This is the July 19, 1994 hearing on "Water Use Practices on Bureau of Reclamation Projects" held before the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations of the Committee on Natural Resources, House of Representatives. From the opening statement of George Miller: "The Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations will come to order for the purposes of conducting a hearing on water use practices on Bureau of Reclamation projects. In particular, the practice known as "water spreading'' will be discussed this morning. Water spreading is best known and has been investigated most aggressively in the Pacific Northwest and I think that is reflected in today's witness list. There are many definitions and perceptions of water spreading and the practice takes many forms. In general, the term 'water spreading' refers to any number of ways in which the Bureau of Reclamation project water is delivered to lands that are not legally eligible to receive project water." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Michael Crapo, Joyce N. Fleischman, Daniel P. Beard, A. Reed Marbut, Antone Minthorn, Louie Dick Jr., Richard L. Erickson, Katherine P. Ransel, Rick Gove, Gail L. Achterman, Reed Benson, and Sherl L. Chapman.
