PAGE 2 • THE INTERMOUNTAIN NEWS • OCTOBER 26,2011 By BILL CAMPBELL HAUNTED HOUSE IN FALL RIVER MILLS U 2 Chicken? The bright orange poster reads. Halloween celebrants can tour two stories of ghostly and ghoulish fun at the Fall River Mills Fire Department building on Oct. 29 and 31. The third annual Haunted House is from 7 p.m. until ???? A second night was added because of last year's overflow crowd, according to Quincy Hatch, Hatch, Run Shannon and Bret Ellien created the eerie exhibit. Admission is adults $6 and $3 for kids under 12. Pro- ceeds benefit the Fall River Fire Department. Hatch promised an evening of frightful fun. STATE AGENCY LISTENS TO RESIDENTS, REVISES RULES Two and one-half years after shelving proposed state- wide regulations for on-site wastewater treatment sys- tems, commonly called septic systems, the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) is rolling out revised regulations in a series of statewide meetings. The northern California hearing is Friday at David Marr Theater, Shasta Learning Center, 2200 Eureka Way, Suite B in Redding. l]mes are 1 to 4 p.m. and 6 to 9 p.m. Each public hearing has identical content. SWRCB received significant opposition to the first set of regulations. An overflow crowd forced the cancella- tion of public hearings in Santa Rosa in February 2009. Thereafter, SWRCB sought public advice about the regu- lations. Prompted by legislation passed by the legislature in 2000, the rules regulate discharge wastes that impair or threaten to impair surface water or groundwater qual- ity. The new regulations affect only five percent of the property owners using septic systems, according .to David Clegern, public information officer, SWRCB. The first set of regulations affected all Calif. property owners using a septic system to dispose of human waste. Original regulations required testing on all septic tank and domestic water wells, which expected to cost home- owners $1,000 every 10 years. A replacement system was approximately $30,000 nearly 10 times current cost. Also, local agencies could not adopt rules for local con- ditions. New regulations exempt existing, functioning septic SYstems not located near a stream, river, or lake the State has identified as contaminated with bacteria and/or nitrogen related compounds. The board's website, issues/programs/owts/index.shtml, has a map tool to determine if property is affected by the new rules. Burney and Fall River Mills residents are served by public waste disposal systems. While McArthur residents have septic systems, according to the map, no nitrogen-compound or patho- gen impaired waters are located within 2,000 feet of the town. Checking two properties on Pittville Road had inconsistent results. Residence A is identified close to Beaver Creek, an impaired water source, while resi- dence B, which is actually closer to Beaver Creek, had no impaired waters. Map tests indicated Pit River and Hat Creek are not impaired waters. However, Clegern stated "certain reaches" on a body of water might be impaired while other sections are not impaired. He emphasized the map works best using a specific address. The caveat to the regulations is "the presence or absence of impaired waters within 2000 feet of a prop- erty does not constitute a final determination that system upgrades are required," states the board's website. The PIP said the state has to suspect a problem. "We have to come in and prove it." He said the state would interfere only if a local agency does not resolve a prob- lem. Clegern said, "septic is the problem, not agriculture pathogens." SAM FOX SLATED TO FINISH PCT TREK Sam Fox, a Rhode Island resident, featured in the Sept. 28 issue of The News and running/hiking/walking the Pacific Coast Trail (PCT) to raise money for Parkin- son's research, was nearing his destination this week- end: Earlier this month, near Reno, he was within striking distance of breaking the PCT speed-record, having hiked 1605 miles in 38 days, a pace of over 40 miles per day. A winter storm warning changed his plan to traverse the High Sierras. Significant amount of snow; sleet, ice and strong winter winds were predicted creating a haz- ardous, possibly catastrophic situation. Fox would have hiked nearly 400 miles alone in the wilderness in winter conditions before he would recon- nect with his support vehicle. A detour plan was devised. He hiked from Death Valley National Park's Badwater Basin, the lowest point in the continental United States, to the summit of Mt. Whitney, the highest peak in the con- tiguous 48 states. In a span of about 140 miles, he would go from 282 feet below sea level to 14,494 feet above sea level." He rejoined the trail, crossed the Mojave Desert and was scheduled to finish the adventure Tues- day morning. Fox ran/walked/hiked 2,265.5 miles at an average pace of 42.46 miles per day. According to his website, his achievement raised nearly $140,000 of the $250,000 goal. Contributions can be made on the web- site home page. Congratulations, Sam. IT'S OBVIOUS I DON'T SPEAK ITALIAN OK. I chuckled when I translated the subject of last week's column on Google's Translate website. The story was about Conrad Skaggs, a Cassel resi- dent, and his family bicycle ride in the Santa Rosa Gran rondo. However, I consistently wrote Gran Rondo: According to the GranFondoUSA website, Gran rondo is "big ride" in Italian. The Google Translate website says Gran rondo means "long-distance." In either case, an Italian Gran Rondo, according to Goes!e, is a Grand Rondo in English, definitely unrelated to bicycling. Hope you are chuckling, too. ......
