This letter, dated June 17, 1949, from United States (US) Representative Usher Burdick to Mountrail County Farmers Union secretary Mrs. A. N. Winge concerns the pool level of Garrison Dam. Burdick writes that there has not been much support for his efforts to maintain a pool level of 1,830 and that he therefore appreciates that Winge's County's Farmers Union has passed a resolution opposing the 1,850 height. Burdick pledges to send the resolution to the US Public Works Committee, which is considering US Representative William Lemke's bill that would make the 1,830 level permanent.
