Mouse River Enhanced Flood Protection Project (MREFPP) Has Emergency Action Plan Should Flooding Occur During Construction

May 7, 2018

Minot, N.D. – As construction of the Mouse River Enhanced Flood Protection Project continues, portions of the existing levee will be removed prior to constructing the new levee. The existing levee protects properties from flows on the Mouse River up to 5,000 cfs. To ensure that the 5,000 cfs level of protection is maintained, there are several special requirements that the Contractors must follow during construction:


With these requirements in place, the properties protected by the existing levees will continue to have the 5,000 cfs level of flood protection throughout the construction process.


Construction on the first three phases is scheduled to be completed in 2020. For the latest information on the Mouse River Enhanced Flood Protection Project and the first three phases go to or search on Facebook for Mouse River Plan.
