Mouse River EIS Available, USACE Says

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, said in its latest release that they recently posted the final Mouse River Enhanced Flood Protection Project Environmental Impact Statement, or final EIS, to its website

The Souris River Joint Water Resources Board, or SRJB, is proposing to construct the first segments of a multiphase flood risk reduction project and have submitted a request to the Corps to alter the current federal flood damage risk reduction project in Minot, North Dakota.

The proposed project includes approximately 18.1 miles of new levees, 2.6 miles of new floodwalls, two channel realignments totaling 1.6 miles, 2 high-flow bypass diversions, 20 transportation closure structures, the reconstruction or modification of six bridges, 111.6 acres of overbank excavation and the acquisition of more than 900 properties.

This project is a separate, yet parallel effort, from that of the Corps’ Souris River Basin feasibility study, USACE said.

It is primarily a state and locally funded plan while the Corps’ study will determine if federal participation is feasible in accordance with federal laws and regulations.
