ST. PAUL - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers St. Paul District and the city of Drayton, N.D., will host a public meeting from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Nov. 15 at the Hastings Landing Restaurant in Drayton to discuss a potential fish passage project at Drayton Dam on the Red River.
The corps is proposing to implement fish passage at Drayton Dam as a mitigation feature for the proposed Fargo-Moorhead area flood diversion, which could potentially impact fish on the Red River. The Drayton project has been proposed to reduce potential adverse effects.
At the meeting the corps will present the plan, solicit public input and discuss any issues or concerns. The meeting will also outline funding and a potential schedule for the project.
For more information, call the city of Drayton at (701) 454-3590 or the Corps of Engineers at (651) 290-5260.
