Editorial.* LEADERS PUSH PLAN FOR STORING Very soon, there will likely lie mi inicuslve campaign lo seek voter spproval lor Constitutional Amendment No. 4 on the ,jem>ral flection ballot Nov. H. The campaign would he headed hy Go\-. Price Daniel and water conservation leaders of ihe state. This amendment would allow the Texas Water Development Board to use part ot its $100 million water loan fund to pay lor the added height needed to fully utilize dam sites in Texas. Two weeks ago, the Water Study Commission for Texas released its full report on the waiei- conservation work that should he done in Texas by the year ffllO. It listed S3 reservoirs that would be huill in the state's eight major river basins at a cost o[ about S3 billion. Among these are 12 projects on the Bra/os, Including une of particular interest to Brazoria County — The Allen's Creek reservoir proposal on a site near Richmond, lo cost an estimated SBO million. At the same time the list was issued, a statement was made by Harry Bui-leigh. chief resident engineer for the U. S. Bureau of Reclamation, to the effect that Texas had as much surface water as it could use in the foreseeable future. The trouble was, the water isn't distributed at the times and places it is needed. That is, there is plenty of water if it can all be used. But at times vast amounts waste into the Gulf. At other times, there is a shortage. Also, some regions have more than they can use, and some parts of the state are dry and banen. The study report is looking far into the future, and the proposed amendment is intended to do something about the needs that are seen in this future. Much of the work of building dams will be initialed by the federal government, and carried out by the U.S. Corps o! Engineers. But the federal government's interest in reservoirs is primarily from the standpoint of flood control. That is the reason lor the Stale government's interest in the conservation amendment. When the Corps of Engineers builds a dam, it plans only for the amount of storage space needed to catch waters from a potential flood. This storage space must remain empty in order to fulfill this function. But at the same time, the Corps will enter into a joint venture with a state agency that might be interested in water conservation storage space or hydroelectric power facilities. The state would pay the added cost. The problem that exists now is that state and municipal agencies have limited funds to pay for conseivation storage. They would be inclined to pay only for short-term needs, which would mean that the dams would be built to less than their full height. Water studies have indicated that in 20 to 50 years, the full yield of all presently proposed reservoirs will be needed to supply the 21 million Texans expected by the year L'010. But if the dams and reservoirs are built at this time only to meet present or near-future needs, there will be greatly increased costs later on. since recreational and other developments will have been built around it. The cost would run to three times as much, then, to buy the developed land and raise the dam. In the long run, sponsors argue, the amendment would save Texans many millions. If it passes, the Development Board could pay for the added cost now and hold the water storage space until cities or industries in the area need ihe water and are willing to pay for it. Then the revenue can be used to pay off the long-term bonds the Board issues. There are two cases in point today. Lavon Reservoir near Dallas was built mainly for flood control by the Corps of Engineers. Now more space is needed for water supply purposes. Today, however, North Texas Municipal Water District, which supplies water to 10 cities in the area, will have to pay about 60 to 70 per cent more than it would have cost them in the first place.
