Please look into how many cfs the Souris River can handle in Minot with the river banks in their current condition. The levees have not been repaired since they were damaged in the 2011 flood. We cannot handle the water that made it's way through the city in the spring of 2011.

Now, now, the city manager has assured me that they are back to pre-flood condition. (I write that with sarcasm). They are having a meeting about the 1% tax on April Fool's Day at 6:30. Hope to see you there.

Neither the city nor the Corps could manage the water in 2011. Remember the Corps stopped building the dikes after the first flood threat? Remember they said they had 6 crews ready at a moments notice to restart building if necessary? Remember when more building was desperately needed and they could only roung up 4 crews after an 18 hour search? Yep, I don't hold much faith in either group.

This is interesting reading:


It will be even more interesting when they publish the April Forecast, because Saskatchewan had a very snowy March. They have had over 6 feet of snow this winter.
