1. Construction of irrigation works has been completed in the Duncairn, Swift Current, Waldeck and Rush Lake localities. Those of Duncairn and Swift Current were in operation in 1945. Water may be delivered to the farm lateral systems in the Waldeck and Rush Lake localities in 1946. The main supply channel has been constructed to the edge of the Herbert and Morse localities; construction of a pump station and a few miles of canal is required before water may be delivered to farm lateral systems of Herbert and Morse. The main canal supplying the Hodgeville locality is constructed as far as High Field reservoir; construction of a pump station and several miles of canal is required to supply water to farm lateral systems in the Hodgeville locality.
2. Construction in the Herbert and Morse localities would require six months for completion after commencement; that in the Hodgeville locality would require twelve months.
