about the project
As development of the Mouse River Enhanced Flood Protection Project continues, the International Souris River Board is also working to review operational plans to determine if changes can be made to alleviate the potential of future flooding risks. The International Souris River Board monitors the apportionment of waters at the two US/Canadian border crossings.
A periodic review of the operating plan is required under the 1989 agreement. However, due to unprecedented flooding in the Souris River basin in 2011, basin residents have asked that additional flood protection measures be evaluated beyond what is currently provided under the 1989 agreement.
