-
crease of .$4,898.46 over those of the year previous.

The total receipts from all sources were $129,437.22.
being $6,229.06 in excess of the receipts for 1906.

TAX ON CONSTRUCTION ACCOUNT.

This Department paid the city $22,045.16, being the tax
on its construction account for 1907, and received from the
city for water and rental of hydrants $12,670.59, a net gain
to the city proper of $9,374.57.

Commencing with 1902 the Department has paid the
city each year a tax on its construction account, at the same
rate per $1000 as is levied on the property of other tax
payers, the total amount paid by the Department during
the past six years aggregating $129,296.69; and has received
from the city, for the same period, for water rents and
rental of hydrants, $67,369.74, leaving the net amount paid
to the city by this Department $61,926.95. or an average of
over $10,300 for each year.

SINKING FUNDS.

The Sinking Funds for the payment of water bonds
have been increased by the transfer of $9,600 from the water
rents account, and by earnings amounting to $3,578.40,
making the total increase for the year $13,178.40.

The total of the funds on December 31st was $99,-
86o.82.

REPORT OF WATER BOARD 453

The Board desires to express its appreciation of the
faithful services of Superintendent John D. Hardy, whose
term of office expired on April 30th.

Mr. Hardy came to the Department on May 1st, 1881,
and during his twenty-six years of service as superintend-
ent had a large share in the growth and development of the
water system.

There has been an abundance of water during the past
year, and it has been of good quality.



The. cast iron mains were extended 7,249 feet. For lo-
cation, size and length of extensions see Table A.

The length of cast iron mains is 83.74 miles; and of tem-
porary wrought iron, 5.94 miles. For location, size and
length of mains see Tables B and C.

Thirty-two gates were set in new locations. The total
number to date is 931. For location and size see Tables D
and E.

Twelve hydrants were set in new locations, and 4 were
replaced. The total number of public fire hydrants is 671.
For location, etc., see Tables F and Q. Following Table G
is a summary of fire service in the various mills in the city,
which is additional to the above.

Twenty-seven meters w T ere set in new locations, and 17
discontinued, making the total now in use 328. For make,
size and location see Table H.

Seventy-one service pipe connections were added during
the year and 11 discontinued, making the total number in
use to date 3,941.

Twenty-three leaks in service pipes and 15 in main pipes
have been repaired.

The average depth of water, in the gatehouse at Wright
pond for the year was 13 feet, 2 inches.
