Thursday, December 6, 197929 ei!2L:Ren Pollution level returns to normal has assumed control of the Stardust and Fremont of cold air under a layer of warm air. The inversion prevented winds from coming In until temperatures warmed. Environmentalist Brian Wright said today there's been some misunderstanding over Tuesday's air conditions. He said alert conditions were not reached, as had been reported, but some of the factors that can lead to a first-stage alert were reached. Wright said an alert level becomes effective when any of various pollutants reach certain levels and when meteorological conditions make it seem probable that those conditions will be sustained over specific periods of time. He said an alert-stage level of carbon monoxide was reached on Tuesday, but weather patterns suggested that the pollutant layer would break up after a short while, at about 1 p.m., and that did, in fact, happen. For an alert to be called, regulations require that carbon monoxide reach its legally specified ' level, but also that meteorological conditions be such that it will remain at that level for at least eight hours. The various alert levels, according to Wright, are: First Stage: Public notification of alert and possible warning to schools to reduce physically strenuous programs; 15 parts per million (ppm) carbon monoxide or 0.1 ppm oxidants over eight hours, 0.6 ppm nitrogen dioxide over one hour or 0.15 ppm nitrogen dioxide over 24 hours. Second Stage: Public warnings, requests for shutdowns of stationary pollution sources, possible restricted vehicular traffic; level may cause eye irritation, coughing; 30 ppm carbon monoxide or 0.4 ppm oxidants over eight hours, 1.2 ppm nitrogen dioxide for one hour or 0.3 ppm nitrogen dioxide over 24 hours. Emergency Third Stage: State of emergency declared by governor, emergency programs inaugurated by governor and health officer, all stationary pol-liution sources shut down, vehicular traffic re-routed around alert area; 40 ppm carbon monoxide or 0.6 ppm oxidants over eight hours, 1.6 ppm nitrogen dioxide for one hour or 0.4 ppm nitrogen dioxide over 24 hours. noifia. me incvaaa gaming career of controversial casino owner Allen Glick. Sachs said Wednesday his company, Trans-Sterling Inc., has completed its purchase of all of the common stock of Glick's Argent Corp. and has taken over operation of the two resorts. Under the sales agreement, Sachs becomes president of Argent while Glick has resigned as an officer and director of the corporation. Trans-Sterling is expected to merge with Argent at a later time and operate the hotels under its own name Sachs, sole owner of Trans-Sterling, paid $68 million for the stock, including $2 million in cash. In addition, another $91 million is owed by Argent to the Central States, Southeast and Southwest Teamster pension funds. Glick was under orders from state gaming officials to unload the resorts after he was charged by the Gaming Control Board with allowing a slot skimming operation to flourish at four Argent hotels. By STACY END RES A sharp rise in the Reno area's pollution level Tuesday was followed Wednesday by a level considered average for current weather conditions. An alert was not issued, said Washoe District Health Department environmentalist Jack Sheen, but open burning was prohibited Wednesday as a precautionary measure. The burning ban continued again today. Sheen said Wednesday's combined pollution index was 30, or light pollution, compared with Tuesday's heavy pollution reading of 85. Monday's index was 33. He said when a level peaks as dramatically as that, "something extraordinary has happened to set that up. In this case it was a moderately strong, very shallow inversion. We're now back to what we consider the average combined pollution Index for the kind of weather we're having." The pollution was composed of smoke from fireplaces, auto emissions and dust, trapped by a layer Reno Evening Gazette 9 II IV V IL.
