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 River Subbasin occupies 2,233 square miles of the extreme southwest portion of the Red River Basin. The subbasin is comprised of portions of four counties in North Dakota, including Ramsom, Sargent, Richland and Cass counties. In addition, portions of Marshall and Roberts County in South Dakota are included in the study area. The subbasin is bordered on the north by the Sheyenne River Subbasin and to the east and south by the Main Stem and Bois de Sioux-Mustinka River Subbasin, respectively.
