We examined the reservoir and amslte now controlled by the Blue water Development company. Thli MU is all ideal one for I In- purpose, ''"Hi as io Hie slur. me and fur hte building of the dam, it has been eur veyed hy lbs government and net sldi by the government as reservoir nil No, It.

The (lis! n . between these bluffs la leas than tun feel, which makes this al most a perfect site for building a dam Plenty uf good material fur concrete Work is rinht at hand. The approximate drainage area above the dam is iMfl square miles, mnch of which is well covered with Umber, The elevation ranges from ' """ feel lo about 9,200 feet on the tops ,.f the mountains Which form the nintinental divide, and the rain fall In this aeetlon, as a rule, is heavy In r.o)!i government reports taken at Bluewater show that in the months Of iiftust and Ihe first six days of Hep tembet over six inches of rain tell and even more than this In the mountains blah drain into the proposed reser voir.

After Waiting for seven years for 'he Uluewater company to rebuild Ihe darn and carry out their contracts to apply water to the farmers Of the Vaoey we believe that some action Mould be taken by our state engineer, either to force-(his company to carry 'ft thei contracts and use the water Which gose to waste or to refuse any either extenaiox of time to the com "v and allow the setilers and prop erty owners to form Sn irrigation dis nci and install a proper aystem for 'he urination of their lands. w'e believe that jf the legal diffl egltlet were adjusted and the stale ggVe these people 'he rights needed to able tht.m to secure the water, that 'he financial problems could be snlv "l rid H'.Ofin or more acres of fine huid would be put under cultivation.
