The Battleground of National Irrigation and the Columbia Basin Project (part 3).
"One grouping embraces the early days of cooperative canals which expanded small patch irrigation for settlers; another completion of the North Pacific Railway, and the third, passage of the National Reclamation Act. The beginning was at the time of land settlement days when ditch companies in the agriculturally destined Yakima Valley, on the perimiter of what later became the Columbia Basin Project, were primarily estate speculations."
