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 Red Lake River Subbasin occupies 5,970 square miles of the central Minnesota portion of the Red River Basin. It is the largest of all the subbasins and includes all of Red Lake County and portions of Marshall, Pennington, Clearwater, Koochiching, Itasca, Mahnomen, Beltrami, Polk, and Lake of the Woods counties. The major waterway is the Red Lake River, which has its sourece in Lower Red Lake. The river is 196 miles long from its source to its confluence with the Red River of the North on the Minnesota-North Dakota border at East Grand Forks.
