Water Rights Measures Under Study Two proposed bills which would alter basic water rights in North Dakota were approved recently by the Legiswtve Ire- search subcommittee on natural resources. One measure would set up a preference of water use for hu- mans and livestock. Other uses, such as industrial and irrigation, woud be rated according to the date of rights granted by the state Water Conservation com- mission. The bill also would provide for termination of abandoned water rights, so new ones could be is- sued. A second measure approved by the subcommittee proposes a number of administrative changes in state water laws. One change would clearly authorize political subdivisions to join each other or the state in mak- ing surface and ground water surveys as well as building dams, reservoirs, waterworks and similar projects. Passage of the bill is expected to play a role in projects like the Bowman-Hai'ey Dam in southwestern North Dakota, where federal aid if approved bY Congress would be contingent on local participation. Botll measures must be ap- proved by the full LRC before being submitted to the 1963 Leg- islature. Sen. C. G. Kee of Ellendale, subcommittee chairman, said the group will end its final meet- ing today with discussion of bills to amend the Garrison Conserv- ancy district and irrigation dis- trict laws.
