North Oaks Flood Protection
In an effort to minimize the amount of temporary measures needed to protect properties along Lilac Lane and Peterson Parkway, the City of Fargo, with assistance from Houston Engineering, constructed a project that incorporates earthen levees, storm sewer improvements, and other associated features to provide protection to the north side residents.
Construction on the North Oaks levee began in the spring of 2011 and was completed in the late fall of 2011. The levee stretches from #2991 Peterson Parkway to Park Lane North. This levee provides continuous protection from river flooding to a river stage of approximately 44’.
