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 Wild Rice-Marsh Rivers Subbasin occupies 1,950 square miles of the central Minnesota portion of the Red River Basin and covers portions of the counties of Norman, Mahnomen, Polk, Clearwater, Clay, and Becker. It is bordered on the north by the Sand Hill and Red Lake River subbasins, on the south by the Buffalo and Ottertail subbasins, and on the west by the Main Stem Subbasin. The subbasin has attained a legal status through the formation of the Wild Rice Watershed District.
