Description

This letter, dated February 3, 1953, from United States (US) Representative Burdick to Arlo E. Beggs concerns the pool level of Garrison Dam. The letter states that, in response to Begg's letter of January 12, Burdick has spoken with the office of the US Army Engineers and heard that the US Senate has removed the restriction on the 1,830 foot pool level without stating a new maximum. The letter states that Mr. Connor told Burdick that the US Army Engineers are acquiring land in the upper parts of the valley which will enable a 1,850 foot pool level. The letter also states that Mr. Connor had no information regarding the Turtle Lake Diversion, which would likely be handled by the US Bureau of Reclamation. The letter concludes by stating that Beggs should call JJ Walsh, Secretary of the Water Conservation Commission at Bismarck, North Dakota for information about the Turtle Lake Diversion.
