Despite unanimous opposition by Newport Beach council members, the Irvine Ranch Water District will seek state approval of a two-year plan to send treated waste water into Upper Newport Bay. "Their community is opposed to the project and they've reflected their position that way. But I believe the project is a good project," said Peer A. Swan, president of the water district's board of directors.

After reviewing two independent studies on a controversial plan to empty reclaimed waste water into Upper Newport Bay, the City Council on Monday is expected to take a stand against the Irvine Ranch Water District proposal. Reports by a UCLA biologist and a San Diego-based ecologist state that dumping 5 million gallons of highly treated sewage into the bay daily would not benefit the ecosystem, as the water district contends, and might be harmful to it.

The city will wait until Nov. 27 to take a stand on the Irvine Ranch Water District's plan to empty treated sewage into Upper Newport Bay. The City Council was to vote Monday night on whether to support or oppose the water district project, which would release 5 million gallons of reclaimed waste water daily into San Diego Creek near the Irvine-Newport Beach boundary and, eventually, into the bay.

I have never written before, but I felt your article on the blackball issue in Newport Beach (Oct. 11) was extremely one-sided. It presented the Newport Surf Council as justified in whining that they cannot surf anywhere in Newport Beach from noon until 4 p.m. As an older body surfer and longtime Newport Beach resident, I was disgusted by how selfish these surfers are today. Surfers used to take pride in that they were complete watermen. They used to be excellent divers, paddle boarders, swimmers and body surfers.

The Irvine Ranch Water District, upon the urging of the Newport Beach City Council, has postponed a vote on an environmental impact report involving a proposal to empty 5 million gallons of reclaimed waste water daily into the Upper Bay. The board agreed to wait until Monday to review the report, giving Newport Beach officials more time to study it and the proposal.

In an effort to ensure consistent trash-collection service and fees, the City Council on Monday will discuss consolidating its commercial waste operations. The city now uses 13 independent haulers to collect commercial refuse. A three-month study by the General Services Department indicates that the city could save money and increase efficiency by using just one hauler. However, awarding a single franchise could sink some small operations, said Dolores Otting, owner of 5 Start Rubbish.

Amid continuing consternation over plans to put tollbooths on Newport Coast Drive, City Council members agreed this week to work with toll-wary city officials in Newport Beach to try to alter toll-road plans. "It's come to the point where this is a political problem," tollbooth opponent and Irvine resident George Gallagher told council members Tuesday night.

The City Council today is expected to authorize the spending of nearly $3.4 million for emergency radio equipment that ultimately will link city police, marine officers and firefighters with the county and nearby cities. The existing city-county network was installed in 1973 and designed to handle 2,000 police, fire department and marine emergency radios. It was expected to serve 1.5 million people.

A plan to forestall any widening of Dover Drive has won support from the City Council. "We have everything to gain and nothing to lose," Councilwoman Jean H. Watt said. Councilwoman Norma Glover sought the change to such insulate neighborhoods as Santa Ana Heights, Cliff Haven and the planned Castaways community from increased traffic. Dover runs from Coast Highway northward to the Costa Mesa line, where it becomes 19th Street.
