(WDAY TV) -- Officials who are totaling up spring flood spending say the costs are piling up.

In Cass County alone, preliminary costs are at 2.5-million dollars. Federal, state and local experts are surveying roads, bridges and other infrastructure in 18 counties and the Spirit Lake Indian Reservation to determine the total flood costs.

Some of the costs for flood prevention and cleanup can also be included for reimbursement. This is the first step in determining whether the governor will request a presidential disaster declaration.
