Mr,   J*  GrOldie,
Qkanagan Centre, B.C*
Dear Sir: RE: IRRIGATION PIMP
44Q acres - 330 ft*
QUTQATIOfl #1414
We wrote you under even date on pumping 120 acres,
280 ft, elevation and we will now go into the matter of
supplying "both the 400 acres and 120 acres with" a combined
unit. We have figured it out and find a one pump unit
the most feasible, "but will^how you how we figure it step
"by step, so that if we are wrong you will "be able to advise
us*
Figuring 2 Pump-
The lower pump at the lake should have capacity
enough to take care of the 400 acres above as well as the
120 acres lower down*
The 120 acres will require a pump of about 600 U.S*
G-*P*M* for 2-f acre feet (See other letter of this date)
The 400 teres at one acre foot will require a
pump with 700 U.S. G.P.M* and for th.6 two acre feet you
will require a" pump with capacity of 1400 U.S. G.P*M*
So, if you want 2 acre feet on the 400 acres, the
pump at the lake will have to be a 1400 gal* pump* Also,
the second pump will have to be this capacity/ And when pumping for the 400 acres there will be none for the 120 acres*
If you figure on pumping for the 120 acres for a few days, the
lower pump will be larger than you need for the 120 acres unless
you can take care of a large volume of water in a short time*
So* summing it all up, we feel that if you had a pump
of 1000 U.S. Gal* per minute, the lower pump will have capacity
for 1 acre foot for the 400 acres and about 1-|- acre feet for the
120 acres, both at the same time*  If irrigating each tract CANADIAN ALLIS-CHALMERS, LIMITED

singly you will get enough for If- acre feet for the 400 acres and
then for the 120 acres you can shut down the discharge valve and
have plenty* To do this the lower pump will be 1000 U.S. gals.
per min - 3/4 mile - 280 feet elevation, and thesecond pump 1000
U.S. G.P.M* ~ 3/4 mile - 30 ft. elevation - discharge pipe 10".
