USACE supports North Dakota flood fight
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, is currently releasing approximately 4,000 cubic feet per second, or cfs, from its Baldhill Dam, near Valley City, North Dakota. The Corps of Engineers and its contractor, Strata Corporation, from Grand Forks, North Dakota, assisted the city of Valley City by constructing around 8,000 linear feet of temporary levees to protect the community from the Sheyenne Rivers following recent weather events within the region. Corps officials completed the temporary levee construction April 26, ahead of the Sheyenne River cresting early next week. Corps officials will continue supporting the city once the construction is complete in coordination with their federal, state and local partners.
