Description

Excerpt from Annual Report of the Cochituate Water Board, to the City Council of Boston, for the Year 1855 We' have been brought, during the past year, still nearer, and in fact close upon the time anticipated 'in former reports, when it will be necessary, in order to keep up an equal supply over the whole territory, 'to provide' some mode of introducing a further quantity; or to restrict its use to merely domestic purposes, and thus lose the income, no inconsiderable amount, which 'we now derive from its use in manufactories and for other purposes. There does not seem to be any other alterna tive, except indeed the almost hopeless one, of attempt ing to produce a greater economy and care in the use of the water, and preventing the reckless waste which seems everywhere to prevail. If this could be done effectually, it would leave, of course, an ample supply of water for all the useful purposes for which it could be required; as it is probable that at least one half of the whole quantity now used, is absolutely and unprofit ably wasted.
