A municipality owning or permanently controlling property where a proposed dam is to be constructed may:
(1) construct a dam on the property and across that portion of the Red River of the North that forms a part of the boundary common to this state and the state of North Dakota to conserve water for municipal, commercial, and domestic use; and
(2) construct, in connection with the dam structures, fishways, raceways, sluiceways, and wasteways necessary or convenient for the proper construction and utility of the dam and as may be required by law.
If required by law or treaty, the municipality must first obtain the consent of the United States and of the state of North Dakota for the construction.
