Suggestions included increasing pumping capacity to the ir rigation system to lower the level in the 40-acre lagoon dur Lug the spring. Then aerobic activity in the lagoon would be more effective. Council learned the 320 acres being .irrigated could absorb the two million gallons per day needed to lower the lagoon level. Crops could use the extra irrigation, up to 21 inches, during the season. Officials from Reid, Crowther and Partners, Calgary, and Dave Graveland of the Lethbridge office, department of the environment, propose a system of testing to determine effectiveness of the plan. Council took no action. Installation of a second pumping unit, if only as a stand-by for the present unit, will be considered.
