Grand Forks mulls plan to add height to dikes

Email

GRAND FORKS - If flooding on the Red River were to exceed the height of Grand Forks' dikes, it could cost the city $4.15 million to raise the dikes another three feet, City Engineer Al Grasser told the City Council on Monday.

It'll cost another $3.75 million to clean up the extra clay and sandbags afterwards, he said, for a grand total of $7.9 million.
