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 Maple River Subbasin occupies 1,146 square miles of the southern North Dakota portion of the Red River Basin. It includes portions of Steele, Barnes, Cass, Ransom, and Richland counties and is bordered on the north by three subbasins: Goose, Elm, and Rush. Its western and southern borders are flanked by the sweeping curve of the Sheyenne River Subbasin.
