Not illustrated. 1913 edition.

The results are tabulated as follows: Capacity Of "old' Cast Iron Pipes From Shattuck To Overlook Reservoir If this pipe were to supply only the water collected from the natural drainage area above Shattuck Reservoir or from this area supplemented by Ashby Reservoir, it is probable that the 20-inch pipe would be adequate. With the probability that the ultimate development of additional supply will include Watatic Reservoir and Rice Pond, the waters of which will be drawn through Ashby Reservoir into Shattuck Reservoir, the pipe from Shattuck to Overlook Reservoir should be given a considerably larger capacity, and a 24-inch pipe is recommended. 20-inch Pipe 24-inch Pipe Million Gallons per Day Shattuck Reservoir empty half full full 3.75 6.1 5.20 8.4 6.33 10.2 The cost of the 24-inch pipe already laid from Overlook Reservoir, to replace the old conduit, has been about $3 per foot. About 14,000 feet additional will be required to reach Ashby Reservoir, which at $3 per foot will cost $42,000.
