Seven of the ten lessors were successfully contacted. Respondents were asked a standard list of both open-ended and specific questions. The first two respondents raised the issue of how to determine the value of the water leased; consequently, all other respondents were asked for their thoughts on this issue. Survey results are summarized below. Comments of respondents are displayed in italic type. Clarification is provided in brackets [ ] where necessary. In general, how do you think the program is working? Overall, responses to this question were generally positive: o Excellent. There is water in Mill Creek all of the time now. There never was before. Great program. Money well spent, 0 Wonderful. The gravity irrigation system we installed is so efficient. It is really valuable. o Going fine. C-6.
