The State Board of Health of Massachusetts, under legislative act of 1893, was authorized and directed to investigate, consider and report upon the question of water supply for the city of Boston and its suburbs within a radius of ten miles from the State House, and for such other cities and towns as in its opinion should be included in connection therewith.
