state, started some to or three
years, Is now practical completed,

likely to w required In futuro t pcra

or which have not yet been organiz

Steps have recently been taken to
organize tho North nnd Ochoco Units
ns Irrigation districts, and about two
years ago, an aborttvo attempt was
mado to securo federal assistance In
building tho West and North Canal
Units. Tho .situation is now prnc
tlcally a deadlock, owing to tho rel
atively high cost of theso projects,
tho serious complications Involved In
reservoir storage for their ubc, nnd
the practical Impossibility of financ
ing now work of this kind.
It Is doubtful If nnyone has serious
expectation of financing any Irriga
tion district In this vicinity under ex
isting conditions. Recent activity in
distrct organization Is probably large
ly based on the hopo that the State
or possibly tho nation, or both, will
got back of district Irrigation bonds

Tho plans for developing this pro
ject ns outlined In tho co-opemtlvo
roports indlcnto cortnln feasible
methods of construction.
These plans nro not, however, In
tended to bo considered as final In
every respect, nor ns precluding fur
thor consideration or modification.
To n largo ctent they nro bnBod on
tho Idea of Including as largo an area
ns posslblo under tho canals for rea
sons of general public wolfaro.
Thore 1b Btrong probability that
advantageous modifications of tho
general concept can bo Introduced,
possibly Including rearrangement of
tho supply system of sonic localities,
or changes In tho slzo of tho units,
nnd perhaps somewhat different
methods of construction, Hint may
render tho work much moro feaslblo
and attractive than tho co-opornttvo
Tho desirability of early develop
ment of nearly a quarter of a million
acres on tho Deschutes Project will
bo admitted without discussion
That this territory when Irrigated at
a reasonably low coBt by a depend
able systomi of works, will bo sottled
within a rcaBonnblo period may also
bo assumed with certainty.
The ono question at Issuo Is that
of ways and means.
Regarding theso, It may also bo as
sumed thcro Is no hopo In proceduro
under tho Carey Act; In fact much
of this land Is already Included In
Caroy Act segregations, tho organiz
ers of which havo boon unablo to
further flnnnco the work.
Public attention appears, at this
time, to be concentrating around tho
Irrigation district plun, coupled wih
state or Government aid, or both.
This irrigation district plan ap
pears to offer more real ground for
hopo of tho early utilization of Ore
gon's vacant land than any othor, and
If this hopo ultimately proves baso
less, It seeniB certain that great ar
eas of the Interior must remain al
most profitless tor many years.
The Deschutes Iiasl.: Is, however,
somowhnt peculiar, In that Its many
Irrigation projects aro bo correlated
as regards water supply, that Indi
vidual action In project development
is hnrdly posslblo.
The present low wator flow of tho
stream Is already used or appropriat
ed for uso by projects now In courso
of development; now projects must,
therefore, mainly depend on n wator
supply from reservoirs; this In turn
Involves heavy construction oxpenso
nnd committments boyond the scopo
of any singlo unit or project.
Par Instance, btorugo Is proposed
principally at two largo reservoirs In
the upper Doscl utcn, one at Ilenham
Palls, the othor at Frane Prairie.
This storage Is very cheap when con
sidered In reference to all the Irri
gation development proposed In the
Deschutes Ilasln, but from tho nat
ure of tho situation It Is evident
theso reservoirs cannot bo developed
piecemeal, nor even can they be ceo
nomically used for a single project
without reference to others.
Thus, even if wo had legislation In
forco today enabling tho State or Na-j
tlon to lend its credit to back Irriga
tion district bonds of those projects.
It would still be a very difficult or I
perhaps Impossible thins sr any pro-j
Ject to go ahead and develop Its otor-i
ago In the absence, of collective ac
tion. A close study or the physical situ
ation Indicated by data prepared la
the co-oporatlve Investigation reveals
tho probable fact that not less than
three of these units can ndvanag
eously uso a common diversion dam
and main canel. Theso are tho North

State, of tho Government, or both,
should build this main canal oys
loin, It will moan tho successful or
ganization of nil theso projects. It
appears to be, therefore, distinctly n
stnto or a Government enterprise
Tho storngo works proposed nt
Donlinin Palls nnd Crano Pratrlo aro
estimated to cost about $1,400,000;
owing, howovor, to reduced pi Ices of
land and construction that now pre
vail, It appears likely that rctual
costs will fall far below this amount.
