Minnewaukan Move Underway
Valley News Live
A multimillion-dollar effort to move the community of Minnewaukan out of reach of the chronically flooding Devils Lake is underway. The Federal Government is providing six million dollars to buy out homes, move others, and build water and sewer lines and access roads to the site, dubbed New Minnewaukan.
It`s about a mile away and 30 feet higher than the original townsite. Many buildings already have been moved, along with a highway on the town`s east edge.
A new $11 million school is also under construction.
