Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 3, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, September 3, 1974 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Cleaner air pleases Pincher residents "We've been waiting 13 years for the air to be cleaned says a Pincher Creek resident who lives 14 miles east of Shell Canada's Waterton gas plant. One of 15 area residents who sued Shell and Gulf Oil and settled out of court for in 1971, Mrs. Sophie Taylor says she hopes the new SCOT plant will eliminate the noxious fumes occasionally coming from the direction of Shell's plant. Mrs. Taylor said Shell of- ficials have become more respo'nsive to public queries since the disputes which led to the out of court settlement: Plant boss Cliff Paulson "They couldn't be less responsive than she notes. "We can still smell fumes sometimes we smell condensate. "But I do think the situa- tion has she adds, "since the "terrible" days when there was no communication between area residents and the gas plant. I think the govern- ment has helped." Like most residents in the vicinity of the gas plant. Dale McRae says the Conservative government helped cut pollution levels in the area. Shell Oil, he adds, is "giving the impression of trying very hard" to minimize pollution. A rancher who has lived in the area all his life, says his cattle never suffered from airborne sulphur. One of the Farm and Ranch test plots is on his land eight miles northeast of the plant, and rancher McRae says the alfalfa and barley both visibly suffer from airborne sulphur dioxide when the weather is wet. "You can see the white spots where sulfuric acid drops on it. "If there's dew you real- ly get it. He said the Farm and Ranch people have explain- ed everything about the ex- perimental plot, providing him "free access to infor- mation."
