Lower Heart Field Investigations Being Conducted

The Lower Heart Water Resource District will be conducting various field data collection and investigation activities associated with the Lower Heart Levee System in Mandan. Anticipated work includes collecting video footage of the inside of drainage structures through the levee embankment, geotechnical drilling and collecting of field samples along and in areas adjacent to the levee embankment, and field topographic surveys. These activities are part of the Lower Heart/Mandan Flood Risk Reduction project in an effort to gain FEMA re-accreditation of the levee system. It is anticipated that these activities will begin in mid- to late-August with completion by mid- to late-October.
