Hv RICHARD BURKK Herald Staff Writer Six local industries arc be'.ng billed an extra a month by (he city for sewage dis- charge. The surcharge is based on cither the volume of sownge washed into the lines at a par- ticular time, even though the amount of suspended solids and I10U (bacterial oxygen demand) is below the maximum allowed by ttie sewage bylaw, or on the amount of (lie pollutants in excess of the bylaw require- ments. The maximum accepted vol- ume, measured over an eight- hour period, is cubic feet per month. The limits on pollu- tants arc set at GOO milligrams per litre of suspended solids, 500 milligrams per litre of ROD and 350 milligrams per litrn of ester-soluble grease, The surcharge is applied to cncoura ge Indus tries to con- struct their own pollution abate- ment equipment to minimize the heavy loading of the new sec- ondary sewage treatment plant. The estimated operating cost of the plant is per year. The sewage is tested by Ma- terials Testing Laboratory out- side each of the industrial plants. The tests are conducted oncu every six months, and are pa ill for 'out of a ac- count for all industrial sewage testing. Eight Industries arc tested. From a recent test, two were found to meet the bylaw re quiremcnts in both categories and were not surcharged. Western Canada Seed Proces- sors treat the effluent before it is allowed to go into the sewer lines. Primary treatment facil- ities were installed at the plant and have been operating since December, Hugh Michael, plant manager said. Ho said the facilities cost the company more than Cornwall Canning, at this time of year, produces only soda pop, which creates little in the way of pollutants, manager Harold Vosburgh said. j However, when the fresh veg- cfable production is started iti the summer, the situation will require a closer lock, he said. The company has plans to add facilities by July which will min- imize the BOD and suspended solids contained in ttie sewage, he said, AH of the six companies which were surcharged have either be- gun installing sewage facilities at their plants or have plans for treatment. Canada Packers started work on a primary treatment facil- ity last year and is wailing for parts to arrive for completion. Ross Held, plant manager, snid the unit will cost about and when operating, in about six weeks, should elimin- ate the surcharge. At Lilydalc Poultry Sales, the quality of the sewage was ac- ceptable, hut the volume was excessive, Ralph Effler, plant manager said, One way of combatting the problem of excess waste is 10 use a holding tank at the source and allow (he effluent to ba let out over a 2-1 hour period in- stead of over eight hours. With the present rate of pro- duction and (he union contract at Lilydale, it is not economical- ly feasible to nrovi'V a holding tank, Mr. Effler said. However, plans lor plant ex- pansion "may include a hold- ing be said. The pollution strength of the effluent from Canadian Dressed Meats is also under the limits set out in the city bylaw. The company is surcharged on vol- ume, CDM manager Archie Murphy said.

CHINOOK STATIONERS LTD. 306 13 St. North Phone 327-4591 An extensive clean up pro- gram has been carried out at the plant to cut down on pollu- tants, lie said. There are also plans pending for installation of n primary sewage treatment facility in the near future, he said. Sick's Lellihridgc Brewery lias facilities now which cut down on the effluent released into the sewer linos, Bill An- derson, Sick's accounting man- ager said. However, the company has re- ceived its first billing from tlio city, he said. The matter is be- ing studied, he said, but he would not elp.ljorate. Alberta Canning produces french fried potatoes involving a process which creates high amounts of suspended solids and BOD in the sewage. There is a holding lank at the plant, but it is insufficient to keep the pollutants to llio standards in the bylaw, Davo Dyck, company manager snid. However, progress is being made In correct the situation, lie said. Tentative plans call for a change in the production pro- cess h i c h will "greatly de- crease" the amount of pollu- tants going into the scv.ngc, A baste primary treatment fa- cility has been in operation at Swift Canadian Co. Ltd. since the plant was opened, manager Jim Gough said, The process involves an over- sized holding tank equipped with link licit skimmers which re- move the grease and solids from the sewage. f Th? company !s analyzing its j in house responsibilities to de- termine if further treatment is required, Mr. (loufjh said, From the city's standpoint, some assurance is needed that the ncvv" million second- ary sewage, treatment plant lasts it.s lite expectancy. The coin nan kv- involved seem willing to CM with the city. It is benefkril to them to cut down on the pollutants com- ing out of their plants. At least part 01" the surcluirge they pay, which goes into a funded re- serve, cxiuld hs returned to them, Kandy Holfdd, engineer- ing director said. The city benefits hy having its secondary sewage treatment plant hist longer. tans to meet rising By ROX CALDVYFIJ, Herald Staff Writer BANFF The president of the Alberta Teachers' Associa- tion has called for a stiffer fi- nancial rap on the knuckles for Albertans in order to meet the sky-rocketing cost of education, Walter L. Hughes told dele- gates to the seminar here en educational finance Sunday that this province still has not tappet! all Die resources that are available. He said Alberta is now the 'b only province in Canada that has not yet adopted sales lax. "The economy is gocd, not only in Alberta, but in Can- he said. "Take a look at the amuse- ment centres and other luxury areas and you will see they arc being used as never before people can afford it." Mr. Hughes said it Alberlans could afford all these extras, then perhaps it is Lime they did seme belt tightening and start- ed spending their money where it would do some real good.

"You are lucky you aren't facing a civil suit of some sort for wounding the judge said. Police Chief TJalph Michel- son said the police will be strictly enforcing the city's bylaw against shooting in the city limits in an attempt to prevent gunshot wounds which have resulted in pasl years from illegal shooting.

In addition lo the Alberta educational expertise, the opin- ions of knowledgeable outsiders will also enter the picture. John Young, chairman of the Prices and Incomes Commis- sion, will take part, as will A. S. Huhinoff, director of the fed- eral-provincial relations divi- sion of the federal government. The seminar, sponsored by the Alberta Teachers' Associa- tion, started Sunday and will conclude Thursday. The ATA president also sug- gested thai. Alberta .should be charging move for its natural resources as a means of raising for education. He said some areas are receiving four lo five times as much for their resources as Alberta is. People who purchase luxury items .should also be made to feel more of ;i he said, and a move should he made to plug existing loopholes in in- come tax.
