Mrs. Hazel H. Brown
847 Gertrude Place, N. W.
Atlanta, Georgia 30318

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
te some extend

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 Greensferry. Removal of
overflows from these old "combined sewer'' facilities is well
in the future, though presently under study.

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 Government.

Sincerely yours,

Ivan Allen, Jr.
