Today we reach the final section of our project “Living with Water.”
Over the course of five weeks, we’ve looked at the geography of our drainage systems, at flooding and drought, and at water quality.
Water supply has not been a problem in our region in the past few years – but that will change.
As I write, the National Weather Service reports that the region is in moderate drought and that the chance of flooding this year is very low.
This is a reminder that too little water is as great a problem as too much water – and that the region needs to deal with shortage as well as surplus.
The North Dakota Department of Agriculture says it will continue to monitor three pesticides found last year in the Red River in concentrations approaching at-risk levels for fish and other aquatic life to see if the results repeat themselves.
