Kaiser versus RDEK Policing wanted on air emissions By MOLLY LATKA Herald News Service SPARWOOD Kaiser Re- sources Ltd. of Sparwood has made two major applications to the provincial pollution control branch covering air emissions. The Regional District of East Kootenay has made representa- tions on both applications. The RDEK objects to the proposed limits on Kaiser's ap- plications to cover emissions from the Michel boiler preparation plant and coke ovens. The RDEK suggests that an application should be made to cover emissions resulting from the charging and unloading of the coke ovens. In another letter to W. N. pollution control di- the RDEK asks for close policing of the limits for the above mentioned emissions and for the Elkview coal prep- aration plant. It feels the limits on the sev- eral emissions applied for are not being met at all times. The RDEK notes that the ap- plication on the four rotary kiln coal dryer for total par- ticulate emission averaging .4 grams per and not to ex- ceed .8 grams per would total pounds per day of particulate emission. The total is too high and will adversely affect the surround- ing says the RDEK objection. The RDEK says it discover- while investigating the ap- I that it was based on a single sampling of the va- rious with a judgment factor added. More reasonable probabilities should be it said. In its request for closer po- the RDEK asked that the pollution control board force zealously the conditions of the permits. limits set out on the permit applications are not generally objectionable but ex- cesses over the limits would In cities random observations by officers of the regional dis- trict noted heavy particu- late emissions from the bed dryer stacks at Elkview and the coke oven stacks at as well as windblown dust from coal and coke stacks at times. Only during the past few months have the regional dis- trict's objections to pollution control applications been rec- ognized by the provincial gov- ernment. The. RDEK uses a Calgary consulting firm to review appli- cations within its jurisdiction and decide whether an objec- tion should be filed. B.C. farmland freeze may mean more parks By NANCY MILES Special Correspondent CRANBROOK With Sept. 29 date effective for the pro- vincial farmland the city is cautious in its approval of the recent sitting here of the land commission which outlined objectives of prevent- ing potential farmland aliena- tion. Cranbrook had filed an ap- peal in May for exemption within city limits. Cranbrook is now three miles long and up to miles wide. Several large scattered par- cels of designated farmland are zoned as such for either functional or assessment pur- poses. Preliminary planning work on several of these was fairly advanced toward housing sub- divisions. One case involved a 28 acre highway frontage shopping centre with adjoining apartment townhouse com- plex. It was to be almost in the centre of Cranbrook. Under freeze regulations soils have been classified for farmland at 1 to 5. East Koo- tenay offers no top class but does have 2. 3 and 4 class land in all its electoral and some of its in- cluding Cranbrook. In its sitting here the land commission appears to favor interim compatible use for agricultural land toward broad- er use which does not perma- nently alienate it for particularly in high density population which ap- plies to Cranbrook. MEETS APPROVAL The commission proposal for interim farmland freeze in park reserves and green belts met with city particular- ly in areas into which the city plans to extend its limits again fairly soon. The Regional District of East Kootenay whose respon- sibilities are geographically larger and more plans to be more militant be- fore the final freeze. Its plan- ning department has already I mapped its entire area for mul- tiple-use and not toward the same objectives as the land freeze. It proposes to engage profes- sional land use consultants in Alberta toward preparing and mapping its proposals to the land commission at its next sit- ting. Then details will be work- ed out. RDEK administrator Frank Bertoia is urging as much pub- lic participation as possible in drawing up proposed ground rules for its presentation to the commission. This will be done through a late summer series of public meetings through the region. These will hear proposals and criticisms and with con- sultant at concrete rec- ommendation of mapping farmland in the public inter- est. This round of informational hearings will be followed by a round to hear objections to the resulting RDEK mapping from those directly concerned prior to the final submission to the commission.

S. Smith of the federal research station at Lethbridge warns Alberta farmers to be on the alert for grasshopper infes- tations in fall-seeded crops.
