Water Attorney Fears Loss Of Paramount Right Theory FRESNO, Calif, April IS. (IP) A. prominent water attorney earned today an appeal to the state supreme court s nullification of the 160-acre law could result in a ruling in fa\or of the so-called paramount n g h t s theory. Denslow Grren of Madera issued the warning in a joint session of the natural resources and agricultural committees of the state chamber of commerce's San Joaqum Valley Council. He also accused reclamation commissioner W. A Dexheimer of coercion in dealings with the Ivanhoe Irrigation District. Green, who represents eight water agencies in the San Joa- qum and Sacramento Valleys, explained the theory is that the federal go\ernment has authority over water originating on "edetal land. "Thus you could kias goodbye to the California water plan, development of water resources by irrigation districts and by municipalities," he declared. "It must be noted 95 per cent of California's water has its origin in streams rising on federal land." Green contended Dexheimer had no right to threaten the Ivanhoe district. The agency w notified yesterday by Dexheimer that its Central Valley Project water supply will be cut off unless the district joins in a federal appeal from the state court s rilling. Green said there is no requirement under law that the water delivery be halted. He pointed out many districts have been receiving CVP water for several years even though their contracts with the federal government were not validated by state courts.
