DRAINING OF RESERVOIR IS THREATENING TRACKS Water from Little Bear Valley Finds Way Into Silver Lake SAN BERNARDINO, May 7.—The baffling rise of Silver lake, which threatens to submerge the tracks of the Tonopah & Tidewater railroad, it \M said hero today, Is caused by the draining- of the Little Bear valley res ervoir Into the Mojave river. The railroad company has installed mam moth pumps and a drainage canal in an effort to stop the steady rise of the lake and prevent Its tracks from going out. In order to repair several big cracks In the new concrete dam at Littlo Hear valley it has been found neces sary to empty the big reservoir, Into which the natural lake at that point has been converted. The discovery of the cracks In the. wall is the cause of the strained relations between the engineers, contractors and the reser voir company. To drain the reservoir vast volumes of water are being turned down the mountain Into the Mojave river. It is necessary to drain the reservoir to repair the damage and ascertain what is responsible for the faulty construc tion. The increased volume of water disap pears with the normal flow of the river from the surface and after its lon(? journey in the underground chan nel comes to the surface and forms the Silver lake. Hundreds of thousands of Inches of wnter must be turned out of the reser voir and the waters will ultimately find their way into the Silver lake.
