Fox re Vover Motoc Raphur 4133 w. 34th 355-3901 a bring this to a Cliv a Quot continued from Page i emphasized that the report is a Progress report and that much More detailed engineering studies Are needed. The study covers about a years work and the participation of about 90 Bureau person Al either full or part time. Offices involved Are Amarillo Albuquerque Oklahoma City and Austin. Hill said the first years study was made possible through a $200,000 appropriation and that another $467,000 has been earmarked for further study during the period july i 1968, to june 30, 1969. Results of the investigation to Date support the following conclusions Hill said a a a a it is physically feasible to transport the projected 2020 requirements of 16.5 million acre feet per year from the lower Mississippi River system to West Texas and Eastern new Mexico if it is a determined that there Are surplus Waters in the Mississippi River available to meet these requirements. A should surplus water be available it might be transported through a combination of several of the import routes studied. However the More Southern routes appear to be the most desirable for future study. The studies indicate that the project would lend itself to stage Hill also indicated that no single route would have the capacity to handle the volume of water needed. A a a Hill noted that each of the nine routes Are designed to terminate at Bull i Ake West of Littlefield. The Arkansas Oklahoma routes enter the Panhandle in the Vicinity of Canadian pass just Southeast of Amarillo and southwestward to Bull Lake. Other conclusions reached in the investigation Hill said Are a regardless of the route the Cost per acre foot for delivering Waler from the lower Mississippi River system to irrigator in the study area appears certain to exceed substantially their ability to pay for such Hill said that the economic benefits of irrigation to nonfarm elements of the study areas Economy Are Large and appear to be sufficient to warrant pay a a a ment by those n o n f a r in elements of costs of import water in excess of their Rigatos ability to pay. He said too that the Cost of delivering import water pro Bably could be reduced and economic feasibility of the project enhanced by incorporating in the project provisions for purposes other than water Supply. He referred to such benefits As navigation fish and wildlife development and recreation. Cli f Chamberlain executive director of water inc. Has not seen a copy of the report and preferred to Reserve specific comments until he has had an Opportunity to study the import investigations.
