Kuna police chief resigns position Professional Engineers endorse principle, site for power plant Obituaries By Warren Adams BOISE -- A special power plant siting committee of the Idaho Society of Professional Engineers HSPE) has reported additional power generation will he needed to meet near future and long range power demands in Idaho, and has concluded Idaho Power's Orchard side near linise is an acceptable location for (he company's proposed 1,000 megawatt coal- fired ihcrmal generalion plant. The committee reporl, which was endorsed by (he 1SPE in a formal resolution Feb. 1, was Valley weather BOISE -- A low pressure area and a strong arctic high are Ihe main features affecting Ihe weather over Idaho loday. Very moist, warm air from a large, deep low wcsl of the Northern California coast is spreading rain into Northern California and Southwest Oregon. This precipitation will spread eastward tonight, resulting in increasing clouds with a chance of rain or snow in Southwestern Idaho tonight and Thursday. Cold air from a strong high localed over Eastern Montana and Southern Canada has spilled into parts of Eastern and Northern Idaho. Continued cold is forecast in (hese parts of the slate Ihrough Thursday. Highs will be in the 20s, with lows zero lo 15. In Southwest Idaho, highs are expected to be in Ihe 30s to lower 40s, with lows in Ihe 20s. The Idaho extended outlook calls for a more westerly flow of m'r lo develop over Ihe slale, resulting in moderating temperatures Friday. This flow means moisture will he present, so scattered snows are expected Friday Ihrough Sunday in Ihe mountains, with rain or snow in the valleys. Afternoon temperatures will be mostly in Ihe 30s and lower ·IOs. Minimums will be in the 20s, except in Eastern Idaho, where they will dip into Ihe teens. made public at a press conference in Boise Tuesday, The committee concluded t h a t : -- Additional power generation is required lo meet both Ihe near future and long range power demands in Idaho. Southwestern Idaho is a region whero demand will be particularly critical. - Coal-fired thermal plant construction is the most economical means of obtaining timely additional power to mecl immediate load demands. Nuclear plants, however, should be considered in all future siles. --Coal-fired thermal plants can be designed to more lhan meet state and national air emission and waler discharge standards and are Ihe most feasible type of plant to be constructed lo meet immediate future power needs in Idaho. -- Emission discharges can be and should be treated to more lhan meet all federal and state air and waler quality standards, and controlled air emission from properly located modern thermal power plants will not violate ambicnl air standards. -- Each sile for proposed thermal power plants should be thoroughly studied lo determine ils relationship to surrounding ecology and what effects will occur upon the surrounding area. -- Considering all factors, the Orchard site appears from studies made lo be an acceptable location for a coal-fired thermal plant. The Orchard silc is suilable because of adequate land availability, an ample water supply from Ihe nearby Snake River, because railroad lines already exist for the (ransporl of coal from Wyoming, and because the sile is acceptable environmentally, (he committee reported. Lyman D. Wilbur, ISPE commillce chairman, said the reporl was Ihe culmination of a three-monlh investigation undertaken independenlly by the ISPE. He said much of the data used by the committee came from Idaho Power and from studies made by Ihe city of Seattle. The committee also inspected Idaho Power's coal- fired Jim Bridger plant in Wyoming as part of its study. Wilbur, who is a consultant engineer and retired vice president of Morrison-Knudsen Co., Inc., said other members of the commilleo were Melvin D. Alsager, environmental coordinator for J.R. Simplol Co.; Charles E. Brockway, of the University of Idaho staff, doing research on Ihe river modeling and-groundwaler modeling in Ihe Snake River Basin; Wallace N. Cory, environmental manager, Timber and Building Materials Group, Boise Cascade Corp.; Verl G. King, project officer for water development in Ihe Idaho Department of Water Resources; and Calvin C. Warnick, presently a member of the University of Idaho engineering teaching staff and past director of Ihe Water Resources Instilule. "We are not actually endorsing Pioneer," Wilbur (old reporters. "We are saying we believe a plant al Ihe Orchard silc would be acceptable." "We're Irying to tell Ihe public mat we don't sec any real problems if il (Pioneer) is buill there." Wilbur also said copies of the committee report will be senl lo power plant siling officials in Ihe slale, including Gov. Cecil Andrus and members of the Idaho Legislature.

Bolh were relumed lo Ihe Slate Affairs Committee for further sludy. Chase said Republican compromise approach would not solve anything. He said those employes in Ihe upper bracket would end up receiving a smaller net because Ihe employes al the lower end of the scale had the deductions.
