FOREST PARK REVIEW, 7451 Modison Street...Forest Pork, Illlrxoii 60130 Name Addren Town- Stote- -Zlp- Senator Motor's DesPlaines River Pollution Statement To The Illinois Senate Metropolitan life is inescapably bound to the conditions 1 of the urban enviroment. We are bound to a system of dynamic inter- dependences. Each of us is in some way dependent upon all of us and upon tho environment for our living - nur well-being yes, our very existence. One aspect vital to our existence is water quality and water supply. Protection of water quality is vital to the optimum utilization of our limited - and dwindling water resources. Misuse of the 1 waters of the DesPlaines River in the past lias given us what we have today. Many of us here today have long fought for improvements in this river- We have demanded an end to pollution caused by local municipal sewage discharges, industrial wastes and the like. The present plans of the North Shore Sanitary District to discharge partially - treated sewage . from Lake County suburbs into our river is offensive - in more ways than one. The acceptable sewage treatment and disposal methods of yesterday are not acceptable today - especially where, as here, those methods threaten west suburban anti-pollution efforts to save a river which has too long served as a so-called "convenient and acceptable" receptacle for human wastes. What Is especially disturbing is that most communities in this area provide the advanced sewage disposal that the wealthy North Shore suburbs are now proclaiming they cannot afford. We no longer pollute the river with our 'sewage - why should they be allowed to? We separated our sewage and storm drainage systems. - why haven't they? In times of heavy rains and flooding, if this plan is permitted, north shore raw sewage will pollute our environs. Why should we subsidize Lake County residents in this way? They^must NOT be allowed to dump their poorly-treated effluent in our very back-yards, In our recreational areas, in our waters. For the DesPlaines belongs to aU the people - andtous as much as to the North Shore! For three years I have watched the North Shore hassle with us in its effort to solve Its sewage problems. They must be solved- but not at pur expense - at their expense. This continued exploitation of public resources for private benefit, to the public detriment, must be stopped. I have this day requested the Illinois Attorney-General to commence an action in Circuit Court, my mandamus or injunction, to prevent the North Shore Sanitary District from polluting the w.aters of the DesPlaines. This action, empowered to the Attorney-General pursuant tothe 1969 Air and Water Pollution Prevention and Abatement Act, found at Chapter 14, Section 12 of the 1969 Illinois Revised Stat- utesi arises independently of any proceeding or authority of any other State agency or entity. The Sanitary District will, at the very least, be guilty of violating Chapter 19, Section 145.10, which prohibits pollution of waters of this State by disosal of organic matter. We must militantly protect the DesPlaines River or our efforts of past years will have been for nothing. We must continue the fight to preserve and improve the River. Thank you .... Girl Scouts to Launch Annual Cookie Sale Final plans are now being completed as the Lone Tree Aroi Girl Scout Council launches its annual cookie sale. Close to. 5,000 Junior, Cadette, and Senior Girl Scouts from 200 troops will begin selling door- to-door immediately on receipt of cookies.

Mrs. John Kmoch of Oak P»rk in her first year as council cookie chairman states that her goal is 246,000 boxes of cookies sold and is optimistic that this goal can be met.

This year there are five varieties of cookies to choose from including Sugared Shortbread, chocolate- vanilla cremes, thin mint cookies, peanut-butter patties and frosties, all wrapped In colorful scenic wrappings. Cookies provide money for troops to plan special trips or projects and once again the profit to troops will be based on the average number of boxes soldper girl so figured on a sliding scale, the troops can receive from 2£ up to 5? per box. • Council profits continue to provide funds to maintain the total camping program at a minimum cost 'to girls by providing equipment for troops to borrow for backyard camping, cookouts and overnight trips. Cookie profits covet* administrative costs and the purchase and maintenance of equipment, buildings and land at Camp White Deer in Three Lakes, Wisconsin and Camp Wild Rose in St. Charles, Illinois. Cookie profits paid for "Pine View" a new winterized troop house at Camp Wild Rose which was needed to meet the Increasing demands for troop camping facilities by the Girl Scouts.
