STATE MEDICO INVES
Wbtls Preset Pollution Is Too Slight
To Oe Dangerous, Precedent Dad
To Be Stopped No Moro
Sewage- In Crooked River.
Dr. Calvin S. yhito, Secretary of
Die State Board of .Health, came in
from Portland with1 Dr. U. C. Coe
Friday. The purpose of hia visit
was to familiarize himself with Cen
tral Oregon conditions, especially in
reference to the pollution of the
Deschutes River from drainage and
' This matter has been brought to
his attention particularly through
complaints he has received from
Laidlaw and local people, he says.
Also, the recent passage of the bill
prohibiting any pollution of the Des
chutes brings this matter to a head.
"We have investigated pretty
thoroughly," said Dr. White, Sat
urday. "It appears that the present
pollution of the river from Bend
drainage Is extremely slight; in fact,
so little as hardly to be worth con
sidering, and of practically no dan
ger. However, with the rapid in
crease in the bJzo of the town and
the population of the country de
pendent upon the Deschutes for
water supply, it is imperative that
even the present slight pollution be
stopped. This the new law compels,
and the state must enforce, if the
city does not. It's a matter of
checking a bad precedent for future
violators, more than anything else."
The only present trouble, it is
understood, is caused by overflow
from inadequate septic tanks used
by dwellings in block 3, facing the
After calling attention to the
unique position of the Deschutes, as
furnishing the sole water supply for
such a vast territory, Dr. White ad-
"One thing that surprised me
was to find that Bend is the only
Central Oregon town actually on the
Deschutes. Somehow, from adver
Using literature I had gained the
impression that the towns north
were on the banks of the river."
Saturday night Drs. White and
Coe attended a meeting and ban
quet of the Crook County Medical
Association at Princville. All the
licensed physicians in the county
were present, excepting Drs. Fcr
rell, of Bend and Hosch, of Red
mond. Dr. White took up with the
county seat medicos the necessity of
caring for Prineville's sewage other
wise than putting it in Crooked
River, which is now contrary to
state law. It is understood the
Princville city council are to . take
action in the matter at once.
