In 1908 the Federal Reclamation Service had five projects in North Dakota.
The reclamation of land which has been effected here is noteworthy.
The estimate premised a cost of £50,000, the irrigation of 42,000 acres, and the reclamation of io,000.
In the report for 1907 of the Reclamation Service it was stated that it had dug 1881 m.
The increase of the arable land has been effected partly by the reclamation of the marshes, but mostly by the transformation of large tracts of puszta (waste prairie land) into arable land.
