Abstract : The authorized Souris River Basin project is a flood control project for urban and rural reaches of the Souris River in North Dakota. The flood control features in Canada include flood storage in Alameda and Rafferty reservoirs in Saskatchewan, Canada, and the operation of a proposed Boundary to Rafferty reservoir diversion and the existing Boundary Dam for flood control purposes in North Dakota. Features in the United States include modification of the gated outlet structure at the existing Lake Darling Dam for flood control; mitigation to U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for project-related impacts; compensation to adversely impacted properties in reaches impacted by project operation in North Dakota and Manitoba; and a water control plan to release flood storage safely downstream. The purchase and operation of flood storage in Saskatchewan is a joint effort between Canada and the United States.
