(WDAY TV) -- The U.S. Army Corps says there needs to be a study of the Souris River.

And North Dakota is ready to pay for it. The State Water Commission will cover the 45 thousand dollar cost. The flood protection study will determine if the federal government shares the costs of permanent flood protection for Minot, and surrounding areas.

The Souris River flooded more than 4 thousand homes and businesses in the summer of 20-11.
