Before State PSC SWEPCO De/enck Local Plant LITTLE ROCK (AP) Southwestern Klectric. Power Co. :and the Arkansas Electric Cooperative- Corp. defended Wednesday the effects of their proposed coal-fired power plant near. Gentry ori the water supply of the area. · The remarks were contained ~ in= stateinerifs presented to the A r k a n s a s Public Service Commission.. State .agencies have expressed concern. over the effect of the $100 million plant : on nearby waters. As a result of questions raised by the state agencies anc others, the PSC declared the statement on the nlant deficient and ordered them to answer additional questions. The state Pollution Control and Ecology Department also expressed reservations about the short stack on the plant. They suggested that the 241-foot stack would result in greater downwind concentrations '. of pollutants than had been predicted.. The utilities disputed that Wednesday. The utilities plan to form a 531 acre lake by damming Little Flint Creek rather than buik cooling towers. The Pollution Control and Ecology Department and th Arkansas Ecoloflv Center hat laid that .the lake would at imes pre-empt the entire flow of the creek and they wanted o know what the downstream effect would be. SEPCO-ARKCO replied that after the dam was built seepage would be one to two cuhi? feet per second which would probably exceed the present..-low flow. The utilities also said that the firm that was designing the lake had said that no leakage from the cooling lake was anti cipated. The companies said that groundwatw wells and springs would not become contaminalec hrough seepage and runoff. They also rejected contentions that there would be unacceptable thermal pollution from the use of the lake. Southwestern Electric said i was planning to contract will Ihe city of Siloam Springs to buy. additional water from the city's-lake on Flint Creek tc provide an alternate source o water for the lake.
