City Planning Permanent Flood Protection Around VCSU

October 10, 2013

This map shows the preliminary design by city engineering firm KLJ to create permanent flood protection around the VCSU campus.

Valley City's Flood Task Force met Tuesday to discuss permanent flood protection. The group received an update from Chad Petersen of city engineering firm KLJ about a proposed plan to build flood protection around the Valley City State University campus.
For the first phase of flood protection, the city plans to widen the floodway and install permanent and removable levees around the college campus from Third Avenue Southeast, up College Street, and over to and along Fifth Avenue Southwest. This area consists of land the city bought to build permanent flood protection.
The project plan protects the area three feet above the updated 100-year flood level, which is 20.69 feet. Petersen said the floods of 2009 and 2011 were considered 125-year floods.
