An accountant at the Bank of Commerce said there was roughly a foot and a half of water in the bank's base- ment, but no esitmate of damage had been made as staff was unable to get into the basement until the water went down. A spokesman at the Royal Bank said there were three inches of water in the bank's storage vault and some de- posit records and correspond- ence may have been damag- ed beyond recovery. He said it was the third time in 18 months that the bank's basement has been flooded. Water damage at the Mar- quis was reported as neg- ligible. City public works engineer Barry Temple said this morning the break was diffi- cult to find as water from the leak was not surfacing, but running away in storm and sanitary sewers.

Phone 327-3276 Limits on industry avored at Coleman land use hearing By DAVID ELY Herald Staff Writer COLEMAN Intense in- terest in future land develop- mcnt along the eastern slope of the Rooky Mountains was displayed at a public hearing conducted by the Alberta En- vironment Conservation Au- thority here Monday. Convened to gather public opinion on land use and re- source development for the eastern slope, the Coleman hearing is the first in a series to be held during the next five weeks at various loca- tions in the province. Hearings are scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday in Lethbridge at the Yates Me- morial Theatre. Ths Coleman hearing dealt with the Oldman River Basin and specifically development in the Crowsnest Pass area. The Lethbridge hearings will deal further with the Oldman Kiver Basin. Nearly 30 briefs from oil and mining corporations, conservation groups and Pass residents are before the hearing panel which met in th; Crowsnest Consolidated High School auditorium. The EGA heard briefs late into the night and continued the hearing this morning. The majority of those pre- senting briefs favored re- stricting or prohibiting com- mercial and industrial devel- opment of eastern slope lands. Dick Pharis of the Alberta Wilderness Association stat- ed that multiple use of the land does not have- to mean every possible use for every square mile of land in the area. He said there are cer- tain areas along the eastern slopes whose attributes as wilderness far outweigh oth- er possible uses. Dr. Pharis said his group advocates the setting aside of nine tracts of land along the eastern slope as wilderness areas with access limited cnly to those on foot or horseback. He dealt specifically with three areas in the southern part of the province South Castle, about 100 square miles bordering on Waterton Lakes National Park, Upper Old Man, about 100 square miles, and North Porcupine, about 47 square miles. The conservationist said the land his group wants set aside as wilderness area comprises only a small por- tion of the total land in the region. Hiking, fishing and regulated big game hunting would be activities compati- ble with the environment of the area. He added trapping end outfitting could be two compatible in d u s t ries in these locations. L. T. Kyllo of the western Conservation F o u n which consists of four con- servation groups including the Alberta Wilderness Asso- ciation reiterated several points made by Dr. Pharis BERGMAN'S FLOOR COVERINGS Custom Installations Ph. 328-0372 2716 12 Ave. S. and expressed concern that public lands remain under public control. Recreational development, he said, should be carefully regulated and must be inte- grated with the natural and social aspects of the area. William Midialsky, a Lundbreck rancher and out- fitter, emphasized the impor- tance of the eastern slope as watershed and said the bur- den on the watershed must be lightened rather than in- creased. Mr. Michalsky, who said he has travailed the Rockies for many years, said develop- ment of the KananasMs Highway will lead to heavy recreation use and further environmental damage. He advocated the prohibition of further development in pub- lic lands. Brian Reeves, an Alberta srcheologist, commented on what he called "heritage re- important histor- ical Euro Canadian sites as well as geological his- torical sites. Such sites, hs said, are ex- tremely fragile and easily destroyed. If not protected these significant areas will be obliterated within the next 25 years, he claims. David H. Sheppard, an ecologist from the Beaver Mines area, labelled the the building of hydroelectric dams and strip mining as the two activities which cause the most environmental de- siruction. "I hope the day of dam building on the eastern slope is he said. He said it is impossible to reclaim sites of strip mining, and said it is senseless to mine this way, especially since the coal, not needed in Canada, is exported. "We're selling the moun- tains to Japan so they can manufacture things to sell back to he said. Dr. Shsppard also slam- med the clear cutting meth- od of harvesting lumber, claiming it leads to severe erosion of the watershe3. Ted Nicholson, of the Old- man River Regional Plan- ning Commission, said that development along the east- ern slope has traditionally been reactionary. Th.3 ideal concept, he said, includes clearly defined goals and orderly planning. The Crowsnest Pass area, Mr. Nicholson said, has the most immediate and acute problems of the whole east- ern slope, due mainly to ex- tensive mining and lumber- ing activities. A proposed provincial park in the Pass area was explain- ed by James R. Kerr, Cole- man. who represented people behind the park idea. "Our purpose is to make Crowsnest Pass a destination rather than a service be told the three members of the EGA. The park would be set aside for recreation pur- poses only, but allowances would be made for commer- cial development adjacent to the park area. Some aspects of the area which make it ideal for a park, Mr. Kerr said, were the tremendous c a v e r ns there, the diversity of wild- life and the fact that pur- chase of land would b3 mini- mal since much of the land is already publicly owned. Some of the problems re- ported by those presenting briefs included extensive use of the area by all terrain vehicles and four wheel drive vehicles, especially on seismic lines, rough roads cut for mineral exploration. Drain defends mining COLEMAN The Social Credit MLA for Pincher- Crowsnest led several groups and firms in defending ex- traction of minerals from the 'Pass area. Charles Drain told the first day of the hearings here that "coal mining is the lifeline of the Crowsnest region and will be in the foreseeable future.'' He said supplies of strip- psble coal are meager and that the emphasis is now on underground mining. R. Donald Livingstone, gen- eral manager of Lethbridge C'olleries, presented a brief on behalf of CanPac Miner- als Lid. and explained pro- posed strip mining of coal by that corporation. The area he discussed is along Isolation Ridge in the north part of the Oldman basin. Great care has been taken by CanPac, he said, to reclaim all land disturbed by explor- ation. The mining area, Mr. Liv- ingstone explained, will be re- claimed after mining is com- pleted, and environmental safeguards will be used dur- ing mining and processing cperations to ensure that the area will not suffer from air and water pollution. Benefits to be realized from extraction of coal in the area, ha said, include the cre- ation of 450 new jobs at the site, new jobs in the rest of Canada, a substantial con- tribution to federal, provin- cial and local tax bases and an improvement in Canada's balance of payments about million a year. George Barnes, spaaking for the Alberta members of the Coal Association of Can- ada, claimed that expansion of coal mining in the eastern slope area is an acceptable and desirable land use and is compatible with other uses of the area. "Land reclamation forms an integral part of pre-plan- ning in any modern operation and will be carrisd Mr. Barnes said. He said it is perfectly feasible to create lakes following mining, en- hancing the recreational as- pects of the area and inhibit- ing rapid spring runoff. Mr. Barnes said the mining of bituminous coal deposits in Alberta's mountains and foot- hills is "imperative, not only for their economic value, but perhaps of greater import- ance, to conserve natural gas." Arnold Gorveatt of the Can- adian Petroleum Associa- tion said that the eastern slope contains large potential oil and gas reserves. and produc- tion of oil and natural gas can be carried on campatibly with ether uses of land in the he stated. the LODGE MOTEL 329-0100 Certified Dental Mechanic JCLIFF BUCK, JBLACK DENTAL lABf MEDICAL DENTAL BLDG. lower level PHONE 327-2822 Heady to AIR CONDITION NOW with the ROUND ONE Carrier ALCON REFRIGERATION LTD.
