The report is expected to form the basis for discussions this summer between Canadian and American probably beginning in July. Ottawa demanded a moratorium on the Garrison project last saying it threatened serious damage to the Souris and Red Rivers before they flow into Manitoba. Washington refused to stop work but ordered a new study of the project and pledged to abide by its treaty obligations.

This increased volume of water would reduce the proportion of undesirable salts found in the river as a result of an influx of irrigation water. while irrigation nearly double the historic of salts and other impurities reaching the the concentrations would be of major because they would be diluted by an increased flow of water. In the report pro- poses eliminating some farm areas from the irrigation scheme which have high salt levels in the replacing them with areas having lower salt levels.
