industrial, Sewage Pollution "ontribute*To Condition Of \Monocacy, Survey Discloses . This Is tht third of a series con- taininc factual data presented at the organization meeting of the Monoc- lacy Rivtr Watershed Council at Westminster on November 10. It resulted from steps initiated by Dr. T B. Symons, director of the State Extension Service, University of Maryland. By JOE EISENHAUER 3rd Industrial and sewage pollution contributory to the Monocacy River is secondary in magnitude to the pollution caused by heavy silting from soil erosion. This is based on observations made by the Maryland Water Pollution Control Commission, set forth in an informative bulletin distributed at the organization meeting of the Monocacy River Watershed Council at Westminster on 'November 10 The same bulletin, as drawn by Edward F. Rider, information specialist of the University of Maryland Extension Service, 'also contained in preface a declaration by the Pennsylvania Department of Health. In that state, the matter of stream pollution comes under the Health Department hft Monocacy River Watershed Council has been organized for the purpose of promulgating a campaign to conserve the natural resources of the Monocacy basin and Control itrearn pollution In its' declaration, dealing with pollution, the Pennsylvania State Health Department points out that the Monocacy River heads in Adams County and on its drainage basin are the boroughs of Gettysburg, Littlestown and Fairfield, and a number of villages. Gettysburg has a sewage treatment plant jroviding primary treatment and liittlestown has a plant providing complete treatment Plans of units o provide complete treatment of Gettysburg's sewage have been prepared and are in the process of ·evision, preparatory to approval y the Sanitary Water Board. It is expected that, within an appropriate time, the additional units will be constructed. There are no sewers in Fairfield nor in the villages draining to the Monocao, according to the Pennsylvania Health Department, which adds that apparently the residual pollution in the Monocacy as it leaves Pennsylvania is limited and that steps have been taken to reduce this to a practical minimum. Little Industrial Waste The Pennsylvania Board also said that so far as industrial wastes are concerned, the situation is comparable. The cannery at Orrtanna is lagooning its wastes and not discharging them to the stream.

Maryland Pollution The Maryland Water Pollution Control Commission conducts per iodic investigations of all industries and sewage plants throughout the state and no special emphasis has been given the Monocacy Basin over any other area. The Commission also pointed out in the bulletin distributed at Westminster that "our investigations will continue, regardless of the activities of other agencies or programs.
