Coppock thinks it may he wise to consider building a second water treatment plant and well field south of town. It's not the amount of water- needed, hut the location of the need, thai influences his thinking. As far as capacity is concerned, the present plant on Shaver road NE should he good enough for many years. It has a capacity iif :i6 million gallons daily; the most ever pumped was 27.HO million gallons one1 day in September. 1971. BUT HAVING adequate water available isn't the same thing as having it where it is needed. To get the water to the southwest quadrant will require more water mains and booster sta- tions. Mike Deupreo A 16-inch main to the Wilson booster station was tied into tin- water system in February and is now handling about four million gallons daily. Only a lit- tle of that is for residem-es, the rest for industry. Industrial uses account for more than half the water pumped in Cedar Rapids as a whole, and the proportion oi in dustrial use in the southwest quadrant Is even higher. "We have some users down there that draw approximately two million gallons a day." Coppock said, lie added that the future holds more of the same type of expansion, with the bulk of industry settling in the southwest. "The mains are going to have to come back almost to the plant to gel the necessary he said. The additional mains wouldn't be necessary if a second water works were built. But wouldn't a second plant cost a lot to build? "Well, you talk about feede mains through the downtow area, and you're talking about lot of money, Coppoc said. Besides, he added, instead o putting the money into feede Bicentennial Gift: Sound, Light on Washington WASHINGTON An histor- ical vignette in sound and light will enhance the aura surrounding George Wash- ington's home al Mount Vernon. starting in 1976.

The gift from France is the first major foreign Bicentenni- al project to be announced, which is considered appropri- ate in view of France's role in the American struggle for Independence. In a letter to President Nixon offering the gift, French President Valery discard d'Estaing wrote: "The forthcoming celebra- tion of the Bicentennial of the U.S. stirs in France a popular and loud echo The friendship which links our two peoples and which has been sustained and strengthened by so many ordeals we have been through side by side originated on the land and sea battlefields of the War of Independence."
