The present high position of Utah among the great commonwealths is due to the practice of irrigation. According to the last census, about 983 square miles are now being irrigated; and yet only a small fraction of Utah's water supply is used for purposes of irrigation. With the adoption of improved methods of using water, and the construction of mighty reservoirs to store the floods of spring, the irrigated area in this State will be largely increased. It is not at all improbable that in time the water supply may be made to irrigate ten times the area now under irrigation, though generations may pass before this is realized.
