My concern is based on the following: 1) The Soil Conservation Service which is presently completing an extensive soil survey of the Snyderville Basin has concluded that most of the area bounded by the interstate, highway 248, : and the old ' ranch road, because of high water table, shallow depth of bedrock, and ' the shrinking and swelling nature of the soil, has severe to moderate limitations for residential development. A copy of the SCS findings is enclosed. 2) In light of the above Park City-Snyderville planning and zoning steering committee is recommending an agricultural zone for this area.- ; . . 3) Because of the adverse soil conditions and particularly par-ticularly the high water table of the area and it's vulnerability to shrinking and swelling, it occurs to me that a sewer line through the area would be very susceptable to infiltration and possibly exfiltration. If these concerns are justified and since the area is not well suited for residential developments, wouldn't it be more advisable to realign the proposed trunk line along the west side of highway 248 where residential and commercial development is more suitable and more likely? I the near future we will be proposing a master land use plan and a zoning ordinance for the Snyderville Basin area. Inasmuch as the placement of sewer lines will have a definite affect of land use activities, we hope that ; the sewer district board will be sensitive to and make plans that will be compatible with the county land use plans and zoning measures.. We hope to have the opportunity op-portunity to meet with you some time in the near future to discuss our proposed plans. How Moat It? What are you planning to do this summer? Del Alvey I'm going to go skate boarding with my sister and ride by bike. I'm also going to go on the Heber Creeper and maybe go on an airplane ride. My dad is going to go with me to shoot the new "22" he gave me for my birthday. Andrew Lovering I'm going to be making a bow and arrow with my granpa who's coming to visit. I may also try to make a kite. I'll do lots of reading I like the Hardy Boy books and stories that have animals talking the best.

PlaniWhg agriculture production the Commission Wolve's Owner Thanks P.C.P.D. tie S Dear Editor; I wish to thank the Park City Police Dept., especially Thayle Lund for the help they gave me in trying to locate niy two wolve's that excaped from their pen Thursday evening, May 20. The animals were able to crawl under the lence after the ground had settled from the recent rains. The Park City Police Dept., along with the Summit County Police Dept., the Wasatch County Sherrif's Department and the State Fish and Game Dept., were unlimited in their support and determination in aiding me in my search for the wolve's. These public servants, joined by local residents who called in reports concerning my wolve's did everything that was possible. As a motion picture wild animal trainer one must expect some hazards and circumstances that are beyond one's control. Un fortunetly, my two animals were shot late Saturday evening by a Thaynes Canyon resident who reported my wolve's had attacked his dogs. Chief Lund is a fine man who gave me courage when I had lost it. He knows how to handle people in . any circumstance. cir-cumstance. I am grateful for his support and encouragement en-couragement for helping me in a drastic situation. Thank you Gentlemen Very Much, L.W.

(from the Park City j Chamber of Commerce) i THE PROBLEM - ' j The Park City-Snyderyille area has ex perienced healthy growth since 1965, and especially during the last five years. Much . additional growth is expected during the next decade and beyond. Many areas in the Snyderville Basin have serious health hazard? ' due to the lack of a sewer system. Flow reports -of Park City's existing system indicate that ' due to growth and the amount of non-sewage water which gets into the system through old lines, broken lines and the necessity of some water taps to be left running to avoid freezing, the existing treatment plant is in violation of Federal and State water quality standards. ' Officials have allowed the "over-capacity" situation to exist while the sewer district was formed and plans for a new, regional treatment treat-ment plant were completed. THE TIME HAS NOW COME TO BUILD THE SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEM - A REGIONAL SEWAGE TREATMENT FACILITY! WHAT WILL BE BUILT - 1 1. Improvements to Park City sewer lines. ' 2. A main line about 12 miles long. 3. A new sewage treatment plant. Sewer lines within Park City which have the worst seepage problem will be replaced at a cost of about $160,000. The existing treatment ; plant will be bypassed and a new main line will follow highway 224 toward Snyderville, then North to Kimball Junction and Northwest parallel to 1-80 toward East Canyon. The treatment plant will be located near the curve where 1-80 turns West to Parley's Summit, but out of sight from the highway. The new treatment plant will provide the level of treatment necessary to meet State and Federal water quality standards and provide treatment capacity which will allow the area to grow to its full potential. It is projected that construction will begin immediately upon passage of the bond, with the plant accepting sewage in late 1977. WHAT IT WILL COST f The total cost of improvements is estimated at $4.4 million. The Environmental Protection Agency will pay 75 percent or $3.3 million. The remainder is to be financed locally through the sale of $1.1 million in general obligation bondi. WHY GENERAL OBLIGATION BONDS - General obligation bonds cost less to pay off. Two types of bonds are usually considered for this type of improvement general obligation 1 and. revenue. General obligation bonds have JUNE8.1976 " .

A lower interest rate 2. No revenue coverage requirement 3. Easier to sell to investors. . These advantages will allow the district to charge less to the sewer users for the improvements im-provements than if revenue bonds were used. Although the bonds are general obligation, it is anticipated that no taxes will be levied to pay off the bonds because the entire cost is projected to be paid through connection and service fees.

HOW MUCH FEES WILL BE INCREASED - To pay off the bonds, sewer connection fees Memorial Building, if interested, ages 13-16. have been raised 114 percent a single family home connection will cost $750 instead of $350. Monthly service charges will be increased from $3.35 to $5, an increase of $1.65 or 49 . percent. " ; . " ; -v" - , ; WELL BABY CLINIC A Well Baby Clinic will be conducted May 20 at the Memorial Bldg., from 9-10:30 a.m. CAN THESE HIGHER COSTS BE AVOIDED BY DEFEATING THE BOND? Should the bond election fail, State and Federal regulations would require that the sewage problem be solved somehow, but it is unlikely that independent systems scattered throughout the area would receive Environmental Environ-mental Protection Agency funding. This means that alternative projects would probably have to be financed 100 percent by the area involved without Federal help. ; WILL I BE REQUIRED TO CONNECT? County and State laws require that any buflding discharging sanitary or industrial waste connect to the sewer within 90 days after the sewer is available for use IF the sewer ' line is within 300 feet of the building. WILL THE MAIN LINE BE EXTENDED? Funding is included in the bond to permit extension of a line to the Summit Park boundary boun-dary if a plan for collection lines within the subdivision is presented prior to completion of the main system. Similar provisions are included in-cluded for an extension toward the Silver . Creek area. WHO CAN VOTE Those persons who are registered voters in districts 1, 2, 3, 5, 9, 10, and 12 who reside within the boundaries of the Snyderville Basin Sewer Improvement District may cast ballots on Tuesday, June 8 at the Summit County Memorial Building in Park City, from 7a.m. to 8 p.m. A map of the district is attached or is . available at 528 Main St., Park City.
