Funding Secured Mouse River Feasibility Study

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers released its 2016 Work Plan yesterday, which includes $200,000 in funding for Souris (Mouse) River Feasibility Study.

The purpose of the feasibility study is to assess the interconnected system of reservoirs, levees and channels within this basin and recommend modifications to existing infrastructure and potential new measures to reduce the risk of flooding.

To complete the study, the Corps will work in partnership with the Souris River Joint Water Resources Board.

Initiating a feasibility study is an important event,” said Col. Dan Koprowski, St. Paul District commander. “It provides us the opportunity to determine if there is a federal interest in constructing additional long-term flood damage reduction features in the basin.” 

A Corps feasibility study is the first step toward a federal flood risk reduction project. Its purpose is to provide Congress with the information it needs to authorize a project for implementation.

The Study will be focused on the development of alternatives to address flooding within the Souris river basin.
