Abstract : 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 Roseau River Subbasin occupies 1,128 squares miles of the northern Minnesota portion of the Red River Basin and an additional 929 square miles in Canada. Altogether, it is one of the larger subbasins, including portions of Kittson, Roseau, Marshall, Beltrami, and Lake of the Woods counties in the United States and Manitoba Province in Canada. It is bordered on the southeast by the Red Lake River Subbasin and on the southwest by the Two Rivers and Main Stem subbasins. The area is unique because it is one of the two subbasins that reaches into Canada. The United States portion of the subbasin has achieved a legal status through the formation of the Roseau River Watershed District. Because of the geographic location of the subbasin, much of the water source planning for the subbasin has been done under the auspices of the International Joint Commission.
