Abstract : The purpose of a reconnaissance study is to provide an overview of the water and related land resource problems and needs within a particular geographic area, to identify planning objectives, to assess potential solutions and problems, to determine priorities for immediate and longrange action, and to identify the capabilities of various governmental units for implementing the actions. The information developed in this report has been combined with information developed in the other subbasin reports to produce a main report covering the basin as a whole. The various flood control measures discussed in this and in other subbasin reports are combined in the main report to develop the outline of an integrated flood control plan for the basin within the context of a comprehensive plan. The Two Rivers Subbasin occupies 1,112 squares miles of the northern Minnesota portion of the Red River Basin and includes portions of Kittson and Roseau counties. It is bordered on the north and easy by the Roseau River Subbassin (which extends into Canada), on the southeast by the Tamarac River Subbasin, and on the west, northwest, and southwest by the Main Stem Subbasin. The northern edge is generally within 2.5 miles of the U.S.-Canadian boundary for 20 miles in the north-central part of Kittson County. The subbasin has achieved a legal status as a water resource planning unit through the formation of the Two Rivers Watershed District in 1957.
