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 Sheyenne River Subbasin encompasses 5,690 square miles of land in the southwest portion of the Red River Basin. The Sheyenne is the largest river lying completely within North Dakota (500 to 550 miles long), and its subbasin includes portions of 16 counties in south-central North Dakota.
