"I would- be surprised if we've seen the last of the water projects ? even this year," a Senior White House offi- cial said yesterday. At this point, .it is up to?the Presi- dent to take the next step in the con- troversy gver the expensive water projects, ones that Congress wants to have built and that Carter feels are cost ineffective. There seem to be two options for the President, if he decides to take .any action at. all. He could seek to 'defer funding for the 10 projects, and his deferral would take effect auto- matically unless Congress voted to oveiride it'. , . Or he could attempt to rescind the funding altogether. Should he choose that option, he would need an affirm- ative vote in Congress for the projects to die and such,a vote is an unlikely-prospect. note that this bill contains fund- ? ing for 10 projects for which! recom- mended deletion of funds," he. said. "I remain very concerned about these projects." ? ' WHEN "HE INITIALLY raised the issue of the waterways several Months ago, the President sought to kill 31 of the projects, and he later trimmed the list 0.19. He succeeded ? in halting funds for nine projects and reducing funding for four more. According to Carter, the elim ina- ? tion of some waterways- was "a precedent-setting first step in trim- ming s ending on unnecessary expensive and environmentally / damaging- construction projects . . . ? this is unprecedented progress. , governor's ern Shore ? npny from s evidence 'S own ap- destroyed ifandel? had leeting be-' :" to pass egislation. ,der was a l's, Weiner numerous andel over lat Snyder, )r force be- lerride of.a !r of a bill tace Track annuallY to "Much remains to be done to accomplish lasting reform in water resOurces policy," he said. "My ad- ministration is developing water policy reform proposals and will con- tinue to scrutinize carefully all ongo- ing and proposed water projects." Whatever broad action he fright take to curb the construction of water projects, it is certain to be met with howls in Congress. Many senators and House members appear to re- ?gard the waterways as a necessary pork barrel, and thus Carter's first foray against the projects cooled his relations with Congress. In his statement yesterday, issued as he vacationed in his hometown, Carter noted that the appropriations bill provides $500 Million "for re- search and development on breeder reactors and other advanced nuclear power technologies." ?

THE LIST, ,Which also was made -available to the House Ethics (Stand- ards 'of Official Conduct) Committee last week, reportedly was obtained IV federal agents from Jay Shin Rye, a former associate of Park.

As part of the effort to obtain Park's testimony, Bell said, high ad- ministration officials have sought help from the Korean government in Seoul. He confirmed that President Carter "has had some role" in these communications, as has Secretary of State Cyrus Vance. Although the attorney, general's statements seemed to underscore Park's importance to both the crimi-- nal and congressional investigations, he told reporters that some prosecu- tions still could be brought without the Korean's testimony.
