But ecause the area's streams are eadwaters,'and'so do not have. h volume at certain times f the year, treatment ot the laslcwater that is dumped into le streams will have lo be ioro advanced --- and .costly -- mail if.tHe same wastewater vere dumped into a river t h a t ad more water to assimilate he waste. The commission -wants' t h e Environmental P r o t e c t i o n Agency lo lower the standards originally. set for Northwest Arkansas. The problem which 'commissioners have seen coming for a couple of years camp to a lead Thursday night with the }Jty of Decalur's application for SPA money to build ,a tertiary [three-stage) wastewater 'treatment plant to replace its pro: sent plant that consists ,of pri mary treatment and lagoons. A iertmry .'treatment plant for Decatur is necessary if the city is to meet the 1977 EPA standards Cost of such a facility Is $1.223,998. The city, would .have to pay $365,999 of that cost, and if granted, EPA would'provide the remaining $B57,989. But the catch is' that the town's, only industry -- PetersonJndustries, a poultry processing , plant -would end up having to pay back 81 per cent" or the EPA portion of the grant, Riley said, He pointed out' that the federal Water .Pollution, and Control Act Amendments, say industries must repay r that share of the federal g r a n t v i h proportion'to their use of, the wastewater treatment plant. In addition to this,.industries will have lo pav their pro portionate share of the treatment costs of their wastewater. According to" a Peterson Industries' spokesman, this alone would cost the company -an extra $150.000 a year. Peterson Industries and the City oE Decalur sent two tetters along with the NWARPC's letter that favorably reviewed the grant, application for the treatment plant even while questioning the severity of the EPA standards t h a t require such a treatment planl. The City' of Decatur's letter requests the EPA to require a secondary treatment plant rather than the tertiary treat ment plant. Then, after the secondary treatment plant has been in operation for a while the city · suggests - that EPA Gasoline Syphoned SPRINGDALE -- T w o car gallons of · gasoline ., were syphoned From a : Hemenway Furniture truck Wednesday night or Thursday morning.

After the commission , approved the grant^ application and slated, its .agreement with he cily's and Peterson's letters objecting to the; present EPA standards, Melton asked for and received permission to contact Governor Pry or today to seek' iis support in the matter. !
