Work Begins On Levee To Protect Moorhead Plant

MOORHEAD, Minn. (AP) — Work has started on a clay levee to protect the Moorhead Power plant from spring flooding on the Red River.

The Forum newspaper reports Moorhead Public Service began constructing the levee Monday.

The plant houses electric distribution equipment and provides Moorhead with backup power generation.

Moorhead Public Service says its plan is to provide electric and water services to customers throughout any flood.
