The Stutsman County Water Resource Board tabled consideration of a feasibility study to repair or remove a dam in Fried Township.

Mandar Nangare, water resources engineer for Barr Engineering, told the board Wednesday that a feasibility study could cost up to $42,000 depending on the number of options explored.

The North Dakota Water Commission would cover 35 percent of the cost, leaving the Water Resource Board with a bill of up to $27,000.

“We don’t have the money to go into a big project,” said Joel Lees, board chairman.

The motion to table included a request that further research be conducted as to the ownership of the dam and other options that might be used to cover repair costs.

The Water Resource Board also found no fault with an increase in the size of a culvert in Courtenay Township. The township board is responsible for the final decision but is required to get input from the Water Resource Board before proceeding.
