Farmington Daily Times (Newspaper) - April 21, 1974, Farmington, New Mexico Muny court alcohol rehab program shows results editor i nou this article the firk i a five Imit min on the Prem fit Eiting of alcohol Ian and Amohd abut in san Juan Cotilde Ratoni now before fire Longton City official faced with combating the Grottem. Sybil Cetla Datty him stiff How effective is the firming on Mun Ideal court Reh Buiu tion program Murp and should the program be con unused at the Farmington aty Council draws up its proposed 1974-75 Lical budget for approval this june Many of those involved see talk Pii tion of Murp continuation a crucial in the attempt to find Means of controlling the problem of alcohol Ian in Farmington. Bated on a Simar program in Phoenix arix., to educate Kohol related traffic offenders on the danger of drinking and driving the Murp received its initial impetus in september 1170, through the initiative of san Juan episcopal Mitrion and atone May 1972, has been Joiny funded by the City and a private foundation on a two year trial bait. Private fund ii of the program ends april 30 of this year and the City hat already agreed to continue the program through june 30. To not going to tay the program at it it now is the Only pot Rible answer quot observed the Rev. Benjamin Ford of the san Juan episcopal Mission. Quot i Doni tank we Ever said that this was going to be the final answer. It s simply searching for clues in an enormously comp Lei problem. And doing this was a whole lot better than doing nothing. Murp coordinator Robert Parks has noted the program is involved in sii areas of assistance perhaps the most controversial of which consists of classes for those charged in Farmington municipal court with drive ii while intoxicated Dpi. Parks has st plied the Day with is claiming that better than 96 per cent of the 273 individuals in the 18 Dpi classes he has conducted to Date have not reappeared before Farmington municipal court on another Dpi Offee. Of the six that have four were navajos Parks said. Of the 478 individual care histories he has on file. Parks said 25 to 40 per cent of those people have either abstained Tolly or exerted some to tive control Over their imi bits. This do enl mean that theyse cured Parks cautioned. Quot maybe it Means they re ust keeping the Hal out of Farmington. But that s All right. I mean the official View should be an agreeable one to that situation. Farmington mayor Mariu a Webb questions Park s 25 to 40 per cent figures. Quot that s too wide a Range. I just Don t accept it. That s just guess of the 96 per cent of Dpi offenders not returning for the same offence Webb stated quot i Don t buy that figure the mayor wants to know How Many repeat Dpi offences there were before the Murp began and How the program results compare with Simar programs in other cities. Webb who was a councilman in december 1970, when the Day voted unanimously to accept the Murp on a Pilot basis stated he was not apposed to attempts to meet the problem of alcoholic abuse in Farmington. The mayor said he thought the program quot needs a Little More tightening and or. Parks needs to make a More definite report of the results of the program before i can consider continuing he said there was need for quot a lot More input from Parks himself quot to show Day of dals the effectiveness of the program. City manager Cia. Woodbury when asked his opinion cautiously observed quot my position As a Day manager is i Don t have an opinion. It would be the Day Cound s decision because Prin Pauy my Job is to carry out their directives and Webb questioned whether the Day should fund a program which was being used by out de City agencies and referred specifically to the Dpi classes in which he said it was quot my understanding that there have been More people enrolled from outside the program has been costing approximately $21,000 yearly $12,000 of which has been provided each year from the private Anonymous foundation. Webb said the Day had investigated possible binding from the . Commission on alcoholism but those funds quot had too Many strings attached quot would take away too much local control and required evidence that the City was prepared to pick up funding requirements in future years. The mayor noted the Day was unable to get any assistance from the Navajo tribe. They have the biggest percentage enrolment Parks records show Only 44 per cent Indian enrol nent in the Dpi Webb also noted the need for Mun Ideal judge Roy Marcum to evaluate the Murp. Marcum said he has not had enough time since his recent election to decide if the Murp is effective. Quot i m going to at least try to give it a Chance to work quot he said but add there was a question in his mind How effective such classes Are for persons forced by court order to attend against their will.

Salt Content Cut vital to nip Santa be. a state Engineer Steve Reynolds Days the future of some big Sirol Pomenta in new Mexico could be affected by How the United states meet an obligation to Cut the Salt in the Colorado River where it enters Mexico. Quot As a practical matter any uncertainties with respect to the ultimate solution to the meter National problem leaves uncertainty As to full develop tent of the water new Mexico is entitled to under the two Colorado River of Reynolds said. A solution diverting More Colorado River water to Mexico could bring quot pm pediments quot to contracts for the use of Colorado River water in the Navajo irrigation project tributary irrigation units of the san Juan Chama and the Animas la Plata project he said the first 10,000 acres of a total 110,000 acres reclaimed in the Navajo project will get water in 1976, he noted. Navajo water also is being allocated to the proposed $1.8 billion Complex of Coal Gasi fiction plants m new Mexico s san Juan Basin. Other Navajo water is set aside for expansion of the san Juan Power Plant near Farmington. The diversion Tunnel at the san Juan Chama project bringing water from Colorado to new Mexico near Chan is Complete. But Reynolds noted some new Mexico irrigation projects made possible by water added to the Rio Grande by then Jet have not yet begun. And the Animas la Plata project to souths Colorado which would provide 34,000 acre feet of water a year for new Mexico consumption is still on the drawing boards. "1 want to make sure you Don t get the notion if we Don t setup with Mexico those things Are dead. Reynolds said. Quot but there is some risk in projects that Are not Complete quot it August president Nixon signed an agreement with Mexico to guarantee a unix mum Salt Content of the cok it Rado River at the International Border. The Salt Content is nearly doubled by drainage from the Wellton Mohawk irrigation in Southwest Arizona. This water is being diverted around an irrigation project in Mexico and the unit states is obligated to replace or dealt it. The Wellton Mohawk Drain water represents about 220,000 acre feet of the total 1.5 million acre feet the United states must deliver to Mexico each year under a 1942 treaty. Nixon proposed the United states build a $116 million desalting Plant for the Wellton Mohawk water. This technical solution was Derek it Ped by the Federal office of Saline water beginning in 196445 when its director was Frank Diluzio now chief aide to gov. Bruce King. said the Proem forces brackish water through chemical membranes backed by porcelain Tuters. He said of the dozens of desalting a methods studied by the office including a distillation Plant at Roswell the membrane is quot the Only technical answer quot for water with less than half the Salt of sea water. He said it s expensive at 35-40 cents per 1.000 Gallons. If we had no political obligation we d never do it for economic reasons Diluzio said. The seven states in the Colorado Basin have stopped the administration Bill and pushed an alternative with a proposed Cost of $262.2 million.
