Atlanta, Georgia 30334 Dear Mr. Howard: T-hank you for your letter of November 1 7, forwarding a copy of "A Water Quality Study of Proctor Creek", outlining the biological condition of this stream. I am 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 stand_i:.,oint of both sanitary sewer overflows and general pollution due to combined storm and sanitary overflows corning 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 e xi sts 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 197 O, until such time as the diversion line from the Proctor Creek Ba sin into the Sandy Creek Basin and into the new enlarged Sandy Creek Water Pollution Control Plant is constructed . Detailed plans and specifications for the prop o sed system he ar 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 mentioned 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 construction 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 be_nefits until approximately 1971. The items mentioned previously are intended to provide a more imm e diate 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 . �

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 va rious s ewag e facilities have been constructed, remodeled and operated . We think it would be very ba d indeed if we should depart , in this instance, from the well- e stablished custom of having all municipalities and the County participate in the cons truction and operation of each facility on the pro-rata basis of its use of the fa cility . The suggestion which you ma de in your letter of July 7th, and the earlier agreem ent which apparently was prepared in your office, of course , have merit, but we feel tha t continua nce of a system which has wo rked w ell in the pa st not only will b e fa ir in this insta nce, but will have some value because it follow s an established custom . Anot her reason why w e feel this course of action should be followed is that we have other fa cilities, including FulCo, which should be t reated in the same m a nner . Undoubtedly in the futur e there will be other occasions where the County or the City will build the fac ility, but the cost of construction a nd maintenance will be s hared with other governments . Will you consider the matter and draw a pr oposal in l ine with the exi sting amendments t o the original contract? ~ ATM / h cc : Messrs . Carl Johnson, Har old Sheat1;, rytruly, F. . T .

  • Text: ,· . ,· U.S . DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR FEDERAL WATER POLLUTION CONTROL ADMINISTRATION PERTINENT AREAS FOR RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT STORM ·AND COMBINED SEWER POLWTION CONTROL . .. · 't··; ,·.,,··:i . .. . .. • . . . . !~ . • Ma.y, 1967 l I �,, . The problem of pollution from storm and combined sewers is one which has only recently begun to receive pro~er emphasis as a signif i cant pollution source. There are in the United States CNer 1900 ·... commun:l.ties with combined or partially combined sewerage systems serving some 59 million people. 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 equipment 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 CNerflow weirs, mechanical regulators, valves and other devices. They permit CNerflows 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 a gency for the purpose of assisting in the development of any project which will demonstrate a new or improved method of controlling the discharge into any waters of untreated or inadequately treated sewage or other wastes from sewers which carry storm water or both storm water and s ewage 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 toz Offi ce of Research a nd Development Federal Wat er Pollution Control Administration U.S. Depart ment of the Interi or 633 I ndiana Ave nu e , N.

Development of performance criteria needed in relationship to stream wat er quality s tandards I t should b e noted that the above outline i s not considered to be all-inclusive, since there may b e numer ous completely or i gi nal i deas which could b e added -- some of which may be more significant than any of those listed, Submiss i on of such ideas to t he Federal Water Pollution Control Administration is strongly encouraged. Some of t he t echnical areas out lined are currently under evaluation by means of either grant or contract projects, for exam.pler Most of the �.. 7 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. �

NIXON C h ief of Co n str u ction R OBE RT H. M O RRI SS ASST. C HIEF OF CONSTRUCT I ON 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 c01J1Dents are offered: 1. The request of the Emory Community Legal Services Center was discussed between this office and the State Water Quali ty 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. One 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. 2. 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 S-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. 3. Thia 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 upcoming year. 4. 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 th separate sanitary sewer system in the lower end of the Proctor Creek basin, and at the same time provide the nee saary leeway for the addition of some ten thousand population projected for this area due to the increased drive for housing. ATLANTA THE DOGWO O D CI T Y �- 2 Hon. Ivan Allen, Jr. 5. November 22, 1967 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, £,/uJJi.1&~~ Robert H. Morriss Director Water Pollution Control RBM:ck Enclosures �
