MINOT, N.D. — The city of Minot this week is starting work on a two-year project to protect its water treatment plant from future floods.
A ground-breaking ceremony is scheduled Thursday for the $25 million project. Most of the construction is being paid for with federal money.
The plant is the only source of drinkable water for the city, Minot Air Force Base and many rural residents in the area. More than 100,000 people were put on a boil order when the plant was hit by Souris River flooding in 2011.
