Corps of Engineers reroutes Wild Rice River through structure
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, rerouted the Wild Rice River through the Wild Rice River Structure March 31. Rerouting the Wild Rice River was a major milestone for the Fargo, North Dakota/Moorhead, Minnesota Flood Risk Management Project. After three years of construction, Ames Construction, Inc., permanently diverted the Wild Rice River through a gated concrete structure, a project first. This reroute will allow Ames to complete construction of a dam embankment across the existing Wild Rice River channel.
