Around the District

The St. Paul District recently assisted the City of Hastings with diver safety during the dewatering of the city-owned hydro plant at Lock and Dam 2.

The District Dive Coordinator worked with the city's Public Works superintendent to communicate diver safety with the dive contractor, and a Corps dive safety inspector attended the pre-dive meeting, inspected equipment and monitored dive operations throughout the project.
St. Paul District biologists and divers recently conducted mussel monitoring, six years after construction of the Capoli Slough Habitat Rehabilitation and Enhancement Project in Pool 9 near Lansing, Iowa. 

Monitoring is part of Endangered Species Act compliance for the federally endangered Higgins eye mussel. Results will be compared to pre-project monitoring to better assess the beneficial effects of the project on mussels.
Cultural resources investigations continue within the Fargo-Moorhead Metro Area Flood Risk Management Project areas for properties of significance that may merit listing on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP). 

One property on the NRHP is the Bernard Bernhardson House in Comstock, Minnesota, built in the 1870s by the first-known Swedish settler family along the Red River of the North.
