Dear Ken:

Let me thank you for sending Dalton Harrison, Jon Bartholic and
Gary Lynne to the public hearing on water shortage in Erooksville
yesterday. Not only was their presence good for moral support,
but the testimony that Dalton Harrison lent in the hearing supported
the citrus industry's position for a need for water and we did come
out on top with the emergency declarations.

During lunch we were talking about the research and the time spent
on water and also the recent report of the conference on agricultural
growth in an urban age and one of the gentlemen made the comment
that agriculture must increase its water use by 30r in the next
decade. If we are to increase our water use by 30" then we are
going to be facing crises like this one in Brooksville on practically
an annual basis. Perhaps it may be necessary to spend some more
time and money in doing research on water and rrthods of apply-
ing water to crons more economically both financially and with resource.
We would be interested in helping you any way we could to spend some
more effort in this regard. I know you are putting a lot into it already
but the way things are going now with this type of water shortage and
with the increased needs we will be needing in the next decade,
perhaps this nmay be a very important area.

Thanks again for lending your help.


F. Dalton Yancey, III
