Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 6, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 'HE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, Oclober 6, 1971 Arument raes over weedy lake i IT) The ar- gument over v.'hu is responsible for Iliirk weeds in Luko Waba- mun continues while the beach is slill strewn with the slimy growth despite a harvest of weeds this summer, li Thomas, a collage own- er al the lake miles west of Kdmonton, says the weeds were never t; problem before j the construction of power plants on the lake. i The discharge of warm water used to cool the Uvo at i he north and wesl ends of the caused the prob- lem. Mr. Thomas. Power denies it of courser They talk about sewage from the town of Wabamun and low lake levels." A weed harvester toured parti of the lake all summer and for a time the problem appeared to be solved, but strong west winds carried the weeds onto the beach at Kapa- siwin at the lake's east end. David Innis, another cottage j owner, says "as far as we're concerned now, the harvester hasn't done a tiling." "It's a situation Hint aside from being a nuisance is con- sidered a danger to swimmers and water Ik. Thomas adds. Swimmers have had to lake canoes out beyond Lhe 50-foot- wide belt of weeds for a dip. COOLING TOWERS He says Kapasiwin has sug- gested cooling towers to Cal- gary Power, but added the resi- dents realize any workable solution would be expensive. Will Smith, Calgary Power regional manager, agrees cool- ing towers would be expensive and the customers would end up paying the cost. But power rates would not be raised until the corporation is certain why the weeds are so thick in Waba- mun. Lake Wabamun is not the only lake affected and Calgary Power is participating in a gov- ernment study to determine why the weeds are thick in northern and central lakes. Per TOMMY FERGUSON X Ir.serled by T. I. FERGUSON No midnight phone calls by reporters LONDON (AP) The Brit- ish Press Council has ruled that reporters should not tele- phone members of the public after midnight unless they have good reason. The council, a government- sponsored watchdog group which has no punitive powers, made its ruling after a com- plaint from a British peer, Lord Inglewood, that he had been awakened one morning by The Sun. He said the call was an unnecessary interrup- tion. The Sun said the call was urgent, involving an allega- tion that a government grant to the British pavilion at the world hunting exhibition in Budapest was helping subsi- dize pig-sticking. The council upheld the peer's complaint and said the public was entitled to a good night's sleep.
