6 - Thurs, May 20, W5 Ksdlands Daily fatts Problem of distribution Muni asked to lead way in Feather River study The Saa Bernardino Valley Municipal Water District (MUNI) was asked yesterday to lead the way in a proposed "high priority" study on the problem of distributing Feather Kiver Water from the state aqueduct to water companies in the MUNI district. The proposal was outlined in a report to the district's directors from John R. Shone of Redlands, chairman of the Upper Santa Ana River Water Coordinating Council's construction committee. It asks the lUJNl district to authorize an engineering study, to be completed by January 1966, to determine specific answers to a number of water distribution questions. The study proposal calls for determinations on the amount of water to be spread in settling basins and the amount to be delivered directly, the district's water treatment plans and cost to water distributors, a detailed report on the distribution system with the size and location of all pipelines to be built by the district and establishment of a construction schedule so all facilities will be complete by December 1971. Also included are determination of connection points for all water companies that will take direct delivery of Feather River water from the district and location of all spreading basins. MUNI directors approved a motion authorizing the district's staff to work with Shone's committee in compiling a list of consulting engineers from which a selection could be made. They also directed MUNI general manager Hugo Wilde to compile information on a number of Feather River water distribution questions formulated by members of the construction committee during two meetings held this month. The construction committee's proposal also asks for a feasibility study on a water exchange plan which would result in direct delivery of Feather Kiver water to e.xporters in exchange for money and an agreement to restrict pumping from the basin. "It is believed that the (con­ struction committee's) plan will | he was "glad" to have the help promote harmony among the various water agencies in the valley and will enhance the public image of the Municipal Water District," Shone said in his report. "When you have annnounced a precise, orderly plan for the construction of (Feather River water) distribution facilities, you will have taken the first step toward gaining the confidence of the public that is essential for the completion of a complex project such as this. W. R. Holcomb, vice president of the Upper Santa Ana River Water Coordinating Council who attended yesterday's MUNI directors' meeting, said "overall coordination" is needed to solve the area's water problems rather than the "peace- meal, fragmentized" efforts of the past. Holcomb warned that any delay in determining the water distribution plans tor this area would create serious problems. "If we wait until 1969," he said, "it will be too late. Two members of Shone's committee, present at yesterday's meeting, were individually critical of the MUNI district's abU- ity in the past to answer questions on local Feather River water distribution problems. "We have no figures on costs," said Nicholas E. Pres- can, manager of the West San Bernardino County Water District. "We asked for costs and never received answers . . . you don't buy a suit if you don't know how much it costs.' Another committee member, John E. VanDell, Rialto public works director, charged that he has been unable to get the district's staff to answer his questions in the past. "I called the district two years ago when I first came to Rialto," he said. "From the answers I got, I may as well not have asked the questions." "You'd better have a man on your staff who we can talk to and get something down on pa per," he added. Director Joseph Bonadiman, who at one point referred to the Shone committee report as "a discourtesy" to the district, said Not public until June 2 Secrecy lid clamped on Muni's new budget A tight lid of secrecy was clamped on the San Bernardino Valley Municipal Water District's (MUNI) 1965-66 preliminary budget yesterday. The district's directors received copies of the preliminary budget at their public meeting, but refused to allow reporters to see the figures. MUNI assistant general manager Jack Beaver of Redlands, who brought the matter up as a regular item on the director's agenda entitled, "Preliminary Budget, 1965-66," said the budgets received by the directors weren't really budgets at all, but "a first draft" of the preliminary budget. He said the first discussion on the preliminary budget would be held at the next directors' meeting on June 2. When reporters asked Beaver after yesterday's meeting for copies of the budget information given to the directors, he said none was available. Beaver said the directors received only "a set of preliminary figures ... for study by members of the board only." He later referred to them as "working papers" and quoted the state attorney general as saying, "No budget is a budget until it is published." The MUNI official referred reporters to the directors during' their efforts to secure the figures, but the directors refused to reveal them. Board President Horace Hinckley of Redlands told one reporter he hadn't had a chance to look at the figures contained in the budget item himself. When reporters continued to object to the unavailabiUty of the "set of preliminary figures." Beaver stated that the MUNI board was acting as a "finance committee" in the matter and thus was not obligated to reveal the contents of the material handed them until the next meeting.
