FARGO, N.D. — Government officials from North Dakota and Manitoba have scheduled a second round of discussions about water and flood control issues.

The group met for the first time in early October to talk about the quality of water removed from Devils Lake, a North Dakota water supply project, and flooding along the border between Manitoba and Pembina County.

The meeting is scheduled Monday in Washington.

Expected participants include North Dakota Sens. Kent Conrad and Byron Dorgan, North Dakota Rep. Earl Pomeroy, North Dakota Gov. John Hoeven, Canadian Ambassador to the U.S. Gary Doer, U.S. Ambassador to Canada Davis Jacobson, and Manitoba Premier Greg Selinger.

Dorgan and Selinger say they believe the parties are closer to finding solutions to some of the arguments over water.
