    EPA to halt Reading pollution
PHILADELPHIA, PA. -
The Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA)
has moved to stop the
discharge of a pollutant from
Reading, Pa. which has
produced foul odors and
taste in waters of the
Schuylkill River twice in
recent months.
Daniel J. Snyder, 111,
Regional Administrator,
said that substance which is
causing the problems is
suspected to come from the
Glidden-Durkee Division of
SCM Corporation located in
Reading. Glidden-Durkee
discharges its wastes into
the municipal sewage

system of Reading. The
wastes are treated at the
city's Fritz Island Sewage
Treatment Plant, and then
discharged into the
Schuylkill.
Discharges from the Fritz
Island plant on April 23 and
June 18 caused taste and
odor problems severe
enough that several drinking
water treatment plants on
the Schuylkill, including
Philadelphia's Belmont
Filtration Plant, had to close
their water supply intakes.
Snyder said that the City of
Reading, according to an
EPA permit issued to it for
operation of the Fritz Island

plant, has the responsibility
to monitor and report any
unusual discharge from the
plant. This includes a
discharge that originates
from one of the industlres
using the City's sewer
system.
In order to assure that
further noxious discharges
do not enter the Schuylkill,
the City of Reading was
ordered by EPA to install a
continuous sampling device
at a point prior to that at
which the wastes from
Purebred Charolais cattle
registered in Canada have
been officially recognized as
a breed by the U.S.
Department of Agriculture
(USDA), thereby becoming
eligible for duty-free import
into the United States.
Officials of USDA’s
Animal and Plant Health
Inspection Service (APHIS)
said recognition of the breed
by USDA will permit
pedigreed animals to be
granted free entry of ac
companied by certificates of
pure breeding. Such
recognition was made after
APHIS officials examined
and found satisfactory the
records and registration
rules of the Canadian
Charolais Association,
headquartered in Calgary,
Alberta, Canada,
USDA recognition had
been granted previously to 13
other breeds of cattle
registered in the Canadian
Live Stock Records, Ottawa;

Samples collected from this
device must be collected
every 24 hours and retained
for 48 hours. Whenever foul
taste or odors are discovered
coming from the Fritz Island

from Glidden-Durkee must
be analyzed and the results
reported to EPA.
The City was also ordered
to submit to EPA complete
reports on the April 23 and
