FARGO - Sandbag removal in Cass County should be completed next week, according to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

At the end of Wednesday, crews have removed 12,654 tons of sand - the equivalent of about 634,000 sandbags - since floodwaters receded after historic river crests this spring.

Spruce Valley Corp. of Middle River, Minn., which was awarded the $1.245 million contract to remove sandbags in the county, will be making its final pass to pick up sandbags used for private levees.

Residents wishing to have crews haul sandbags away must put them on the curb no later than Monday.

The company began work May 6 and were given 45 days to finish the job.
