PROVIDING FOR THE RELINQUISHMENT OF AN EASEMENT GRANTED TO THE UNITED STATES BY THE GREEN BAY & MISSISSIPPI CANAL CO.

May 12, 1937.-Committed to the Committee of the Whole House on the state

of the Union and ordered to be printed

Mr. LANHAM, from the Committee on Public Buildings and Grounds,

submitted the following

REPORT

[To accompany H. R. 5552]

The Committee on Public Buildings and Grounds, to whom was referred the bill (H. R. 5552) to provide for the relinquishment of an easement granted to the United States by the Green Bay & Mississippi Canal Co., having had the same under consideration, report it back to the House with the recommendation that the bill do pass.

The following letter from the Acting Secretary of the Treasury explains the purposes of the bill:

TREASURY DEPARTMENT,

Washington, April 3, 1997. Hon. FRITZ G. LANHAM, Chairman, Committee on Public Buildings and Grounds,

House of Representatives. DEAR MR. CHAIRMAN: Reference is made to your letter dated March 19, 1937, to this Department, requesting a report on bill H. R. 5552, to provide for the relinquishment of an easement granted to the United States by the Green Bay & Mississippi Canal Co., in connection with the Kaukauna, Wis., post-office site, 88 well as to your similar request of the same date to the Secretary of the Interior, which has also been referred to him by the Treasury Department.

The Green Bay & Mississippi Canal Co. under date of April 24, 1935, granted to the United States an easement for construction, maintenance, and replacement of a sewer or drain from the southeasterly side of the post-office site at Kaukauna, Wis., in a southeastwardly direction across lots 4 to 14, inclusive, in block 2, a distance of approximately 550 feet to the northwesterly side of an open sewer.

It later developed that the city of Kaukauna planned to construct a sanitary sewer system so as to permit connection to be made thereto from the post-office building. It became unnecessary for the United States to make use of the aforesaid easement for construction and maintenance of sewer from the southeasterly side of the site to the open sewerage ditch. However, in order to dispose of storm water from the post-office site, it was necessary for the Government to construct & private storm-water sewer over land owned by the Green Bay & Mississippi Canal Co. to discharge into a tailrace approximately 170 feet northeastwardly from the northeasterly side of the post-office site.

The Treasury Department under date of April 29, 1936, requested the Green Bay & Mississippi Canal Co. to grant to the United States an easement in perpetuity to construct and maintain an 8-inch terra cotta storm-water drain through the old filled-in flume at the rear or south end of the site in a northeasterwardly direction a distance of approximately 170 feet to discharge into the tailrace, which easement was executed on May 21, 1936, and returned to this Department properly endorsed showing recordation in the local land records.

The Green Bay & Mississippi Canal Co. granted this easement to the United States with the understanding that the sanitary-sewer easement previously granted would be released to the Canal Co. when appropriate legislative authority therefor was obtained from Congress.

This Department recommends the passage of the aforesaid bill. The enactment of the legislation proposed by the aforesaid bill is not in conflict with the program of the President. Very truly yours,

WAYNE C. TAYLOR, Acting Secretary of the Treasury O
