Bismarck airport getting $1.9M fed grant for wildlife control; money used for moving wetlands


BISMARCK, North Dakota — North Dakota's congressional delegation says the Bismarck airport is getting a $1.9 million federal grant for wildlife control.

The money comes from the U.S. Department of Transportation and is aimed at preventing birds and other wildlife from striking aircraft.

The delegation says the money will be used to move 60 acres of wetlands from the airport's property, and replace them with wetlands away from the airport.
