NIGHT EXCAVATION AND HAULING UNDERWAY FOR SE MAIN|20 ST|21 ST UNDERPASS PROJECT

MOORHEAD – In order to remove soil from the temporary train tracks, night excavation and hauling will occur at the project site from November 29-December 10.

Crews will work from midnight-10 am to remove soil that is no longer needed from the site. No work will be done on December 4-5 (Saturday and Sunday).

The work will take advantage of frozen hauling routes to remove material during the night. Warm temperatures and afternoon sun thaw the frozen ground and make the routes impassable for soil hauling equipment.

IMPROVED WATER SITUATION EASES RESTRICTIONS

MOORHEAD – After months of water use restrictions in Moorhead and Dilworth, Moorhead Public Service has rescinded the mandatory water use limits. Voluntary water restrictions do still apply.

According to MPS, the Red River Watershed’s change back to the Drought Watch Phase represents a significant recovery from summer conditions that required mandatory restrictions. However, the Red River Watershed is still abnormally dry, and continued water conservation efforts are still needed. With this in mind, MPS is rescinding mandatory watering restrictions in favor of continuing forward with voluntary watering restrictions only.

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has revised the drought status of the Red River Watershed, relaxing it back into the “drought watch” phase. The change is part of the Statewide Drought Plan.
