One of these was that three other areas who are making ar- rangements to buy Middle Fork water f r o m R/chvale Irrigation District will share in the liabilities but not in the profits. J. Minasian, attorney for Rich- vale, admitted under questioning by members of the Water Rights Board, before whom the hearing was held, that the three other areas are all organized as water districts and under the law are not entitled to engage in the power business. Richvale, organ- ized as an irrigation d/strict, is entitled to produce and sell hy- droelectric power, which it plans to do if it is successful in get- ting the Middle Fork. It will op- erate hydroelectric installations on a tax-free basis, sell power to the Pacific Gas and Electric Com- pany and pocket the profits. At the same time, it came out at the hearing, Richvale has con- tracts with the three water dist- ricts not only to pay for the water but to assume their propor- tionate shares of any liabilities that may arise. A number of people' went from Plumas County to Oroville to at- tend the hearing, and came away with the report the state Water Rights Board seemed determined !to approach the issue in an ob- iective manner. In several in- stances, t h e y said, Richvale spokesmen were told to obtain and present more exact and detailed information.
