57 FAULTY DAMS IN 1914
Annual Beport of Commission Shows
That Communities Are Well Sup
plied—lnstall Twenty Steam Gaug
ing Stations During the Year
The actions of the State Water Sup
iply Commission in 1914 arc shown in
its report for that year, briefly classi
fied: Four water companies were in
corporated, one . merger was approved,
and no water power charters were
granted. The Commission thinks that
the small number of water companies
is due to the fact that communities arc
well supplied. Permits were issued for
the construction of 4 8 dams and the
modification of 22 others. There are
approximately 400 important dams in
this State, of which 293 were exam
ined during the year and 57 were found
deficient in some detail.
More applications for encroachments
on streams were received during the
year than for seven years previous, Dfil
permits being issued, all of which cov
ered work sanctioned by law, and the
Commission invites protests from those
who have reason to believe that the en
croachments are not being carried out
according to law.
During the year twenty stream gaug
ing stations were established, making
107 in all. The flood warning service
has proved its value by timely and
accurate warnings and will be contin

be directed to determine and lay out,

should also be passt -1 for :lie removal
of such existing encroachments that
extend beyond the danger line, as they
are a menace to life and property in
time of floods.
