Flood control project earns another national award


The largest infrastructure project in Minot’s history continues to earn national recognition.

Phases 2-3 of the Mouse River Enhanced Flood Protection Project have been named the American Public Works Association’s Public Works Project of the year, the second national award in recent months for Phases 2-3.

“We’ve made great progress to protect our community and others throughout the river basin, but we have a lot of work left to do,” Public Works Director Dan Jonasson said. “Phases 2-3 are vital to the overall project’s success, and we’re grateful for the work done by the contractors, consultants, and everyone involved with the project.”

Phases 2-3 are mostly in southwest Minot, including work near the Souris Valley Golf Course and Forest Road. The phases were completed in October 2020 at a cost of $40 million. The projects include more than 8,900 feet of earthen levees, a removable road closure, multiple levee ramps, interior drainage pump stations, and 1,600 feet of stream bank restoration.

The City of Minot collaborates with many partners on the overall project, including the Souris River Joint Board, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Federal Emergency Management Administration, the North Dakota State Water Commission, the Minot Park District, and the Ward County Water Board, as well as elected officials at the local, state, and federal levels.
