Construction Updates

The Red River Valley Water Supply Project is now under construction! In December 2020, ICS and Michels began construction on the Missouri River intake wetwell near Washburn, ND. 

Construction contracts have been awarded for the Sheyenne River discharge structure and an initial pipeline segment on the main transmission line, with construction of both features anticipated to begin in spring 2021.  

Industrial Builders, Inc, will be constructing the discharge structure, which is located near the Sheyenne River, downstream of the future control valve structure. 

Pipeline construction will begin in Carrington Township, North Dakota and will install approximately 1½ miles of 72-inch steel pipe and accessory items. This section of the pipeline will primarily utilize open cut construction methods with a single trenchless crossing located under the Red River Valley & Western Railroad and U.S. Highway 52/281.
