Abstract : The purpose of a reconnaissance study is to provide an overview of the water and related land resource problem sand 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 Pembina River Subbasin lies in the south-central portion of Manitoba Province in Canada and in the northeastern part of North Dakota in the United States. The subbasin length (east to west) is about 130 miles, and its width (north to south) varies from a maximum of about 35 miles in the western portion to about 18 miles in the eastern portion. The total area is approximately 3,950 square miles, of which about 50.3 percent is in Canada and 49.7 percent is in the United States. The United States portion includes parts of Rolette, Towner, Cavalier, and Pembina counties. It is bordered on the south by the Devils Lake and Park subbasins and on the east by the Main Stem Subbasin.
