Bouret Dam

Sheyenne, ND
Completion Date 
February 2021

The Bouret Dam Project consisted of the removal of an existing concrete dam and replacing it with a rock riffle system.  A detailed water management plan was implemented so that river flows would by-pass the work area. This allowed crews the ability to removed the dam and the sediment could be excavated and exported to obtain a stable subgrade.  Once the subgrade was established, a rock riffle system was installed which included various sizes of field stone rip rap and boulders.  The project ultimately allowed upstream fish passage, improved river connectivity, and enhanced fish habitat.
