Drayton worries about flood protection after FEMA orders dike removed

DRAYTON, N.D.--Portions of a dike that has kept Drayton residents safe from floodwaters for almost 20 years must be removed, a federal agency has declared.

Rob Boll, Vice-President at Koda Bank in Drayton, views the Red River from the city dike on one of the FEMA lots that were bought out following the 1997 flood. FEMA considers the dike a structure that must be removed to comply with their regulations and the city of Drayton is looking for a resolution to keep the dike in place for the city's flood protection. photo by Eric Hylden/Grand Forks Herald
