Wednesday Morning, September 27. 1978 |lail«, 5-A Marine Log TC Canal Statement Finished A final environmental impact statement on enlargement of the Texas City Industrial Canal has been completed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and filed with the Environmental Protection Agency in Washington, D.C. The proposed work includes widening the present 1,000-foot width to 1,200 feet and maintaining the depth at the authorized 40 feet, said Col. Jon C. Vanden Bosch, district engineer. The proposal includes relocation of the existing turning basin 85 feet to the east and deepening and widening the canal leading to the basin. All work will be performed by hydraulic dredge, the statement says. Dredged material will be placed on Snake Island and in an adjacent area of Galveston Bay, Vanden Bosch said. The statement contends the project will provide for unrestricted and safe use of low-cost marine transportation, allow more efficient use of deep-draft vessels, reduce the possibility of marine accidents and groundings and upgrade the general well- being of residents of the Texas City area through expanded economic opportunities. The dredging, however, will cause short-term localized muddying of the waters, destroy or disturb some bottom-dwelling organisms, cover vegetation, and eventually cover 550 acres of bay bottom of value because of sports and commercial species of fish. Dredging also may cause some short-term objectionable odors, the statement said. The proposed work has been reviewed by federal, state and local agencies, private citizens, conservation and environmental groups and others, as required by the national environmental policy act of 1969. SHIPPING ACTIVITY Variety Interests Biology Instructor News Mainland Bureau TEXAS CITY—Paul Williamson, College of the Mainland's new biology instructor, doesn't confine his attention to the microscope and specimen collection, but instead opens himself to the theater, music, sports and literature. While he doesn't present himself as a Renaissance man, he does believe that all one's preambulations outside one's major field can help get across classroom material. Before leaving for additional graduate work at the University of Wyoming, Williamson taught for six years in the La Marque SUBSCRIBE TODAY! school system, where he was named educator of the year in 1978. He is a Phi Kappa Phi and a member of Beta Beta Beta, the national honorary society in biology. One of Williamson's primary interests through the years has been to work with the Educational Testing Service in Princeton, N.J., to 'develop standardized tests used nationwide to measure subject mastery. He meets with teachers and instructors from throughout the country each summer in Princeton to compare notes on how biology is being taught, COM's dean of instruction, Dr. Donald Mortvedt, noted, "Paul Williamson is outstanding in. every way, and we're very fortunate to be able to attract him to our faculty."
