Abstract:

A standing structure investigation was conducted on seventeen farmsteads located along the Souris River in north-central North Dakota, south and east, of Minot. The structures may be impacted by activities related to the Souris River Basin Flood Control Project. The impact would be an increase in flood water levels due to greater water discharges from the Alameda and Rafferty reservoirs in Canada. This would result in a concomitant increase in water released from Lake Darling on the Souris River. More than 150 structures, located on the seventeen sites, were surveyed. Several of the farmsteads had been abandoned for several years, but the majority are occupied by either the owner or a renter. None of the sites met the eligibility requirements for listing on the National Register of Historic Places. HRA recommends that no further work be conducted on the seventeen surveyed farmsteads.
