Strana 1 - The metropolitan water and sewerage board is hereby authorized to construct and maintain such works and to provide such other means as it may deem necessary for measuring the water supplied to each of the cities and towns in the metropolitan water district, and the expenses thereof shall be considered as a part of the expenditure required for the construction and maintenance, respectively, of the metropolitan water works. SECTION 2. The said board shall report to the next general court...
Strana 51 - ... one-sixth of the total valuation of any city and town which has not reached the safe capacity of its sources of supply in a dry year, as determined by the Water Board, and has not made application to the Board for water. The remainder to be raised is assessed to the other cities and towns in the district, onethird in proportion to their respective valuations, and two-thirds in proportion to their respective populations, including, however, only one-sixth of the total valuation and one-sixth of...
Strana 2 - ... expenditure required for the construction and maintenance, respectively, of the metropolitan water works. SECTION 2. The said board shall report to the next general court the quantity of water supplied to each of the said cities and towns, and shall also report whether water is being used therein unnecessarily or improperly, and shall make recommendations as to the manner in which waste may be prevented and as to the manner in which the consumption of water may be considered in the apportionment...
Strana 3 - The consumption also largely varies in each municipality according to the season of the year. The measurements for the other half of the year, including a larger portion of the colder weather, would show a somewhat greater consumption, and would also show a still greater variation in the different periods. In the cold weather early in January of the present year the consumption in the District rose in one day to 160,000,000 gallons, equivalent to 175 gallons per inhabitant. A corresponding but much...
Strana 16 - CHAMBER. cones of cast iron, joined at the smallest diameter by a short throat piece of cast iron lined with brass, having a diameter varying in different meters from one-quarter to one-half of the diameter of the large ends of the cones, the three parts making what is known as the meter tube. At the up-stream end and at the throat small holes are drilled into the tube, from which pipes are carried to the register. The operation of the meter is due to the fact that when water is flowing through the...

This is illustrated by the following tables (Nos. 5 and 6), the first of which gives the per capita consumption in tenement houses in the city of Boston during the year 1902, and the second the per capita consumption in houses of differing value in other cities : — TABLE No. 5 — Use of Water in Tenement Houses in Boston during 1902. TABLE No. 6. — Domestic Consumption per Capita in Newton, Fall River, Worcester and London, Eng.,...

Strana 17 - ... thus made dependent upon the quantity of water passing through the meter, and by suitable mechanism the quantity is recorded by a counter, and the rate of flow at intervals of ten minutes is continuously recorded upon a roll of paper, so that the fluctuations in the flow during different hours of the day can be observed. Although the pressure at the throat of the meter is often several pounds less than at the inlet or up-stream end, the lost pressure is nearly all regained by the time the water...
Strana 17 - ... quantity of water flowing through the tube. The differing pressures at the up-stream end and throat of the meter tube are transmitted through small pipes to the register, which can be located at any convenient point within 300 or 400 feet of the tube. In the register the differences of pressure affect the level of a column of mercury which carries a float. The position of this float is thus made dependent upon the quantity of water passing through the meter ; and by suitable mechanism the quantity...
