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 Turtle River Subbasin is an irregularly shaped area about 50 miles in length and ranging in width from six miles at its western and to 28 miles at its eastern end. It is one of the smallest of the subbasin occupying only 613 square miles of Grand Forks, Nelson, and Walsh counties in the central North Dakota portion of the Red River Basin.
