About the souris river

The Souris River is a 700-mile-long river that flows through Saskatchewan, North Dakota, and Manitoba. The river is named after the French word for mouse because of its winding path. The river has a long history of being used for transportation, fishing, and farming, but it also causes occasional flooding. The Souris River Basin is home to several reservoirs, including Lake Darling and Lake Darling Dam in North Dakota, which were constructed to manage water levels and prevent flooding. These reservoirs provide recreational opportunities, such as fishing and boating, and also support agricultural irrigation. The Souris River is an important water source for the region and is managed by various government agencies to balance the needs of agriculture, recreation, and flood control.
