" Septic Tanhs on One Acre Lots The McHonry County^^ ard of Supervisors eked the r^Kjtion in the size of the lots in the Bard Subdivision which is located near Crystal Gardens at the west end of Oystal Lake. The jS Ivision was first laid out with ^cre lots with septic tanks, no sewers curbs or guttei-s. There was much talk of the improvement of the county laws which first allowed lots of 1,200 squaro feet then 2100 squaro feet. Ernest Schroeder, Algonquin said that the time will come when ev¬ en an acre will not be large enough for a septic tank and sew¬ or sytems will have to be put in. Robt. OJion, Nunda stated he could not see how this making of smaller lots could be of advantage to the conmiunity, and it was said that "this will only be a means to make more money for the subdi- vidci-" [which is w^hat the NEWS has long advocated 1. It was said that this land has a typt^raphy which lends itself to septic tanks as there is much gravel. Nothing was said about all of the small lakes whk'h accept some of the drainage from a g^ravel soil. There was also nothing said about where the refuse from the septic tanks was to be put when they were cleaned by a professionjd septic tank deaner. Dairies Having Disposal I'robleins Two dairies, the Dean's Milk in Chemung and the Borden's MUk in Woodstock are having problems wiUi the disposal of the whey waste as well as the first wash water from the cheese. Operators of two of the land fills were said to have refused to take the whey waste. It was stated that the Bordon plant plans to put up a treatment plant and that in the meantime they plan to use more chlorine in their water type waste. Frances Kuhn, Woodstock mayor, later staled in an interview that the Bordon Company is now haul¬ ing away two or three loads of wiiey daily. She affirmed the placing of more chloreno in the waste water. Emest Schroeder, Alg<»)quin sUted that he recalled the trouble that Crysttd Lake had had at a pirevious date when 25 or 30 years ago they took, in a yea^t plant, becouse It would give jSbs to 25 or 30 people. He saki that they now mostly solved this prob¬ lem though al some times of the year there is still a small amount of trouble. I>and fill problem studied "Where tc put it" came up again in the Supervisors meeting when the McHenry County Regional planning visited the land fill pro¬ jects on the county, on April 28. Tho first to he visited near Har¬ vard in section 32 of Alden Town¬ ship. This was reported in excel¬ lent condition with a capacity for many years. It is located on a little used highway out ot sight with neighbors and urban population ideal. The site at Marengo on Route 23 is not a landfill and no garbage is delivered. Aw>liances, brush and trees may be dumped here and are covered when fill is available. It is visable from the highway and is on the ban.ks of the Kishwaukee river. The Crystal Lake land fill kwa- ted on the Wllbrant property on Virginia St. extended is good for many years. It is visable from the highway, but there is plenty of fill available. It is excellent accwding to population and buildings as there are none near. The Woodstock site is visaWf from the hi^way and presents a ridged "houskeeping" problem which requiries constant inspec¬ tion, because of the nearness of highway and population. It was recommended that all pits have enough business to em¬ ploy at least one full tfane em¬ ployee and heavy equipment. Lake Kllarney Sabdlvtelon Change Approved The Lake Kilamey UnR no 3 plat was presented by attorney Richard Zukowski. The change va¬ cated a part of a street and nnde some of the lots bigger. It was ap¬ proved. The Bruns petition was re¬ turned because of the unfavorable condition of the soil regarding sep¬ tic tanks.
