This report by United States Representative Usher L. Burdick dated August 25, entitled “Congress Asked to Investigate Army at Garrison,” states that Burdick has introduced a resolution in the United States House of Representatives calling for the investigation of land requisitioning for the Garrison Dam Project. The report states the Army Corp of Engineers are engaged in proceedings “far in excess of that required for storage of the 17 million acre-feet and in excess of that 1,830 foot pool level operation agreed to,” which, according to Burding, violates Public Law 534 and Senate Document 247. The letter states that Burdick believes the higher pool level would destroy agricultural land, flood irrigation projects, destroy part of the Great Northern railroad bed, and flood part of Williston, North Dakota. The report does include the year in which it was created.
