' ':'·'· r :;· ,-···· Martin, who will bei 70 on Sunday, will be replaced as lead, of the water utility oh Way 15 by /Paul Beermann, former San Diego city water director. On July 1, the water raan- age,r will retire officially. AND HE'S happy that the city's w a t e r system--his chief love, aside from his wife, Lillian; his daughter, Mrs. Warren Lynch, and his four grandchildren--will be in ood hands. "Beermann's going to be a ·bod man," Martin said. "He las a fine background, particularly in water research." Research and advance planning have been Martin's major areas of concentration. "We've always looked forward and never had to ration water here," he said with a trace of pride. "Cities with larger supplies available have sometimes had to ration water because of poor planning or treatment problems. "FORTUNATELY, w e'v e never had to treat our water here, other than to add a little chlorine as a health precaution." A self-educated man and artillery veteran of World War I, Martin first went to work as city water superintendent in 1931. In 1941, he was named acting city manager, replacing City Manager George Seeley, who went into service for World War II. In 1945, Martin officially was appointed city manager. He held that post until 1951, w ven he resigned. Briefly, during 1955, he served as acting city manager before Porter W. Homer arrived to take -the job. DURING ALL this time, Martin headed the city water utility. -Citizen Photo by Bern!* S«dl»y PHIL J. MARTIN JR. . . . After 32 years, still interested in Tucson's future water supply.

"The total budget was about $250,000," he said. Today, the city water utility is a $4 million annual operation, serving more than 40 million gallons a day to 60,000 customers. The city now has 230 wells. "Of course, we only had about 32,000 people here in 1932," Martin pointed out. "Today, we have eight or nine times that many." free! 1 FAIRY TALE i PLAQUES! w I Aladdin Little Red Riding Hood Take one home with each purchase of JWK7riV Baby Products offered in a special display in our store. )) Full color! jc: Washable! 5^For nursery walls, doors, toy chests, etc. DRUG CENTERS DOWNTOWN . 43 EAST CONGRESS · EL CON SHOPPING CENTER - 3605 I.

Will reprocessed sewage effluent become one of those sources? . "It's a possibility," he conceded, "but it's more probable that we'll use more and more of it for irrigation, of farm crops. "Possibly, when the need is great enough, effluent .could be completely treated for use as drinking water," he continued. "But this is way off in the future. The public is not ready for it--although many cities are, in effect, doing this right now by using river water." MARTIN SAID he thinks farming, one of the Tucson area's greatest water users, will continue to decline,- "not so much because of a water shortage, but because of expansion of the urban area into lands now used for fanning. "The urbanization of farming lowlands puts water to its highest use," Martin added. In addition to helping Beer mann move into the water manager's job between now and July 1, Martin said, he will do some research work for City Manager Mark Keane. "AND I'VE urged Phil to be available for consulting work for us after July 1," Keane said today. "We're pleased that he has agreed to." But most of all, Martin said, he's "going to take some time off 14 after tho first of July. "I'm going to take a little trip--not to Europe or anything, because I have too much work to do here. I have to work on my cabin up near Summerhaven. "MAYBE I'LL do some hunting and fishing," he continued. BEN SAW: ·sV A AUTO TOPS 1 SEAT COVERS INSTALLED FREE!!!
