The wcrk of building new sewers has been confined chiefly lo the
northern part of the borough, as it has been for some years past. In
ihat portion of this eiEy. say, south of 155lh st, the system is sub¬
stantially finished, allhcugh th«re are a few streets here and there
which are still unprovided with public sewers. In such cases it is gen¬
erally found that the buildings use privaie drains, cannecting to public
sewers in adJLining slreets. In many cases it is found tbat these
drains are located in the rear of dwellings and pass under adjoining
hLuses. Sucb methods of drainage are condemned as unsatisfactory,

through streets yet to be opened, belore any drainage works can be
Two important outlets have been built, carrying sewage into deep
water, where the measure of dilution is so great that no nuisance arises
therefrom. These are Iccated ai 82d st and Harlem River and 72d st
and Hudson River, and drain large areas.
In the territory north o£ Dyckman st, the streets where outfall sewers
are lo be built, which will carry the drainage of nearly this whole terri¬
tory, viz., 211th and 211ilh sts, from Broadway to Harlem River, have
been legally cpent^d, tbat is lo say, the report of the Commission ap¬
pointed to condemn these lands was conflrmed by the Court on De¬
cember 4 last, but an appeal was laken, wbich has delayed the work.
The qufstion cf an outlet sewer at Fort George has also been revived.
For this purpose land must be acquired between Fort George avenue
