Minot Kicks Off Flood Protection Scheme

The City of Minot, North Dakota, officially broke ground on the Souris Valley flood protection project yesterday.

John Hoeven, Senator for North Dakota, Lt. Gov. Brent Sanford and Col. Sam Calkins with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers joined local leaders to celebrate groundbreaking on the first three phases of flood protection that will cost almost $100 million.

“This flood protection is vital to the well-being of families and businesses in the Minot area,” said Senator John Hoeven.

“It takes tremendous dedication to move large infrastructure projects like this forward. We deeply appreciate everyone who has helped achieve this milestone, and we’ll continue working to support the construction of comprehensive flood protection for the entire Souris River Valley.”

Senator Hoeven had worked with USACE since last July to resolve a delay in getting a federal review completed by USACE, which finally occurred in December. The completion enabled the Souris River Joint Board to award contracts for constructing flood control infrastructure.

Earlier this week, the city started clearing trees along the river, in advance of a long summer of construction.
