He outlined desirable condi- tions for locating a dumping ground in an area, as lack of rain and being near major highways, as well as others. The EPA representative al- so issued a warning about the villain of the industrial waste business--the illegal dumper. Sorgu explained that some firms will contract with com- panies that have industrial waste and then transport the waste to an uninhabited area, and then dump it along the roadside and into culverts. EASTERN COLORADO PLAINSMAN, THURS., NOV. 6, 1980, HUGO, CO., PAGE 3 in He cited one case in North Carolina, where a truck dump- ed contaminated waste in a ditchline, and, before the problem could be corrected, the government had to remove thousands of tons of dirt. In Colorado, there are 580 industries that generate haz- ardouswaste, and there are some $68 treatment-and-dis- posal sites in the state. Sorgu added that, before a site can be established, the lo- cal county commissioners had to give the go-ahead, it was not just up to the federal and state officials. He also commented lightly on pesticides used by farmers, and that new guidelines were being established all the time, and that rules for industry and the individual farmer were dif- ferent. Several people questioned Sorgu about the EPA and its relationship with agriculture. One man said, "The farmer has good reason for mistrust- ing the EPA; because of res- trictions on aerial spraying, the sheepman in Colorado is not what he used to be." Also, Dennis Stohe, state lobbyist for the Farm Bureau, asked, "Are we sincerely con- trolling the waste ? " There was much discussion about the restrictions on spraying, to control the grass- hopper problem, that many faced a few months ago. Following the program, new officers were elected for the Lincoln County Farm Bureau. They include: Harry Kravig, president; Russell Nickell, vice president; and Iris Nick- ell, recording secretary. Named to the board of direc- tors were Jerry Seymour, Louis Wezel, Gilbert Holmes and Bill Solze. Laura Solze was named women's chair- man. There were some 55 people attending the meeting.
