Big Stone Lake Flooding Causes Damage

March 24, 2010, 1:10 PM

Big Stone Lake Flooding Causes Damage
BIG STONE LAKE, SD - Big Stone Lake in northeast South Dakota is dropping, after more than a week of threatening homes, businesses and farms.

But many lakeside homes remain surrounded by high water, and parks near the lake and the Whetstone River are littered with remnants of the flooding.

Diane Radermacher with the Upper Minnesota River Watershed Project says the area has been lucky, though some homes around Big Stone City and neighboring Ortonville, Minn., are going to have a lot of damage.

On the Minnesota side of the lake, a peninsula just west of the city of Ortonville has required more drastic measures. The sanitary sewer lift station had to be shut down and portable toilets brought in over the weekend as floodwaters became too much for the system to handle. Some homes there also were inundated.
