Island Park Levee

Here is a 360-degree view of the Island Park levee in Fargo. The permanent levee was originally built to about 41 feet, though it has since settled to 40 feet in some spots.

With the higher river crest projections, New Jersey-based Portadam, Inc. was called in and was installing a portable cofferdam on top of the levee this morning.

The large brick building in the panorama is Prairie St John’s Clinic — it’s well below the levee. See a satellite view of the area.

    Great photos and commentary, Bob. It’s riveting.
