Fewer funds for flood repairs

January 3, 2012

In a memo from the North Dakota Department of Transportation to officials in the state, Local Government Engineer Paul Benning said that the state will receive $100 million less than needed to repair flood damage.

"The estimated cost to repair the damaged infrastructure is $517.12 million," Benning wrote. "Based on the type of damage and the eligibility for the Emergency Relief funds, N.D. needs $432.74 in federal aid to restore the infrastructure. However; due to extensive damage in certain areas and across the entire state, N.D. will only receive approximately $316.79 million in federal aid."

With fewer federal funds to cover disasters in the state that included 29 counties and the cities of Minot, Valley City and Fargo, additional local funds will be required to repair infrastructure that was damaged as floods ravaged the state this year.
