The District Engineer is evaluating a permit application from the Souris River Joint Board for BU-1 Burlington Phase of the Mouse River Enhanced Flood Protection Project (MREFPP). In 2018 an individual permit was issued to authorize a combination of phases that could, if no additional phases were completed, provide an interim increase in flood protection for the City of Minot to 10,000 cfs. This combination of phases is referred to as Construction Stage 1.5. Another individual permit was issued in 2019 for reconstruction of the Colton Avenue Bridge in Burlington. BU-1 is designed to increase flood protection for the City of Burlington. The proposal includes 8,770 feet of levee; seepage cut-of wall; interior stormwater storage areas; levee ramps for maintenance and inspection access; the Kittelson Pump Station and interior drainage improvements; overbank excavation; river bank and levee stabilization; and municipal infrastructure modifications and improvement. The project would impact approximately 0.71-acre/1,035 linear feet of the Des Lacs River, 1.26 acres/2,310 linear feet of the Souris (Mouse) River and 1.12 acres of permanent and 1.19 acres of temporary impact to jurisdictional wetlands. The project is located in the City of Burlington in Sections 1 and 2, Township 155 North, Range 84 West, Latitude 48.280087° North, Longitude -101.421408° West, Ward County, North Dakota.
