The Pembina County Water Resource District continues mitigation efforts in conjunction with the ND National Guard to stabilize erosion on Bourbanis Dam. Two Blackhawk helicopters and National Guard personnel placed nearly 160 one-ton sandbags in the areas of most concern.  This effort will continue throughout the day on Wednesday. Crews will remain in place overnight to monitor Bourbanis Dam for any changes. The remaining Tongue River dams are performing as designed. ND Highway 5 will remain closed to allow for the staging of necessary supplies and equipment for this effort. Levels at Renwick Dam near Cavalier have dropped; however, there is still potential for high flows from Bourbanis Dam resulting in a rise in the levels at Renwick Dam. See Full Story.
