Hoeven Presses For River Management Study

Posted: Updated:

North Dakota Senator John Hoeven is urging Secretary of State John Kerry to approve a study of the management system for the Souris-Mouse River system in the US and Canada.

In a letter to the secretary, Hoeven says what's called the "Plan of Study" for river management changes, "represents the best opportunity to capture lessons learned from the 2011 floods and provide long-term flood protection in the Souris River Basin."

The Plan of Study will look at specific areas of the river management plan, with the goal of suggesting ideas for changes that would result in better flood protection for Minot and other areas along the Mouse River.

The International Souris River Board is recommending the 2-point-1 million dollar study of policies that could be changed to improve management of the river system.

The cost would be split between Canada and the United States and spread out over two years.

The Secretary of State must approve the expenditure
