Rosewood Flood Risk Reduction

Background

The City of Fargo, in conjunction with KLJ Engineering, have developed a flood risk reduction project for properties in the Rosewood development. Previous flood fights within this neighborhood required the construction of emergency sandbag and temporary clay levees.

This project features include installation of earthen levees, concrete floodwalls, storm sewer improvements, storm sewer lift station improvements, and tree plantings. There are currently two separate storm sewer lift stations adjacent to the Rosewood development that will be combined into one lift station upon completion of this project.

December 7, 2016 Update

Though one property and two small easement acquisisions needed for construction have yet to be acquired, it is anticipated that levee and floodwall construction will take place in the summer and fall of 2017.
