ELLISOX WA\ T TS METERS
Commissioner Says City Needs
Greater Water Supply.
Commissioner ELll?on of the Department of
Water Supply in a statement yesterday Bays
that on account of lack of meters there is a large
waste of water and that the installation of
meters Is a crying need.
Incidentally, this Is Just what the Sulllvans,
big and litUe, and Colonel M. Clarence Padden,
the new Water Register, wanted him to say. As
stated in The Tribune last week. Colonel Padden
has been appointed to the department to take
charpe of Installing about one hundred thousand
meters. They will cost about $25 each, and it
would not surprise the suspicious if they were
all of one kind and some friend of "Bis: Tim"
Sullivan made them all.
Congressman Timothy D. Sullivan and his
cousin, "Little Tim," are sure that the city is
loping millions of dollars' worth of water
through lack of meters. They are In favor of
meters Colonel Padden's kind. It is a proposi
tion in finished brass that will bear watching
and will be watched for the nc-xt four years.
Coiriir.issioi.er Ellison says, in part:
Referring to the article published this morn
ing. I desire to state that almost from the day
I took oflice I have b«-en conducting an in
vestigation of the methods of the Bureau of
Water Register, and have consulted the Mayor
on various occasions in the same connection.
My opinion 16 that many meters have been re
moved after their Installation and for various
causes. I think that the specific instance re
ferred to in the article will be found to rest
upon the proposition that they were apartment
house*, and, as Fuoh. private residences. No
meters have been ordered removed since the
first cf tho year for any cause, as I now recall.
Furthermore, meters cannot be removed with
out the permission of the Commissioner, and I
have given notice to the ♦ft'ect that no deputy
shall sigh a permit to r<ir.o\>» a meter.
So far as concerns the statement that many
big buildings that phouid be metered have been
overlooked, I can only tay that I believe this to
be a fact, and the explanation offered to me
upon my taking office v-as that an Insufficiency
of belp, which prevented the Water Register
from making the inspections that he desired to
make, had led to this result. Almost at the in
ception of my administration efforts were be
gun to reach these buildings, and a very sub
stantial nu:r.ber of them have already been
reached. Under the administration of Mr. Pad
dtn as Water Register, if I recall the figures
correctly, be has already ordered the installa
tion of "something like ISO meters. His activity
in this respect is entirely satisfactory to me,
and is along the lines of the policy that I desire
to ' low.
To help Water Register Padden in his efforts
to mf»T all places in which meters 6hould be
installed. I have, at his request, asked for the
transfer of ten additional inspectors from Brook
lyn to the Borough of Manhattan, and these
men I expect to have subject to the Water
Register s instructions, by the first of the week.
The order for the transfer of these Inspectors
was made yesterday after a consultation with
Deputy Commissioner Cozier, of Brooklyn.
How much water has been wasted, lost or
stolen, by reason of the non-mastering of prop
erties heretofore, I cannc*. Fay. n^r do I believe
it is possible of estimation. That the quantity
has be«>n larce i have no doubt. If the addi
tional Inspectlon that I have already provided
for be successful, mm I am confident it will, there
will be a revenue derived from our water meters
greater than ever In the history of the depart
That the metering of every structure in trio
city of New-York would save water enough to
render it unnecessary to increase our supply Is
entirely fallacious, in my opinion, and I doubt
whether or not we would save 20 per cent by the
most implete system of metering and the pre
vention of wast** in every other way
If I am successful in getting into Suffolk
County, with the privilege of taking water
therefrom, I will be able to add approximately
150,000.000 gallons of water a day to the water
supply of Brooklyn and Manhattan Even under
thosp" conditions, th«- water supply will not be
sufficient at the termination of the time, when.
under reasonable circumstances, wo can secur«
tne Catskill water, or water from some other
Four< ■•» In other words, the sf-ouring of more
water from Suffolk County and the saving to
which I have referred will simply tide us over
until a larger and more permanent eupply can
ba obtained. ,
