And currently the existing water treatment plant is located in the heart of downtown approximately right here where it says Grand Forks and in 1997 there was 100 year flood that inundated almost the entire city but the infrastructure, mostly the water treatment plant, really felt it because the flood waters came rushing in and filled all the basins with sludge and mud and all kinds of things you wouldn't want in a clean water supply. So when this project came up, and it was time to fix those issues that were going on, the city got serious about where they wanted to put that new water treatment plant project and what that means from a flooding standpoint and they actually decided to move the project five miles, approximately five miles west of the existing plant and what is currently outside of city limits but is being rezoned to be within it inside of an old farmers field. That gets it outside of the flood plain regardless of having the flood wall there.
