City looks for input on High Water Marks

To some, the memory of the 2011 flood is all too recent and painful. To others new to the community it's a story often told but not realized. To help memorialize the impact the rushing waters from the Souris River had on the valley in Minot, the City is embarking on a HIgh Water Initiative. The initiative will mark about 15 locations that witnessed some of the deepest waters rushing through the valley. The following designs were engineered by Minot State University Graphic Design students:

The goal of the HWM initiative is to make citizens aware of the risk of flooding and be more resilient by preparing for a flood. The among the sites chosen are the ND State Fairgrounds, Oak Park,  Roosevelt Park & Zoo, and Jack Hoeven Baseball Fields. Water levels range from 5-15 feet above ground level, which was calculated based on models of the 2011 flood from Ackerman-Estvold Engineering.
