Annual Reports for the City of Montpelier detail expenses and locations for many sewer projects undertaken by the Works Progress Administration (WPA) in the city.
The 1936 report details work undertaken in 1935: “75 feet of 1 1/2″ pipe beyond the Murray Farm and 1353 feet of 4″ pipe on Main Street increased to 6″ pipe which including that which was relaid last year extends 6″ pipe to the Calvin Murray farm, these were made as W.P.A. Projects. The work has made more water available with better pressure in case of fire.”
1937 report: “New extensions were made as follows as W.P.A. work: 790 feet of 6-inch main and 622 feet of 4-inch main to Grand View Terrace.”
