City Manager Fritz Lanham said the samples were taken during a period of heavy rains when the flow into the treatment plants was greater than their approved capacity. For example, Lanham said, the West Main plant, which has an approved capacity of 1,100.000 gallons per day, received approximately 2% million gallons of sewage on Jan. 4. The city manager added that the Baytown plants have operated more efficiently than the report to the state pollution board showed. "But we know that sometimes they do not operate within the standards set by the state board," Lanham said. Figures on BOD of the Baytown plants obtained from the Harris County Pollution Control office do not indicate as much deficiency as the figures reported to the state board. Nevertheless, the county of - fice's figures showed only half plants to be operating be- maximum stand- Fart of these bonds already have been sold and the money will be used to expand the West Main plant and lay some designated sewer lines. Dr. W. A. Quebedeaux Jr., who directs Harris County air and stream pollution control activities, said records of his office show that none of the Baytown plants were in compliance with the state standards.
