This report from the United States (US) House Committee on Interior and Insular Affairs dated April 9, 1986, was written to accompany US House Resolution 1116 which seeks authorization for the construction of the Garrison Diversion Unit to help meet the water needs of North Dakota (ND). US House Resolution 1116 proposes improved repayment methods for irrigation and includes provisions that will compensate for farmland lost to the implementation of the Pick-Sloan Missouri Basin Program. This report includes a history of the Garrison Dam project, including problems encountered with the proposed implementation of irrigation which some in Congress criticized as being too costly. It also describes international concerns as the Canadian Government expressed concern that the Garrison Diversion Unit might violate the Boundary Waters Treaty of 1909. The report provides an explanation of US House Resolution 1116 and offers amendments to some of the sections of the bill. Part II to this report, dated April 22, 1986, is entitled “To Implement Certain Recommendations Pursuant to Public Law 98-360” and is presented by Morris K. Udall from the US House Committee on Interior and Insular Affairs. US House Resolution 1116 became US Public Law 99-294 on May 12, 1986.
This report is the first part of a two-part report. The second part, titled “To Implement Certain Recommendations Made Pursuant to Public Law 98-360” is dated April 22, 1986.
