t GKBELEV (C*Â«. TMBUNE 4^ Mink W, itM COG gives authority to ask more funds for water study Lamm says he can add fo state fart* . Martial recently In ftpecitt botrd at the Uriraw-WtM Rttfml Council rf Gwrnmnite (COG) give iU suf f brwd authority to pursue btckin) for t refinl water quality itudy initially price-tigged at Wt.OOI. . "THe COG itaff wu directed to tan nostoneunturned lo maximize them of the available fink Â« well as draw upon federal, state and local resources to support the effort," a COG statement said. Known at a "201" study, for the authority section of federal law, the two- county water quality effort through the COG was approved last June by tht U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and funded -- for a two-year study - at tSM.OOO by EPA. After more than six months of creating a dtiiens' advisory panel for the study, adding COG staff members and hiring consulting firms, the two-year study, officially began last month. However COG staff members, headed by COG "Me" study chief Eric Eidsneas, a former EPA official, for some time had been stitlng'to regional officials that $590,000 for the planning effort would Ml be enough! Eldnsness last month told the cititen adviwry panel that only about WOO.OW of the. amount would be available for the three consulting firms hired -- with the rest required for COG staff and other costs. The advisory panel voted its support for pursuit of added funding. Meanwhile, the Denver, Boulder and California consulting firms hired in January by the COG board had been financed at some S23,5vO to carry out studies of study areas and priorities, and to restudy data from an earlier state study. In Its recent special session, COG board eniphaslied two priorities for the study: - That it set what the "attainable" water quality levels are for the several rivers in the region. This would "directly impact" city and industrial treatment requirements tied to public costs, officials indicated. -That it determine the extent of agriculture's role in pollution of area waters "so that future Investments in water pollution control measures will result in identifiable benefits." Officials pointed out the "M6" study, once done, will determine for the next 20 years who will receive federal (rant funds for construction of municipal or publicly owned sewage treatment facilities in the two counties. They indicated the study also should deal in realistic wastewater treatment solutions that can be carried out. The two-year study, officials said, also must identify local government institutions legally empowered to receive grant funding and to carry out provisions of the plan. Requirements also exist for the plan to be updated each year. Spokesmen said proposed EPA permit standards for Irrigation return-flows allow continuation of current practices until new, definite standards can be set that are economically realistic. COG board also noted 'the study will bear on potential population and land use in the two-county region and, secondarily, on understanding extent of water- use competition between agriculture, cities and industries, and effects of land- use decisions on growth along with environmental and social impacts.

DENVER (DPI) - Oov. The flnalÂ« million In saving* Richard Lamm says he can add would conn from the federal $900,000 to the state's revtnu* mtrn by the end of tbs in* 77 fiscal year by revising his executive budget propouli. Unun told legislators Tuesday Ms administration overstated the IÂ«7*-T7 estimate of revenue sharing receipts by $5.5 million. However, he said he could save 16 million by downward revisions in individual income tax withholding refunds, salary increases for state personnel and costs of offsetting the public school finance act with federal funds. Instead of a targeted revenue reserve of $39.2 million at the end of 1976-77 fiscal year, Lamm estimated the reserve would total 139.7 million. Lamm said revised estimates of individual income tax withholding to be returned to the taxpayer was now 117.5 million; down from the originally estimated Â«ao million. He also said another $2.5 million would be saved by a new estimate from the State Personnel Department showing the average salary increase for public employes would be 6.1 per cent instead of 7.H per cent.
