Plant / Zinc used in galvanizing isn't very toxic FROM PAGE A1 The $9 million A-Plus Galvanizing plant will house what is thought to be the largest zinc galvanizing tank in the nation - 85 feet long, 10 feet wide and 12 feet high. The zinc tank will be large enough to coat pieces as long as 100 feet. Galvanizing is a process whereby oxide-free iron or steel is dipped into molten zinc, which bonds to the surface. The zinc coating protects the iron or steel against corrosion, extending its life by up to 50 percent. Paul Mai said the zinc, which comes in 60-pound blocks, is simply tossed in the tank with the molten metal to replenish supplies as pieces are dipped. "It's just like putting cold water in a pot of hot water on the stove," he said. "Pretty soon, it's all hot." David Parker, a regional representative for the Atlanta-based federal Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, said the potential for people living nearby to experience health problems related to the plant are virtually nonexistent. "Zinc is not very toxic," Parker said. "During the galvanizing process, there are some acids that are used that could be toxic if mishandled, but generally speaking, the risk associated with galvanizing and zinc is very minimal." A vital mineral Parker said a person's average daily zinc intake through food and water is between 7 and 16 milligrams. A lack of zinc in a diet can lead to lowered immune response and decreased sense of taste and smell. Parker said the most common way for a plant worker to be exposed to high levels of zinc is by inhaling fumes from the galvanizing process. "There is no such thing as a risk-free environment," he said. "Most of the plants in operation have great ventilation systems, which reduce that problem." Very little is known about the effects of long-term exposure to zinc, Parker said, although high doses of zinc over extended periods interfere with the body's immune system and can hinder its ability to take in and use other essential minerals like copper and iron. T TRAIN CRASH MR. WORLEY ley of Salina; T HISTORICAL SITE Painting of village to be unveiled Kansas native donates painting of historical site near Republic By The Journal Staff REPUBLIC — The Pawnee Indian Village State Historical Site near Republic long has offered visitors a glimpse of the minutia of Indian life — pottery shards, depressions where lodges once stood, remains of burned timbers. What was missing was the big picture. That will change today when a painting of the village, which housed some 2,000 people in the mid-1820s, will be unveiled. The painting was created by Col. Darrell L. Combs, a retired Marine Corps officer and a mili- tary and historical artist. He is a native of Republic County who now lives in North Carolina. The oil painting depicts a bird's-eye view of Pawnee warriors returning from a horse raid, with those in the village rushing to greet them. The image is based not on Combs' imagination but on history and archaeology. Combs spent some nine months working with Tom Witty, state archaeologist, and Richard Gould, curator of the museum, to make sure his oil painting would be historically accurate. Four times he traveled to the village site to view the hillside and double-check measurements. The painting, Gould said, provides visitors with valuable perspective. "It's something we've needed for years but we never had the funds to purchase one," Gould said. They don't have the funds now, either. Combs is donating the painting. Historical and military artwork has been a lifelong passion for Combs, a 1971 art graduate of Bethany College at Lindsborg. His paintings hang in such places as the U.S. Marine Corps Museum in Washington, B.C. The Pawnee museum's collection of Combs' work is expected to grow. He plans to donate two more pieces, the first being a sculpture of a mounted Pawnee warrior that he hopes to complete next year. Combs will be on hand today for the unveiling of his painting, set for 2 p.m. at the museum. Watching the water Paul Marshall, a pre-treatment coordinator at the Environmental Protection Agency's Kansas City office, said his agency's biggest concern with galvanizing plants is the content of wastewater the plant generates. "These plants use water for cooling and rinsing," he said. "Generally, they are required to install treatment facilities to remove the heavy metals from the wastewater stream before it enters the city treatment system or is released into a receiving stream." Marshall said the amount of zinc the plant would be allowed to let flow to the city's treatment plant would depend on current zinc levels in the water and the ability of the treatment plant to handle the extra heavy metal. "Too much zinc in the wastewater stream can kill vital microorganisms that treat sewage," he said. "It can also accumulate in high levels in fish and animals living downstream of where the treated water is being discharged." Anything the treatment system collects would have to be disposed of under strict EPA guidelines, Marshall said. Mai said he expects little trouble appeasing regulators, in part because the plant is being designed by a company with experience in galvanizing plants. "Everything gets reused," he said. "We'll have little waste." . The plant will be equipped with a reclaiming process that will crystallize small pieces of material that are brushed away in the finishing process, Mai said. The zinc-laden crystals can then be sold to an Iowa company that turns them into animal feed. The land where the plant will be built is zoned for industrial use, said Frieda Mai, vice president of Salina Steel Supply. She is Paul Mai's daughter. In addition to Salina Steel Supply, the family owns and operates PKM Steel, which builds custom steel pieces, and MSS Transport, a trucking company. Paul Mai said he has not had any contact with state or federal regulators to this point, but that he will be contacting them soon. "We definitely want them to approve of whatever we are doing," he said. "We'd like to know any recommendations that they have so we can take care of it." Broken wheel likely cause of German crash Passengers realized something was wrong; death toll climbs to 98 By The Associated Press ESCHEDE, Germany — The reason for a rattling that alarmed some passengers in the minutes before the crash of Intercity Express 884 now seems clear: Investigators said Friday that a broken wheel was the most likely cause of the disaster. The 93rd victim from the site of Wednesday's crash was recovered Friday. That brought the death toll to 98. The damaged wheel that has become the focus of investigators' questions was located on the first car behind the locomotive. Investigators didn't have to go far to find the fractured steel rim that circles the wheel — it had flown off and was lodged in the train car's rear wheels. Another clue: A still unidentified piece of the train was found on the tracks nearly four miles from the concrete and steel bridge that the train struck broadside. That piece — and damage to both the rail and ties nearby — corroborates passengers' recollections of noises and vibrations two minutes before the derailed train starting breaking apart and crashed into supports for an overpass. "There was an uncomfortable rattling and I had the feeling that maybe something was lying on the tracks," Wolf-Ruediger Shliebener recalled. "People looked at each other, shocked." He said it stopped for a time — then, the crash. ON THE RECORD Hospital report Salina Regional Health Center PENN ADMISSIONS — None.
