Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 9, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Fraser River muck troubles planners VANCOUVER (CP) The North Ann of the mighty Fra- ser, mucked by sewer out- falls, fouled by the industries along its shores and full of floating debris, will be called upon to meet growing recrea- tional demands, says planning consultant Norman Pearson. "While port and industrial development is both imminent and important, so too are the many other roles of the Mr. Pearson says in a .report entitled the Fraser River Harbor Development Study. "It is an estuary teeming with life, it is a drainage sys- tem, easily misused, it is the world's largest salmon fish- ery. "It will be called upon to accommodate growing recrea- tional demands. It is part of an urban environment, Sun- day drives and fishing bars. All of these demands are viable and reasonable and each should be accommodated in balance, without detriment to the others." The population of the mstro- politan area around the Fra- ser River's North Arm is ex- pected to double to more than two million before the end of the century and provision for social as well as economic uses of the river must be made, he says. Close to city Vancouver Mayor Art Phil- lips said in an interview that, as population in the metropoli- tan area grows, it will become increasingly important to pro- vide recreational i pportuni- ties as close to the population centres as possible. "The idea of having to drive many, many miles to get to your recreation areas does not make sense." Officials in nearby Burnaby also feel that part of the North Arm should-be oper.ed to the public but that other parts should be preserved for industry. Currently the tangle of in- dustry, the sawmills, sawdust burners, the hammering of shipyards and the filth of in- dustrial garbage and pollution discourage most people from banging around the riverside. Planner Ron Youngberg says the municipalities, whose inadequate sewage systems often dump raw sewage into the river, must take some of the blame. Garbage plenlful Garbage and floating debris litter the shore in Vancouver and Burnaby and in some places it is evident that the river's edge has been used as a dump for material hauled from demolished buildings. Large areas of the lowlands have been used as dumps for various kinds of garbage. The landscape is brightened by a number of farms growing vegetables in the rich, black soil. Mayor Phillips says Van- couver should follow the lead taken by Burnaby and Rich- mond and rezone to residen- tial-agricultural use the indus- River debris A derelict boat lies abandoned on the shore of the Fraser River near Vancouver. Debris arid industrial.waste is giving concern to city who believe increasing pressure will be exerted on fhe rivmr as recrea- tion area.
