Abstract : The proposed project provides for construction of an earthen dam on the Wild Rice River near Twin Valley, Minnesota. The location of the dam site discussed in the EIS is an alternative site than the one authorized in the House Document no. 366, 90th Congress, 2nd session. Besides the earthen dam, the project also provides for the construction of a low flow outlet works, emergency spillway, road relocations, and overlook and recreation facilities. Project purposes include flood control, recreation, and fish and wildlife development. The project would reduce flood damages along the Wild Rice River downstream of Twin Valley, along the Marsh River, and also along the Red River of the North downstream of the confluence of the Wild Rice River.
