The Sundre well field supplies Minot, North Dakota with two-thirds of its potable water supply. The fiberglass pipeline that previously conveyed this water for 40 years was nearing the end of its life. Additionally, the US Army Corps of Engineers planned on constructing levees in downtown Minot to prevent future flooding of the Mouse River. The existing line transected these yet to be constructed flood walls. The city asked Houston Engineering, Inc. out of Bismarck to review alternatives regarding the existing line and new options for the city’s major water supply pipeline. The results of that effort determined that a new pipeline with a different alignment would cost much less than to try and piecemeal the existing line around the flood control project.
