FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A group that represents water interests in several North Dakota counties is holding a meeting to talk about the threat of drought in the Red River Valley.

Officials with the Garrison Diversion Conservancy District cite studies showing that eastern North Dakota will likely experience a major drought by 2050. Such an event would leave the Red River Valley short on drinking water for its residents.

Garrison Diversion is currently working on the Red River Valley Water Supply Project, which would provide a reliable water source during extreme dry conditions.

The conference is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. Thursday at the Rama Plaza Suites. It is free and open to the public.
