This study attempts to answer these questions, but the answers should be considered preliminary only as drainability and final determination of irrigability of parts of the area have not been established. In addition, as irrigation is not in use in the area at present, returns from irrigation can only be estimated on the basis of experience from other irrigated areas. Figures used in the analysis on operation and maintenance charges, construction, and costs of grading land are estimates furnished by the Bureau of Reclamation, and are subject to revision
