REPORT OF CHIEF ENGINEER

HERMANX 1. Biggs, M.D., State Commissioner of Health,

Albany, N. Y..

DEAR SIR.--I have the honor to submit herewith the annual report of the Division of Sanitary Engineering for 1917.

The volume of work performed by this Division has been increasing from year to year since the organization of the Division in 1906 and the work carried on during 1917 was not only greater in amount than during any preceding year but more extensive in scope. New lines of work, particularly with reference to the investigation of the sanitary condition of construction and operation of milk pasteurizing plants and the inspection of sanitation at military camps, aviation fields and naval bases within the State have been added to the routine and special work usually performed by this Division. To meet these increments in the routine and special work the engineering force has been increased during 1917 by the addition of one assistant engineer, one engineering draftsman and three inspectors.

A numerical summary of the more important matters which have been disposed of by the Engineering Division during the year 1917 appears in the following table for comparison with the corresponding figures for 1916, the summary for that year being also given:
