2A Northwest Arkansas TIMES, Sun., April 28, 1974 FAYinHVILLK, ARKANSAS Wafer Quality Study (CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1) formance of cxisling treatment facilities and their capacity to meet future needs. PLANT PROBLEMS Based on pre-1372 water quality standards, five of Ihe J3 existing planls can not presently produce an acceptable e f f l u e n t (wastewalcr after purifying treatment). Three plants are now operating at their maximum capacity, and five have some excess capacity to allow them to expand future operations. The report noted that it may become necessary to use tertiary treatment systems to produce higher quality effluents in order to protect the quality of the waters into which the effluent is emptied. The chemical removal of phosphorous (a nutrient which contribules lo the growth of algae in area waters) could be accomplished for 90 per cent of the nulrient in municipal wastewater. But this added expense would have to be weighed against the fact that , , water sources other lhan treal- ' ' m,enl plants contribute a larger percentage of the nutrient load than city Ireatment facilities. The study showed that 72 per cent of phosphorous put in to Beaver Reservoir, the area's major source of drinking water, can be attributed to water that has run oft from agricultural areas. Approximately GO per cent of the nitrogen (another nutrient producing rapid algal growth in waters) in Beaver can be traced back to agricultural runoff. Only 20 per cent of the nitrogen and 21 per cent of the phosphorous found in Beaver can be attribuled to municipal wastewaters. The remaining nutrient levels were traced to urban runoff and non-agrl cultural runoff. SOLID WASTE As well as dealing with Ihe liquid discharge al westewater Ireatment plants, each facility has to dispose of large amounls of solid material -- sludge. Methods used in treating sludge in Northwest Arkansas include anaerobic digestion (wilh the production of methane) with sand-drying b e d s , vacuum filtralion of raw sludge wilh disposal in a landfill or by incineration, and oxidation with sand-drying beds. .·--. Since there was some concern that direct burial of sludge in a landfill (such as at Fayette- · v i 11 e ) could contaminate groundwater and nearby surface water, engineers tested the leachate from the landfill and found that it had negligible effect on the White River or the ground water outside of the immediate landfill area. During Ihe study of wastewater trealment plants, it was noted that small town facilities were "typically unstaffed or understaffed and consequently had difficulty in consistently producing a high quality effluent," In the final report, a regional o r districl aulhorily is r e c o m m e n d e d to operate regional or dislrict plants from a central office. Combining several towns into one waste- waler Irealment plant would produce a higher quality of treatment at a lower per unit cost. Based on a relative cost study of 93 alternatives for the area's wastewater Ireatment, it was shown that "a system can be worked out that produces a single plant that is large enough to justify sufficient personnel to efficiently operate the plant and result in lower unit costs to the participating cities than If they (the cities) continued to operate their own facilities." ; REDESIGNATION SOUGHT . The report's recommended regional wastewater treatment system for Northwest Arkansas would ask the federal Environmental Protection Agency for A redesignation of a segmenl of the lllinnois River that woulc allow a lower minimum ·dissolved oxygen level than the Tiver s current classification ;calls for. Engineers said the redesigna- tion "will riot degrade the present water quality In the :stream and will still allow for the protection of native aquatii biota (planls and animals)." ·' In the recommended Ireat ent syslem. two large waste water treatment plants would be constructed on the Illinois River. The eastern plant near S a v o y would treat al Wa .^ esva 'f f r o m th e eastern half of Washington and Bento: Counties and Ihe western hal of Carroll and Madison Conn ties. The western plant con strucfed on the river near Slloam Springs, would Ireat al wastewaler from the western portions of Ihe two counties. Because of their distances rom cither of the Iwo central ilants, Hunlsville and Eureka springs would operate their own TUtnicipal Irealment facilities. Implementation o f the ecommended plan would be ihased so thai existing treat- rient plants could be used until hey become obsolete or too mall for the daily sewage load. 'ho effluents from the in- ividual plants still in use would pumped to the new plants or discharge into the Illinois tiver. Eventually all present plants .ould be phased out and eplaccd wilh the two large Jlants on the river. As a part f this recommended plan, a vater supply line from Beaver leservoir to Siloam Springs vould be required. COST ESTIMATE C a p i t a l costs for im- ilementing the plan would be il2,85G.OCO and operating costs o 1990 would be $11,698,000 for tie region, The alternate plan would ivide the region into four dis- ricls for waslewater treatment. ""he districts correspond to -lajor drainage basins and opulation centers. Five multiple city plans 'ould be set up in three of ie four districts. In the asternmost district (porlions of ladison and Carroll Counes), singl ecity plants would be et up at Eureka Springs and Huntsville. The Northwest District plant ·ould serve Gravette and )ecalur. The North Central Jistnct plant would serve Sentonville, Centerton Pea Ridge and Rogers. The Ihree multiple city plants in the Central District would be ocated near Johnson, Spring- iale and Fayetteville. Single city plants would be et up at Lincoln. Prairie Jrove, Gentry and Siloam ipnngs. The cost of the alterative plan is much higher than je recommended plan's cost, ^or the alternative system 17,268.000 would be needed in apital costs and $38,161.000 in perating costs would be eauired through 1989 During the study, engineers ncountered several problems n trying to find ways to maintain the quality of the almost pristine" streams and ther water supplies The r o t e c t i o n of the water esources in Northwest Ar- :ansas was the primary, goal f the plan and all phases of he study were directed toward hat. SEPTIC TANK THREAT Engineers discovered that eptic tanks .are prime threats o the area's ground and sur- ace water quality. Many area veils were tested and found to nave coliform bacteria present. Cohforni bacteria are con- idered to indicate possible eeal contamination and should e absent from a safe drinking »ater source, the report said Also the septie tank system r disposal was found to be e 1 a 1 1 v e 1 y ineffective with egards to nutrient removal rom the wastes. Only one type f soil (chertv) in this area roduced what might be con- i d e r e d "good removal." h o s p h o r o u s a n d other nutrients entering ground and urface water are potential dangers because they speed up he eutrophication process Beaver Reservoir was found p be polluted by septic tanks S1epUc ,. tank drainage fields along the reservoir shores were believed to be defective so the J ? y .A et u ?

Fulbright's (CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1) )issenter," published in 1968 by "3oubleday Co. In the 28 years since he made be statements, Fulbright's po ition in the seniority systenr as changed. He now rank ifth in total seniority, he ' i ourth in seniority in the con rolling party, and next year he vill be fourth over-all. He also is chairman of tin 'oreign Relations Committee me of 17 outstanding com mittees in the Senate. He ha icen chairman since 1959. Some other aspects of th syslem are similar to those o 946: The Senate has 14 mem ers over the age of 70 and i ms 11, counting Fulbright, wh are in the 65-70 age bracket. Fulbright told the Farm Bu ·ean Federation meeting las Vednesday that the voter vere responsible for his 3 years of Senate seniority. "Yo fave it to me by re-electin me," he said. In this campaign, Fulbrigh las not called the seniority sys em good, per se, nor has h described it as undesirable. He has said, however, tha seniority is the system used i Congress and that, as it hap ens, this seniority has been jlessing to Arkansas because he lengthy tenure of member of the state's congressional de egation.
