Maintenance Fee to Amount
$17,775.05 Paid In to Irri.
gat ion Company
t When a water user who has a
contract with a company which
promises to deliver water to the
water user's fields the man who
paid for such service should de
mand and be accorded that for
which he has paid. That is a rule
the world over, but In some Instances
has not been carried out.
The water u.ers of Juniper Flat
have paid the Wapinitia Irrigation
company the sum of $17,775.05 as
maintenance fees, expecting their
canals would be kept clear of grass
cat-tails, willows and other growing
impedimenta. They expected the
water due to be delivered and that
the ditches carrying same be kept
In such condition that there would
be nothing in the way of a clear
r vDId they get that flow! We learn
they didn't. Just above the O. P. We
berg ranch on Juniper Hat, there
lc a measured stretch of 300 feet of
ditch that is filled with cat-tails. So
thick do those weeds grow that the
water is diverted from the ditch
at least a cansiderable amount and
seeks a low place Instead of flow
ing down to the Flat proper. Those
$17,775.05 were paid for the pur
pose of keeping the water flowing,
not for the purpose of growing cat
tails, and as a result many ranchers
aave suffered. That mney was sup
posed to go toward the payment of
a ditch walker, whose duty is should
be to keep the canaLi open and un
cbntructed. Where did that money
go is a question that agitates the
minds of many water contractors.
In the year 1916 five ranchers on
Juniper Flat contributed the sum of
white ally and be given an opportun
ity to play the game right. The
water urers of Juniper Flat paid
thoir money in gcod faith and In
tbat faith had a right to expect that
the water r' for be delivered to
them. The maintenance fees paid in
should have been applied to the pur
pose for which thty were paid. Had
that been done the ditches would
now be in a condition to carry wa
ter to the extreme end of the sys
tem, instead of part of it being di
verted because of a henvy growth
of cat-tails from reaching that part
of the Flat The contract-holders
may well cry with Job, "How

not boils but time wa ted in waiting
for the water that they long for
and which seldom came.
