ISRB Takes Public Comments on River Management

Posted: Updated:

The international board charged with managing the Souris-Mouse River system began its two-day meeting tonight in Minot.

The International Souris River Board held a public meeting to listen to input from people with thoughts and concerns about the river system.

Some landowners along the river are worried about the extended periods of higher-than- normal water flows that rob their pastures of production.

Others are concerned about the prospect of an increased target flow for the river that would leave buildings in danger.

The Canadian chairman of the board says the input the board receives in these annual public meetings is valuable.(Russell Boals, ISRB Chairman) "The public has been very good at providing their comments and raising their issues in a very professional manner that they raise them. They're trying to understand how the basin works and if they're, if the community within the basin can be doing things that will benefit, that there's a net benefit to the public."

The ISRB continues its gathering tomorrow with the business portion of the meeting.

Among the items on the agenda is a look at how the effort is going to investigate potential management changes aimed at avoiding flooding of the magnitude experienced in 2011.
