Lake Audubon drought draw down plan sparks concerns

The snake creek embankment that separates Lake Sakakawea and Lake Audubon is more than 70 years old, and in 2005 it was put to a heavy test when the elevation differential between the two lakes reached 41 feet. The result of that differential sparked a concern within the Corps of Engineers that has now led to a proposed operational change for Lake Audubon in similar situations, but it’s likely to impact those reliant on the McClusky Canal. Lauran Donovan with the Bismarck Tribune has the story.
