struction work was done. At the
time the Circuit Court decree was
entered November 30, 1923, the
company had sold in the neighbor-
hood of 2200 acre of water, during
the succeeding five years but 48
acres were sold. The testimony
shows that the company has failed
to deliver the water which it has
sold, none of the water users who
testified having received anywhere
near what they were entitled to and
Mr. Hedin, the manager of the com
pany, on cross examination admitted
It has been necessary to pro rate the
water each year although the con
tracts do not provide for such.
From the evidence it' would ap
pear the project represents an ex
penditure of $221,000.00. During
!the Pa;t five years the company has
spent approximately $2600.00 in
actual construction work and accord
ing to the officers of the company
who testified, the dam at Clear
Lake could be completed to a fifteen
foot height by spending $1500.00 or
$2500.000 which would store more
than' enough water to furnish the
outstanding contract holders. Tak
ing the $2700.00 . previously spent
and , the $2500.00 necessary to
partially complete the dam would
mean a total expenditure of $5200..
00 or a little more than $1000.00
In view of the foregoing and
other evidence, it doe; not appear to
the state engineer that the company
has exercised that degree of diligence
which would entitle it to an exten
sion of time.
It is therefore ordered, that the
application for extension of ; time
within which the Wapinitia Irriga
tion district was given to complete
its rights be denied.
