Description

This collection of letters and reports, dated February 4, 1960, contains correspondences from the US Department of the Interior, the US Bureau of Reclamation, the US Fish and Wildlife Service, the US Bureau of the Budget and other “interested federal agencies.” These correspondences discuss the risks and benefits of further development of the Missouri River Basin project in order to provide irrigation, more dependable municipal water supply, more dependable water supply to local industries and wildlife areas, as well as further development of flood control, drainage, and recreation. This extension would primarily benefit areas in North and South Dakota. The proposal created some concern that Southern states would be adversely impacted by the project extension; however, several of the reports reflect confidence that Southern states won’t be adversely impacted. The proposed plan would provide irrigation to 250,000 acres of land and at least one report notes that the irrigation in North Dakota is a benefit meant to off-set the loss of lands from the Garrison Dam. This document does not mention the Three Affiliated Tribes of Fort Berthold or any tribes who lost land due to the dam projects in North and South Dakota. Document contains illustrations, maps, and tables.
