Abstract

The South Dakota Water Resources Institute (WRI) at South Dakota State University provides leadership on evolving water concerns and problems being faced by South Dakota citizens through research, educational opportunities for students and professionals, and community outreach.

This collection is composed of departmental records of the Institute, as well as collected reports dealing with the Missouri River Basin Project.

Historical Note

The South Dakota Water Resources Institute was conceptualized in 1964 through the Water Resources Act and began services on October 8, 1954, as an administrative unit of South Dakota State University. In September, 1990, the Institute was placed under the administrative authority of the College of Agriculture and Biological Sciences. The mission of the Institute is to provide the leadership in coordinating the research and training at the University and other affiliated educational institutions and agencies across the state in the broad area of water resources. It administers funds received from the U.S. Department of Interior, as made available through the Water Resources Research Act of 1984 and from the state of South Dakota. Funds received through these sources targeted for research are directed toward solving state, regional, and national water problems. Graduate research training, technology transfer, and information transfer are services, which are provided through the Institute.

The Water Resources Institute also houses the Water Quality Laboratory. This laboratory serves the needs of the people of the state by providing analytical services for determination of inorganic constituents (and some pesticides) in water.

Contents Note

This series is composed of material dealing with irrigation research conducted by the institute in collaboration with the South Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station. Included is a scrapbook detailing how research is conducted at the Irrigation Research Farm near Redfield, South Dakota and an annual report on research in soil management and irrigation in South Dakota. Also included is a general information sheet requesting an operating budget for the Water Resources Research Institute during the 1973 fiscal year and a pamphlet detailing analytical services available through the Institute.

The Missouri River Basin Project collected reports are composed mainly of reports collected by the Water Resources Research Institute. These reports deal mainly with the Missouri River Basin Project. Material is arranged in alphabetical order by report title.
