Necessity for SJorajf. Reservoirs in the West.' , , tm A significant indication, of, the agri cultural progress of tie, .West Li e growth of public , opinion toward the fullest possible use of the streams for itrigation, and especially toward the conservation of the winter and spring Hood waters which now run to waste. A rteent report received by the United States Geological Survey, in its study of the country's water resources, from Mr. A. L.' Fellows, resident hydro grapher of the Survey for the State of Colorado, throws iuteiexting light up on the water situation now existing in that State. The urgent necessity for storage of water, says Mr. Fellows, was never more fully demonstrated than by the great scarcity of water in Colorado during the present irrigation season. The gagings of the streaifls by the United States Geological Survey show lower stages than have ever been known before at the same season, and the fact that a winter How of consid erable magnitude, although less than the normal, might have been stored if reservoir? had bten available, and the further fact that a number of floods of short duration, resulting from vio lent rain storms, were left unutilized, have opened the eyes of irrigators as never before to the necessity for stor age. Although the shortage has been most marked upon the eastern slope ' of the Hockies, the same is true to a less extent upon the western slope. Whereas in the eastern streams there has been practically no high stage, water being taken in the irrigation ditches before any high stage could be observed in the streams, while reach ing a stage of considerable run-off, have nevertheless attained their maxima at early peiiods, and have subsided quickly, so that low-water stages have come from one to two months earlier than usual. These facts, taken in connection with ' he prevalent high charge: for water and the .increasing value of land susceptible of irrigation, have re sulted in tilings being made upon a great many reservoir sites through out the State.
