Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 10, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta ____ Friday, September 10, 1971 THE LETHBRIDGE HERAIO 15 Pollution still a problem along the Oldman River The city of Lcthbridge has been polluting the Oldman Hlver for a distance of some 50 miles downstream from the city, a biological survey con- ducted by the Alberta fish and wildlife division shows. But, the stream is clearing lip and when Lethbridgc's sec- ondary sewage treatment plant goes into operation, there should be a significant change. In one survey taken during the fall of 1970, organic wastes reduced -associated organisms for a distance be- School enrolment is low There were 45 fewer students enrolled in Lethbridge separate schools this fall than anticipat- ed, separate school trustees were told Wednesday. Bob K i m m i 11, separate schools superintendent, said the prediction had been for students, but only are en- rolled just two more than were in the system in June this year. He said the reason is that 30 fewer Indian students register- ed, due to the current move by southern Alberta Indians to es- tablish their orni high schools on their reserves. In addition, 19 students from Catholic Central High School transferred to Winston Church- ill High School, a public school. Because Alberta school finan- cing is based on the number of students in the school district, close to may be lost in grants. The school district's teaching staff increased hy the equival- ent of slightly more than one full-time teacher, with employ- ment of a half-time shop teach- er and return to duty of CCHS principal Stan Sawicki, who teaches part-time. Mr. Sawicki had been on a year's sabbatical leave. f ASPHALT PAVING TOLLESTRUP Construction Co. Ltd. SAND and GRAVEL PHONE 328-2702 tween 40 and 50 miles down- stream from the city. Above Lethhridgc, the survey describes the Oldman River as clean. For five miles down- stream from the city, the river is described as polluted. Some recovery is noted at the bridge across the river north of Coal- dale, 20 miles downstream. At the Taber bridge, a dis- tance of 52 stream miles, the river is again described as clean. At 66 miles, at the High- way 36 bridge northeast of Taber, the river is also de- scribed as clean. In the spring survey of the same conditions are de- scribed for the river, with the exception of the Highway 36 bridge location, where the wa- ter is described as degraded. Similar surveys taken during the fall of 10C9 and the spring of 1970 showed considerably more pollution all along the Oldman. The survey concludes: In- creased river flows during the winter and additional pollution- abatement equipment installed by municipalities and indus- tries have resulted in the im- provement.

The city's engineering de- partment has instructed Dis- pose-All, which took over the landfiU operation this summer, to revert to the former prac- tice of allowing private, citi- zens to dump refuse directly, rather than use the large con- tainers placed at the gate for after-hours use. The containers were being Used after p m. and Sat- urday afternoon and Sunday, but the public has apparently been reluctant to abandon the old ways. The engineering department has asked the public to dump only in designated areas, which are to be clearly marked. Annexation On Jan. 1, 1972 (he town of Blairmore will grow by about 70 acres. The Alberta Gazette reports the town's request for annexa- tion of property at its present southern boundary has been partially approved.

The move was necessary due to the change in the Alberta Age of Majority Act, and re- quired by notification from the provincial attorney goncrdis department. Because of Die re-authoriza- tion it will also be necessary to re-advertise the bylaws in order to give ratepayers a chance to inspect the purposes the funds will be used for. Included are a bylaw for a St. Mary's School addi- tion; for renovations to St. Basil's School; and for renovations to Catholic Cen- tral High School. Trustees were told the St. Basil's renovations will be com- pleted in about six weeks, and the CCHS renovations will be put to tender this _ month and construction started' and finish- ed during the Christmas vaca- tion.

Now because of technicalities the Alberta Local Authorities Board has not yet approved the money bylaw, so funds arc not yet available for con- struction. Because tender prices are ap- plicable for only 30 days, this delay has meant the school dis- trict must seek extension from the approved contractor, Gil- lett Construction Ltd. And Gil- lett, in turn, cannot extend the time limit without approval from about 22 sub-contractors, many of whom must seek ap- proval from their own sub-lrado contractors.
