Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 12, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE lETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, August 17, 1971 Study of Oldman nears completion By RICHARD BURKE Staff Writer Twenty-one local high school and college studcnls are near- ing completion of a studv to de- termme man's physical and chemical effects on the Old- man River. The project, which was ini- tiated with a federal grant, is part of the Opportuni- ties for Youth Program and covers approximately 170 miles of the Oldman PJvcr from 40 miles northwest of Coleman tn a point five miles north of Grassy Lake where the Old- man meets the South Saskatch- ewan River. The students began taking samples of the river water June 9 to idialyze it for the presence of phosphates, fluorides, nitrogen, oxygen, al- gae, cloudiness and smell. The last sample will lie taken Aug. 13 at which time the stu- dents will draw their conclu- sions from the sample analysis and prepare to publish a repo1 in terms the general public can understand. Dave Balfour, who supervises the project with Gary Lawrence, expects the re- port to be completed by Sept. 15. Ealfour emphasizes that the study is not "la gel at pol- but to determine what is in the river and to make the information available to the public. The samples have shown the river to be high in dissolved oxygen, necessary for fish lo survive, and low the acknowledged pollutants such as phosphates and industrial wastes, he said. However, he said towns along the river tend to mini- majly treat their sewage and expect the river to complete the decomposition. Consequent- ly, the group has found a per- ceptible increase in murky wa- ter near Lethbridge and Pic- lure Butte where the sewage is dumped.

Plans are being made for a petition asking for a plebiscite to be held with the election. Dr. L. C. Mathesen, dental officer with the Lethbridge health unit, said he hoped lo have the petition placed in den- tists' offices by the end of the week. It would be available for signing by anyone wanting a fluoridation plebiscite. While (he Lethbridge and District Dental Society is not iocal dentists there should be no trouble in obtaining enough signatures for the petition. The Municipal Government Act sets out no percentage of electors that must sign a peli- tion in order to force a iscite on fluoridation. A petition simply gives city gives city council an indication of public sentiment. It is then up lo council to decide whether to include the plebiscite iu the civic election.
