Newspaper clippings - Irrigation in Washington - Transcript (part 3).
"The most inviting field for the work for which my office was created I found to be in that part of Yakima county lying between the Yakima and Columbia rivers and above the great Sunnyside canal....Lying in the townships containing these sections are other lands selected by the state for the benefit of the various institutions granted by the enabling act; also the regular school section. These lands will ever remain valueless until reclaimed by irrigation and they add an acreage of about 30,000 to the ones given above. Abundant water for this immense acreage can be had from the Natchez river reinforced by a series of reservoirs."
