BURLINGTON, N.D. (KMOT) - The city of Burlington on Tuesday will celebrate the completion of its share of the regional flood protection project.

The project included rebuilding a bridge as well as earthen levees and a system to control groundwater in the event of flooding.

The work makes Burlington the first city in the Souris River Basin to have full protection from a 2011-type flood event.

The city is holding a community barbecue Tuesday from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Burlington Recreation Complex, with a brief program at 6 p.m.

Your News Leader will have more coverage on Burlington’s flood protection later on Tuesday.
