Excerpt from Report of the Commissioners Appointed Under the Order of the City Council, August 26, 1844, to Report the Best Mode and Expense of Bringing the Water of Long Pond Into the City of Boston This involves an inquiry of great difficulty, arising from the embarrassments to the exact measurement of the ¿ow of the water, While it is subject to theuses of the proprietors of the mills at the outlet, and more especially from the great variableness of the ¿ow, in different parts of every season, and also the great inequality between one season and another. The Commissioners have given as much attention to this inquiry, With the aid of a careful engineer, as the period Which has elapsed since their appoint ment would allow, and they have also availed them selves of the observations and calculations, Which were made by the Commissioners Whose report is above referred to. The unusual drought of the past season, arising from the small quantity of rain which fell during a period of two or three months, was fa votable for determining what may be regarded as the minimum ¿ow of water in any ordinary season. It may perhaps be proper to regard it as a season of extraordinary drought, not likely to be often sur passed, though it Would be unsafe to assume that even severer droughts may not occur hereafter.
