KILGORE ' WASHINGTON (UPD-The U.S. Army's Board of Engineers -fori Rivers and Harbors, today Weighed the. results of a day-long hearing which provided heavy j criticism of a plan to develop the Potomac River Basin by building 16 major reservoirs by the year 2010.

The report recommended a comprehensive $500 million plan of flood control, recreation, water supply conservation and water quality control which should extend into the next century. Howev6r , hydroelectric power interests asked the corps to seek congressional ' authorization . to study the hydroelectric development of the Potomac before any request for authorization of sped-fic projects is brought - before Congress.
