Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 19, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, September 19, 1973 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD-17 St. Lawrence River termed the cleanest in 20 years System causes congestion Passengers psss through security checks at Calgary's International Airport. John Robulak, Air Canada airport customer service manager, has criticized the airport, claiming it causes congestion in the passenger flow. By WARD MOREHOUSE ALEXANDRIA BAY, N.Y. The St. Lawrence River is the cleanest it has been in 20 years, say American and Canadian officials. But don't try to drink it not yet. Federal, state and local watchdogs from the two countries are out looking for polluters. And the American and Canadian islander, the water- edge property owner, the tour- boat operator, and the cruiser captain alike have contributed to efforts to clean up the river. At the same time Richard Koelling of New York State's environmental conservation department says if all polluti- on were to be ended at once it would take some time for the river to fully cleanse itself. "The black eye of the en- vironment department is that it has no handle-hold on in- dividual homeowner dis- charge on the says Mr. Koelling. At present no federal law enforces in- stallation and operation of holding or treatment tanks. "Where our enforcement agency has fallen down is we don't get voluntary co- operation I feel very dis- couraged about that." Mr Koelling says If officials on the American side feel the law is not behind them. they need gaze over at Canadian waters where pollution law is tough. For ex- ample, three district health department inspectors patrol a 38-mile length of river, from Ganonocque to heart of the famous Thousand Islands enforcing Canada's codes. Canadian law tells summer residents to install holding tanks, cease dumping raw sewage, garbage or gasofine into the St Lawrence or stay away from the islands. How long will it be before the St Lawrence is drinkable9 says New York State health department of- ficial John LaPierre. "We don't advocate drinking any water that's unprotected. But I'm sure there's been an im- provement Canadian health department inspector Lome Kuntei says the St. Lawrence is the cleanest it's been in recent years Mr. Hunter said all Canadi- an municipalities between Ganonocque and Cardinal some 38 miles have primary sewage treatment works A director for waste water management for the ministry 01 environment in Toronto says. "It's difficult to measure water quality in a tree-flowing river. We'd have to do continuing surveys to find out exactly how clean or dirty the river is." A" significant pattern over the last three years emerged VVaer quality was measured by parts of bacteria (both plant and fecal) per 100 millihters of water about the size of a dime. In September. 1971, tests showed a count of 24 plant and 2 lecal parts per sample In June. 1972, there were 2 plant and 2 tecal parts, and on July 4 1973, the count was zero. Since then it has jumped back to a few parts per milhhter are iamihes and towns the sole river cleaners Ships that ply the river's deep channels and water-edge in- dustry must curb pollution and save the river.
