Lemke Park Area Flood Risk Management
Prior to the 2011 spring flood, the City of Fargo installed a temporary earth levee across Lemke Park to provide protection to the neighborhood. During the summer of 2011, the City converted the temporary levee into a permanent levee. The total length of this levee is approximately 900 feet. The low bidder for this project was Asplin Excavating with a bid of $201,820.95. The project was completed in 2011.
Converting this levee to permanent reduces the City’s reliance on emergency measures during a flood along with reducing the cleanup and repair costs associated with an emergency flood fight.
