City loS1
By ELAINE RIDEOUT
Four of Ann Arbor's dams have the potential to I
save the city a substantial amount of money and t
energy if they can be converted into hydro-electric
power generators, Mayor Louis Belcher said yester-
day.
"If hydro-generators could supply enough elec-
tricity to run our waste and water treatment plants, t
the potential savings to the city would be very
significant," Belcher said.
U.S. REP. CARL PURSELL (R-Plymouth) ac-
companied Belcher and other city officials to Barton
Dam yesterday, one site of a federally-funded dam
conversion study.t
Pursell said his experience as a two-year member
of the House of Representatives Science and 1
Technology Committee has enabled him to help t
divert millions of dollars into alternative energyI
programs similar to the Ann Arbor dam renovationt
project.

"I wanted to see firsthand the feasibility of a
project that I helped make happen on the federal
level," Pursell said, who is running for reelection to a
third term in Congress.
ACCORDING TO CITY Administrator Terry
Sprenkel, the city has received a $50,000 federal grant
to conduct the feasibility study.,
"I think it's a lot of potential," Sprenkel commen-
ted. "I think it was worth the investment to do the
study."
Sprenkel said the study, which is scheduled to be
completed within five months, will determine
whether the city can economically reactivate the
dams to produce power, and provide an estimate on
the total cost of such a project.
CONSULTING ENGINEER Donald Lystra of
Ayres, Lewis, Norris, and May Inc. said he believed
the Barton site is capable of producing about five
million kilowatt-hours of electricity. "That's about
equal to the amount of electricity it takes to maintain
a thousand homes," he said.

a dams

But Lystra said the potential of three other Ann Ar-
bor dam sites is less certain.
Although the Argo, Geddes, and Superior dam sites
are smaller than the Barton Dam, Lystra said he is
still hopeful they can be converted. "The Argo dam is
very marginal," he explained, "but we may be able
to make it work-maybe by combining more than one
dam."
LYSTRAS SAID THE dams, which are currently,
used only for water retention, will be outfitted with
low-head hyrdo-generators installed directly into the
river.
According to Sprenkel, the city plans to renovate
the historic Barton Dam power house, which will no
longer be needed, into a museum for historic county
artifacts.
"All of these sites were developed 50-70 years ago,"
Lystra said. "What we're seeing is a renaissance of
the old technology."
Lystra said his firm designed the Barton Dam in
the late 1920s.

Police
notes
Shoot-out ends in death
A murder suspect died last night fol-
lowing a high speed chase and shoot-out
with several police agencies. A
Washtenaw County deputy sheriff said
the suspect fled the scene of the mur-
der, ran four roadblocks, and crashed
into a guard rail before his capture.
Police said they entered a motel room
in the city of Wayne and found a victim
dead of gunshot wounds, and the
alleged suspect with a shotgun in his
hands. The suspect fled the scene in a
truck and a chase ensued, police said.
Several shots were fired between the
pursuing officers and the suspect,
police said. They added that the suspect
was wounded in the exchange but no
one else was injured.
The chae ended when the suspect was
forced off the road and crashed into a
guard rail on North Territorial Road
near U.S. 23. Speeds reached during the
chase, they added, exceeded 100 miles
per hour.
The suspect was taken to University
Hospital for treatment and died there at
8:30 p.m. of gunshot wounds received
during the chase, police said.
They added that the suspect ran four
roadblocks. The first two were in
Wayne, the third was on Nixon Road in
Ann Arbor, and the fourth on Joy Road,
south of U.s. 23.
Involved- inthe episode were Wayne
Polcie, Ann Arbor Police, the Wayne
County Sheriff's Department, the
Washtenaw County Sheriff's Depar-
tment, and the Michigan State Police.
Police said the cause of the shooting
was unknown and was still under in-
vestigation.
Names of the suspect and victim have
not been released pending notification
of family, police added.
