Natural Solutions
To Pollution

By A.J.S. Ray

Humankind has passed a remarkable environmental milestone: People now consume more of Earth's natural resources than the planet can replace. In light of this, pollution abatement technologies, coupled with development of renewable energy resources, seem destined to become big business during the 21st century. (This includes remediating the land, and Earth Sciences researcher Terry Hazen talks about microbes that can consume chemicals or transform heavy metals). Full story.

Water Main Work
Closes Lawrence Road

Lawrence Road is closed today from Glaser Road eastward to the Building 31 driveway until 4 p.m. to connect the new water main recently installed along Lawrence Road to the existing distribution system. Glaser is open to two-way traffic to allow access to and from Building 31, the Building 72 complex and the East Canyon. This affects parking at Building 77 along the guardrail and the downhill portion of the road. For more information, call Sam Birky at 7932.

Rail Replacement Limits
Parking at 65 Bus Stop

A guardrail replacement project in the Building 65 bus stop and parking area will result in limited access to visitor parking in that lot today and tomorrow. Work is scheduled to be completed, and all visitor parking places restored, by Friday. When necessary, a flagman will help direct bus traffic.
