"During the past year in an area extending south of a line between Norfolk, Virginia and St. Louis, Missouri, it has been estimated that about 10,000 deaths and staggering economic losses were caused by malaria fever...Since the recent inauguration of river development projects on the various streams in the so-called "malaria belt" of our country, malaria control methods on impounded waters have been of increasing concern to the health workers of the South...Mosquito control on impounded waters must be constructed into the dam design and requires a careful program of reservoir preparation or conditioning of the body of water so that the shoreline will not encourage the production of the malaria vector. The shoreline preparation together with planned water level variations is called "biological control" of mosquito breeding"--Introduction, page 1.
