SWEAT, JR., Director of Governmental Liaison December 19, 1967 Mr. R. S. Howard, Jr. Executive Secretary State Water Quality Control Board 47 Trinity Avenue, S. W. Atlanta, Georgia 30334 Dear Mr. Howard: Thank you for your letter of November 17, forwarding a copy of "A Water Quality Study of Proctor Creek", outlining the biological condition of this stream. Jam sure that our Water Pollution Control Division will find this information most helpful in working toward relief of the pollution problems in this area. You should be advised that the City of Atlanta has undertaken several actions to improve the conditions of Proctor Creek from the standpoint of both sanitary sewer overflows and general pollution due to combined storm and sanitary overflows coming from the combined storm sewer system connected to that basin. I will briefly outline in the following paragraphs some of the major actions planned for the basin in order that your office may be kept continually posted. You and your staff will be advised further and in more detail regarding each project mentioned below. The City plans to provide a major temporary treatment facility in the vicinity of Hollywood Road to accommodate a major portion of the sanitary sewer overload that exists in that basin and to allow further development in the months ahead. This plant will be so designed that it may serve as an adequate treatment device for the period from mid-summer 1968 through mid-summer 1970, until such time as the diversion line from the Proctor Creek Basin into the Sandy Creek Basin and into the new enlarged Sandy Creek Water Pollution Control Plant is constructed. Detailed plans and specifi- cations for the proposed system near Hollywood Road will be provided to your office in the near future. December 19, 1967 Mr. R. S. Howard, Jr. Executive Secretary State Water Quality Control Board Page Two A contract was recently let to relieve a small portion of the Bellwood Outfall sewer which has badly deteriorated over the years of its use and is an area of frequent break-down and spill to Proctor Creek, This contract will be further extended immediately after the first of the year to provide for a similar relief to the lower end of the Bellwood Outfall and totally prevent overflows in this area. This was a major pollution point men- tioned in the report that you offered us. The items mentioned above are in addition to the major Water Pollution Control Improvement Program laid on in 1966 by the City of Atlanta which will eventually lead to a drastic reduction of pollutional effects on the Chattahoochee River due to the con- struction of major trunk sewer facilities and new or improved water pollution control plants at the R. M. Clayton and Sandy Creek site. Unfortunately, these major improvements cannot be expected to show marked benefits until approximately 1971. The items mentioned previously are intended to provide a more immediate relief to some particularly troublesome areas that exist at present or that can be anticipated as problem areas with the increasing development in this area. If this office can work with you in any way to further alleviate identifiable problem areas, please contact us immediately. Sincerely yours, Ivan Allen, Jr. Mayor IAJr:lp

  • Text: U.S. DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR FEDERAL WATER POLLUTION CONTROL ADMINISTRATION PERTINENT AREAS FOR RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT STORM AND COMBINED SEWER POLIUTION CONTROL May y 1967 The problem of pollution from storm and combined sewers is one which has only recently begun to receive proper emphasis as a signi- ficant pollution source. There are in the United States over 1900 iit communities with combined or partially combined sewerage systems ind serving some 59 million people. lee The discharge of polluting wastes from storm drainage systems and overflows from combined sewers serves as a distinct challenge to the ingenuity of minicipal officials, consulting engineers, universities and corporations engaged in research and development, as well as equip- ment manufacturers. Polluting discharges from combined storm and sanitary sewers occur during wet-weather periods when the carrying capacity of the sewers is exceeded due to the large amounts of storm water entering the sewers. The normal, or dry weather flow is prevented from overflowing continuously by means of overflow weirs, mechanical regulators, valves and other devices. They permit overflows to occur when sewer flows reach a predetermined level. Separation of the storm water from the sanitary sewage can be at least a partial answer to the problem since if the systems are completely separated the most concentrated waste load can be conveyed to and treated at the waste treatment plant. We have come to recognize in recent years, however, that surface runoff also contains significant amounts of pollutants - some cases nearly as much as sewage - so that separation of sanitary wastes is now believed to be only a partial solution to the total problem. Congress had these factors in mind when the current storm and combined sewer pollution control demonstration grants were authorized. Section 6 (a) (1) of the Federal Water Pollution Act authorizes "---- grants to any State, municipality, or intermunicipal or interstate agency for the purpose of assisting in the development of any project which will demonstrate a new or improved method of controlling the dis- charge into any waters of untreated or inadequately treated sewage or other wastes from sewers which carry storm water or both storm water and sewage or other wastes ----." The Federal Government can provide up to 75 percent of the estimated reasonable cost of individual research, development and demonstration projects. The applicant must provide assurances that local funds are or will be available to pay for the remainder of the cost. Application for contract support for pertinent research and development projects will also be considered, The necessary application forms and more detailed information concerning the Program can be obtained by writing tor Office of Research and Development Federal Water Pollution Control Administration U.S. Department of the Interior 633 Indiana Avenue, N.

Development of improved construction materials and methods 6. Development of performance criteria needed in relationship to stream water quality standards It should be noted that the above outline is not considered to be all-inclusive, since there may be numerous completely original ideas which could be added -- some of which may be more significant than any of those listed. Submission of such ideas to the Federal Water Pollution Control Administration is strongly encouraged. Some of the technical areas outlined are currently under evaluation by means of either grant or contract projects, for example: Most of the more conventional storage techniques including the use of tanks with pump~back to the interceptor, surface storage ponds, treatment lagoons are underway. More unique applications of storage principals such as localized "upstream" storage to prevent overloading of "downstream" sewers need further development. The use of chlorine to disinfect storm and combined sewer discharges: is included in several projects, therefore new disinfection techniques suitable for application to high volume -- short duration flows need exploration. Similar examples can be found in any of the major technical areas listed. The brief descriptions of existing demonstration projects will serve as additional examples of work being done. Any further duplication of these control methods will be minimized as much as possible to permit activation of projects designed to explore technical areas not now being evaluated. Some duplication will be in order so as to provide evaluation of function under a suitable variety of hydrological conditions.

Morriss, Asst. Chief of Construction 301 City Hall Atlanta, Ga. 30303 Dear Mr. Morriss: We have delayed answering your letter of July 7th concerning the Long Island Creek Pumping Stations because we wanted to review the original contract for the Metropolitan Sewer System, and subsequent amendments under which the various sewage facilities have been constructed, remodeled and operated. We think it would be very bad indeed if we should depart, in this instance, from the well-established custom of having all municipalities and the County participate in the construction and operation of each facility on the pro-rata basis of its use of the facility. The suggestion which you made in your letter of July 7th, and the earlier agreement which apparently was prepared in your office, of course, have merit, but we feel that continuance of a system which has worked well in the past not only will be fair in this instance, but will have some value because it follows an established custom, Another reason why we feel this course of action should be followed is that we have other facilities, including FulCo, which should be treated in the same manner. Un- doubtedly in the future there will be other occasions where the County or the City will build the facility, but the cost of construction and maintenance will be shared with other governments. Will you consider the matter and draw a proposal in line with the existing amendments to the original contract? \io truly, AX T. McDonald, Director, J ° ATM/h Public Works Department cc: Messrs. Carl Johnson, Harold Sheats

  • Text: Mr. R. S. Howard, Jr. Executive Secretary State Water Quality Control Board 47 Trinity Avenue, S. W. Atlanta, Georgia 30334 RE: Letter dated September 28, 1967, requiring formal schedule for completion of projects relative to the abatement of pollution on the Chattahoochee River. Dear Mr. Howard: In response to the above referenced letter, the City of Atlanta has compiled necessary documents to provide you with schedules outlining: (1) Submission of an engineering study (2) Scheduling of financing arrangements (3) A schedule for submission of final engineering plans and specifications (4) Aschedule for the construction of waste treatment facilities These documents are submitted in order to comply with your desire to have such material by October 20, 1967, and are intended to indicate the efforts of the City of Atlanta in complying with the State and Federal Directives relative to the provision of secondary waste treatment for effluents discharged to the Chattahoochee River on or before July ls 1971, The engineering study referred to in paragraph 1 above, was submitted to your office on December 30, 1965, and remains substantially in effect as a reflection of the problems and the construction needs for the abatement of pollution on the Chattahoochee River eminating from the R. M. Clayton Water Pollution Control Plant, the Sandy Creek WPC Plant, and the Utoy WPC Plant, each of which are the property of and under the direct control of the City of Atlanta. A similar engineering study entitled "Report on Sewarage System Improvements for Fulton County, Georgia" prepared by Wiedeman and Singleton Engineers with the date of December 1965, reflects a completed requirement for an engineering study to determine the needs for plant improvements at the Camp Creek WPC Plant and the Fulco WPC Plant; both of which are principally owned by unincorporated Fulton County while being operated by the City of Atlanta. Fulton County officials will submit further data relative to financing, final engineering plans and specifications, and construction schedules for these two facilities. With reference to financing arrangements that are necessary to provide waste treatment facilities referred to above, I am sure that you are aware that the City of Atlanta took the necessary actions late in 1966 to provide an adequate revenue base in the form of sewer service charges, such that the improvements and expansions to the facilities referred to above can be carried out in compliance with the schedule to be discussed in later paragraphs of this letter. Appendix 3 to this letter reflects the financing plan of the City of Atlanta to accomplish the construction schedule reflected in other segments of this letter. A similar financing plan will be employed to provide the City's share of expansions and improvements to the Fulco and Camp Creek WPC Plant which will be mentioned in a similar letter forwarded to your office by Fulton County. It should be pointed out that a large portion of the financing plans of the City of Atlanta and other metropolitan communities were and are based upon anticipated financial assistance from the State and Federal Government in the design and construction of the necessary facilities to accomplish the abatement of pollution on the Chattahoochee River. The Georgia Water Quality Control Board should recognize that all committments made in the past and at this time are made with an eye toward available federal funds and with the serious hope that the State Government will take the necessary steps to meet its obligation in this regard. It should also be noted that any reduction in available funding from the presently authorized federal levels will have a significant effect both upon starting time and the completion time of projects scheduled and provided for in this letter. The schedule for submission of final engineering plans and specifications and the scheduled start and completion of waste treatment facilities are reflected on Appendix 1 to this letter. This appendix indicates on a graphical schedule basis the proposed dates for these critical phases of pollution abatement and reflects the programmed time for provision of secondary treatment in compliance with your previous directives. The City of Atlanta is committed through previous actions of the Aldermanic Board to the completion of these facilities in the most expeditious manner possible. This office will work with that Board in every way possible to attain the objective of reduced water pollution on the Chattahoochee River and to provide a more healthful environment for Atlanta. If this office can be of any further assistance to you in this regard, please advise. Yours very truly, Ivan Allen, Jr. Mayor City of Atlanta 40 te ) Ewsi neer rag & Couttiry Gh; ou D6 lic dule rp Arp tee Fuadiu 2 Keg viremeyh Sekhe dule App th S ria WAKE i be 5 | E +

MORRISS ASST. CHIEF OF CONSTRUCTION Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr. Mayor City of Atlanta City Hall Dear Mayor Allen: With regard to the attached letter and report from the State Water Quality Control Board, the following comments are offered: 1. 2. 36 4. The request of the Emory Community Legal Services Center was discussed between this office and the State Water Quality Control Board prior to the delivery of a copy of the report to that Service Center. It is apparent that this group is working in conjunction with some of the residents of the Proctor Creek basin in an effort to speed some solutions to the many problems that they visualize in that area. Ome of the problems concerns itself with the high level of pollution and the flooding problems associated with the Proctor Creek area which have been problems of long standing and some of which will remain for a long time in the future, I fear. The City of Atlanta has a working plan to provide relief from sanitary sewer overflows and the worst elements of the pollution load in Proctor Creek, but unfortunately that plan, as programmed in 1963, 64 and 65, required a 5-year time period for a reasonable degree of relief. This is not satisfactory, in light of the recent desire for increased low-rent housing areas which have a great potential in the land resources available in this basin. This office has revised its plans relative to the reduction of pollution in the Proctor Creek basin in an effort to conform with the desires of the administration relative to low-rent housing in this area and have provided for some temporary relief to existing and projected problems during the up- coming year. A major item in this program is the $250,000.00 temporary treatment facility proposed in the Water Pollution Control Division's 1968 budget. This facility is intended to prevent the overflow of untreated sanitary sewage from the separate sanitary sewer system in the lower end of the Proctor Creek basin, and at the same time provide the necessary leeway for the addition of some ten thousand population projected for this area due to the increased drive for housing. ATLANTA THE DOGWOOD CITY Hon. Ivan Allen, Jr. November 22, 1967 5. There are several other problem areas in the Proctor Creek basin that will receive attention during late 1967 and early 1968. This office will be glad to brief you on problem areas and proposed solutions in this area at your convenience. I trust that this will provide you some general information relative to the report enclosed and enable you to have a talking knowledge of the problem at hand, Yours very truly, foal - f Mer ed Robert H. Morriss Director Water Pollution Control RHM?ck ‘Enclosures
