Mayor of the City of Atlanta
Atlanta, Georgia
Dear Mr. AlJen;
Please pardon the taxing of your office with this matter
again but we have called it to the attention of the Office of
Stream Pollution in the Health Department so often that it is
no longer receptive to our reports.
This letter addresses itself to the problem of Proctor
Creek. The portion which flows near the North West portion
of Bankhead Avenue and through our yards is badly polluted.
This matter was called to your attention in April 1966,
by the Gertrude Place Community Club, after which we enjoyed
a relief from the foul odor,insects and unsightly view which
this stream brings. For this we are grateful. However,
since late summer, we have again been plagued with this problem.
It is now constantly visibzy polluted and reported illnesses
have been attributed to the faul odor.
Again we solicit your help in correcting this matter.
Very truly,
~ rE{~

Dear Mrs. Brown:
Thank you for your letter of January 9, 1967, advising this office of
pollution problems on Proctor Creek.
This office is aware of continuing problems in this area and we regret
the inconvenience that the matter is causing.
Steps have been taken to replace the Bellwood Outfall Sewer which is
one of the serious problem sources and completion of this work during
late summer, should alleviate the troubles to some extent.
The second serious problem that we face in eventual removal of
pollution from Proctor Creek is not so simple or quickly solved. This
is the condition created by periodic combined storm and sanitary discharges to Proctor Creek from Interceptors at North Avenue and Greensferryo Removal of overflows from these old "combined sewer" facilities
is well in the future though presently under study.
I
I hope that the Bellwood Outfall relief and other similar programs
presently underway will provide a degree of necessary relief to you
and your neighbors and assure you of the continued interest and
attention to this problem by your City Governmento
Yours very truly,
Ivan Allen, Jro
Mayor
