DECISION IN REGARD
Property Owner has right to exercise
power of eminent domain, use of
water for Irrigating being re
garded as public matter
Desert land ontrymon around
Iknd will be interested in an opinion
rendered by Attorney General A. M.
Crawford in regard to right of way
for an irrigation ditch across pri
vate property, without the permis
sion of the owner of such property.
In reply to a requoat for an opinion
from Judge H. C. Ellis, Mr. Craw
ford quotos chapter 238, Laws of
1911, as follows:
The United Stales, the state or any
person, firm or corporation shall huvc
the riht of way across a nil upon public,
private anil corporate lauds, or other
rights of construction, malntenencr, re
pair anil use of all necessity reservoirs,
dami.watiPKates, canal', ditches, flumes,
tunnels or oilier means of occurin, stor
intf and conveying water for irrigation
or for any other beneficial pnrpoc, upon
payment of a just compensation for such.
Inferring to this law Attornoy
General Crawford Bays:
Said section as amended by Implica.
tlonat least makes the use of water for
irrigation purposes a public use, and if
the court should so hold the meaning of
the section, then the right of emi
nent domain could be exercised, and
where it is uecestarv for a person to cross
the lands of another with a lateral in or
der to irrigate his own lands, he could
bring suit in the Circuit Court, have the
right of way condemned and pay what
ever the jury assessed, provided he was
unable to agree with the owner as to the
compensation. That is the only section
that I find now which attempts to define
a public use when applied to appropria
tion of water for irrigation purposes,
The bulletin has received a supply
of the best K. & E. blueprint paper,
duplex paper, tracing cloth, profile
paper, cross-section paper, drawing
