Elpaso and san measure lets the customer on City Bond Issue mayor plugs water sewer editors note this is the first of a series of articles written by mayor t. J. Vandergriff explaining Ais. News pm the Bond Issue on which voters will decide february 8. The series is written at the request of the news but does not necessarily represent the opinions of the new s. The news asked the mayor to contribute this series because its editors feel that he can Well explain on the Bond Issue Between now and february 8. By t. J. Vandergriff slightly Over three years ago the people of Arlington approved a six million Dollar improvement program. The construction phase of that program is nearing completion. Our Lake perhaps one on the very few outstanding developments in local history is a reality. A modern disposal Plant has been built. A million Dollar Street improvement program has at least started us in the right direction in that respect. As we near the Home stretch of that Bond program however we cannot afford to dwell upon past accomplishments or activity. We must think of the future because As it has been so wisely said Quot that is where we Are going to spend lie rest of our with that View in mind the City Council has presented for your study and consideration a new $3,975,000 program which if adopted will allow us to continue improvements on a massive scale. We consider it imperative that these activities begin this summer in order to take advantage of Best construction conditions and it is for that reason the election has been called for this time. This newspaper has been kind enough to allow us space in which to discuss the various issues. We Trust that our comments although necessarily Brief will be of some Benefit in better informing you concerning the program. Water $825,000 major additions to our Lake Arlington water Plant Are necessary. At present the capacity of our filtration Plant is four million Gallons per Day. By the summer of 1959 we must double this capacity. The water is there we Are confident the unpleasant taste of last year will be removed and we will require the additional water to augment our diminishing Well Supply by the a fore mentioned Date at the very latest. Then too. We must add two million Gallons of storage capacity at the Lake for Peak demands As Well As to in Rease our pumping units in order to be in opes Ilion to Load our transmission line to capacity. Other major proposals included in the water expansion program Are a million gallon elevated storage tank in the North Section of Arlington at a site to he determined by proper engineering and major water distribution lines in and about the Community. The latter activity contemplates a sixteen Inch line Loop around the perimeter of our City in Only this manner can adequate water pressure be assured for All Points. Sewer $425,000 when proposed in the 1954 Bond Issue our new disposal Plant was designed to accommodate a 35,000 population. Before construction the Inadequacy was obvious so we increased its size to serve 50,000 people. In 1958 we will very Likely reach or approach this level we must then expand our Plant hardly before it is completed. Such is the history of Arlington. Fortunately the facility is so designed that it can be sex panties to serve 75,000 people at a minimum of Cost. We think such an increase in capacity is warranted now and certainly will be essential during the life of this three year program. Also we must relocate and enlarge our Southeast sewage lift station near Watson Road. Without so vast reaches of Southeast Arlington cannot be served or if served now May become the victims of badly overloaded lines. Then too we must construct Many needed sewage interceptors in various sections Ai the Community to relieve dangerously demanding loads upon present capacities. One thing to remember about both the water and sewer Bonds is that they will be retired out of the earnings of the water department which will he sufficient to serve that purpose. It is not necessary to pledge any tax resources Tow re this end. In coming issues we will discuss other phases of the program which is to be voted upon february 8. S
