Hoeven Announces Dam Rehabilitation Funds for Renwick Dam, Pembina County

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven today announced nearly $300,000 in grant funds for the Pembina County Water Resource District to renovate the Renwick Dam on Tongue River, a tributary of the Pembina River. These funds will support the second phase of the dam renovation, providing for a new spillway and embankment, and are awarded by the Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) through its Watershed Rehabilitation Program.

Hoeven Presses BNSF to Catch Up on Ag Shipments Before Harvest

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven this week pressed BNSF Railway Executive Chairman Matt Rose to relieve backlogs on agriculture shipments prior to the fall harvest season. BNSF committed to spot 450 cars per day and offer more shuttles this fall than in 2013 to relieve past due agriculture shipments. Hoeven also asked rail officials to come to North Dakota to hear directly from the state’s agriculture commodity groups. The senator expects that meeting to take place within the first two weeks of August.

“We continue pressing the railroad to eliminate backlogs and get our agriculture shipments moving for our producers, especially with the harvest season fast approaching,” said Hoeven. “I spoke with BNSF Chairman Matt Rose this week and he committed to provide additional railcars to help with shipping delays and prepare for the harvest.”

At its peak, BNSF had about 8,000 late cars in North Dakota. Today, the railroad...
