Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 13, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, June 13, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 19 Engineer recommends against reservoir for Cardston By CATHERINE HULL CARDSTON (HNS) Cardston town council has received a letter from D. R. Low, engineer with the Strong, Lamb and Nelson firm of Calgary in regard to the Alberta Government report on Lee Creek flooding and the Cardston water supply. The letter stated that because of the research that had gone into the preparation of the document, it was worth at least to the town. He felt that while the department of the environment was very thorough in its recommendations of procedures of flood control, the alternatives for water supply were very preliminary in nature. He concurred with the following items of the report: A large storage reservoir for flood control, raw water storage and recreation, is not recommended. An intake structure must be constructed very soon as the existing structure is not adequate. The report was fairly vague as to where this should be located. Water use control measures and leakage detection measures should be intensified. Additional sources of water in the amount of 100 gallons per minute or supplementary storage is required to handle the peak loads required for the system. Treatment or filtration should be conditioned upon the future demand on the system after the leakage has been reduced to a reasonable minimum. The diversion weir fin-take) is proposed in two locations at the existing town dam site and approximately one-half mile west. He commented that the advantage of the first site is that the existing 14-inch supply main can be used without further line extension. Mr. Low stated that there are two advantages to the second location. It will give more storage. It will allow gravity flow to the existing upper 10 million gallon reservoir at the treatment plant site. However, it also involves an additional one-half mile of 14-inch supply main, He suggested that the alternates should be carefully considered and evaluated as to cost and suitability for the system before a decision is made on the final location. The 10-inch feeder main into the town is suspected of heavy leaks and consideration must be given to either abandoning this line if the leaks are general, or repairing it if the leaks are concentrated in one or two places. The report went on to say that if the town decided to institute an intensified program of leak detection, they would .recommend the use of geophones. There are two waterworks people in Calgary who. on weekends, make their services available to towns for special leakage problems. Council moved that this be done. The Herald District Warner County decides to back sub-division WARNER (Staff) Warner County councillor Murray Holt of Raymond this week contradicted advice on a proposed subdivision sought for a rural residence by Gerard Plettell of Lethbridge.

Council learned three university students are sampling section 12 in every township in the county for weeds, presumably, for the department of agriculture.

Don Christensen of Stirling this week prompted the Warner County council to advise officials redrafting a land surface conservation and reclamation act that old railway roadbeds should be reclaimed. Coun. Christensen said: "One thing that hasn't been done in the past is see that old rail grades are put back in their original state. These should be' bulldozed out and reseeded back to grass." Council agreed erosion should be prevented by reclaiming old gravel pits, areas where pipe lines have been installed and old access roads. "They are asking for suggestions." noted Coun. Jim Blackmef. "Sites should be left as close to the original condition as possible." Said Coun. Leif Trockstad of New Dayton: "They don't even mention rail lines."

The planning commission noted various other objections, such as failure tc comply with "transfer regulations" and others. Coun. Holt was strong in his objections to the planning advice. He noted it is right on a highway and ideal for a residence. "It is really not good, agriculturally productive land." he said. "That is the right way to subdivide it." he said, opposing the planners. Coun. Don Christensen. council's member on the commission, said one of the objections was that it would take prime land out of production. Said Coun. Holt: "It has always been a nuisance to farm it because it is too small an acreage. You are cutting across the highway with equipment. It is just a nuisance. It is cut off by the railway and it would be better ;o use it for what he is trying to use it for." He said the 19-acre piece "really is a problem and should be subdivided and the planners object. You just show me the logic on that. Coun. Elda Mueller of Wrentham said: "You can't sit in an office. I don't care what anybody says, and know all these facts. This is the problem." "This has good access on both sides." said Coun. Holt. "Nothing wrong with a subdivision like this. It might do somebody some good." Canadian ism The Warner County Foundation, operator of the Ridge View at Raymond, informed council it is faring a heavy deficit for -June on top of a SLOW deficit for its operation in May.
