VAST PROPORTIONS OF THE PRESENT CANAL SYSTEM It is difficult for to get a compre hensive idea of the great proportions of the present canSls and laterals >■! the Imperial irrigation system. This is not speaking of the syvtetn as it will be when 800,000 acres are under irrigation, but as it is today with the canals and laterals already dug. In- eluding" the portion of the Carter river used as SUCh, there is now constructed approximately 100 miles of main canal, 125 miles of named laterals ranging from S feet to 20 feet on the bottom, the stuallestof these laterals being as large as any canal in Southern Cali fornia, and 75 miles of smaller laterals, the latter being- increased rapidly. To aid in comprehending the magni tude of the work thus far done in re claiming the desert, a few comparisons can lie made: If the source of water supply was at Bantling, the main canal would lead to Los Angeles, the named laterals to San Diego, and there would be 75 milts of small laterals for dist...

Imperial flbtees AND FARMER. VOL. 1. Work at Imperial Headgates. Hut little has been said of late re garding the progress of work at or near the heading of the Imperial Ca nal System on the Colorado River — possibly because of the work of con structing the distributing system for Imperial Water Company Xo. 1 was such a great undertaking that the en tire attention of the public had been directed to that work to the exclusion of other work more distant from the points of observation. While attention has been more gen erally directed to the work in the vicinity of Imperial, various reports have been put in circulation regarding the main canal near the heading on the Colorado River that have been misleading and have tended to create in the public mind some incorrect ideas regarding the value of the en terprise. These reports ha*, o been In most cases circulated innocently by parties who were not informed, with probably occasional assistance from parties who had other than honorable moti...
