International Souris River study board gives update on river

Members of the Minot community got to learn more about the Souris River Basin this evening.

The International Souris River Study Board, with members from Canada and the U-S, hosted a public meeting for community members to ask questions about how the board intends to safely protect the mouse river as well as those living near it.

“ So flood insurance, flood protection, and it's not just about floods it’s also about water supply and just keeping the Souris basin, I guess healthy so we are looking at climate change and how we would manage water in different scenarios,” said Jeff Woodward, a member of the international Souris River Board.
