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.
