KeywordsFinancing snow surveys

A round-table discussion relative to financing snow surveys was lead by the author who outlined the problems presenting themselves through limited funds from the Nevada Agricultural Experiment Station. George D. Clyde explained similar limited funds from the Utah Agricultural Experiment Station and the Parnell Fund and Agricultural County Extension Service and Water Commissioners of several Irrigation Districts were being used. However, limited finances were hampering the expansion of the program, and other limitations were for qualified manpower. Nevada State Engineer, George W. Malone expressed the great importance of snow survey data to farmers on irrigation districts, and stated his difficulty in convincing the State Legislators of the financial obligation of the State in this program. The entire group commentated on the whole hearted cooperation and support of the U.S. Forest Service, The Park Service and U.S. Weather Bureau in furnishing data.
