International Souris River study board gives update on river

By  | 

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.
