Thursday, September 5, 1991--The Gienville Democrat/Pathfinder---Page 5 Advisory Committee first time in many years Com- e State engineering met for the years on Fri- Thirteen mem- "member commit- the campus of e to re- school's pe- to Dr. P. director of the technol- college is look- ttee for help in want them to and advise things that we and determine we need to ad- that we will be with transpor- trips. Most of the like Dowell change their ve- or three years mileage. I am in the process of negotiating to de- termine the best way to get two, four-wheel drive vehicles and a truck that can be converted into a log truck for the forestry de- partment of the land resourccs division," said Lutchmansingh. According to Lutchmansingh, the committee will also bc asked to assist with summer and per- manent placement for the petro- leum engineering technology students. He is also interested in summer employment for the fac- ulty, a situation which he feels will enhance and update their professional lives. During the Friday meeting, the committee entertained the re- quests of James Bibby to con- sider the addition of a landman program to the existing program. Shelly Reed, Bill Grottendieck, Bob Radabaugh and James Bibby will receive comments and questions through Bill Rubin, concerning the direction the landman program will take. Radabaugh, Turk, Reed, Hodges, Grottendieck. Lay, Grafton, Lutchmansingh, Knepper, Hoffman, A pond can he a valuable ad- dition to any property. "If prop- erly managed a pond adds aes- thetic value to the property, may offer many hours of recreational enjoyment, may supplement the owners income, and provides water storage for many other uses," says Beth Ann Finlay with the USDA Soil Conserva- tion Service in Gilmer County. A fish pond, in order to pro- vide maximum benefit, must be properly located, designed, and constructed. Technical assis- tance is available to landowners from the Soil conservation Ser- vice or from the West Fork Soil Conservation District. Fish production is influenced greatly by water quality. Chemi- cal qualities such as dissolved oxygen, acidity or alkalinity and physical properties such as tem- perature, weed growth and mud- diness affect fish growth and re- production. Proper construction tech- niques will improve water qual- ity. The pond edges should be steep and reach a depth of two feet quickly. This will reduce the amount of sunlight reaching the soil thereby discouraging weed and cattail growth. Seeding all disturbed areas around the pond will not only improve the looks of the pond but reduce soil ero- sion and the amount of mud reaching the pond. Most ponds in Gilmer County are considered warm water ponds. During construction vari- ous methods of installing the overflow pipe may be employed to regulate water levels, water temperature, and water quality. Dunng warm weather the top layer of water will be warmed more than deeper layers. The greater the difference in tem- perature the less mixing of the layers occurs. The deep cooler water con- tains less oxygen and increased amounts of hydrogen sulfide and ammonia. The hydrogen sulfide and ammonia develop in the sediments in the bottom of the pond. By placing the inlet to the overflow pipe at or near the bot- tom of the pond the water is forced to mix throughout the pond This will cause the tem- perature and oxygen levels to be constant at all depths and re- move undesirable gasses from the deeper areas. With "good" water throughout the pond fish growth and reproduction will in- crease.
