Tutwtey 18, THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 17 Sewage disposal plan RDEK land reserve begun at Cranbrook CRANBROOK (Special) City council has begun preliminary discussions on a new million sewage effluent disposal system. Its permit for the present disposal system expires at the end of next year. This permit covers primary treatment and some secon- dary treatment in aerated lagoons prior to disposal in Joseph Creek which flows into the St. Marys River. With many decisions to be made prior to the first draft of the system, the borrowing bylaw may be several months at least in preparation. The bylaw amount would cover two additional main northbound trunk lines to the lagoons. One of these would be at the west city limits and would serve El Camino and the new Lake Road development, Cobham and Slaterville. The second would be along the present east city limits, north from 2nd St. N. The city's million Joseph Creek water improve- ment project is proceeding and bills on a bi monthly basis have been mailed. The utility should -be fully operational late this year.

Land Commission, says the RDEK board, g After receiving the B.C. Land Commission's proposed agricultural land reserve maps covering the Kootenay, professional planner Eugene Lee said "the S commission's proposal has totally ignored the basic w concepts and guidelines of the regional district's "land reserve plan." The commission's maps have been return- ed as unacceptable. He says, and is backed by the board, that the land com- S mission proposal designates only one agriculture. "The land commission has included class one to four x soils, plus a very large portion of class five and six soils for agriculture into its proposed agricultural land says Mr. Lee. "It is the feeling of the regional board that more people will be affected by the land com- mission's proposal than the provincial government's current farm land freeze." In a prepared news release, the RDEK says it "rejects in total the B.C. Land Commission's proposal as being totally inadequate to provide our .people with good land g and resource use planning."
