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 potenital 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 Tamarac River Subbasin is narrow, rectangular shaped area about 50 miles long and 10 miles wide at its greatest extend. At 333 square miles, it is one of the smallest of the subbasins. Most of the subbasin is located within Marshall County, but portions of Kittson County and Roseau County are also included. State watershed districts have been formed to the north and south, but the subbasin does not itself have any legal status.
