'.'., Reclamation Project Rapped By Engineers Introduced :in the last Congress was a. bill (Senate Bill 75) authorizing the Central Arizona Project, a. so-called reclamation project, to take Colorado River water to land in the central part of Arizona, near Phoenix. The main reason offered by proponents in support of the project is that it will provide a ".rescue" supply of Colorado River water to 226,000 acres of war-boom land in Arizona. According to the Rochester section of the American Society of Civil Engineers, "its main r construction features are (1) Bridge Canyon dam and power plant on the Colorado river, 120 miles above Hoover dam; C2) Parker pump lift, to take irrigation water from the Colorado river- near Parker' dam and lift it tcr'a total height 6f*985 feet; and (3) a SOOymile system of, canals and pipe lirfes to deliver water to Arizona lands for raising ordinary field crops, such as al'-! falfa, hay, and cotton. "Estimates 'at the cost of the project amount to a total of $2,075,729,000, 'which is based upon the "Bureau of Reclamation's own' eqnstruction^cost estimate, a 2 1-2 per cent interest rate; an-eight- year .construction''period, and a 75- year , finahcHrig period. The cost per acre for the irrigation features alone! is!$1,838. It should be noted that the^Bureau's construction estimates Tare, often understated and that' there have been increase's in .-.construction materials and lagor since the estimate was' made iiTfiffS, so that-the two billion dollar cost of the project would be a minimum. "Were the project to be authorized, sizable benefits would be bestowed upon the owners of the land to be irrigated. More than one- half of this land is owned by 420 individuals who would receive an average benefit, at the expense of the American taxpayers, of $550,000 for each one of the 420. "The land to be irrigated will be used exclusively for the benefit of the present owners. No public land will be!""opened for entry to war veterans or other citizens for homesteading-purposes under provisions "of the project." These bathing- suite prove the versatility of rayon.
