Dear Sir,

Chatham Internal Sewerage.
Dockyard Sewerage.

As a result of our interviews and correspondence with the Admiralty, we have finally received from them the enclosed letter, suggesting an arrangement for collecting their sewage at a point in the road north of the Royal Marine barracks, and pumping into a high level sewer in Dock Road.  The Corporation would provide the Pumping station and necessary machinery.
We consider this a satisfactory solution to the difficulty of dealing with the Dock Yard Sewage, as it entirely does away with the necessity of a deep level tunnel sewer in treacherous ground, which would be difficult and costly.
A greater advantage however, is that the Pumping Storage Tank need not be so deep by about 10 feet, which means that all the low level sewage of your town will be pumped a 10 feet less lift.
The High Level Sewer in Dock Road, under this arrangement, will be of a less diameter than was necessary for the lower sewer, and will be of stoneware for the greater part of the length, instead of iron.
The estimated quantity of sewage to be provided for from the Dockyard, is 216,000 gallons a day – the whole of this would have to be pumped, and we should propose an Electric Motor and Pump to work automatically operated by a float switch.
The position chosen by the admiralty for the Pumping Station is on their ground, but could have convenient access from the Road north of the Royal Marine Barracks without entry through the Dockyard, as shown on enclosed tracing.  The question of supply of Electric Power can be settled later.
We advise the Corporation to accept this offer of the admiralty and give the necessary undertaking.

Your faithfully,
W.H. Radford & Son

CHATHAM SEWERAGE.
DRAFT EVIDENCE FOR THE PROPOSED CHATHAM INQUIRY.

The Chatham internal sewers from about one-third of the scheme designed by us in 1911, the other two parts are:-

1.   Rochester Internal sewers.
2.   Sewerage disposal Works and Outfall Sewer under the jurisdiction of a Joint Chatham & Rochester Board.
We are, of course, only dealing with the Chatham Internal sewers this morning.
For the purpose of obtaining Tenders, we divided the Chatham Internal Works into four parts:-
1.   High Level Sewers mainly in roads and passage.  This Contract was let in May 1925 at a cost of £74,958.  It is now nearly completed.  We anticipate a very small saving on it.
2.   Low Level & Storm Water sewers, mostly in roads, in the lowest, most congested and difficult parts of the Town.  Tenders have been obtained for this Contract and come to a total of £92,506: sanction to borrow this sum is been sought.
3.   Pumping Station and culvert conveying the storm Water to the Medway.  We are preparing the Quantities for this work.  The estimated cost is £32,000.
4.   High Level Sewers mostly in back yards and gardens.  This contract is also in preparation.  The Estimated cost is £28,000.

ESTIMATES.

A start was made in designing the Scheme in 1911 But constructional work on the Chatham Internal Sewers did not commence until May 1925.  During these 14 years, four estimates were made, in 1913, 1916, 1919 and 1923.  The last estimate made before the work actually started was that made by Mr. Binnie in 1923.  The Chatham Internal Sewers were therein estimated to cost £?????????.  The present estimated cost is as follows:-

Contract No.1.  High Level sewers (nearly completed).  £74,958.
Contract No.2.  Low Level Sewers (sanction is now being sought).  £86,695.
Contract No.3.  Cast Iron Pipes (Sanction is not being sought).  £5,811.
Contract No.4.  Pumping Station (estimated).  £32,000.
Contract No.5.  High Level Sewers in Back Gardens (estimated).  £28,000.
Total for Works alone.  £227,464.

Engineers Fees (these being on a lump sum basis and irrespective of the cost of scheme)  £4,500.
Clerk of Works, supervision etc.  £2,800.
Essessments etc. (estimated)  £1,236.
Total  £236,000.

Mr. Binnie’s estimate was made on the pre-war scheme and a certain amount of building has been done since that date for which it is necessary to provide sewers, also experience has shown that rather more ample provision should be made for storm water.
The cost of these additions is £21,000.  Deducting this sum therefore, the present estimated cost is £215,000, and Mr. Binnie’s estimate was £193,000.  In or opinion the actual cost may quite probably be several thousand pounds below that figure.  From these figures it appears that the last estimated cost was 10% below the present estimated cost.  Since the 1923 estimate there has been a rise in prices of quite 10%.  Allowing for this the last estimate seems to have been almost exactly right.
It must be remembered that work did not begin until 18 months after the estimate was made, and will not finish until 5 years after the estimate was made.  Briefly about 27 miles of sewers will be constructed, a large proportion in bad ground and in narrow congested streets, at an average cost of a little under £3 per yard, including manholes.  The overhead charges for post war plans, Quantity Fees, supervision and engineering superintendence and Clerk of Works came to only 2% on the cost of the ????????.
?????? think of these circumstances are considered the costs will bear ??? with any in England.
When considering the matter of estimates we think it only fair to mention that the Joint Board work shows a saving on the last estimate made before the work actually commenced.
Taking Chatham’s proportion of this cost in relation to their population it means that the cost of the Sewerage scheme to the Chatham ratepayers is likely to be 6% above the estimate in spite of a rise in prices during construction of quite 10%.  To this must be added £21,000 spent in providing for recent developments.
To date the work has been carried out in a substantial and successful manner, and we submit that these results are very gratifying.

The Secretary,
Ministry of Health,
Whitehall S.W.1.

Sir,

Internal sewers.

I have this morning received from the Engineers particulars enabling me to furnish revised estimate in respect of Contact No.2. and form K.29 is now sent herewith.

Plans C.1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 8, and 9 and C.40 to 53 inclusive are also sent.  The Engineers inform me that the present total estimate cost of the works in the light of the information now available is:-

Contract No.C.1.£74,958
Contract No.C.2.£86,695
Contract No.C.3.£5,811
High Level Contract (Estimated)£30,000
Pumping Station Contract (Estimated)£30,000
£227,464

The reasons for the excess over their original Estimates are stated by the Engineers to be as follows:-

The estimate of £86, 500 was made in 1916 and was based on their last Contract prices of 1914.  The revised estimate of £129, 333 was made in February 1919 before the rise in prices.  They had no contract prices to base that estimate on, and 50% was added to all prices in the 1916 Estimate.  Mr. Binnie (who was called in to advise in 1923) made an estimate on their scheme of £193, 000 in October, 1923.  On comparing their Contract prices of 1914 with the tender now accepted they find that excavation prices have risen 230%.  The Chatham separate work is nearly all excavation of small sewers.

The engineers say that in their opinion the excess over their estimate is solely due “to the tremendous increase in excavation prices”.

Chatham and Rochester Sewerage.

The two boroughs of Chatham and Rochester which at present are drained on the cesspool system, are now being sewered, under schemes approved by the Minister.  Loans amounting to approximately £230,000 for Chatham and £110,000 for Rochester have been sanctioned, and the works are in progress.
The sewage will be dealt with by the Rochester and Chatham Joint Sewerage Board, who have recently been authorised by the Minister to borrow sums amounting to approximately £240,000 for the construction of the necessary outfall sewer and disposal works.  This scheme is also in progress.
Grants are being made from public funds by the Unemployment Grants Committee towards the cost of the above schemes, Vis. 65% of the loan charges, i.e., interest and sinking fund for half the loan periods (15 years).
The scheme of sewerage for Chatham Borough provides for the reception therein of the sewage from so much of the Dockyard as is in Chatham.

Gentlemen,
CHATHAM INTERNAL SEWERS.
STORM WATER.

The storm overflows are arranged on the principle of an open channel, deep enough to pass up to six times, and all above six times, overflows the lip of the channel to storm water sewers.
The gravitation system has overflows at A. B. & C on plan
A.   Serves sewers Nos. 109 & 110 at J.B. MH.14. shown on plan C.2. and detailed on plan J.B.17.
B.   Serves sewers Nos. 75 & 14 at MH.99 on plan C.5. & detailed on plan C.32.
C.   Serves sewers No.1. at J.B. MH.9 and shown on plan C.3. & detailed on plan J.B.16.

The low level system will have overflows at D. E. F. G. & H on plan, and the height of all these overflows weirs is above the level 23.00 O.D.  Below this level all storm water which enters the sewers is to be pumped at the Pumping Station; 6 D.W.G’s to the Joint Board Main, and above 6 D.F.W’s to the River Medway.
A new 18” surface water sewer, taking place of an existing one, is proposed to be laid along the Brook, this will gravitate to the Medway usually, but at high tides will have to be pumped.
Chatham has several large existing storm sewers, which in times of heavy storm become surcharged, and flooding occurs.  We propose to relieve these sewers by overflows into our storm water system at J. K. L. M. N. A & B on plan; the lowest of these will be at 22.50 O.D.  This level allows all excess water which passes it, to reach the River Medway at its highest known tide of 15.00.
These storm water are collected at the storm tower at Pumping station (see plan M.55) and outfall from thence by a 54” diam: pipe proposed to be laid down Dark Lane with an outfall into the Medway at – 3.50.  This pipe will have a natural grade of 1 in 272, and a hydraulic grade (at highest known tide) of 1 in 300, and will discharge about 66 million gallons a day.

Your obediently,
W H Radford ???

Sir,
Chatham Internal Sewers

Adverting to your Department’s letter of the 13th June 1924, I am now in a position to deal with all the matters raised therein.  The Council having acquired the larger estate embracing the site for the pumping stations scheduled in the Provisional Order of 1914 have decided that the site of the pumping station should be altered and after consultation with the Council’s Engineer (Mr. Radford) it has been decided to utilise for that purpose the land which is colored pink on the plan sent herewith.  (Unfortunately there are no plans included in this file).
I understand that eight cottages will be affected when the site comes to be cleared for the erection of the pumping station, and the Council have acquired land at Holcombe Road Chatham which is regarded by the Council as particularly suitable for the accommodation of the displaced families.  Plans of these houses have been prepared by the Borough Surveyor.
Fourteen houses are proposed to be erected in all, on the land available.  The Borough Surveyor has already had discussions (on the 13th and 20th ultimo) with Major Lockhard and some other official (Architect) with regard to these plans and I understand from the Surveyor that the Minister has given his provisional approval to the plans as they now stand, and that formal approval to the plans so that the houses may qualify for assistance under the 1924 Housing Act, has been promised on two occasions but has not yet been received here.
The District Valuer has given his opinions on the apportionment of value of the land and his original letter of the 18th February 1925 and plan is sent herewith.  My Council has approved of the District Valuer’s apportionment.
My Council will be glad to hear that the Minister now approves of the site of the pumping station; the Council’s proposals with regard to the rehousing of persons to be displaced by the pumping station; and the District Valuer’s apportionment.

Sir,

Internal Sewage.

Mr corporation are now preparing to carry out the Scheme of internal sewers to operate in combination with the works of the Rochester and Chatham Joint Sewerage Board.  The Corporation Scheme was designed by Mr. W. H. Redford as the Corporation’s Engineer, and my Corporation are about to enter into an Agreement with Mr. Radford’s firm retaining them as Engineers for the Scheme.
The Rochester Corporation have, I understand, made other separate arrangements for carrying out the scheme of internal sewers in that City, designed by Mr. Radford.
I am directed by my Council to make application to the Ministry for the necessary Sanctions to the borrowing of the sum of £129,333 being the amount of Messrs Radfords Estimate on October 7th, 1919.
The Local Inquiry was held some several years ago, and the Schemes were generally approved by the old Local Government Board, but at that time the Council was instructed to apply for the consents of the Railway Company.  There have been sent to the Railway Company concerned, full plans and sections showing the works which will affect the Company, and the Company are now settling details.
The Corporation has applied to the Unemployment Grants Committee for assistance, in view of the distress in the locality, and they have been informed that their Scheme is approved for assistance during the continuation of ??? unemployment.
In the letter which is enclosed herewith, addressed by Messrs Radford and Son to the Ministry, and sent their desire, it is hardly correct on their part to state that they have been retained as Engineers to carry out my Corporation’s Scheme.  The terms of the Agreement between the corporation and the Engineers are now in course of settlement, and there is every probability that they will be retained.

I am, Sir,

Albion Chambers,
King Street,
NOTTINGHAM.
May 19th, 1924.

Dear Sirs,

ROCHESTER & CHATHAM JOINT SEWERAGE BOARD,
and
CHATHAM CORPORATION (INTERNAL SEWERAGE).

The above Authorities have retained our services as Engineers to carry out the schemes (excepting Rochester Internal Sewers) designed by W. H. Radford in 1916 and already submitted to the Local Government Board.
We enclose copies of the estimates of 1919, as revised after the loan Inquiry, amounting to £257,928 for the Joint Board; and £129,333 for Chatham Internal Sewers.  These are the latest estimates which have been laid before you.  It is no doubt correct, as stated by Mr. Binnie that a considerable increase has taken place in the cost of labour since those estimates were made, but on the other hand we hope to make numerous small savings in carrying out the works, and we therefore propose that the estimate of 1919 should stand until the are verified or otherwise by the actual tenders.
The Joint Board propose to let immediately the Contract for the execution of the tunnel sewer under Watling street, estimated to cost £74,118, according to the estimate of 1919; and to let a second Contract shortly for the remainder of the outfall sewer and syphons estimated to cost £66,221, as per the estimate of 1919.  These two Contracts would comprise the whole of the intercepting sewers, as revised to date.  With respect to the Disposal Works at Motley Hill the estimate of 1919 includes the filter beds and humus tanks (priced at £40,326) which will probably not be required, but when we have revised the drawings we will submit fresh proposals for your approval.
The Chatham Corporation propose to let immediately the contract for the gravitation sewers, estimated to cost £44,770, as per the estimate of 1919.  If there are any revisions of these works later we will submit revised plans when made.
It is hoped that the Joint Board will execute about £80,000 worth of work during the summer and ensuing winter.  The Chatham Corporation will also probably execute about £30,000 worth of work during the next 12 months.
With respect to the advisory Report of Oct. 8th, 1923, made by Mr. W J. E. Binnie, C.E., on our scheme.  We append a section and plans of the Joint Board intercepting sewers revised after considering the report.  You will see we propose to adopt Mr. Binnie’s advice to deepen the whole length of outfall, but we propose 5’ throughout, instead of 7’ at the top, and 4’ at the bottom end.  This lengthens the outfall by 200 feet to the benefit of Rochester; and it also enables Rochester to drain by gravitation about 125 more houses.  Mr. Binnie’s other detailed advice as to sewers is adopted where possible.  The siphon under the Railway is dispensed with; and the siphon under Luton Arch is duplicated.  The siphon at Motley is shown in section, as designed by us.  In consequence of the desire to economise the use of bricks to assist Housing developments, we have redesigned the cross section of the tunnel sewer mostly in concrete, and we think it will cost less than before.  The delivery is equal to that previously approved.  We do not propose to line the iron pipes with concrete partly because of the extra cost.  We see no reason why these alterations should affect the estimates, as they mainly balance each other.
