However, expansion of the prcs- nt system of sewer treatment, has brought more than liliion in law suits against Ihe ily, would require 5.600 acres of rrigalion land by 1969. more than iree times the size of the pres- nt operation, Nichols said. Previous Reports Marvin Nichols, an official for he engineering firm, said that the omplcte study of previous reports nd present conditions indicate nal a treatment plant of the ac- ivaled sludge type would be "the nost effective method for the ily." Principal advantages of Ihe ac- ivated sludge treatment facilities I'cre listed as (he exceptionally iigh grade of effluent producec >y (he plant and Ihe cost of con ;lruction and operation as com lared wilh other suitable systems In answer lo a question by Dick lenlcy, Bob Nichols said (he cos of operation could be reduced b; he possible sale of effluent to ii dustrial or irrigation firms.

"The decrease in the BOD (biochemi- cal oxygen demand) of the rasv sewage received at Ihe plant makes il possible to design a plant which would be more effective and al the same time be consid- erably less costly than under the previously excessive BQD Bob Nichols poinled out. Earlier recommendations by Ihe engineering firm had favored (he use of trickling fillers to Ihe ac (ivalcd sludge syslem because of Ihe excessive BOD count, hut be- cause of the industrial waste or- dinance n change was nnclc in the recommendations, Nichols added. Handle Increase In answer to 'a question by George Kacrwer, city commission candidate, Nichols said that in case of added industry which might increase the average BOD count, lhat (he proposed syslem could be designed lo handle the increase "with the cooperation of any additional Industries."
