Description:On cover: The Zonal Project Watered Area census.
The Watered Area Census was undertaken to furnish basic, quantitative data on those watered areas included within the scope of present MCWA operations. The census was designed to obtain information on (1) the total watered acreage and� linear footage existing within the mile control zone of MCWA projects, (2) the percentage of watered areas of malarial and non-malarial significance, (3) the total watered acreage and footage eliminated by drainage, and (4) the status of existing watered areas in regard to permanency. These data were needed to describe more accurately the magnitude of the anopheline control problem, to evaluate more definitely the physical accomplishments of the MCWA program, and to demonstrate the value of species sanitation in terms of financial savings. Such data are invaluable--and in some cases, vital--in justifying MCWA expenditures, in requesting new appropriations, in planning and estimating the costs of new programs, and in the general administration of the entire MCWA program.
