Iterated Flaw Rivera Benefit
r Rockwood Gate a I$iee*tft .and!}
E Work Progressing Favorably
During the past week there was a
shVr^isTlrrthe^Coiorado river and
coming as It did just when the work of
filling In the Intake was In progress
some apprehension was felt that dam
age to the works might result. This
fear, however, was unfounded and the
Increased flow of water was turned to
good advantage In washing out the I by
pass through the Rockwood gate
On last Thursday, just as the water
was at Its highest, Rev. W. G. Conley,
of Redlands, visited the heading. He
saw the work of blasting to facilitate
the enlargement of the by pass that
was being done under the personal su
pervision of Mr. Cory and says It was
a great success, as about half of the
river's flow of 15.000 second feet was
passing through the Rockwood gate
and that channel was being enlarged
every minute. He also visited the old
channel and estimated that a raise of
one foot more would start the water
flowing down that way to the Gulf. At
the v concrete gate he found the work of
opening the Inlet from the river nearly
completed and was assured by Mr. D.
L. Russell, who has charge of that
work that It would be completed In a
few days. In all probability the water
in the river will subside In a day or
two, when the concrete gate being
-ready for use a large proportion of It
can be turned through It and the rest
will pass through the Rockwood gate.
This will leave the completion of the
Hind dam free to go on unmolested.
Meantime the flow through the con
crete gate will be cutting the, canal for
bringing water to this Valley larger
and thereby removing all! danger of v a
water shortage. The Increased flow
of the river during the past week has
been so handled that It has measurably
lessened the time when the Mexican
intake will be closed and the water un
der control will be taken out at the
concrete gate. fU rfk
