Bates Urges Public Control Of
Huron River Valley Facilities
Explains Legal Rights Of
Citizens Interested In
By HENRY M. BATES
(Dean of the Law School)
Americans are beginning to learn
that making a living is not all of
life. They are appreciating that the
proper use of leisure time for recrea-
tion of one kind or another promotes
mental, as well as physical, vigor and
health conduces to sounder judg-
ments and the development of char-
acter. Moreover, the present world-
wideconditions, including unemploy-
ment, have made it clear that it is
vitally important to the health of
the nation that we give serious and
intelligent attention tothe develop-
ment of the opportunities for whole-
some recreation of various kinds.
Southeastern Michigan is fortunate
in shaving in its midst the beautiful
Huron River valley, offering so many
opportunities for rest, recreation, and
various types of physical exercise.
The public interest and public right
in our lakes and rivers have been
too much ignored in the past, but it is
not too late to save this beautiful
river valley, with the lakes which feed
it, for the benefit of the public.
Of course, it must not 'be assumed
that the public's interest lies wholly
in recreation or sports, or the enjoy-
ment of beautiful scenery. All of the
public, rich and poor alike, are in-
terested in the proper use of navi-
gable waters for transportation, in-
dustry, and the production of power.
But in the past these commercial
interests have been allowed to dom-
inate. It is high time that the citi-
zens of Michigan should address
themselves to the task of securing a
proper adjustment of these varied
interests in our rivers in order to
secure the best results for all.
Five rights of the public in its
navigable streams are recognized by
law. These are navigation, power,
civic and industrial uses, recreation
and irrigation. In Michigan only the
first four of these are important.
In current legal discusson the word
navigation is being used in two dif-
ferent senses, in Federal law it refers
to commercial transportation but in
some states the term is coming to
cover pleasure boating on small
streams as well. This latter use is
much more important than the for-
mer on the inland waters of Mic.
gan. To safeguard this right re-
quires the maintenance of channel,
passageway under bridges and over
dams and a certain minimum flow of
Rainfall Maintains Flow
The flow of streams is maintained
by rainfall. This is the primary public
wealth of every country, on which its
very existence depends. The power
companies have taken possession of
this public wealth, without compen-
sation to the public. In general
their developments have been to the
public advantage, but there are cer-
tain conditions that the state may
well prescribe for any populous area.
Among these are: that dams should
be safe (nearly all the dams on the
Huron have gone out in floods in the
last twenty-five years) ; that stumps
should be removed from impounded
waters; that passageway be provided
under bridges and over dams; that a
certain minimum flow of the river be
maintained at all hours; and that

nities for fishing, swimming, skating.

To Secure Rights
To secure and safeguard these
public rights and values to the people
requires first of all a clear state-
ment in the law and in the second
place the giving of some state de-
partment the unquestioned authority
to enforce the law and develop these
If we apply these principles to the
valley of the Huron, the conditions
suggest that over and above state
legislation and control there is need-
ed a local governmental unit or valley
authority to safeguard, plan and de-
velop these public interests.
It is believed that the railroad
companies concerned, the Edison
Company, and perhaps others, are
willing to cooperate along the lines
indicated.mThe public should be bet-
ter informed as to its rights. In
Michigan the public has the right of
access to navigable streams, the
sight to fish, and to indulge in boat-
ing, swimming, and other non-injuri-
ous activities. But something more
thanknowledge is necessary. There
should be vigorous and prompt at-
tention given to beautifying the
Valley and to making the stream it-
self more fully available for pleasure
One present difficulty is the lack
of any unified control or regulation.
The Huron River runs through five
counties, and there is no one county,
or any other local governmental unit
which has any effective control over
the Valley as a whole. Perhaps it is
not too much to hope that in the not
distant future a regional governmen-
tal unit, including this valley, may
be organized in order that the pe-
culiar needs of the region may be
properly considered and served.
