With this report, the Department of Water Resources concludes a seven-year reconnaissance investigation of the North Coastal area. This investigation has been part of the department's traditional and continuing activities in planning for statewide water development. The objective of the reconnaissance program was to formulate plans by which the water resources of the region can be integrated with the State's expanding economy through orderly, staged development. The planning emphasis has been directed towards major water conservation projects; however, all aspects of water control and utilization have been considered. The planning framework presented herein is thus multiple-purpose in nature; it provides for water conservation for local and export requirements, flood control, power generation, fisheries and wildlife preservation and enhancement, and recreation.
