Phillip M. Henry Comments to the USACE re: Fargo Moorhead Dam and Diversion

How is it possible, or even legal for the Corps to issue a pronouncement that upends the lives of family after family without any true concern for the damage, upheaval, and uncertainty it has caused?

In three short years, the Fargo Moorhead Dam and FM Diversion nearly doubled in cost from $900 million to $2.04 billion. The USACE intentionally compartmentalizes projects to keep concerned taxpayers out of sync with the process to remain unfettered and unaccountable. Fargo, ND and Moorhead, MN along with Cass and Clay counties are placing impracticality […]

Fargo and Cass want a pass.

Fargo and Cass want a pass.

As many as a thousand citizens will be forced to relocate due to the project. These are citizens who are not now in the flood plain requiring flood protection, while the project protects the development area of Fargo that is in the flood plain requiring protection. These developments were built with the full knowledge of […]
