The pipes are more than decorative for many farmers, however, for irrigation technology is an integral part of Southern Alberta agriculture. Summer forage demands threaten winter supply Farmers should salvage all the forage material they can this summer to alleviate an expected hay shortage this winter, says the Alberta De- partment of Agriculture. The demand for hay is high this year because of drought conditions throughout the iuiu btcdUMS 01 a 30 pci" cent increase in Alberta's cat- tle population over the past five years. Farmers are urgsd to cut all material around sloughs, along roadsides, field head- lands and along any other wastelands. Some summer- fallow could also be seeded to green feed and cover crops. Other factors which should be considered include cutting hay crops at the best time for maximum quantity and quality, the use of grain, cer- eal straw and vegetable by- product for feed this winter and culling of herds early in Pension man to visit 'Pass area A field officer for the Leth- bridge district office of the Canada Pension Plan will vis- it two district areas next week Louis La Place wil be at the Federal building at Blairmore July 5 from 10 a.m. to p.m. He will also be at the town hall in Pin- cher Creek July 6 from 9 a.m. to 12 noon.

Phone 327-6565 Sewage violation case dropped A charge under the city sewage bylaw against a Lethbridge firm was with- drawn in provincial court Tu- esday. The charge against Robo Car Wash, 1505 Mayor Ma- grath Dr., alleged that on March 30 the firm was dump- ing sand and mud into the sanitary sewage system. V A 45-year-old Lethbridge man pleaded not guilty to a charge of assault causing bodily harm when he appear- ed in Lethbridge Provincial Court Tuesday.

Phone 328-5973 Seed processors cleared of sewage bylaw charge A charge against Western Canadian Seed Processors Ltd. of contravening the city sewage bylaw was dis- missed in Lethbridge Provin- cial Court Tuesday. Provincial Judge L. W. Hudson dismissed the charge saying the sample of sewage taken from the plant by t5e city and on which the charge was based was not a fair sample. Two other charges agdnst the company will be tried July 4. The charge dismissed Wed- nesday accused Western Ca- nadian Seed Processors of discharging into the city sys- tem sewage with a pH level lower than 5.5. Court was told a pH level of higher than 5.5 is vital to tfie effective operation of the city's secondary sew age treatment facility. A pH level less than 5.5 will also corrode city sewer pipes and damage WI ASfiiin. t-llW wj. ment, a witness said. (It was explained that the lower the pH level, the high- er the acid level.) A city sewage employee told the court Wednesday three samples of sewage be- ing discharged into the city system was taken at Western Canadian Seed Processors April 11 at one hour inter- vals beginning at a.m. A. V. Buttazzoni, operator of the city plant, testified Tie took the samples and they were a dark green color and had a strong odor. When tested in the city's lab, they were found to have a pH level less than 5.5, court was told. Witnesses said the city de- cided to take samples at the Western Canadian operation after residents in the area complained of a bad smell coming from the plant and after the city's secondary treatment plant was render- ed ineffective by sewage with a high acid level and a large concentration of grease entering from the city's north side. Keith Ferguson, vice-presi- dent of Western Canadian Seed, testified the sample taken by the city was collected at an outlet where the plant's acidic discharge is greatest. He said the discharge from this outlet is mixed -with clear water from other outlets be- fore it actually enters the city's sewage line. The city line is about 50 yards from where the city took its sam- ples, he testified. Counsel for the defense, Charles Virtue, suggested Ihe city sewage bylaw states only that it is illegal to discharge into the city system sewage that will cause harm to peo- ple or property. And the prosecution failed to prove this, he submitted. The two pending charges against Western Canadian Seed claim the firm on May 1 discharged sewage containing high acid levels and on April 11 discharged sewage con- taining a large grease con- centratfon. Irv Fraser, in charge of water and sewer works for the city told The Herald later that higher acidity levels in the sswage reduce the ability cf bacteria to break down solids in the secondary sew- age treatment process result- ing in poorer quality dis- charge into the Oldman River. And while industry can be fined a maximum of un- der the bylaw, the city is liable to a fine for ex- ceeding provincial environ- ment department needs. According to city solicitor John Hammond, charges un- der the sewage bylaw are fairly rare as the city pre- fers to work in co-operafion with industry. "It's not something we want to use as a club." Amendments to the bylaw are currently being discuss- cussed with industry and will provide for installation of au- tomatic sewage samplers and meters at the major indus- tries.

He said the Socred caucus could meet sometime in Aug- ust or early fall but new leadership won't be on the agenda. "In no way should he be expected to give up the leadership. I'd be most sur- prised if he was, either by the party or the he said. Mr. Gruenwald said Schmidt will move to Edmon- ton where he is expected to seek election to the legisla- ture during the next provin- cial vote. "I'm not sure if his (Cal- gary) defeat will even have an effect in a general elec- tion. If he runs, people up there (Edmonton) will not be influenced by the fact that he lost in Calgary. "He did much better than what almost any other date would have done other than a party leader. "You can't sell Werner Mr. Gruenwald said. The MLA said he expects a general election within two years.
