Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 26, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD November Gas plant wastes applied in tests to pasture land Some waste materials from the processing of natural gas at the Waterton Shell Oil Com- pany plant have been applied by irrigation to pasture land surrounding the plant site. Through a co operative ef- fort between the oil company and the Alberta Department of the Environment in studies have been done to determine the best land application of the liquid waste material. And if more than 30 similar natural gas processing plants in Alberta could follow this pilot project for waste disposal. Dave a soil scientist for the department of the en- said the project at Waterton is stnctly a disposal solution to a growing problem of waste accumulation. In the processing of natural the raw material must be with chemicals and water to get rid of sulphur and other impurities. Through the chemicals can be retrieved but the liquid left over is waste. Mr. McCoy said the water being used in the irrigation project is of marginal quality because it has high quantities of dissolved solids which could lead to salt accumulation in the soil. He said the apparent solu- tion is to apply the liquid at a proper rate over a large using enough land to get rid of the waste.

Students in elementary and junior high grades are being taught science in an attempt to teach them certain skills which will be useful to them throughout says Paul a science teacher at Myers High School in and president of the Southern Alberta Regional Science Council. A workshop held Saturday in and attended by anout 22 teachers from the was designed to give teachers a look at the new methods of teaching particularity space science. Mr Stevenson said that stu- dent interest in space and astronomy peaked with the American moon but is being rekindled as the com- et Kohoutek comes closer to earth Teachers are using this interest to increase their students' knowledge of skills used frequently in scientific work There is too much scientific Mr Stevenson for anyone to know don't care if students know how far it is to For science has in the been a he but the council is attempting to bring it closer to reality. We take the program as stu- dent interest he said If students are interested in the more time is spent doing classroom work about them He said that for a making a report on Venus doesn't mean very but a chance to get out at night and look at the moon makes it real.

All applications were spaced 15 days-apart. Thirty-five acres of land were used. Through the growth studies in the Mr. McCoy found the waste material con- tains many plant including ammonium and nitrogen. Mr McCoy feels that nitrogen is the greatest addi- tion to soil nutrients In the form nitrogen is it isn't readily available to plants but after it is mixed with the soil and left at nor- mal temperatures for about a practically all the nitrogen is converted to a nitrate form by microbial ac- tion is highly available to plants but it also readily moves into ground water if not used by the he said. This is the reason for stnct controls on the rate of applica- tion of the waste material. With the recommended eight inches of actual water Mr McCoy feels about 250 pounds of nitrogen per acre would be put on the soil Using barley plants in the Mr McCoy used FOX DENTURE CLINIC Ell. 1122 PHONE 327-6M5 E.

Phono ttl-MM Lethbridge scientists have predicted Alberta's potato yields the south could reach 22 tons per acre twice the yield of Canada's biggest potato growing New Brunswick. Work by members of the Lethbridge Research Station has already increased the yield to 12 tons per acre from 7.5 tons since said infor- mation officer Phil Blakeley. Total production last year was tons. Several activities are being undertaken at the research station to improve potato he said Scientists are trying to develop new varieties of potato specifically suited to Southern Alberta. Another important aspect of the potato research involves control of diseases and pests. Field tests have shown that DDT resistant Colorado Potato Beetles can be effec- tively controlled with only one fourth the level of insecticide currently recommended. Researchers are also look- ing for a replacement for a banned pesticide formerly used to control wireworms. They also hope to eliminate ring rot which affect one fourth of all growers. a pot with soil from the gas plant site as a check against plant growth with the material applied. He found the soil near the plant site was relatively infer- indicating that any ad- ditional growth could be attributed to the waste materials added in the greenhouse and on the pasture. In three other he applied varying levels of waste material. In he added only a commercial fer- tilizer while in yet another test he combined the fertilizer and waste material. By weighing the dry matter produced in each he found the sample with only fertilizer added increased the weight of product three times more than the check pot. In two of the samples using adequate amounts of waste he found the amount of dry matter increased about two times In the other sample with extreme amounts of waste the amount of dry matter was decreased by one third The most significant increase was recorded in the pot utilizing both commercial fertilizer and waste material He harvested 5Vz times more dry matter in this pot. Both times the fertilizer were with and without the waste the application was identical. Mr. McCoy said this indicates the waste material significantly increased plant growth.
