4 The Daily Tar Heel Tuesday, September b. w
Area opposition expected
1-40 addition planned
From lUff and wire reports
RALEIGH, N.C. - State and federal
highway officials have agreed to contruct a
20.4-mile section of Interstate 40 from
Hillsborough to Research Triangle.
They plan to make that agreement formal
Tuesday. Barring any successful opposition,
contract bids for the project will be let in
But the planned route is expected to draw
opposition from Orange County residents,
who strongly opposed it during a public
hearing on several proposed routes on June
29, 1976. Most of those who spoke against
the corridor opposed having it come through
Orange County at all.
Richard Whitted, chairperson of the
Orange County Board of Commissioners,
said county government has gone on record
against the proposed route.
He said he expects the board to begin
some type of legal action against the N.C.
Department of Transportation when the
commissioners meet today.
"There is no leason to put another
interstate through the county," Whitted said.
"Studies have shown that only local traffic
would use the road. But existing roads can
adequately handle local traffic."
Whitted said the four-lane highway would
be very damaging to the population growth
patterns of the surrounding areas. He said
the road's effect on the physical environment
would be devastating.
The route agreed upon would begin just
east of the Interstate 85 and State Road 1009
Interchange at Hillsborough and run
parallel to North Carolina Highway 86. It
would then turn east from State Road 1733
to the Durham County line at U.S. Highway
15-501, continue southeast to Jordan Lake,
then run east to the existing 1-40 link which
now ends at Research Triangle Park.
The route, which would curve between the
cities of Durham and Chapel Hill, was
supported by Durham officials and private
officials. It runs closer to Chapel Hill than
The corridor would run through gently
rolling areas, most of which are
undeveloped, said Henry Clegg, assistant
highway administrator. It would force the
relocation of 94 families and 1 1 businesses,
Other corridors which would have gone
through urban sections of Durham drew
heavy opposition from residents.
Adoption of the route would be a major
step forward for a project which has been
stalled for most of the decade.
If it is adopted by the board, a final
environmental impact statement will be
completed and circulated for comment by
the various state and federal agencies
involved. If no drawbacks develop, a design
hearing could be held in late 1978.
Carrboro Board of Aldermen
votes down improvements
The Carrboro Board of Aldermen
voted against a proposed $ I -million bond
referendum for improvement of streets
last week because they said they believe
the streets can be paved without selling
A street in Carrboro is paved if a
majority of the residents on the street
petition for paving. The town pays 40 per
cent of the cost of paving, and the
residents pay 60 per cent.
Braxton Foushee said without the
bond money, streets in black
neighborhoods will not be paved. He said
the black residents are aware of the
petition process, but they cannot get
enough signatures to have the streets
"Cost is a very important factor,"
Foushee said. "They know how to get
their streets paved. It's just that they are
choosing not to have them paved."
After the aldermen voted against the
referendum, they asked Town Attorney
Michael Brough to draft some legislation
that would allow them to assess residents
of streets that need to be paved without
waiting for a petition from the residents.

Wells drilled on campus
to alleviate water crisis
By AMY McRARY
Two wells drilled on the UNC campus are
supplying back-up water for the swimming
pools near Woollen Gym and chilled water
for campus air conditioners. More wells are
being drilled or fitted with pumps for
alternate water sources for University
The first well was drilled Aug. 2 at the
swimming-pool area to supply make-up
water lost from the pools by evaporation and
Another well constructed at the Bell
Tower parking lot is supplying chilled water
for air conditioners in the Health Affairs
complex. The wells are being drilled by the
Heater Well Co. from Cary.
"The well at the Bell Tower parking lot is
making a significant contribution to the
water source for the air-conditioner units in
the Health Affairs complex," said Director
of the Physical Plant, Gene Swecker. The
well is producing 40 gallons per minute, or SO
to 60 per cent of the water necessary for the
Although the wells at the swimming pools
and the parking lot are the only ones now
being used by the University, others are
being completed or being drilled to produce
an additional water supply for UNC.
A well will be hooked up at Van Hecke
Wettach Hall within the next few days to
supply chilled water for air conditioners
there, Swecker said.
The University laundries on West
Cameron Avenue will receive all their water
from two wells being finished there.
However, it will be at least three weeks
before the wells are hooked up to the laundry
system, Swecker said.
' Two more wells have been drilled at the
South Water Chiller Plant located behind
Married Student Housing to produce water
for air, conditioners in the Health Affairs
Complex, the Dental School and the Faculty
Laboratories now being constructed. But
these wells have not been connected because
they are low-water producers. Water from
one well is being used to water plants on the
Pumps have been ordered for two wells
being drilled at Kenan Lab and behind the
Morehead Planetarium. These wells will
furnish water for air conditioners in Kenan,
Davie and the Planetarium. The well behind
the planetarium may also serve to water
plants, Swecker said.
An experimental well is being drilled near
Navy Field, the football practice field. The
well will be used to keep the football fields
green, but the physical plant doesn't know
yet if this well will produce, Swecker said.
According to Swecker, at least two more
wells will be attempted after drilling is
completed on the experimental one at Navy
Field. One will be drilled at Phillips Hall
because monthly water-meter readings by
the Orange Water and Sewer Authority
indicate that Phillips is one of the buildings
using the largest amount of water, Swecker
said. The other well will be drilled in the
depression behind Lenoir Hall near the
Carolina Union parking lot.
Tutorial service to expand
Students looking for tutors to help them
through a particularly-difficult course can
consult the Student Government Tutorial
Service, a service designed to aid students in
finding tutors. This year, the service will be
expanded to include courses in the College of
Arts and Sciences and the School of
Ann Marie Knops. director of the tutorial
service, said the deans of the schools
involved are enthusiastic about the
expanded service. Knops is organizing a staff
to contact tutors and groups that may be
willing to supply tutors.
The tutorial service was started last spring
by Alpha Epsilon Delta, the campus premed,
predental society, for use in the mathematics
and sciences departments. This is the second
semester the service has existed and the first
to include all courses in arts and sciences and
the business school.
