USACE to Hold Meetings on Mouse River Project

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, and the Souris River Joint Water Resources Board, or SRJB, will hold two public meetings to review preliminary plans for and solicit public input on a project which would provide increased flood protection along the Mouse River near Minot, North Dakota.

The first meeting will be held April 8 at the school gymnasium at the Burlington High School, 400 McCanna Parkway, Burlington. The second meeting will be held on April 9 in room 201 at the Minot Auditorium, 420 3rd Ave. Southwest, Minot.

Both meetings will have formal presentation and public comments from 7-9 p.m. The public is also invited to attend an open house that will begin at 6 p.m.

The SRJB is proposing to construct a portion of the Mouse River Enhanced Flood Protection project in the corridor that would include building around 17.5 miles of levees and 3 miles of floodwall. The project would also include, among other things, the building of 25 transportation closure structures, 24 storm water pump stations and associated ponding areas and two new bridges.

This project would allow flows up to 27,400 cubic feet per second. These construction activities are proposed to take place between Burlington to the downstream end of Minot.
