(December 10) Reclamation completes step for eastern water supply BISMARCK - The Bureau 'of 'Reclamation on Dec. 4 released its Final Environmental Impact State— ment for the Eastern North Dakota Alternate Water Supply Project, ad- vancing an alternate water supply project to better meet the needs for the state. As proposed by North Dakota’s Garrison Diversion Conservancy District, the project would deliver up to 165 cubic feet of water per second from the McClusky Canal in central North Dakota to meet the need for an alternate water supply to the state—led Red River Valley Water Supply Project in eastern North Dakota. Reclamation evaluated six alternatives as part of its environ- mental review. The McClusky Canal and Missouri River North Alterna— tive is the preferred alternative. This alternative includes water quality treatment actions and criteria to fur— ther reduce the already low risk of a project-related transfer of aquatic in— vasive species from the Missouri River Basin to the Hudson Bay Basin. Information about each of the ex- amined alternatives, as well as other project information is available at: Driver licenSes due in 2020 must be renewed by Dec. 31 The North Dakota Department of Transportation reminds customers that all driver licenses, which expired after March 1, are due for renewal by Dec. 31 .

The plant grew extremely well. In fact, it has taken over the top of my file cabinet and frequently gets pinched when I shut drawers. The plant loves to be left alone and it has rewarded me with spectac- ular magenta pink blooms late No- vember or early December. How can you tell what type of holiday cactus you have? We have three main groups of holiday cacti. They are Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas cacti. These cacti have many hybrids and cultivars. They frequently are grouped together and are confused easily unless you know what to look for. , The secret lies in the stems Thanksgiving cacti have pornted, claw-shaped stern edges. The Christ— mas cacti have scalloped stem edges and the Easter cacti have rounded, smooth stems. If you are like me and need more of a visual guide to identify what type of cactus you have, check out the video by Calla Edwards, a North Dakota State University Extension agent in McLean County, on our Facebook page, www.facebook.corn/NDSUExtLGT. Another key identification char; acteristic is the season in which the Gardener By Carrie Knutson NDSU Extension Agent Grand Forks County plants naturally bloom. The plants re— quire different spans of long nights to bloom. The plants will bloom nat- urally around the holiday for which they are named. Thanksgiving cacti are the most common. They easily re-bloom with— out any extra effort on your part. They frequently are labeled and sold as r‘hristmas cacti 21'0"an or“: Issuer“y season. Christmas cacti might require a little more care to bloom. The plant will need complete darkness for at ‘ least 12 hours and cooler night time temperatures of 60 to 65 F to bloom. Easter cacti will bloom later in the winter as daylight increases and tem— peratures warm. The Easter cactus requires the longest span of long nights to bloom. ' Regardless of what type, holiday cacti are excellent houseplants. These plants can live a very long er ‘ ri Holiday cacti will bloom nat- urally around the holiday for which they are named. (NDSU Photo) time under proper care. Holiday cacti are not native to the desert. They come from the rainforests. The plants prefer moist, well—drained soil and bright indirect light, and benefit from fertilizer during the summer. The plants don’t like to be moved, espe- cially when they are blooming. So what type do I have? Well, mine is indeed a Christmas cactus. It really must like my office because it blooms reliably every year with no extra effort from me. Happy garden- ing!
