' i inn Galveston County THURSDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 14,1993 THE GALVESTON DAILY NEWS 9-A Galveston may award contract for sewer study ' By MAGGIE SIEGER 1 TTie Daily Nawa GALVESTON — The Environmental Protection Agency has ordered the city to perform a study of its sanitary sewer system within the next four years. The study is estimated to take three years. The Galveston City Council will consider a bid from Camp Dresser & McKee Inc. of Houston to perform the study when it meets at 2 p.m. today at City Hall, 823 Rosenberg Ave. A workshop session will begin at noon. The bid price is $1.3 million Another $180,000 will be needed to purchase a sewer cleaning machine and computers for use in conjunction with the study. The study, which would be conducted over 30 months, is the precursor to mandatory EPA improvements. The city proposes to pay for the estimated $4 million worth of improvements with a bond issue. Bond debt would be paid with revenue from an eighth-cent sales tax increase if voters approve the increase Nov. 2. The tax is expected to generate $500,000 annually. Five West End subdivisions also must be taken off septic tanks and hooked into the tity system, at an estimated cost of $4 million, city officials said. City Manager Doug Matthews said the EPA most likely will require the city to take the subdivisions off septic systems within the next several years. During its workshop session fol: lowing the meeting, the council will discuss a proposed ordinance regulating the removal of lead; based paint from structure exteri- '; ors. ;• Lead-based paint and the lead , dust created from grinding it are ; responsible for at least 90 percent of the 215 cases of lead poisoning in •1 Galveston over the past two years, I said Chuck Chambers, an epidemiologist with the Galveston : Health District.

The blues/rock/soul legend is making his comeback after a too-long hiatus from the limelight with a new national tour that makes a stop tonight at Strand Street Saloon. Both shows are sold out. Russell is on tour to promote his first record in a decade, "Anything Can Happen." Critics guarantee the stompin' piano man is back in fine form with the new disc, the result of a collaboration between Russell and co-producer Bruce Hornsby. The Oklahoma native with the distinguished twang in his voice established a loyal fol- Leon Russell lowing in the 1970s as a session musician. He is perhaps best known for his pounding rendition of "Jumpin* Jack Flash" with Joe Cocker's Mad Dogs and Englishmen tour and for his high-octane performance during the Concert for Bangladesh. Other Russell hits included "This Masquerade," "Delta Lady," "Tightrope" and "Roll Away the Stone." Welcome back, Leon. And get ready for a new generation of fans. Bill Dana. Joining them will be songstress Marflyn Maye and the Steve Allen Jazzmen. The show begins at 8 p.m. Sunday at the Opera House. Tickets are $15$30.
