Abstract:

Flood control studies showed that the East Grand Forks levee project authorized in 1953, but not constructed, still was economically feasible and recommended further study under the Corps postauthorization program. Grand Forks flood control studies found four measures which qualified for further study and possible implementation under the Corps Small Project Continuing Authority. An urban drainage master plan proposed for the developing fringe of the city would require future developments to incorporate ponding areas to temporarily store runoff to limit peak discharges to those that occur under existing land conditions. Because the flood control investigation was transferred from the urban study to the Section 205 authority, a detailed environmental impact assessment and possibly an EIS were also deferred. Similarly, the Corps developed the urban drainage master plan for Grand Forks as a planning service. Implementation of the plan is the prerogative of the city and do not involve the Corps.
