HORACE, N.D. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, and the Fargo-Moorhead Diversion Board of Authority hosted a 1997 Flood Commemoration and Groundbreaking Ceremony for the Fargo-Moorhead Metropolitan Area Flood Risk Management Project April 17. The ground breaking was held where the diversion project’s inlet control structure will be located, south of Horace, North Dakota. The day was selected because it was the 20tn anniversary of the day the Red River of the North crested in Fargo and Moorhead during the historic flood of 1997. – USACE photo by Shannon Bauer

FRONTENAC, Minn. –Brandon Olson works the auger and Thomas Burrows, both St. Paul District channels and harbors, measures the ice at the Mississippi River’s Lake Pepin Feb. 15. Starting at around 8:15 a.m. at Camp Lacupolis, crew members rode an airboat to various points of the lake and used an auger to drill through the ice. They then measured the thickness of the ice through the holes. They said the thickest ice measured 17 inches, located about 1 mile southeast of Lake City. But that quickly changed just 3 miles north of Lake City, where the crew encountered open water. – USACE photos by John Barker
