The rising water level in Boyer Lake, east of Lake Park, is getting close to the edges of Highway 10. The stretch of road was raised several years ago because of high water. Dave Wallis / The Forum

Boyer Lake outlet put on fast track

Email News Alerts

With sandbags protecting Highway 10 from the lapping waters of Boyer Lake, the Buffalo-Red River Watershed is moving fast to build an outlet.


The lake, which has been rising for years, is located about two miles east of Lake Park. Sunnyside Nursing Home sits on its shores.

Using "fast track" authority granted to watershed districts, a bid opening will be held Monday and if the low bid is reasonably close to the engineer's estimate, construction will likely begin this week.
