At 15' per second you must divide by 15 to get the 1 cubic foot in place at any moment. Darling would not do the job dry. In 1969 the flow was 4mph and it covered minot for 40 days. Darling is only 26' in the channel with the remainder tapering to the shore. I estimated the capacity of lake Darling passed thru minot a minimum of once every two hours in 69. We had 5 times that much in 2011.

Sometimes the disgust the right has 4 education is too much 2 bear. After the bladders were in place, except 4 a trickle under the RR bridge, it was contained in the channel. Filter socks should not be eaten 4 breakfast.

BBL: It all flowed under the west bypass, the Darling gates and Grano and Greene crossings. It was moving at 10 mph so u can't do just width X depth. I get 15 feet per second. 26,000 divided by 15 = 1733. 100 feet by 17 feet is a rough guess and a close guess to the flow under the three bridges. Grano is approx. 26' deep in the center 4 about 40' then tapers up to the sides. The flood channel would look like the river channel under the west bypass.

Leak? What leak? Oh it is just 98,000 gallons. The price of gas will go down--you say it's up? Oh, it is that summer blend thing. We (oil) r stewards of the environment and limit our footprint (2 all private land in the badlands)some of which is too rugged 2 clean up spills says big oil. Too much for us billionaires! You don't mind if we leave some radioactive filter socks, do ya? ND Oil Can lie, pollute, destroy, pay higher than union wages and cheat at will to pocket billions.

IT'S HORRIFYING TO THINK THAT OIL PRODUCTION IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN GIVING MINOT AND SURROUNDING COMMUNITIES FLOOD PROTECTION. THE NEXT FLOOD MINOT WILL EXPERIENCE 10,000 ZOMBIE HOMES.......
