Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 12, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuber Disposal Grounds To Be Moved Pollution Threat Forces Issue By ROSS GIBB Herald News Service TAEER April 1, 1971 is Ih deadline by which the Town Taber and the Tabcr MD mus abandon present garbage dis posal grounds and relocate t land-fill disposal areas suitable to the Department of Health. Barons-Eureka Health Unit': public health inspector Jame: W. McQuillan told town coun cil and representatives of th( municipal ity that existing dump grounds in coulees trib utary to the Oldman River arc a source of water pollution and that both councils "shoulr look for new locations whicl would not cause any pollution to water courses, particularly the Oldman River." Mr. McQuillan was referring to the Barnwell dump grounc as well as to Taber's disposa area north of the cemetery, and hoped that marginal lane could be obtained for this ser- vice at a reasonable cost. The town council, already faced with a change of loca- tion because the present dump ground is nearing its capacity, had contemplated use of a cou- lee south of the river down which tiie now abandoned sew- er outfall is routed, but Mr. McQuillan suggested that such a location likely would not be approved by the environmental health division of the depart- ment. Use of strip mine excava- tions, previously considered by the council, has been because of underground water courses leading to the river. Incineration of refuse was briefly considered, but this more suitable means of dis- posal is also not the most econ- omical, according to the health inspector who cited "sad expe- riences" of some larger cen- tres. MD councillors Garth Harris and Bonald Johnson noted the tendency of MD residents to dump garbage in roadway bor- row pits, suggesting that dis- posal grounds must be con- veniently located if they arc to be patronized by the country folk. Town councillor Lewis Pol- lard thought the government is tying our hands to make dis- posal nearly impossible, and mayor A. H. Avery suggested that the government is "going phase of its sewage disposa overboard in pollution control.' No action was taken at tli meeting other than to considc the possibility of a joint clfor by the two councils as far a; the area immediate to Taber i; concerned. In other news, the Town ol Taber will "do all possible" tut assured the departmen hat every effort would b made to complete the proje revent farm people from us ng the through-town route t le industrial area. Council considered the limit ng of speed and possible stop ign installation in the busines rea, and referred the matte o the works and property com u'ttee for a firm recommenda on to council's next meeting Rebuild Guiding SPARWOOD (HNS) An attempt is being made to re- activate Girl Guides Brownies here.

Winter wheat average 30 lo 35 bushels an acre and with September's moisture farmers are more optimistic about planting fall grain. Pasture land will also benefit from the moisture.
