Risk of power shortage
rises with temperatures
North Carolinians are faced with the possibility of brownouts across the state if
current demands on the system are kept up, says a Duke Power official
The recent heat wave has taxed Duke Power facilities to the limit, and the strain
on power generators coupled with equipment malfunctions led to a plea for
voluntary conservation efforts last week by Duke Power. Consumer response to the
plea averted brownouts.
Benny McPeak of.Duke Power attributed the equipment failure to three sources:
the Blues Creek generator outside Winston-Salem, the Plant Marshall steam
generator at Lake Norman, and a nuclear power station in South Carolina. All
three stations contribute to the state's power supply.
"We're still in a critical state. Until we get all the plants back in service, we're still
in a questionable situation," said McPeak. Duke Power is currently operating
under a 5 per cent voltage reduction.
The critical time is between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m., said McPeak. Consumers are
urged to avoid using dishwashers, clothes washers and dryers, using hot water, and
to cutback on their overall power use during those hours.
for emergency water
Emergency sources of water are now being
considered by the Orange Water and Sewer
Authority (OWASA) as the water shortage in
Chapel Hill and Carrboro grows more critical.
Restrictions on water use have not greatly
reduced total consumption. Nearly 5.5 million
gallons were used on Monday, with .3 million
gallons being pumped in from Durham.
Haw River, Eno River. Lake Orange, and Cane
Creek are being discussed by OWASA members
as possible sources of untreated water. Treated
water might be purchased from Hillsborough.
Everett Billings ley, OWASA executive director,
said he hopes to make recommendations on
emergency alternatives at tonight's OWASA
meeting. "It is questionable if the alternative
sources will meet our current needs," he said,
"much less provide much capacity as far as taking
care of future growth. These are emergency-type
solutions because of the critical situation we are in.
The long term solution is still Cane Creek."
OWASA's plans to build a reservoir at Cane
Creek have been delayed because of protests by
residents of the Cane Creek area. The issue is now
before the courts.
Hillsborough's Board of Commissioners
Monday authorized Mayor Fred Cates to
negotiate water sales with OWASA. Cates said
that the tow n can sell tw o million gallons of water
H illsborough's treatment plant has a capacity of
three million gallons a day. but residents use onlv
one million gallons daily. Cates said the plant's
capacity might be increased to 4.5 million gallons
OWASA will choose alternative water sources
according to the availability and quality of the
water, the cost of pumping, and the length of time
necessary construction will take, said Billingsley.

originally from London. He got his first set
of drums in 1953 at the age of 14.
Jazz is usually defined as being improvised
music, played on chords.
"It is mostly improvisation but actually
that is a misnomer," Gibson said.
H e said that the musician sees a story in his
head which he attempts to relate to the
people by means of his instrument. Gibson
describes it as a movie inside the musician's
mind but instead of showing it in a movie
theater he turns it into music.
"It is a language," he went on to say. "(Jazz
musicians) can talk to one another with
music. It is possible to communicate very
