In March 2017, local landowners came to the Board of Managers, Buffalo-Red River Watershed District (BRRWD), with a request to provide improved drainage along 220th ST in Sections 31 and 32, Mitchell Township, Wilkin County, to alleviate frequent flooded fields and crop loss. At their March 27, 2017, meeting, the Board authorized Houston Engineering, Inc., (HEI) to conduct a preliminary investigation of several alternatives that would take the water directly west along 220th Street (one mile south of CSAH No. 26).
The BRRWD has scheduled a landowner informational meeting to discuss possible 220th ST drainage Improvements on Thursday, August 10, 2017, at 7:30 AM in the BRRWD Barnesville Office, 1303 4th AVE NE. The meeting notice and HEI’s preliminary investigation with maps are linked below.
