Under Major Peek, District work on major projects continued to diminish because of the decline in logging and navigation. The dredging plant on the Red River was sold, and improvements were abandoned because they were unnecessary. The project on Lake Traverse was also abandoned. Logging on the Red Lake River ended. Dredging was done between the dams on the Leech and Mississippi Rivers to benefit the logging industry. Dredging on Lake of the Woods and work on lock and dam 1 continued.
