Water Experts Make Progress on Carson River Pact One river committee of the Cal ifornia - Nevada Joint Interstate Compact Commission made considerable progress Wednesday, but another still hasn't been able to agree on anything but minor matters. The committees have been working to define for the joint commission specific areas of agreement and of disagreement. Reports are scheduled to be sub mitted to the joint commission at a two day meeting here Decem ber 13 and 14. Purpose of the compact commis sion is to divide equitably between the two states the waters of the Lake Tahoe basin and the Truckee, Carson and Walker river systems. Progress has been registered by the Carson River committee. Both states have agreed California should have a maximum of 144 cubic feet per second during the irrigation season from the west fork of the Carson and 73 cfs from east fork. Stored flood water would be divided about 80 per cent for Nevada and 20 per cent for California. While there appear to be no major areas of disagreement among committee members, minor points of reservation exist, j Still virtually stalemated is the) Truckee River committee. That group has agreed in principal only to minor items such as joint participation in projects to suppress evaporation and allow use changes of water from agricultural to municipal. Basic allocation of the river's water is far from settled. California has asked from 35,000 acre feet a year. Nevada has offered the 8,700 acre feet presently used by that state. The disagreement leaves no basis for negotiating division of stored flood water. Three members of each committee have been named to report the findings to the California and Nevada half of the commission for study by Nov. 28. They1 will be submitted to the joint commission for further discussion at the December meeting of the compact.
