F r o m t h e W a t e r W o r k s Dept. Ann Arbor, Mich., April 3, 1914. F r o m th e Wat er W o rk s D e p a rt m e n t . To t h e Honorab le Common Council

of t h e City of Ann Arbor; Gentle-men--As the city is a'bout to pave iHill and Church streets, th e W a t e r Commissioners have decided t h a t a

twelve inch pipe should be continued from where it now leaves off on Hill

street to Church street and up C h u rc h street to South University av enu e to T,South State street, and up South iState street to connect with a ten

inch pipe. As t h e stand pipe located in t he

southeast p a rt of the city will have to be connected with a continuous twelve inch pipe, with th e exception of eight h u n d re d feet of ten inch

pipe on South State street, th i s is t h e only way which seems best to fol- low. Consequently this larg er pipe main must be continued before t h e

paving on Hill and Church st reets is commenced.

This will m a k e a direct line of large pipe from stand pipe to W a s h - ington street, where wat er is sup-plied by stations one and two.

If in your j u d gm e nt this request can not be allowed, t h e paving of Hill and Church streets oug'ht to be de-layed until such piping is done. The six inch pipe purchased recently will 'be used at th e south end of Ch u rch

to Prospect street, and ot her places in the city needing larger pipe.

The a p p r o x i m at e cost of m a t e ri a l for t h e a'bove im pro vem en t will be aro u n d seven thou sand dollars. We therefore ask your Honorable Body

to m a k e provisions for same, as we m ust at once order our pipes and

fittings so as not to delay the paving. Most respectfully, Wa ter W o r k s De-

p a r t m e n t of th e City of Ann Ar-bor. By, Geo. S. Van dawalker. Manager.
