Crystal Springs Flooding

Crystal Springs Flooding

Posted: Updated:

Sandbagging efforts are in full force this evening as the spring melt is well underway.

Swollen coulees and flooded ditches are being reported all throughout the valley.

This is the Crystal Springs area around 7 p.m. --- about a mile south of the Minot Family YMCA.

Spring run off is rushing through the neighborhood.

Homeowners are sandbagging the north road --- attempting to keep the water within the ditch.

A second assembly line is blocking the culvert.

If there's anything happy to be said about the situation --- the young men you see helping are members of the Minot State University hockey team.

...

Across town in southeast Minot along highway 52, the water from Puppy Dog Coulee is crossing 37th Ave southeast.

The water is filling ditches.

So far, no structures have been reported in danger at that location this evening.

Ward County Emergency Management officials advise that travelers should proceed with caution, especially at night, because of the increased risk of vehicles getting stuck or hydroplaning due to the high waters.

For questions or concerns please call the Flood Information phone number at 822-7202.

    Call it a case of deja vu, but Ward County voters can expect to see a bond request in front of them early next year, asking for almost the exact amount that they previously approved to build a new county office building and expand the jail.
