    MINOT, ND - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, and the Souris River Joint Water Resources Board, or SRJB, are holding a public meeting to discuss the draft Souris "Mouse" River Basin Feasibility Study and Environmental Assessment November 16th.

    The meeting will be held at the Minot Municipal Auditorium, Room 201, 420 3rd Ave., Minot, ND. An open house will begin at 6:30 p.m., followed by a formal presentation and public comments/input from 7-9 p.m.

    The purpose of the feasibility study is to assess the interconnected system of reservoirs, levees and channels within this basin and recommend modifications to existing infrastructure and potential new measures to reduce the risk of flooding. The Corps' feasibility study is the first step toward a federal flood risk reduction project, and its purpose is to provide Congress with the information it needs to authorize a project for implementation.

    The proposed project consists of the construction of what is currently referred to as the 'Maple Diversion' or high-flow bypass along with a short tieback levee east of the U.S. 83 Bypass within the city of Minot. The Maple Diversion is a feature of the SRJB's larger Mouse River Enhanced Flood Protection Project.

    The public review period will end Nov. 30. Official comments concerning the proposed project can be submitted to David Potter, Corps biologist, by calling (651) 290-5713, via email at david.f.potterusace.army.mil, or by mail at U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Attention: Regional Planning and Environment Division North, 180 Fifth St. E., Suite 700, St. Paul, MN 55101-1678. Written comments will become part of the study's public record and used in the study's environmental review document. Therefore commenters should exercise care before submitting personal information with their comments.

     WASHINGTON (AP) - The Senate has narrowly confirmed President Donald Trump's nominee to a key post at the Environmental Protection Agency. Energy industry lawyer William Wehrum is Trump's choice to oversee regulation of air pollution sources. His nomination was approved on a vote of 49 to 47 today to serve as assistant administrator for air and radiation.
 
     Wehrum served at EPA during under President George W. Bush. Republican Sen. Susan Collins of Maine joined Democrats in voting against Wehrum's nomination. Four senators didn't vote.
 
     Wehrum is expected to help administrator Scott Pruitt in an ongoing push to reverse or delay Obama-era regulations, including those seeking to decrease emissions from coal-fired power plants. His past clients include the American Petroleum Institute and other pro-fossil fuel groups he will now regulate at EPA.
