City holds line on sewage bylaw The city manager's recom- mendation that standards not Ire relaxed and effective dates not be extended for the sewage service charge bylaw was ap- proved by council Monday. The matter was brought lo council's attention through a letter from Canada Packers Ltd. requesting exemption from fines assessed under the bylaw, until April. The bylaw becomes effective Jan. 1 and provides for fines of up to a day to be charged against a company which sends more than 450 parts of grease per million of water through the sewer lines. The letter from Canada Packers staled it is in the pro- cess of installing sewage abate- ment devices but cannot com- plete the work until at least April tlirough no fault of the company. City Manager Tom Nutting, in making his recommendation, said there is "no other way the industries will continue with construction of their sewage abatement devices" than to have the threat of lioavy fines hanging over them. He said the bylaw will have "no meaning whatever in 1972 if the effective dates are not upheld." Canada Packers Is "one of (lie worst polluters." he said, but has taken definite action to clean up its sewage disjwsal. He added the other meat packing plants are also exceed- ing the standards specified in the bylaw but have not in- dicated a move to construct primary sewage treatment fa- cilities in their plants.
