S. bureau of reclamation. Drainage is a part of the bureau's overall program for the lower Rio Grande which also includes a gravity irrigation canal costing an estimated $07,000.000. Tho drain plan was formulated after a month's study by the bu4 reau's Denver engineer, J. R. lak- isch (GQ), assisted by local 'bureau staff men. A test hole-drilling 'program for the drainage project is now complete. Data compiled from such work is »n record, showing underground water flow in this region and giving detailed data on water tables, it chief source of economic lo.s.s to citrus growers. Orchards often die because of steadily rising water tables. The holes also show various soil types. The cighi, proposed main drain canals in the valley would serve all existing irrigation districts here, said Segcr. Five would empty Into the Gulf of Mexico or adjacent '.valors, while three would empty into IIie Arroyo Colorado, -.1 national channel which leads from La Foria and Harlingen past Rio Hondo and Paso Real. Final location of lateral ditches remains to be determined by de- 'ailed survey and studies. If federal funds are made available for the joint irrigation-drain- nge construction program, the work would be done tinder contracts with vsilley water district. ' A charge for use of irrigation water provided oy the project would be designed,, over a period of years, to liquidate the t-osl. of the work. from a British magazine. The yroaner .received it as he does (ill •awards - minus his "lamb chop," as Hope; ''\lh- his toupee. . ,nfc ORDINANCE NO. 203 AN ORDINANCE CHANGING THE NAME OF GEORGIA AVENUE BETWEEN CHRISTINE STREET AND DUNCAN STREET TO CHRISTINE STREET AND DECLARING AN EMERGENCY.
