Flood repairs continue in Duluth two years after the devastating rains, and now new funding has been awarded to help.

The Minnesota Board of Water and Soil Resources (BOWSR) has awarded $3.6 million in flood relief grants to the City of Duluth, and an additional $1 million to nearby districts.

The funds will be used to continue recovery efforts from the June 2012 flooding.

BOWSR Executive Director John Jaschke was in Duluth on Thursday to announce the grants. He said the funds are both for repairs and for future prevention.

"We're in a mode of recovering from that event but also using these funds to prevent these things from happening again," he said.

The additional $1 million in funding is going to Carlton, Cook, Lake and South St. Louis Soil and Water Conservation Districts.
