Bearing testimony to this is Les Toth of the Lethbridge Northern Irrigation District. "The Oklman River is getting pretty low, and water mains have been taxed to capacity all year round." Keho Lake and river reser- voirs, supplying the LNID, are having more water taken out than is put back in, according to Mr. Toth. He expects some slackening in water ccaisump- tion during September as grain crops are taken off and only sugar beets and some vegeta- bles remain. Slightly better off than the LNID is the St. Mary River Irrigation District. Manager Jake TMessen feels 1970 will go down as a record or near record year for water consumption, but reservoirs in the SMRID are holding up well, according to Mr. Thiessen, and no problems are expected in completing irrigation commit- ments. The SMRID also looks 'or a drop in water consump ion with the advance of harv- est, and watering should be confined to sugar beets and ve- getables before too much long- er. The Taber Irrigation District s also in fairly good shape, ac- cording to manager Ken Ander- son. "We are still using a lot of water, and are running near capacity, but districts are get- ting probably 30 per cent better utilization of water resources if many sprinkler irrigation sys- ems are preiSent in the area." Sprinkler systems give better and more uniform coverage nan flood irrigation, and use ess water.) The TID also expects the 1970 crop year to be a record or lose to record year for water usage. Lethbridge weather office rec- irds the area has had much tier years than 1970, and longer leriods of drought, but it was a dry year, with only .83 inches of precipitation falling in he past two months. In June, armers received the "million ollar" rain of the whole year, when 3.73 inches fell for the 5 month. Meanwhile, crop reports from nearly all areas in south-> em Alburta are favorable anc indicate harvest is progressing 1 well. The Claresholm area should produce above average crop yields, according to Alberta Wheat Pod agents in the district. All the winter wheat is off, and a good portion of barley and oats. Some wheat and flax has been swathed. Cardston reports "real good" crops, with yields down slightly but quality remaining excellent. The winter wheat is all harvested, some barley and oats, and nearly one third of the area is swathed. spring wheat is expected t begin within two weeks. Taber and points south clain yields will be about averag this year, but again with gooi quality. Agents estimate swath ing is 65 io 70 per cent com pletcd, with (juite a lot of bar ley, oats and spring whea being combined.
