The Garrison Diversion Conservancy District is urging the public to attend and participate in the US Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) public meetings which will discuss interim measures to reduce dam safety risks at the Snake Creek embankment, which runs under Highway 83 and impounds Lake Audubon in North Dakota.

The Corps has presented a Lake Audubon Water Control Plan which would restrict the differential head between Lake Audubon and Lake Sakakawea, affecting the Snake Creek Pumping Plant and McClusky Canal features of the Garrison Diversion Unit Project. The State of North Dakota, Garrison Diversion Conservancy District, and numerous residents who use these features that provide for irrigation, municipal, rural, and industrial water, fish, wildlife, and other natural resource conservation and development, and recreation could be affected.

The meetings will be held at the City Auditorium in Garrison, ND, on Tuesday, June 27, from 6-8 pm and Wednesday, June 28, from 6-8 pm at the Ramkota Hotel and Conference Center in Bismarck, ND. 

The public meetings will include a presentation and an open house to allow attendees to ask questions.
