Elr. Hyde also said that while there is no real evidence of pollution <br />of the pond or wells in the area, this has been a dry year and the situation <br />could change very quickly. Mr. Dunn pointed out that the elevation of the pipes <br />is dictated by the elevation of basement floors wgich are below street grade, <br />and that this grade would not change if the pipes came in from the south. <br />Charles M. Towle, 5013 Ridge Road, protested the installation because of the <br />high cost and sa-id that he has an estimate of $740 for septic tank and drain <br />field for his prqperty which has been approved by the Village. <br />Bums, 5108 Ridge Road, Dean Scott, 5120 Ridge Road and Vm. Warmath, 5101 <br />Ridge Road, questioned the method of installation proposed and whether it <br />would not be more prudent to serve the entire street with both sanitary sewer <br />and water at the same time.

J. <br />Liebenberg, 5112 Ridge Road, Senator Alf Bergerud, 5100 Ridge Road, Mrs. Roger <br />McBride, 5012 Ridge Road, and the owner of property on the corner of Inter- <br />lachen Blvd. and Ridge Road all spoke in opposition to the improvement, stat- <br />ing that the expense is unwarranted and that they all had adequate systems. <br />Mr. Wayne Nordgren, owner of Lot 3, Auditors Subdivision 325, said that he <br />would welcome the sewer except for the high price. Mr. Eans.Skalle, who is <br />having trouble with his syitem, urged that the improvement be authorized, <br />stating that residents would save money in the long run. Mr. Hyde said that- <br />the Village would prefer to install sewer and water at the same time, since <br />some day all of Edina will be served by sewer and water. In reply to Council- <br />man Shawls question about the alternate plan, Mr, Dunn advised that two of the <br />property owners affected opposed the sewer. <br />of the cost of the project, the signers of the petition had withdrawn their <br />names, except for Mr. Skalle. <br />in the health and sanitak$sconditions in the Village and that when there is any <br />indication of pollution in the area, it will be necessary to install the sewer <br />immediately. Councilman Johnson then moved that the project be abandoned,since <br />there is no apparant need at the present time, with the undeseeazldfng: that <br />sanitary sewer and watermain ljoth be installed for all Ridge Road properties <br />as soon as any pollution is found. <br />and carried. <br />Because of the excessive depth <br />An alternate estimate of cost which would provide for pipe run- <br />Mr. Hyde added that if the alter- <br />Mr. <br />Messrs.
