|Watershed watching the flooding areas|
Congressmen Collin Peterson took an interest in the flooding situation in Minneota on Thursday.
Here are three of the photos, which include a road retention project which was installed about three years ago. It was designed to hold back water and slowly release it downstream. The intake where the water is going into is approximately 25-30 feet above ground level.
As you can see, there is quite a bit of water being held back to help.
