Climate Change Resilience Study


Climate Change Resilience Study

The City of Moorhead received a State of Minnesota grant from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) to study stormwater, wastewater, and community climate resilience to localized flooding during and after heavy rain events. The City will use this grant to develop climate-resilient strategies to reduce risk to vulnerable community assets resulting from increased rainfall intensities caused by climate change.

Public Meeting 

On October 26, 2022 City staff held a Public Meeting at the Hjemkomst Center. 

Online Survey 

The City of Moorhead would like your help in identifying areas in the project study area that flood during rain events. Place a point on the map where flooding has been observed and provide as much detail as possible. If you have more than one location or more than one occurrence at the same location please submit the form and you will be provided with a link back to the form where you can submit additional locations. 

The Study area was chosen because it is more susceptible to change in precipitation due to the vintage of the infrastructure.
