WATER WORKS EXPENSES.
lU'ply by Secretary C. M. Hurst to
Taxpayers' Criticisms and In?
Editor Daily Item:
Since "A Taxpayer" in your issue
of 23rd lltgt, makes The Item his
medium of Inquiry about certain ex?
travagant expenditures of the Water
Department. I beg space to reply.
When the standpipe is full of water,
the wind blows it out in spray over
the next door neighbor's premises,
thereby creating a nuisance of which
complaint has been made for years
?long before the city purchased the
property. A suit for damages had
been thereatened against the city
and the matter was a constant source
of annoyance to the Commissioners of
Public Works, as well as to the occu?
pants of the house. Finally the own?
ers of the house offered to bear half
the cost of abating the nuisance. A
gutter was attached to the stand-pipe
to take the water off without allowing
the wind a chance to blow it about.
The expense incurred was thirty dol?
lars, one half of which the Commis?
sioners paid. In reference to the
electric gong attachment, that is still
maintained. Some times it worjvs
successfully, sometimes it does not.
When it fails to operate, the Engi?
neer is liable to run the stand-pipe
over, although that is a hard thing
to do since the consumption of water
has increased so much. As an addi?
tional safeguard, a water gauge is
kept at the pumping station, which
indicates the depth of water In the
stand-pipe. In fact no means is neg?
lected for saving labor, fuel and ma?
"If Taxpayer" will specify the other
extravagances at which he vaguely
hints, they will be explained and
stopped, if possible. The Commis?
sioners?who by the way are taxpay?
ers also?are anxious to reduce ex?
penses to a minimum.
