Flood Protection

The City of Grand Forks has been working with several community, state and federal partners to provide the most complete and extensive flood protection for our residents.

The City of Grand Forks, in conjunction with the City of East Grand Forks, Minnesota and the St. Paul District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, is pursuing a flood protection project for the two communities to prevent a repeat of the 1997 flood disaster. The federal government authorized the project in December of 1998.

The total cost of the project is estimated at $386 million. An approximate breakdown of the funding sources is shown in the pie chart below.
