Due to record flows and high-water conditions occurring over the entire Rainy River Basin, we are asking assistance in documenting damages on private property within the County. The Lake of the Woods County Land and Water Planning Office and the Lake of the Woods Soil and Water Conservation District are in the process of capturing flood damages which have occurred as a result of the high-water conditions. If you have experienced damage to property, conservation practices, fields and ditches, please contact the offices identified above for the 2022 Flood Damage Inventory form. We will use this information to seek federal and state financial assistance to help with repairs and cleanup for landowners. Applicable forms and additional information are also available on both websites listed above.
In addition to documenting damage with the Flood Damage Inventory form, the Land and Water Planning Office wants to ensure any action taken to protect property and infrastructure is consistent with applicable federal, state, and local agency regulations. We encourage landowners and contractors to contact this office prior to commencing work as additional documentation may be necessary.
If you should have any questions or concerns, please contact either office indicated above.
