McCREADY-BAINES PHARMACY LTD. 614 3rd Ave. S., Lelhbridgo Phone 327-3555 Domestic Use Sewage Charge Increase Hinted A domestic user sewage ser- vice charge of a month is included in proposed revisions to Lethbridge's sewer bylaw. The current domestic sewage charge is per month. The revisions, made public in a press release from the city manager's office, are subject to approval by city council and no action will be taken until after a public meeting, now set for p.m. Nov. 9 at Susie Bawden School. City council, says the release, may consider staging the pro- posed increase over the next 18 to 24 months. It is sugested, for example, the domestic charge might be increased to a month Jan. 1, 1971 and the full increase not applied until July, 1972. The revisions also include changes for commercial users and industry. Negotiations with the latter have been underway for some weeks now and the Nov. 9 meeting has been de- signed primarily, according to Mayor Andy Anderson, as a means of presenting to the public the basic positions of in- dustry and the city on the equitable distribution of sew- age charges. One of industry's main con- cerns has been that the charges, which must be in- creased to pay for the second- ary sewage treatment plant, not be so high as to force the firms to locate elsewhere. The city's press release says the basic formula for sewage charges has been developed using the philosophy that those placing the greatest load on the system should pay the most. It adds, however, that an an- alysis has been made of what charges are made to industries in other Alberta centres, and :he local proposed rate has been reduced to a similar level. This reduction would place the operation of the sewage treatment plant in a deficit position, says the release. In srder to make up the deficit, higher rates have been pro- posed for domestic users. The actual formula for indus- trial users is a complicated one nvolving fixed rates for the total quantity of sewage dis- charges, the amount of sus- jended solids, the oxygen de- manding materials and grease. A minimum has also been Jroposed for the amount of that may be discharged nto the system a concentra- ion above 450 parts per million must not be exceeded. There is also a minimum bill- ing proposal intended to en- courage industry to spread their production, and sewaga flow, evenly throughout tha year. With the exception of season- al industries such as vegetable processors, firms will bo charged not less than 50 per cent of the maximum charge in any of the previous 12 months. A reduction for firms regu- lating their sewage flow so it is spread evenly over a 24-hour period is also provided for in the new formula. The inducements to industry to avoid peak flows as much as possible are included, says tho release, because sewage treat- ment costs are dependent on maximum flows entering a sewage treatment plant. Seivage Talk Is Planned Mayor Andy Anderson said Monday he intends to set up a meeting with the provincial cabinet to discuss secondary sewage treatment facilities while in Calgary this week at- tending, the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association con- vention. Premier Harry Strom will also be at the convention. Just what will be under dis- cussion at the meeting has not been .defined at this point. It has been indicated local in- dustries, who will be paying a considerable portion of the cost of the new treatment plant, may be involved and the dis- cussions may be wide-ranging in scope.
