We well-remember the flood of 2011 around here.
But how about the flood of 2012?
Ward County officials are trying to show state emergency officials that the county has suffered significant damage from flooding, this year.
For the past two days, state and county officials have been touring some of the hard-hit areas that have impacted more than a dozen townships.
Monday they saw the flooding of county and township roads that has happened this year as water tables rose, despite dry weather conditions.
And today, they were at Rice Lake, where water and sewer systems are in danger from the high ground water levels.
The director of Homeland Security in the state says the state and FEMA are looking at the damage to see if it reaches the one million dollar mark.
But the damage to get a disaster declaration must be to public infrastructure.
(Greg Wilz, ND Homeland Security Director) "It's limited to public infrastructure in terms of meeting that initial threshold. Once you have that declaration you can look at the individual assistance program for private property. But to get the initial presidential declaration, it does require a million dollars in damage, public infrastructure."
Wilz says Ward County is the only county in North Dakota seeking a disaster declaration for 2012 flooding.
