UTAH CAPITALISTS
INVEST IN NEVADA
Irrigation Company to Re laim
Land Near Reno to Incor
porate Soon
Special to The HeraMRepubllcan
Ephraim Dec Incorporation papers
will shortly be filed under the laws of
Nevada for the TruckeeCslifornla irriga
tion company The capitalization will be
3060000 divided into 60000 shares of 50
each O B Berglund of Gunnison will
be the prea1dent and W E Tollestrup of
Salt Lake the secretary
Since early in June of this year Mr
Tollestrup and Mr Berglund have been
working quietly on this project During
the summer the preliminary surveys werd
made bv a Reno civil engineer and the
course of the necessary canals tunnels
etc and the reservoir sites were platted
and rtcorded The utmost secrecy was
maintained throughout all of these pre
liminary arrangements even to the de
ferring the filing and recording of the in
corporation and other papers
Both are men who have made the busi
ness of big Irrigation projects in both
Utah and Colorado a careful study Two
of the projects they have put through
in Utaah have proven signal financial
successes Prior to their undertaking this
project they made exhaustive studies or
the rainfall and runoff of the country
involved and procured the best engineer
ing talent available to make the neces
sary investigations and preliminary sur
veys before they planned to go ahead
with the undertaking
Salt Lake capital is chiefly behind the
proposition Mr Bergiund has personally
Invest a large sum of money In the
company and Mr Tollestrup is also heav
ily interested financially
It means the expenditure of upward of
3500000 in the near vicinity of Reno and
the opening up for the cultivation of im
i mense tracts of land to the north of the
i city I
Some idea of the size of the project and I
Of the proven belief of the capitalists
behind it in the ultimate financial success 1
of undertaking can be gathered from
the following outline of the chief feature I
of the enterprise
Independence creek which is the out
let of Independence lake not far from
Floriston flows Into the little Trucket
river at a point in the northeast quarter I
of section 17 At this point a dam will
be built and the combined waters of tin
two streams will be deflected into the
canal
White lake where a reservoir will be
constructed there will be 21 njles of
canal pipe line and tunnel The length
of the tunnel which the contour of th
country will necessitate In the supply
canal is about 3400 feet
Immense Reservoir
Just west of White lake where the con
rvation reservoir will be the incoming
water will be carried over the divide and
down into the basin This conservation
basin with the construction of the neces
sary dam will give a storage capacity of
U3UOO acrefeet of water This capacity
is that given by raising the water to the
55foot contour line which is as high as
It will be raised at present The surface
Df the lake will have an area of M49
acres The contour of the basin of White
lake is such that the water can be ulti
mately raised by a higher dam to the i
WI foot contour line above the bed of the i
lake without exceeding the spill level
This will give a storage capacity of 432000
acrefeet
Dlivery of water from the White lake
reservoir to the land to be reclaimed will
be through a tunnel 2800 feet long tak
Ing the water out at a level with th
bottom of the lake bd and delivering it
Into the channel of Long Valley creek
Thus the water of the Truck and In
dependence creok will be carried into and
by way of tunnels the aggrte tunnel
length of L000 or above 0 mSS Onefifth
miles M
milTbe estimates of the engineerwho
thework in hand fr the construction of
canals tunnels reservoirs and dams will
be betw en 1400000 and 9600u40 this esti
mate will In all probability be heavily
exceeded when the actual construction s
aone
The articles of incorporation provide
that the TruckerCalifornia Irrigation
company may acquire by purchas and
appropriation 00000 Inches of water from
the Little Truckee 40000 Inch ° c from
Prudy creek and 40000 from Long Valley
creek a total of 140000Inches of watr
