The act came into ef- fect April 1. It provides for a penalty of not more than or 90 days in jail for contraven- tion of the act. Norman Thompson, director of water resourcss at Leth- bridge, has begun an investiga- tion into alleged spraying south- east of Claresholm. Bill Willows, wildlife officer here, says the department in Lethbridge has received com- plaints from sportsmen of brush spraying on Burk Creek on properly occupied by Dr. (Jordon Burton, Claresbplm rancher. Biologists and research peo- ple will investigate as soon as possible, he said, to determine if any substances have been put in the water that may cause damage to marine life. WON'T DRINK IT Orin Hart, district fanner, asked for a comment, said: "I wouldn't want to drink the wa- ter after it was sprayed. It's pretty dangerous chemical from what I hear. We don't need so many willows but we can use the grass. If they keep on taxing us we've got to make the land produce." Dave Jantzie, district agri- culturalist for the Willow Crsek district, said as far as he knew 1-4-5-T chemical was not used in the spraying. It was done to control willows. He said he had spoken the man who had applied the herbi- cide and he had told him only 2-4-D had been used. It's heart- ening to know that the more dangerous 2-4-5-T bad not been used) he said. Reeve of the MD of Willow ?reek, George Whitehead, said is wouldn't mate a statement on the spraying. He did say people should comply with pro- vincial regulations. Another farmer suggested h a fc some day the ranchers vill have to plant irees 8Jid willows as shelter fof cattle and he thought some irerej !oing "a little oi'erboard" in! aking out ths brush.
