Healy, technical secretary of the XII Water Pollution commission. Healy, in response to Telegraph' inquiries last fall, blamed irxius- trial waste from Massachusetts industries as polluting the .Vashua I river. At the time, he said the] river here is filled with deposits, ;scum) representing discharge oil untreated industrial waste from I Massachusetts factories situated along the river. The Nashua river starts in the! Itchburg, Mass, area and dis-j charges into the Merrimack river,! in this city. .' All The ffay Up l Healy said the Boston con-i 'erence will not involve only that i section of the Merrimack river! in the -Nashua area but clear up to Franklin, including tributa-! ries. He said about Nashua sewer; projects completed last year un-l der a $1,350,000 bond issue: ! "Nashua is moving nicely in j its pollution control problems, j II should be given credit for j what has been done. There Is i more work to be done but Nash- ; ua bas been very cooperative with the.Water Pollution commission. The stale and commission have received top co-operation from the Mayor and Board of Aldermen." The Boston conference has also xxn rquested by Gov Endicott Peabody to improve the Merrimack river for industrial lecrea- tional and public water supply uses. Boating Kefused The Merrimack's pollution has caused the state of Massachusetts :o withhold sanctions for boating and water-skiing activities. The shellfish flats at the mouth of the Merrimack river have been closed siiice 1S25 and clams laXen rom moderately polluted water are treated in clean water to make them fit for human consumption. Lawrence obtains its water supply from the Merrirnack but state authorities have advised the city .0 mike bacterii! or.c!:.~sis five days a week on the raw water and treated water because of possible contamination in the atcr. High bacterial concentrations ave been reported in the Mcr- rimack at the Massachusetts-New Hampshire state line. Elsewhere industrial waste discharges cause objectionable colors in the river water. The purpose of the conference, whieh is open to the public is to review the pollution situations in the river with the Massachusetts and New Hampshire slate agencies and. if appropriate, recommend appropriate action with .imelaMes to improve the quali- ly of the waterways. The conferees will be representatives of the water pollution control agencies for Massachusetts and New Hampshire and lerbert II.
