(Itca*on'!t Report Of Nov. 5 In Modi
>\ ith the» mcuH^rr In mind of la*t
tilntn'n t»Atrr i«hortnj:f, the Nvttd ol
director* of linjTrial Water Company
No. 1 ha* determined t<> make frequent
Investigation* thi?" «r.n»on «>f the con«
ditious at the intake from the Colorado
Hvcr, and in company with our superin
tendent, Mr. Beach, I msite another
trip to the heading November « r >th.
The river etijigf ft Yiiiua j»howe«l the
water level nt itVS, wlien-aj* on Oct. 10
it wa« 2V>.9, *>r ahoat one fo»^t higher
than now, luit Oct. l»t it wont suddenly
up to 22,8 or three fe««t liiglter than the
present lewl, and with storm wnter
from Arizona and New Mexico, which
alwayo brings down the maximum
Thj? bearily laden water entertij the
Dew cat off ditch, tl»e »«low current of I
which I refeml to in my former report,
and tlierc settled, filling the ditch about
three feet with «in«l near tin- entrance,
an«l with «oft mud the r«-«t of the 33D)
feet, to that now it i* carrying only
two or thre<« feet of water and moving l
al^out one ft«*it prr seconu.
Tlie old channel abore the Inter
national line wa? not carrying more
than one half &* much water a.« it «lid
Oct««l«er 10, Unt we w«»re «nrpri-ie toj
find that the new cut ju*t •outii ol the
International line was carryimral.»out n*
much water a* it <ii«l at that time when
tbe river at Yuma waj» a little over a I
Thi« i* probably accounted for by the 4
peculiar location of the *an'l-U»rs in the I
river, whiclt are **» situated as to i>e
very favorable for throwing a large
amount of water into this opening.
Ik-jinninz a qunrt«*r of a mile up
dream at the opjo-ile side of the river j
is a lowland Ixir extending toward tlits
the clvex; *^ » J l^J a 4J XX * loW ihe \
o^-ninj is quite **W&&&S&)n?2 y
well nS\^t e r,^mm!^^t\
ea^e with which iS^terailf.iiofbe^J^l
when any obstruction, a* a lihle^br^h,|
is lodged in! the channel; it «
KeacJj's favorite idea to gradually ex- 1
tend this line of bans by anchoring |
bruj>h, a« less water flow* in the river, \
until it connects, if necessary, with the |
island refvrrt-d to above, and thus throw j
the whole current in between this island '
aud 'Aii- mam land.
Tlils plan if successful, would keep
the water approximately up to the
present level, and by doing the dred;;
ing at this point that would be neces-j
Eary to re-open the lower cut, which is \
as badly filial and the present flow of
waUrr could be largely increased.
This plan certainly lookt* feasible,
and would Ix? working on natures own
linef, and where natural conditions*
have indicated the highest approval
without regard to what engineer* or
Oihcrii might think.
This opt-n ing alK* has the advantage]
of entering the channel at an angle j
slanting op stream, which cauMrn the
water to flow in more directly and waken
no ehort bend* or crc*,k« an the old ditch
Alx»ut 45,000 inches are now running
into the Imperial Canal from all open
ings, which ia far in excefis of present
needs and require* being wa>t«-d at
every poeeible point, and probably i« an
iuucli as will be needed at any time
this eea»"n, llnce tho waste by spread
ing out over the country has I**' n most
ly etopped in Mexico, aud we believe
that with Intelligent and pern is tent
effort with the dredge aud the other
meatis that may bo employed that this
amount can lw» kept up an the river
lowers. Very truly
