Abstract : The Lake Darling project is the second phase of the total flood control plan for the Souris Valley in North Dakota. The completed Minot channel project and the existing Lake Darling Dam provide a channel capacity of 5,000 cfs, or protection against a 15-year flood. Four floods in the last 15 years have exceeded the 5,000 cfs capacity. The Lake Darling Dam has been identified as a high hazard dam because of its location above Minot. Known problems of the structure include inadequate spillway capacity and embankment slopes. (Author)
