Abstract : The flood control plan consists of a levee surrounding Crafton, North Dakota, add vicinity, and a channel which would allow flood water to bypass the leveed area. The proposed plan would result in the direct loss of about 5 acres of floodplain forest and 230 acres of highly fertile agricultural land. Another 130 acres of agricultural land would be used for spoil disposal, thereby reducing productivity temporarily. About 0.1 miles of natural river channel would be disrupted.
