This company was incorporated under the laws of the state of New Jersey for the purpose of constructing a canal system by taking
water from the Colorado River in San Diego County, California, and utilizing the same for irrigating a large tract of arid land in San
Diego county — conveying the water to such land through Lower California, also for irrigating a large tract of land in Lower California.
In order to place this extensive system on a mutual basis in conformity with the laws of California, this company endorsed the plan of
furnishing water only to mutual water companies incorporated to furnish water to their stockholders only at cost. The main canal system
was so far completed that it was able to furnish water to be delivered to lands south of Imperial by the 15th day of June, 1901.
No water is furnished by this company for use in the United States except that supplied to Imperial water companies for the uni-
form price of fifty cents per acre foot, under contract for perpetual delivery at that price.
