Letter: Re-evaluating the Need for the FM Diversion

Oxbow had already built a dike system after 2009 which would have protected the city to another similar record flood. But instead of pointing this out, the Diversion Authority instead bought out Oxbow’s strong opposition to the diversion project by offering a new golf course, new clubhouse, and additional housing, and cowardly Oxbow leaders took the check and ran.

Disinformation from Fargo Diversion Authority Chairman Darrell Vanyo

Yes Darrell, why did pro-diversion ilk pump $168+ million into the dam and diversion, $60+ million into Oxbow, $10.5 million into the Oxbow clubhouse…, without turning a shovel of dirt for the diversion channel and simultaneously redirecting funding away from permanent internal flood protection, that could protect the city that exists from the “next flood” that those impatient North Dakota officials want?
