Small But Mighty Tour

Don’t call it the Souris! The river, beginning in Saskatchewan, winding its way through north-central North Dakota and finally returning to Canada, is known by multiple names, but it is usually referred to as the Mouse River. Do not let the name fool you; while a mouse may be small, the Mouse River is a force to be reckoned with. Containing it in its banks has been the work of the Souris River Joint Board and its partners for 14 years; this flood protection is essential in Minot and the surrounding region. Join us for a tour of this important flood protection project. The tour will travel to Lake Darling to view the dams and reservoirs on the U.S. side of the Mouse River. Next travel to Burlington where flood control has been completed and the city is completely protected from 500-year flood levels. We will then travel through the Minot flood system getting to see some of the largest pump stations within the state and multiple phases of flood protection, some completed and some in construction. This is a tour you do not want to miss! This tour begins and ends in Minot. The public is invited to attend the tour, which costs $30 per person, and includes transportation, informational materials, meals, refreshments and a one-year subscription to the North Dakota Water magazine. Registration is required for this tour. For questions or to register, contact Julie Ellingson at 701-223-8332 or jellingson@ndwater.net. ...

Quality Water in the Southwest Tour

New demands for water continue to challenge the region, as projects like the Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library in Medora are scheduled to open in the next few years. Learn about how quality water is essential to the operation of Odermann Organics, a family-owned farm producing organic beef in Billings County just north of Belfield. This tour begins and ends in Dickinson.
