On September 14, 1965, a Conference attended by representatives of the states of Minnesota and North Dakota and Department of Health, Education, and Welfare was held to evaluate the effects of pollution on the interstate waters of the Red River of the North, and to recommend abatement action if such pollution could be demonstrated. The representative of North Dakota expressed a desire to ascertain the degree of bacteriological pollution from each of the sources listed in the Federal report, and recommended further study to pinpoint the extremely high bacterial densities in the river, so that effective remedial action might be taken. The request resulted in the bacteriological survey presented here.
