About Middle Branch - Project # 2
Located in Hazelton and Thompson Townships of Kittson County and built in the 1960’s, the Middle Branch Project was a cooperative effort between the District, the Soil Conservation Service, and the Kittson Soil and Water Conservation District funded through the federal PL-566 program. The project encompasses 9.62 miles of channel improvements for flood protection and agricultural water management, and one mile of channel improvement for flood prevention only. The 9.62 miles is designed to pass a 10-year frequency flood discharge, and the one-mile (located on the main channel) is designed for a 25 year frequency discharge.
