Mouse River Flood Protection Project on Display

The City of Minot will next week host a public meeting on the Mouse River Enhanced Flood Protection Project draft Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement.

The meeting, organized by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District and the Souris River Joint Water Resource Board (SRJB), will be held December 15 in room 201 at the Minot Auditorium.

According to the Mouse River Plan, the SRJB is proposing to construct the first segments of a flood damage reduction project in the corridor that would include building approximately 18.9 miles of levees and 2.7 miles of floodwall.

The plan also includes, among other things, the building of 21 transportation closure structures, 23 storm water pump stations and associated ponding areas and the reconstruction or modification of six bridges. The project is designed to pass flows up to 27,400 cubic feet per second.

The SRJB submitted a request to the Corps to make alterations to the federal flood damage reduction project in Minot in order to begin construction on the first three segments of the Mouse River Plan.

As a requirement of this request, a draft programmatic EIS has been developed to assess impacts that may be caused by the project.

Public input provided at these meetings will be used to assist in preparing the final programmatic EIS in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act, or NEPA.
