Orange County Supervisor Bill Campbell said Thursday he wanted a review of Irvine Lake's recreational activities and other uses that might affect the quality of drinking water for 6,500 residents in his hometown of Villa Park. Campbell's concern about body contact with the lake water comes in the wake of a report in The Times that a water-ski school had been operating illegally there for nine years, possibly jeopardizing Villa Park's drinking supply.

Re "Ruling Backs Development Deal," Nov. 4: I am vehemently opposed to the Serrano Water District's attempt to sell Barham Ranch to SunCal Cos. for the development of 600 homes. I believe Barham Ranch should be preserved for environmental reasons and for the benefit of future generations. Barham Ranch is an environmental keystone linking Santiago Oaks Regional Park and Irvine Regional Park. This land is home to wrens, hawks, owls, rattlesnakes, laurel sumac, live oaks and sage.

A small Orange County water district allowed a water-ski school to operate illegally for nine years in a canyon reservoir, possibly jeopardizing the health of Villa Park residents who drink the water, state health officials said last week. The activity was discovered last month when organizers of a triathlon sought permission from the Serrano Water District to use Irvine Lake for swimming.

The track, which was built in the dry lake bed without county, state or federal permits, probably will be out of business by summer because of a local water district's pending agreement to store more water at the lake.

The Serrano Water District board of directors unanimously voted last week in favor of legally ensuring that Barham Ranch would remain permanent open space if the Orange Unified School District agreed. But Wednesday's vote may not mean much in the end, especially since the school district has said it is not interested in limiting the use of the land if it is sold. Concerned that Barham Ranch could be sold to a developer, Villa Park and Orange activists from Save Barham Ranch on Jan.
