i ivc luwr ib iu Participate In Sewer Auth ority Talks BY LYNN CARLSON Representatives of Shallotie, Hol den Beach and Ocean Isle Beach will meet March 30 to discuss the possibility of becoming members of the South Brunswick Regional Water and Sewer Authority. The authority currently has six members, three each representing the towns of Calabash and Sunset Beach, who are pursuing govern ment grants and loans to construct a S25 to S30 million wastewater treat ment system. Consulting engineers working for Calabash and Sunset Beach have in vited representatives of all five town governments to a meeting they say is to "discuss the (authority's) role as a regional wastewater manage ment and regional environmental entity structured to serve the five communities." The meeting will take place at 6 p.m. at the 911 Emergency Building in the Brunswick County Govern ment Complex at Bolivia. "There has been no commitment on anyone's part," engineer Joseph Billups of Powell Associates said in a Tuesday telephone interview. "We nad a similar meeting about a year ago with Calabash, Sunset Beach and Ocean Isle Beach, and we told them when Calabash and Sunset fig ured out what they wanted to do, we'd get (all five towns) together to discuss it." He said plans are to "discuss the possibility of perhaps becoming members of the authority or to be come involved in an environmental strategy for the entire area." Listed on the engineers' agenda as areas of discussion are: ?concept of formation; ?service and planning area; ?member communities and their in volvement; ?contractual role of communities; ?potential grant and loan funding; ?state and county involvement; and ?request to Gov. (Jim) Hunt for fi nancial assistance under the Reg ional Planning Act and a possible stale demonstration program. After a brief introduction, the floor will be open to questions, ac cording to the memo inviting the municipal officials to the meeting. The engineers also said they arc preparing a draft letter to the gover nor and other state officials asking for help and endorsement of the re gional sewer program. "This request, if endorsed by all five communities at the meeting, will be sent to the governor for im mediate action," the memo con cludes. Last week, the owner of the Caro lina-Blythc sewer system?which the authority would purchase under the engineers' plan?said the com pany will no longer deal with con sultants. Coleman Burnett, speaking to the Calabash Board of Commis sioners, criticized unnamed consul tants as appearing "more interested in their present and long-term fees" than negotiating fairly to buy the utility. Billups responded that Powell Associates has "no fee inter est whatsoever" in the negotiations. Burnett also told the Calabash board that his $4.5 million asking price for the utility is not negotiable. The Blythc plant serves Carolina Shores residents and other commu nities near the state line. Its purchase is a cornerstone of the sewer sys tem's first phase as planned by Powell Associates.

Above, as Saturday's wind driven high tide reached its peak, canals spilled over and connected,covering streets, unseating floating docks front their moorings and flooding under-home storage areas. The tide remained at flood stage for more than an hour before slowly receding against southerly winds of near hurricane force with even higher gusts. Below, Sunday dawned on an extraordinarily low tide which remained that way for several hours, exposing extensive storm damage to docks and canals heavily littered with blown-off shingles, construction debris and other storm-tossed flotsam.
