103F.179 SELECTION OF PROJECTS.
Subdivision 1. Evaluation of area and sites; federal cooperation.
Before a grant is made, a
priority system shall be devised for the selection of projects to receive the aid. The Board of Water
and Soil Resources is the granting authority and shall cooperate with the United States Army
Corps of Engineers, the Department of Natural Resources, the United States Soil Conservation
Service and the Area II Action Committee in analysis of the general floodplain management plan
for the area and in hydrological and engineering studies on specific proposed sites. From that
information, the Board of Water and Soil Resources shall determine the relative severity of the
flooding problem which would be wholly or partly solved by each project. The range of priorities
based on these findings shall provide a basis for selection of project sites.
Subd. 2. Project requirement for each watershed.
Notwithstanding the requirement in
subdivision 1 that project selection be based on a priority system, not more than one project may
be located within any one of the Cottonwood, Lac Qui Parle, Redwood, Yellow Medicine, and
Yellow Bank Rivers' watersheds unless agreed upon by the Area II Action Committee composed
of representatives of each of those watersheds.
