Barnes County hopes to collect clay from dikes

Valley City, ND (WDAY TV) - Valley City leaders are talking dike removal with water levels there going below flood stage over the weekend. The city is now taking bids from local contractors, but they're not the only ones hoping to collect the city's clay. As Valley City looks for ways to get rid of some of its clay, Barnes County townships are trying to get some, to repair damaged roads. It’s an expensive project which farmers especially need done quickly.
