NWARPC Approves Three Area Grant Applications Thursday SPHINGDALE -- The Nprth-| e s I Arkansas Regional lanning Commission opened s regular meeting Thursday ight to the Illinois River 'roperty Owners who showed arts of two films on wastc- 'ater utilization in agriculture. The property owners asso- iation, guided by their attorney ohn Elrod of Siloam Springs, s opposed to the regional basin Ian for wastewater treatment cities lat would dump the area's using effluent (treated wastewater) nlo the Illinois River. The NWAHPC adopted the Ian earlier this year following a public hearing on the matter. But, as NWARPC director .en Riley pointed out Thursday ight, the basin plan is not the 'final, set-in-concrete version, ol what will be in 20 years." Riley said the team ol cientists which drew up the asin plan did consider the ossibility of using wastewater o irrigate land but did not nclude it in the plan because he state health department, at lis lime, would not approve He pointed out that there will be technological and policy changes in waslewater treatment in the next few years. Before any construction is egun on wastewater treatment acililies, Riley said a Step I banning grant is obtained and used to s t u d y all treatment possibilities. EXPERTS SPEAK He said, "You don't say, 'Oh, we have limestone here. and it can't be done,' but 'we have limestone here and we have to do it carefully. 1 " Sheaffer was referring to recent criticism of Ihe plan in this area by persons fearing the region's geology and soil make-up would preclude the idea. SEES POSSIBILITIES Sheaffer also noted that most upon first hearing ol watcwater in agriculture At the. film showing attended «y about 75 persons, John Harsh, sanitary engineer from Gorman, Okla., and John R. say, "It's a great concept, but it won't work here." But Sheaffer said he thinks the nation will soon .begin to reclaim wastewater for recycling because t h e country is running out of resources. One of these resouces, crude oil, is being used to make nitrogen fertilizer, he said. Two and one quarter billion gallons of oil a year are used to make the nitrogen fertilizer that cities are dumping into their water sources. Treated wastewater is high in nitrogen and phos phorus. When used on land i is, a resource. Put into water it becomes a pollutant becaus it encourages the growth o aquatic plants to t h e extent where they remove the oxygen needed for fishlife. Sheaffer said he used to think the nation wanted clean water He doesn't operate under tha belief anymore. He said thi reason the nation will recycL wastewater instead of trying tc chemically treat and dispose o it is because the nation is going to need the resources found in wastewater. Sheaffer predicted'that" with! , ., Sheaffer, planning consultant rom Chicago, III., spoke. The two films, "The Living F i l t e r ' ' and "Wastewater Bonanza," explained the suc- c e s s f u l experiments and operations across the nation · in using treated wastewater to irrigate and fertilize forests, crop lands, and seeded strip mine spoil banks. Following the films, Sheaffer reminded the audience that wastewater utilization, on land was not a panacea but w a s often applicable, and where applicable was the least costly method of treating wastewater. Sheaffer noted that an area would have to be'closely studied in order to decide if the plan could be adopted there and how it should be adopted there. :he next decade, all municipa wastewater will be either sol to private enterprise or use on city croplands with the cit RENTALS JcSALB Fayelteville Drue E.

Oil Imports Said Responsible For Latest Papents Deficit WASHINGTON (AP)--Sharp,y higher prices for im- Sharply higher prices for imported oil tumbled the nation s 974 trade accounts to their biggest deficit on record for t h e first half of a year, the government reported today. : The Commerce Department said imports exceeded exports by $3;2 billion at a seasonally adjusted annual rate: Exports on the same basis were $92.6 sillion. Imports were $95.8 billion. The previous worst January to June on record was last year, when the trade accounts registered a $2.7 billion deficit. Petroleum alone accounted for one-quarter of the m o n e y he nation spent on import* over the first half of this year and a $1.7 billion deficit wat run up in the second quarter after the Arab oil embargo wai lifted. The nation «had: tallied a $6« million surplus in its trade accounts over the first three months of the year when the Arab oil embargo was in effect. The embargo went off in mid- March. The effective' price of imported oil shot up by. 27 per cent, due primarily to higher royalties imposed by foreign governments, and the volume of imports went up 10 per cent above the previous three months, the report said. receiving the revenues from the larger - yielding and'more protein-laden crops.
