From my friend Claire:
Canada and Manitoba have been asking for review of the project by the International Joint Commission, which administrates the Boundary Waters Treaty, but so far the United States has not agreed.
By going ahead with the Devil's Lake Outlet without proper assessment, North Dakota is endangering not only the downstream environments of North Dakota and Manitoba but also a long-standing, internationally acclaimed environmental agreement.
Inform yourself, and sign the petition if this project concerns you.
More information from Friends of the Earth:

- Send an E-letter to Paul Matrin voicing your concern.
You would think the state of North Dakota would give us better birthday present than this.
