Dul..les: As a member of the Senate Committee on the District of^,olumbia ',.thich has, as you know, to concern itself with general legislative the affairs of the District, I would be grateful f gzs3f oversight or some further en- li-ghtenment on two matters concerning the proposal, which has teen oubli.cized in the newspapers, to locate the new headquarters of the CIA on a site at T 'n: ley, Virginia. The first concerns the Potomac River. You may have observed in the press my concern about the present state of the River; this fine stream has degenerated into an open and dangerous sewer. It is my understanding .41, ,.,-.,at adequate sewage facilities are not presently available in and around Langlev, and I would appreciate any information you can proper),y give me concerning sewage arrangements that might be made - their appro_timate cost, the kind of treatment to be given, and the like. It appears to me imperative that the Government be the first to do what it can to avoid further pollution of this once-handsome watercourse. The second concerns access roads. The press has reported that increased traffic caused by locating these headquarters at Langley would, in the judgment of District officials, require the double-decking of Chain bridge; I assume that the access roads to Chairs Bridge would require widening to carry the increased load. Can you give me any figures concerning the cost of these improvements as they relate to the District of Columbia budget? 'chile I recognize your imperative need for an adequate building, it is also true that the District is woefully behind in much-needed capital constructs:-xi and I would be grateful for any information disclosing what the impact of these additional costs would be on the budget of the District of Columbia. I shall appreciate any information you may be able to supply with respect to these inquiries. I assure you that n questions are Prompted by my deep interest in the affairs of the District of Columbia. incerel3r, -~ Jayne Morse V ac DOMMENT Ito. #i~'s.w'.c,tdsi4 ti Tf!i TS S I AU-Th.
