CUMBERLAND, MD., WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER U, 1955 FIVE City Lauded For Building Treatment Plant Pollution from America's industries "has finally'caught up with us"-and the results "are "a mess in the river," Dr. Ealph E. Fuhrman of Washington, told area chemists last night. Dr. Fuhrman, executive secretary-treasurer of. the Federation of Sewage and Industrial Wastes Association, gave a report on pol- ^lution in the North Branch o£ the w?otomac River at a dinner meeting of the Western Maryland Section, American Chemical Society, here last night. The industrial revolution, 'which: boosted urban population from one third to two-thirds between 1900 and 1950, he said, has brought 1 pressure on the stream pollution problem'to the point where it is out of hand. . The Potomac River, he predicted, is going to develop and more impounding, dams will' be built to make the best use of the water supply needed for increases in population arid industry, adding, "We can't let all the flood water go down." ' . . He praised the action of the City of Cumberland-in building its. $2,000,000 sewage treatment plant, but j said he "wished industry would rnatch what the city is doing." "Cumberland is destined to grow, both up and down stream," he said, and the presence of the sewage treatment plant will contribute to the future growth of the area. Dr. Fuhrman said he was pleased that Cumberland is building a plant adequate to care for the metropolitan area and commented that it could be used to treat both the industrial and sanitary wastes from the Amcelle plant and the sanitary load from LaVale and Cresaptown. Industries, he said, should reduce their wastes by improving industrial processes and water reclamation and, when needed, by building treatment plants to reduce the pollution load on the streams. During his address. Dr. Fuhrman showed slides ard color pictures of the North Branch of the Potomac River, taken between 1950 and 1952 during his survey of the stream in this area, sponsored by the Interstate Commission on the Potomac River Basin. He also devoted part of his talk to the technical side of river sanitation, including the effect of nattlral forces upon stream pollution. Dr. Fuhrman expressed pleasure with the progress being made on the " Cumberland-Ridgeley Flood Protection Program -and said the results will be "wonderful thing" for the Cumberland area.
