Corps Assists Communities Along Rainy, Minnesota and Mississippi Rivers

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, is providing technical and direct assistance to communities following historic rain events this month.

The Corps sent flood engineers to communities along the Rainy, Minnesota and Mississippi rivers to assist local responders fighting the recent floods. The engineers are providing information on how to build sandbag levees, protect critical infrastructure and monitor the levees for potential issues.

The Corps is also providing direct assistance to residents in Warroad, Minn. The Corps’ contractor, Red Lake Builders, Inc., from Red Lake, Minn., is in the process of building temporary emergency levees and plugging interior drainage outlets. The Corps sent a small engineering team to Warroad to monitor the levee construction and assist the community.

The levee construction is expected to be finished this week.
