Flood protection project continues along Minnesota River
GRANITE FALLS -- Water levels on the Minnesota River continue to run high and so does interest in flood protection by residents living along it.
The city of Granite Falls has nearly completed its removal of six homes on Prentice Street along the river. It expects to award bids next month on an estimated $250,000 project to develop a 1,600-foot-long earthen platform between the remaining 14 homes and the river, according to City Manager Bill Lavin.
