SITE STEPS OUT
Yakima Valley Irrigation Left
MAY ABSORB ALL CANALS
Comprehensive System of Storage
Reservoirs May Reclaim Every
Available Acre in Great
Valley of Washington.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington. July IS. According to advices re
ceived by the Interior Department today,
the State of Washington has stepped aside
to give the National Government every
opportunity to enter the Yakima Valley
In Eastern Washington and construct a
big irrigation project which 1111 reclaim.
In addition to lands already under
Irrigation, practically every acre that can
be Irrigated by the waters ot the Yakima
River and Its tributaries.
For several months tho- state has been
endeavoring to make a selection of 53.0C0
acres of the Yakima Valley -with the In
tention of having It irrigated under an
extension of the Sunnyside canal. The
Reclamation Service insisted from the
start that. If this selection was made,
the Government would not undertake any
Irrigation in the Yakima Valley. Thor
oughly imbued with this idea andanxlous
to have the Government get to work on
the larger project, the people of the Ya
kima Valley appealed to the state to
withdraw Its selection and. In response
to that request. Governor Mead and Land
Commissioner Ross have formally re
quested the Secretary of the Interior to
ret aside their selection. This leaves the
Government" free to go ahead and build
the works for which the Yakima people
have been clamoring.
Plans or the Government.
At this time the Reclamation Service
Is not able to state positively what ac
tion It will take, but T. A. Noble, in
charge of work In the Yakima Valley,
has been Instructed to make a thorough
Investigation and ascertain what lands
the Government can Irrigate, what pri
vate canals It should purchase and' what
storage and distributing works It should
build in the Yakima Valley, with an
estimate, of cost. These investigations
will be pressed, but it will probably be
late In the Fall or early In the coming
Winter before they are concluded and
It Is out of all question for the Govern
ment to actually commence any con
struction work In the Yakima Valley be
fore next season. There Is good pros
pect, howevor. that work will then be
undertaken. If present Ideas are adhered
to, the Government will build storage
reservoirs on the hosdwaters of the Yak
ima River and Its principal tributaries
and from these reservoirs run high-line
canals, which will irrigate many thou
sands of acres which cannot be reached
by any existing canals.
3Iay Absorb Private Canals.
By some reclamation officials it Is
deemed advisable for the Government to
absorb all existing Irrigation systems In
the Yakima Valley, evolve a general com
prehensive plan ot Irrigation, adjust
water rights and thus avoid what will oth
erwise terminate In endless water con
tests before the Washington courts.
Other officials, however, are of opinion
that water-users under the present canals
and other persons holding water rights In
the Yakima Valley should take the In
itiative In this respect and adjust their
own differences without the aid of th
Government. It Is Impossible at this tlma
to state what line of action the Reclama
tion Sen-Ice will pursue.
Palouse Farmers' Petition.
The Reclamation Service today received
from Senator Ankcny 103 affidavits of
persons who have made entry of lands
under the Palouse project In Eastern
Washington, expressing their willingness
to pay anywhere from $55 to $10) per
acre for water, if the Government will
take up and construct the big Palouss
project- It Is the general opinion of
these land-owners, many of them hold
ing 220 acres each, that the farm unit
under the Palouse project should be
acres. Because the Palouse project will
cost $5,000,000 and because the reclamation
fund has been practically exhausted, it
will be Impossible to undertake that pro
ject now. but the affidavits of farmers
have been placed on record and will be
considered when the reclamation fund has
grown again to a size which will permit
construction of the Palouse project.
