The Missouri River Joint Water Board (MRJWB) is hosting a series of public meetings in October to discuss the importance of the Missouri River and issues threatening the state’s greatest natural resource. Meetings will be held in Linton, Fargo and Devils Lake.
“The positive impacts of the Missouri River reach well beyond its banks,” MRJWB chairman Wade Bachmeier said. “The issues facing the river and their effects on future water usage in our state should be a concern to all citizens of North Dakota. I urge everyone to attend one of our meetings to find out how we can all work together to put the Missouri River to beneficial use for all North Dakotans.”
Scheduled meeting dates and locations:
October 17: Linton, Emmons County Courthouse Auditorium, 100 Fourth St., NW, 7-8:30 p.m.
