Public meetings set on James River flood controlJAMESTOWN, N.D. — The Army Corps of Engineers is holding public meetings in southeast North Dakota this week on James River flood control.
Record runoff in 2009 and higher-than-normal river flows the past two years led to flooding in the watershed. The corps and the James River Joint Water Resources District are studying the potential for cost-effective flood control measures.
Meetings are Tuesday in Jamestown, Wednesday in Carrington, Thursday in LaMoure and Friday in Oakes.
